We're all very aware how important our space is for our mental health and wellbeing. Most people now spend a lot of time at home which means your space needs to be welcoming, comforting and somewhere that makes you feel happy.
Turning your home into your own personal sanctuary may seem difficult but there are many simple changes you can make that can help you transform your space.
Add Calming Scents With A Candle
Never underestimate the power of scent, especially in the home. Fragrances can really change the mood and feeling of a space, making you feel calmer and bring in good vibes.
Candles are an easy and fun way to bring beautiful fragrances into your home and who doesn’t love picking out a favourite scent to make their space feel like their own.
The Salt and Rainbows Rose Quartz Crystal Candle is just what your space needs with its refreshing scent. It emits a tantalising fusion of fresh coconut and lime with invigorating lemon verbena smoothed by luscious vanilla.
Soothe & Diffuse
There has been a big boom in diffusers over the last few years and for good reason. These devices use the calming power of essential oils to fill the air with a peaceful mist. There’s something so luxurious about breathing in the purified air from a diffuser.
The In Essence 360 Blush Diffuser is the perfect way to bring this sense of calm. It pairs perfectly with the In Essence Ylang Ylang Pure Essential Oil that is used to relieve mild anxiety and stress.
Bring Nature Inside
Adding plants to your home is one of the easiest and most successful ways to invite serenity into your space. Bringing the natural world inside never fails to make us feel more calm and relaxed. Other than being aesthetically pleasing, plants also freshen up the air in your space and can offer a pleasing nature scent.
If you’re worried about tending to house plants, there are plenty of species out there that are extremely low maintenance and are made to thrive in these specific conditions.
Clean Space, Clean Mind
Although it seems cliché, a clean space really does make for a clean mind. There is no relaxing to be done if you are faced with a messy room. For most, cleaning isn’t a fun activity, but the end result is always worth it and allows you to enjoy your sanctuary without worrying about dirty dishes or laundry that needs to be put away.
For those who struggle with cleaning and tidying up, try spreading it out into small sections. Set a timer for 10 minutes and see how much you can get done. You might be surprised to find it’s a lot easier once you just get started.
Create A Luxury Bathroom Experience
The bathroom is widely used as a place to relax and destress. From soothing skincare routines to much needed soaks, the bathroom is the perfect place for a sanctuary.
You can’t go wrong with a heavenly scented bath soak that will also leave your skin feeling soft and smooth. Enjoy this Bath Rehab Bath Soak that is packed with roses, a natural mood enhancer and is the ultimate in luxury bathing.
Or if you don’t have a bath, there are great body washes and scrubs you can spoil yourself with. Give yourself a total body refresh with the endota Arnica & Menthol Recovery Scrub. This purifying scrub uses the healing power of nature to detoxify and revive your body.
Declutter Your Life
Just like with cleaning, if your space is over-cluttered and chaotic, it can lead to anxiety and stress. It can be a big challenge, but decluttering and organising your space can make you and it feel more serene and you are able to enjoy your home without feeling overwhelmed.
Try the 10 minute cleaning trick if you also struggling with decluttering. Or break it into small areas, for example, set a goal to clean out a junk drawer. Setting little tasks you can accomplish can be extremely motivating.
