Every day begins with the breath, and the scent of powerful essential oils can harmonise each inhalation leading to a therapeutic response both physically and emotionally.
This is the philosophy that lies at the heart of ELEMIS and where it all began way back in 1990. To me, the launch of our new LIFE ELIXIRS range is the perfect culmination of a 27 year aromatic journey.
It is what initially drew me to this fabulous aromatic range and where my love for the ELEMIS brand began so I'm so excited that we are back to mindfulness and focusing on what's happening in the present moment, both for body and mind. There are times when we all need to take a moment, when the day overwhelms us and these five essential aromatics help settle the mind and relax the body, bringing back a sense of balance. In the beginning, we worked with just 12 essential oils, maybe using only one or two in a single base. We now have up to 19 essential oils in a carrier base of four in any one product. This provides long-lasting aromatics that linger well beyond a luxurious bath or shower experience, and which have been independently proven through user trials to have a profound effect on the body and mind.
I was quite surprised to read recently that our lifestyle choices account for the largest ageing factor on the skin. I know that I - and so many of my clients - long for that all-important 'me time '. Now when I talk to clients about luxuries, it's not about material possessions but about having the luxury of time to relax.
The new LIFE ELIXIRS range is made up of five aromatics to help you breathe balance back into your world. Each aromatic comes in a bath and shower elixir, scented candle, and a perfume oil rollerball, perfect for applying directly to a pulse point. To me this makes so much more sense than spraying an alcohol based perfume that only clings to what you’re wearing - an oil is highly compatible with the skin and not irritating or drying. As the oil warms on your skin, you’ll feel like you are wearing the fragrance rather than the fragrance wearing you. Light a scented candle and enjoy the sweet release of a warm shower or bath with one of the following exquisite aromatics.
Calm - Clary Sage, Lavandin and Rosewood.
This blend is perfect for when the pressures of life take over, when you want to create an oasis of calm for the mind and choose your own speed for the day, not the speed that the world expects.
Clarity - Bitter Orange, Cardamom and Ginger.
This blend clears your mind when life gets too loud. It’s both invigorating and awakening, helping to sharpen your concentration, and allowing you to take on the day with confidence.
Fortitude - Geranium, Cedarwood and Ylang Ylang.
An empowering blend to restore your centre and encourage confidence. Feel grounded, determined and strong to the core. For when you need to stand tall and acknowledge the power you hold within.
Embrace - Frankincense, Vetiver and Rose Pepper.
Fall in love with this sensuous blend that ignites body, mind and soul. Channel your energy and know that nothing can stop you with this exhilarating aromatic that inspires a sense of adventure.
Sleep - Patchouli, Elemi and Palmarosa.
This blend allows you to leave the day behind and wrap yourself in a blanket of calm. Switch off your mind, reset your inner rhythm, and release yourself into the safe hands of deep, restorative sleep.
Whatever fragrance you are drawn to, this range really is the pinnacle of modern aromatics, it is sensory science that tunes in to you.
I can't wait for you to be able to learn more when we launch LIFE ELIXIRS on QVC UK Beauty Channel in June. Stay tuned!
