This year I’ve been making a more conscious effort to relax and balance my stress levels – between work, my social life, family commitments and volunteering, it’s tough to keep everything under control. But, as I’m sure many modern women can agree, balancing stress is easier said than done.
Nicola Elliott had the same problem when she was a busy journalist at Glamour magazine in London, where she worked intense hours and found it difficult to unwind at the end of the day. In an attempt to find a solution, she started mixing aromatherapy oils for herself and colleagues to help them relieve stress.
Her products were so popular that in 2005 she left her journalism job to found her own brand, NEOM ORGANICS. Her mission? Create 100% natural and organic products that are proven to benefit your wellbeing.
“It’s not that the candles don’t smell beautiful, but they aren’t just pretty candles and lovely smelling bath products on their own – they have true therapeutic benefits,” says Elliott.
NEOM’s products range from gorgeous diffusers, candles, room sprays and pillow mists to bath foams, body lotions, scrubs and shower oils – and it goes without saying, but they all smell delicious!
The formulas are carefully crafted to help you in five areas: getting better sleep, de-stressing, boosting energy, lifting mood or calming and relaxation. The essential oils used are so pure that they hit 50 million receptors in your nose, which then travel to a space that stores hormones. In essence, they can travel to tackle the deeper issue of what’s effecting sleeping patterns, mood, stress and energy levels.
I’ve tried the Tranquillity Room Spray & Pillow Mist, which is made of a yummy blend of 12 essential oils including English lavender, sweet basil and jasmine; a few sprays and my bedroom instantly smells like a relaxing oasis. Plus, the packing is also feminine and sleek – these are definitely the sort of products you’ll want to leave around your house.
The likes of Kate Moss, Kylie Minogue, Sienna Miller, Daisy Lowe and Gwyneth Paltrow are all fans of the brand – it’s time you give it a try, too.
NEOM products are made in the UK and available online at NEOM’s website.
