There's something particularly comforting about the word autumn. Images of burnt orange and burgundy leaves, layering up with our favourite scarves and coats and cosy nights in curled up on the couch instantly spring to mind. With many of us appreciating the little things in life as a result of the additional time spent at home over the last few months, setting aside some time for yourself in the evening is one way of helping to enhance your wellbeing during these uncertain times. As we welcome the start of a new season, discover our top five essentials to create the ultimate cosy night in.
Introducing cosy blankets and cushions are some of the most quick and easy ways to create a cosy atmosphere at home. Thicker textures can completely transform the look and feel of your surroundings for the season ahead. Opt for neutral tones to create a soothing ambience, or autumnal tones of burnt orange and burgundy for a seasonal switch.
Scent the Scene
Autumnal evenings wouldn't be complete without the ambient glow of a scented candle. Infused with essential oils to help relax and reset, decorate your home with the scents of the season with some of our hand poured scented candles. Soothe your senses with notes of rose petals, musk and floral citrus in After the Rain, or the warming notes of Cedarwood & Citrus for a seasonal refresh.
Call a Loved One
Now more than ever, keeping in touch with our loved ones has never been so important. Whether you prefer a quick catch-up over the phone or a video call with your nearest and dearest, taking some time out of your day to speak to those closest to us can help us to switch off and unwind at the end of a long day.
Escape the chill of the new season by drawing yourself a long, warm bath. Wash your worries away with the soothing notes of our After the Rain Bath & Shower Gel, or ease any areas of tension with our Lavender & Black Pepper Muscle Soak.
Hug in a Mug
Love them or loathe them, the distinctive chill in the air and darker evenings drawing in are some of the defining features of autumn. Packed full of antioxidants and vitamins, introducing a herbal tea into your evening wind-down rituals can help to clear your mind, prepare your body for a restful night's sleep and provide a little extra warmth during cooler evenings. Try chamomile or lavender tea, both renowned for their relaxing properties, to help soothe mind and body before bed.
