When it comes to giving myself a night off, it’s not a regular occurrence. Between working, catching up with emails, seeing friends and blogging, it can sometimes feel like I need (at least) an extra hour in the day to get through everything. So, for 2018, I’ve decided to treat myself to an evening offline every so often. In theory, I’d like this to be once a week, but realistically I’m going to try for once a month. I’m going to turn off my phone, turn up a bit of music, and catch up on some reading. Of course, it’s also going to be a perfect time to treat my skin to a little r&r too! A duo of products I’ve set aside for these evenings is Sanatio Naturalis Oils in Jojoba and Geranium.
The jojoba oil is odourless, and acts as a carrier oil, so you can add whichever essential oils you like. It’s got a lovely lightweight texture, which deeply hydrates skin without feeling greasy and it’s perfect for fighting winter-dry skin. My essential oil of choice is Geranium, which has a host of benefits. One of the main ones is stress relief, but it also reduces blood pressure and improves circulation too. It’s an easy way to take a little bit better care of myself, and I just adore the fragrance too – it makes my whole bathroom smell like a luxe spa, and on a cold winter’s night, I’m not sure that there is anything better!
