From the NEOM Community: Products For Lockdown
Posted by PR Neom
We’ve made no secret of the fact we’re reaching for the things we know work for us during this second phase of lockdown and tier restrictions, and it’s no surprise our NEOM community has been doing the same. Read on for some serious self-gifting inspo, or spread the good vibes and complete that present list.
These 100% natural fragrances are sleep in a bottle. They are packed with ingredients like lavender, patchouli and chamomile that are known to have a calming effect, helping ease symptoms of anxiety and depression in some cases. And yes, they promote great sleep! Choose from our two sleepiest scents – Bedtime Hero is a fresher fragrance while Perfect Night’s Sleep is ideal for those who love a classic English Lavender. Know someone who’s been working out of their bedroom? These little mists are perfect for reinforcing that mental barrier between work time and sleep, a real sanity-saver at the moment.
We launched these in 2020 amid lockdown and honestly can’t remember what we did before. Just put this down as the year we learned why magnesium is SO important. Each of our whippy butters contains a hefty dose of wonder mineral magnesium and it’s brilliantly effective when absorbed through your skin, especially along with nourishing ingredients like shea butter and aloe vera. And for the still uninitiated, the reasons you NEED magnesium: It speeds up muscle recovery after workouts, boosts your stress response, optimises the levels of vitamins you take (including that all-important Vitamin D) AND actually helps EVERY SINGLE organ function properly. Massaging in one of these is the perfect self-care moment – and they are the perfect gift for the gym junkie in your life or someone who just needs a few more of those all-important moments.
How about that lockdown routine? Not only does it help make sure you’re squeezing self-care into your day, but it can actually be one of the joys of a long evening, and motivating in the morning. Our face oils are the product to try if you’ve been meaning to embrace oil, they’re 100% natural and YES oils are fantastic for ALL skin types, oily and dry. Plus if you’re still on the lookout for gifts, not only are they perfect for someone who needs a wellbeing boost or moments for themselves, but they make a lovely luxe little parcel too.
Top of the list of things we’re grateful for in lockdown: our Wellbeing Pods. And it turns out you all are too! Little wonder when they are the best way to get natural fragrance throughout your home at the touch of a button, and you can switch up the oil to suit your mood, or go from workday to rest time. The bespoke design looks absolutely beautiful in any home, and we firmly believe wrapping up one of these puts you firmly at the top of the present-buying tree.
One of the saving graces of winter lockdown was Christmas cheer starting whenever we wanted it. This was NOT the year for judgement if you wanted a mince pie mid-October, or to put up some lights as soon as the clocks went back. And the perfect addition to that festive home haven? Christmassy scents of course. Switching your usual oil for Perfect Peace into your pod, or placing a Christmas Wish candle in the windowsill just made all of our homes feel instantly festive. If you’re being hosted this Christmas, something scented makes the perfect thank you for your host, and you’ll give them the moment of calm they’re craving once the cooking and presents are over.
