We couldn’t let Stress Awareness Month come to an end without spotlighting one of our favourite brands, ilapothecary.
Boasting ‘products with purpose’, the award-winning British brand ilapothecary prides itself on healing with its 100% natural products infused with powerful remedial ingredients, including live strem cells, gemstones, vitamins, and aromatherapy oils. Their pioneering range of products have reacted to modern mental stresses, providing everyday digital detoxes and anti-pollution remedies, while also focusing on hormonal imbalances and body fatigue across the brand.
ilapothecary nurtures the face, body and mind with its wholly natural remedies (made in the UK) to help all of us relieve stress, ‘Beat the Blues’ and improve sleeping behaviours. Wellbeing is at the core of ilapothecary, with all of the products purposefully crafted to be multi-purpose and target different problems, including anxiety, nervous tension and headaches. Some of our favourites are blended with fragrant ingredients like Sandalwood, Lavender, Rose and Blue Chamomile, which provide a tranquil and calming aroma.
For Beauty at The Fragrance Shop’s final Stress Awareness Month brand spotlight, we’re taking you through our must-have ilapothecary products to introduce you to the brand…
- Calm Butterfly’s Soothing Balm
- Magnesium and Amethyst Deep Bath Soak
- Vitamin Rich A C D E Face Oil
- Beat The Blues Gift Set
The Calm Butterfly’s Soothing Balm is an all-purpose remedy which helps ease tension, anxiety and headaches but also scar tissue, and it generally calms and softens the skin. Suitable for all skin types, the balm can be rubbed into nervous tummies, the chest when feeling anxious and the temples to ease headaches. Featuring Arnica, Calendula, Lavender and Rose, the aromatic balm smells as divine as it feels. Also, it can be used during pregnancy and as a baby balm, proving just how calming and nourishing it truly is.
ilapothecary’s Magnesium and Amethyst Deep Relax Bath Soak is a rich blend of Magnesium (a key stress-reducing ingredient) and mineral rich salts known to relax muscles and help ease nervous tension. The incredibly calming bath soak is enriched with relaxing and reparative oils, including Amber, Benzoin oil and Amethyst, creating a peaceful and restorative bathing experience to bring you back to centre. We used this in the evening to unwind and the sleep improvement was unlike anything, you’ll fall right into a deep uninterrupted sleep.
While soothing balms and bath soaks are suited to everyone, face oils are generally more daunting due to different skin types. Whether you struggle with acne or have super sensitive skin, face oils are one thing we should all be considerate about to cater to our individual needs. However, the ilapothecary Vitamin Rich A C D E Face Oil (a favourite of thee Demi Moore!) is a nutritious balancing treatment we’ve found is gentle enough to soothe most skin types.
It’s a remedial mix of Vitamins, nutrient rich oils including Arnica, Calendula, Borage and Rose Hip, combined with tuberose stem cells, Sandalwood and Blue Chamomile to balance, nourish and feed the skin. The highly calming therapeutic blend promotes youthful complexion, but most importantly is a life-saver for anyone with troubled skin and for when skin struggles during seasonal transitions.
ilapothecary’s industry-leading Beat The Blues set is a therapeutic alchemical range to balance and uplift moods. Formulated with transformative essential oils Clary Sage and Petitgrain, the products combine natural oils known to reduce stress, induce happiness endorphins, and balance.
The Beat The Blues Gift Set comes with three full-sized bottles of the Shower & Bath Oil 150ml, Pulse Point 10ml and Room Spray 50ml. Altogether, they aim to boost self-esteem, confidence, hope and mental health, whether at-home relaxing or on-the-go during a busy day.
These three products are only the tip of the ilapothecary iceberg but they are ideal for de-stressing, and universal for everyone.
