This month we love...finding our inner calm.
As the seasons change and we prepare to spend more time indoors we have been thinking about ways we can support our self-care, be mindful and present and seek inner calm at home.
Here are a few ideas to help you create calming moments at home:
The last couple of years have seen a boom in online Yoga classes, and no wonder as Yoga is good for mind and body
Why is Yoga so good?

We will shortly be stocking yoga mats sprays from Cumbrian brand BOUS too. ( expected by mid October)
On average we have 60-70,000 thoughts a day, everyone is busy and modern life is just stressful. It is not easy to block out all the noise and tune into our inner thoughts but meditation can help.
Meditation can give you a sense of calm, peace and balance that can benefit both your emotional well-being and your overall health. You can also use it to relax and cope with stress by refocusing your attention on something calming. Even ten minutes of meditation a day can make a big difference.
Chakra healing stones have been used for centuries for holistic treatments and during meditation. There are 7 main Chakra locations that connect to energy points on the body, these handy little gift sets contain all 7 main stones. Use them to place on your body or hold during meditation
Create a sensory space
When creating a calm and relaxing space at home it is important not to forget how important our sense of smell is. Our sense of smell is incredibly powerful so designing spaces which connect us to natural fragrance can have a big impact on our mental and physical wellbeing.
Natural fragrance connects you to nature. FERN+FELL candles are handmade in Caldbeck, made with only a blend of coconut & rapeseed wax and pure essential oils. They contain no chemicals, no soy and no synthetic ingredients. Pure and simple.
Each fragrance is designed to provide holistic and aromatherapy benefits to support physical and mental wellbeing. Eucalyptus + Bay is a favourite fragrance of many yoga teachers as it aids respiratory function, cleanses the mind and uplifts mood.
Natural incense creates a very soothing atmosphere. These MUSE incense sticks are made with natural ingredients and essential oils. They are blended with cold pressed organic Jojoba oil and each soothes, motivates or balances. We have three scents in stock choose from Sandalwood, Ylang Ylang or Frankincense.
