Wow Beauty Affirmation Notebooks
Be Inspired by our Affirmation Notebooks! I’ve been a believer in the power of positive statements for as long as I can remember…I think that my initial passion was ignited by the groundbreaking writers like Shakti Gawain, Louise Hay and Deepak Chopra. Their writings are powerful reminders that we have so much power within ourselves to transform and heal. I wanted to create something to share with you and the notebooks were born…they are a collection of affirmations that will ground, uplift and motivate you!

LIHA ASÉ GODDESS ROLLERBALLS
Each of the Asé natural 13ml rollerball in their new collection is named after a Yoruba Goddess from the Pantheon of Orishas, traditional earth goddesses that have often been replaced or demonised by organised Western Religions. As West African tradition is held up by Oral histories rather than written, it is important for the wider Diasporic memory to honour and hold up the myths and origin stories of our ancestors.
Their all – natural rollerballs are made up of a Marula oil base, and unique blends of pure organic essential oils that reflect the properties of three of the goddesses, or Orishas. Take some time out of your day to go inward. Inhale, visualise. The fragrances can be layered and mixed and matched throughout the day and come in a package of three.

Ever since I started using these earlier this year after having them on my shopping list I’ve not been without them… you can purchase a full set which is ideal for gifting! So far I’ve tried ‘focus, energise, create’ and I swear that when I use it I become more productive. Breathe deep, seek peace is lovely when I want to quiet my mind. These are similar to Bach flower remedies where the essence of a flower is distilled and make the perfect gift, especially after the year we’ve had.

My ‘bed of nails’ accupressure mat is the latest addition to my wellbeing toolkit. Admittedly it may look and sound like a torture instrument but heres the thing: because it’s based on accupressure so the spikes on the mat are specially designed to target your muscles in the most relaxing way. it takes some getting used to but it’s worth it as it’s meant to help with stress reduction, improving sleep, Back and neck pain and better circulation.

Anatome Recovery and Sleep
I’m an aromatherapy addict and I’ve found myself relying on the power of this ancient art even more than usual. I came across Anatome last year with their unique blend of aromatherapy and wellness. I love how they blend aromatherapy, nutrition and skincare to help to create bespoke wellbeing solutions. This lavender essential oil blend for sleep features 22 essential oils and will help you fall asleep, supporting eight hours of deep rest. They uniquely blend the nurturing scents of Cornish, Provençal and Himalayan Lavenders due to their high levels of linalyl acetate and linalool which have proven relaxing and sleep-inducing properties.
