A state of mental or emotional strain or tension resulting from adverse or demanding circumstances
Envelop in a protective or comforting way
Stress is a huge part of life nowadays. Busy lives, social pressures and the ever constant connection technology means that more people are suffering from stress and there are far more people struggling with anxiety and depression.
This April, Neom is encouraging people to take the #NeomStressLessChallenge - a programme designed to balance the emotions and soothe the soul. Central to this is their Cocooning candle which has to be one of my favourite Neom scents. The candle has a blend of six key oils, including anxiety-reducing Roman chamomile, deeply relaxing jasmine and three citrus essential oils (mandarin, lemon and orange) to combat blue feelings and boost immunity.
So the challenge is pretty simple:
Step 1 ) Light your Neom Cocooning candle and allow the aroma-therapeutic air to gently scent the space.
Step 2) Leave lit for at least 1-2 hours to feel the full effects of this calming treatment.
Step 3) Use once or repeat during stressful periods and keep track of your stress levels to report on your treatment.
I am all about finding new ways to relax and to help calm my mind. I've just had the busiest three months of my year and so am enjoying being able to totally chill out when I come home. The Cocooning candle is the perfect welcome home.
Neom have also launched an ezine which covers all things stress and is a great read- you can find it here.
