Ever since the launch of Feather & Down last May, it has held a constant place in my bathroom. Used by my whole family, the range offers products that can ease you into a sense of calm and rest, allowing you to fall asleep more easily.
With March being national bed month, I thought which brand would be better to share on my Spa Sunday page than Feather & Down. Whenever I am feeling restless, or uneasy and in need of a good sleep I make sure I use a Feather & Down Product, in-fact the Bed Spray (HERE) has become a nightly ritual, spraying it over my bed an hour or two before sleep. As I have spoken in depth before about this brand and the products HERE, I wanted to share some different products from the range that I have been using these past few weeks to help me unwind and relax.
Sweet Dreams Bath Essence 500ml £7 –
I am a bath girl through and through, there is nothing I look forward to more than my Sunday Spa session at home which always begins with a long, leisurely, warm bath. This bath essence is absolutely divine, I have actually gotten through many bottles of this product because I adore it so much. It creates the softest, fluffiest bubbles, makes the water feel soft and silky and has the most dreamy scent. Lavender and Chamomile oils blend beautifully to help create the most relaxing bath possible. Afterwards my skin feels beautifully soft and supple, which is an added bonus and I just feel relaxed and pampered and ready to drift off. I cannot recommend this product highly enough. Does not contain SLS or parabens. Purchase HERE
“If you raise your temperature a degree or two with a bath, the cooling process at bedtime is likely to help you fall asleep faster.”
Sweet Dreams Soothing Body Oil 150ml £8 –
Another part of my pampering session is shaving my legs and exfoliating my skin, after all there is nothing nicer than slipping into a clean bed with silky skin is there? So what better way to moisturise my skin than with a beautiful body oil. Now I love loads of different body products, including balms, butters and lotions from all ends of the brand spectrum, but have also really been enjoying this. This is a really beautiful blend of essentials oils, that smell so relaxing, much stronger than the bath essence but not overtly so. I just spray the oil onto my warm skin and massage in, leave it to sink in for just a few moments and then dress. Couple this with the scent already lingering from the bath essence and you are well on your way to the land of nod, even if your partner has other ideas because you smell so good. Nudge, Nudge, wink, wink. Purchase HERE
“Massaging your skin with body oils can reduce stress and anxiety by decreasing muscle tension which can help to improve relaxation.”
Calming Candle £18 –
Said to contain essential oils, this candle, which is beautiful in design in the glass holder, is said to calm the mind and fill the home with complete serenity. Unfortunately, this candle does not fill the home, or even the room with scent BUT, it does fill the immediate area. So if like me, you work from home, this is nice to burn next to your computer heading towards the end of a busy day when you are feeling frazzled and need to get through. It would also be lovely to burn next to yourself whilst you are reading. Great as a personal fragrance candle, but unfortunately I didn’t notice the scent linger around the room. However, I wanted to mention it as I know many of you shop this brand.
If like me you love to take time out for yourself on a Sunday and have a really lovely pamper session, read a book, have a warm bath and an early night, I think you will love Feather & Down. Super affordable, easily available from Boots and often on 3 for 2 there are many products in the range for you to try. I think you will find, like me, you keep coming back for more.
How do you love to relax? Are you a bath and book person or do you prefer a nice country walk? I would really love to know so please leave me a comment below.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding please check with your GP before using essential oils.
