SAM'S TOP TIPS FOR..
I’m in full hygge mode!
Here are some ways I am embracing the changing seasons:
Firstly, i’d be remiss not to elaborate about the Fall | Winter Bath and Body Oil! If you could bottle a hug, this is what it would be like - warming, nurturing and intensely comforting.
It can be used as a soothing moisturiser for the body or to soak - perfect for this time when the weather begins to cool and self-care switches to evening soaks in the tub (with tea and a great book). I invite you to cocoon yourself in the comforting aromas of Blue Tansy, Clove Bud and Red Mandarin and embrace the stillness and sensuality of the moment. Breathe in those beautiful scents of Lavender, Benzoin and Aniseed essential oils that support the body by relieving stress, increasing circulation and boosting immunity.
Ok, moving on from that plug, I’ve also been busy cooking. The kitchen is one of my happy places and soups, stews and other comfort foods are on repeat this month! Roasted tomato soup is great one for using up the end of summer toms from the garden - roast, then blend them with a little garlic, stock and tin of coconut milk + add a little chilli if you like some extra spice.
As it gets dark earlier, I’ve been cosying up with warmer blankets, books and candles - a beautiful candle and my current favourite choice is the Maple "Into The Woods“ - gosh it is heavenly.
I’ve been moving my body at my favourite studio where everyone is so kind and friendly, and motivated and strong - Bar Method. Find yourself a studio where there is a strong sense of community and motivating yourself to exercise during the colder months won’t be as difficult!
Oh and I’ve still been cold dipping to calm the nervous system and keep me grounded and I’ve given up coffee for the same reason! I’ll keep you posted on how that’s going…
