Let’s face it, the dark Winter nights after the Christmas excitement are not always the most welcoming so we have decided to embrace the following few weeks and months and use the time wisely to recharge those batteries, detox the mind and body and generally practise self-care so that come Spring we are ready to emerge fully rested and recharged.
Self-care practise has been high on the agenda in the DSC studio this January as we have started implementing Mindful Mondays (sharing mindful tips) and Thoughtful Thursdays (secretly treating a special individual), and we thought we would share some of our finds in the hope that they may help you too…
Winter Pamper Tips
⸙ Enjoy a long soak or a steamy shower
There are few better ways to end a day battling the elements than lighting some candles, putting on your favourite podcast and unwinding in a hot bath.
⸙ Relax with a hot chocolate and good film or book.
Current DSC favourites are Emily in Paris, The Tourist and, perhaps somewhat ironically How Not to Kill your Houseplants!
⸙ Wrap up warm and embrace the Winter weather.
We remind ourselves each day how lucky we are to have Dartmoor on our doorstep to blow the cobwebs away, however the weather at best can be changeable and at worst very unforgiving! No two walks are ever the same and we always return feeling refreshed, in awe of nature’s ability to lighten our spirits and put daily setbacks in perspective.
⸙ Light a candle and practise deep breathing or follow a meditation app.
We are loving Headspace at the moment. It’s perfect for those, like us, who have a little difficulty soothing the chattering voices and to-do lists in our head.
We really can’t stress the importance of self-care, especially during these ongoing difficult times so, to help you a little we are offering 20% off all our full sized, body oils, bath salts and aromatherapy candles throughout January.
Please do take advantage of this great offer and dedicate a little time each day to yourself.
PS We’re also having a little bit of a clear out in the new studio to make room for fresh new products so this month we have a special offer on our 200g bags of sud-standard offcuts! Usually £3.50 each these are now just £1.75 throughout the month of January both online and in our studio shop. Choose from our entire range of scents (send us a little note at checkout) or leave it to us to surprise you!
