These are stressful times for sure, no matter what is going on in your life. So let’s try out a gift set that’s designed to help you feel less stressed. Even better, I’ve got one for you to win too.
The Mindful Moments gift set you see here is part of the Made for LifeTM range by Spiezia Organics. It’s part of a range of 100% organic skincare and wellbeing products. They’re all handmade in the heart of Cornwall using ingredients that are as close to home as possible. This award-winning British skincare range is suitable for even the most sensitive skin.
The brand are organic pioneers – in 1999 Spiezia Organics was the first UK company to achieve 100% organic certification across the entire collection from the Soil Association. It has striven to help them create and enforce accreditation for beauty products in the UK ever since.
The gift set itself is quite tiny, but the details are exquisite. From the dried roses in the packaging to the flourish of white ribbon and even the matte texture of the little glass bottles, there’s something very pleasing about this gift set. It’s like something Alice would find down the rabbit hole at a time when she really needed to calm the fuck down.
When you open the box, you’ll find an organic herbal tea bag in the lid, to let the calming commence. Underneath the lid, this beautifully presented gift set contains three 10ml bottles of scented oils. Each contains a mix of specially blended organic ingredients designed for:
- Connect and Nuture (aquamarine bottle)
Lavender, geranium and roman chamomile scents evoke inner calm and help connect with the grounding, peaceful presence of nature. The lavender in this makes it ideal to help you drift off for a peaceful snooze.
- Focus and Clarity (yellow bottle)
Clear your head and find focus with this fragrant blend of vetiver, bergamont and frankincense. To my nose, this is the most unusual of the three scents. Which is unexpected, since I’ve encountered them all before, though maybe not in this combination. It’s quite a ‘wake up’ sort of fragrance so that must be where the focus comes from.
- Uplift and Energise (purple bottle)
Rosemary, sage and thyme revive and energise. This is the one to reach for when you are procrastinating about your work and have got sidetracked into refreshing Facebook 50 times a day.
With each of these oils, the idea is to place a few drops on your fingertips, rub them together to slightly warm the oil and release the scents, then gently clasp your hands over your face. Take deep breaths to calm yourself.
Because of the openings of the bottles, it’s slightly tricky just to pour our a drop or two – a glass dropper might have been easier. But maybe this is part of the point since even this forces you to slow down whilst using the set. To me, this is the idea gift for someone who needs to slow down – maybe a stressed-out friend or just for yourself if you need a treat. The little bottles are pretty enough to sit on your desk and decant a few drops when you need a pick-me-up throughout the day.
