De-stress naturally with Indigo Herbs + Win




A few weeks back I was sent a De-stress and Unwind natural health gift set from Indigo herbs to try out and it was perfect timing in the run up to the summer holidays and even when you prepare as much as possible, being a freelancer and then having the kids all day every day can become quite a balancing act and I often do feel stress creep in a little.

I am really passionate about natural remedies and approach to things in live and the power of plants have been used for thousands of years. I started drinking Chamomile when I was around 13yrs old, herbals teas have always been very popular in South Africa with Rooibos being the nationals favourite drink. The gift set comes with a 100% pure Chamomile flower tea and it's a real tonic for nerves and is great when you want something to help calm from the inside out.




The gift set also comes with with two aromatherapy oils, one is an essential oil which can be used in an oil burner or a few drops added to a relaxing bath. The essentials oil is made up of Basil, Geranium, Grapefruit and peppermint have been blended with the aim to help ease stress and tension and I can highly recommend using it. I let all my worries drift away while reading a book in the tub and it's one of the easiest ways to practise some self care.

The other bottle is a de-stress and unwind massage oil and can be used everyday by massaging into your skin especially around your neck and shoulders and is warming and nurturing and you can use this as part of a self care ritual of a tea, bath and then massage.




I have also been trying out their De-stress and Unwind pulse point roller which is really great when your busy and on the go. We travel a lot so having something like this when you start to feel stress or overwhelm creep in and your on the road or travelling. It's a pocket friendly 10ml point roller with 100% pure botanical ingredients and is both soothing and invigorating and I am going to have to buy a replacement soon as I have really loved using this.

Best of all is that I get to offer one lucky reader the chance to win both the De-stress and Unwind Gift set as well as the pulse point roller worth just under £25. Entering is super simple with the rafflecopter below and the giveaway ends on the 22nd August 2018. Open to UK residents only.
