Washing away the Sunday scaries with Apothecary & Me
For many of us, practising self-care often gets pushed to the bottom of our never-ending list of things to do. And whilst self-care and wellness come in many forms, from therapy to exercise to eating healthily, we also need to prioritise taking time for ourselves to just switch off.
After a long week at work or a heavy weekend, the last thing you want to do is gear yourself up to do it all over again on Monday, and this is when the Sunday scaries start to settle in. Let’s put this anxious energy to one side and instead, focus on winding down for a cosy Sunday evening and looking after that precious mind of yours. You might want to cook your favourite dinner, put on some laundry for the week ahead and get out your fanciest PJs. But the best remedy of all is a nice hot bath - light some candles, grab a big glass of water and stick on some relaxing music or that book you’ve been meaning to read and let the pampering begin.
One of our favourite products to use is the Apothecary & Me Floral Balance Bath Oil, which contains perfect ingredients for relaxation and healing properties for your skin.
Pop a couple of full pipettes under hot running water and feel all the stress melt away with the luxurious spa-like scent of petitgrain, ylang ylang, neroli and rosewood. The wellbeing benefits are just another reason you’ll want to incorporate this into your weekly self-care routine.
Apothecary & Me create products using all natural ingredients that are rich in antioxidants, are anti-inflammatory and even help re-hydrate and soothe sensitive skin. As someone suffering from dry, eczema-prone skin during the winter, this product has been incredibly hydrating without feeling greasy. They’re passionate about treating skin with kindness through natural, plant-based oils that are packed with vitamins, all whilst keeping a minimal footprint on the planet: there’s even a tree planted with every order!
The Floral Balance scent is perfect for helping level out those worries about the week ahead, and can even help with hormonal imbalances. Try popping a couple of drops into your palms or a flannel and taking a long, deep inhale to feel grounded and present, and take hold of that whirlwind of emotions.
They offer a range of natural products on their website including energising bath oils, body scrubs, face oils and reusable bamboo pads. Everything comes in beautiful, sustainable packaging that looks like it comes straight from an ancient apothecary’s shelf, and there’s a scent to suit every mood. With their range of gift sets, there’s something for everyone and a thoughtful reminder to our loved ones to relax and take time for themselves.
