Walk in, shut the door, drop your bags and relax. When the world is in its constant state of flux, home is the one place of comfort, security, safety and peace. Home is our safety net: our harmony hotspot. It indulges all the senses, yet the easiest way to instantly transform the atmosphere in your home – and yourself – is with aroma.

Welcome

The first impression of your home is that step through the door. How does it make you feel? My own home is full of the aromas of our pure candle oils that burn as a harmony trio in the hallway. Place candles and diffusers in the entrance of your home as the ultimate sensory hug hello.

Bathe

Create the most comforting of experiences with an indulgent, soporific bath of Himalayan bath salts and a relaxing blend of vetiver, melissa and chamomile essential oils, then take long, deep abdominal breaths to help reduce any feelings of anxiety or exhaustion. To boost confidence, try sandalwood and ylang-ylang; to balance, choose geranium and orange.

Sleep

Lower the lights, snuggle down: warmth and comfort are key to help improve the quality of your sleep. Choose relaxing notes that appeal, such as lavender, rose, geranium, and ylang-ylang, either alone in a diffuser or mixed as a blend. Or, add your chosen oils to a clean mister (like the kind used for indoor plants), shake well then spritz high in the air, over pillows, sheets and towels from a distance of two–three feet.
