Embrace the season with neroli, blood orange, benzoin, ho wood and cardamom.
It's more than just a scent. It's a source of joy and magic for your daily life. More than just uplifting your spirit, it acts as a steadfast anchor, guiding you through the complexities of the winter season and its ever-evolving challenges.
It whispers to your soul to slow down, to gracefully decline some plans and encourages you to embrace more moments of rest, just as nature does during this time of year. This limited edition scent will be available for purchase until the arrival of Spring Equinox in 2024, bringing the essence of winter's wisdom into your life.
Before each use, shake the bottle gently to mix the oils.
Apply to your wrists, neck and temples whenever you need to.
Roll some into the palms of your hands, cup your hands over your nose and take three big deep breaths. When we inhale essential oils, the aromatic compounds are carried into our olfactory system, stimulating our sense of smell and triggering various physiological and emotional responses. A perfect way to remind you to be slow and in the moment during a cold winters day.
Children can use this blend, so get them to do this when they are feeling a bit wild and need some calm! This will automatically put you and your child, into a more settled state of mind.
In December 2022 I read Kathrine May's book, Wintering. It's such an inspiring book that shows how difficult times can be opportunities for growth. It's like a guide that helps you see the good even when things are tough. The author, Katherine May, shares stories and wisdom that show how slowing down and facing hard times can actually help us become stronger and find new ways to thrive. It's all about finding hope and learning from the tough times in life.
After I had read this book, I immediately cancelled any social plans in January and took the opportunity to 'winter'. From doing this, I discovered that January wasn't as bad as it normally seems. It was empowering saying no to things and my body enjoyed the rest. In fact, I enjoyed it so much that I 'wintered' until mid-March.
I found that I created space in my mind for more creativity and out of that, the idea to make a Wintering blend was born.
I hope you enjoy this scent as much as I enjoyed creating it. The essential oils which I chose for this blend, have not been used in any of my other scents. It really is truly unique and one I am so very proud of.
