The weather has shifted; the clocks have gone back and the nights have drawn in - which means autumn is here. Suddenly a pair of cosy cashmere socks and a mug of hot chocolate seem much more welcoming than going out.
During this shift of seasons, it can be easy to fall into a slump; however I love this time of year as it means I can make the most time at home where I surround myself with mood-boosting scents. There are two scents which I ensure I keep on hand during autumn and that’s lemon and rose.
Lemon has a clean, sharp and fresh aroma which makes it the perfect way to start the day to enliven the body, first thing, and recharge the soul - lemon is known to help blood flow. At Neom we combine lemon oil with sweet basil (in our scent called ‘Refresh’) which is a really uplifting and stimulating - getting you ready for the day ahead. It’s also perfect if you’re a little overworked this time of year too.
It is also important to support your mood too. Rose oil is perfect. It’s the ultimate feel-good scent for lifting your mood and it’s great to use on an evening to combat daily stress, as it works as a natural anti-depressant.
We use Moroccan rose oil in the Neom fragrances. These roses are so precious they require a very specific soil and climate to grow. We pick the buds from a vast Moroccan oasis which is 35km long, then add this precious oil to two fragrances.
Rose promotes a state of relaxed well-being with its rich, floral, petally aroma and I would recommend this to anyone.
Happy autumn everyone, make it one where you feel-good.
