5 Min Read

Shorter days, darker nights and the chill of winter. Although some of us might relish in the quiet joys of cosy nights in curled up by the fire, the lack of natural light and plummeting temperatures during winter months can affect our mood. Combined with the festive period coming to a close, the return of the ‘January Blues’ can be an all too familiar feeling as we begin the start of a New Year.

Carving some time out of your week, no matter how small, to enjoy a moment of calm for yourself can help make all the difference to your mood and wellbeing. Whether it’s a brisk walk in the fresh air, calling loved ones or coming home to the inviting warmth of a long bath, there are many different ways we can help to boost our mood over winter. 

Infused with natural extracts and inspired by the ancient crafts of the alchemist, discover the antidote to modern living with our heritage Apothecary collection.
