Here’s my staying at home wellbeing kit, even though at present I can’t stay at home, as I’m a doctor needed to help treat patients.
I’m not sure what it is with loo roll and us Brits at this time of crisis.
I decided not to buy at the supermarkets, instead I bought a box online.Introducing you to ‘who gives a crap’ toilet paper.
Admittedly they are more expensive than the rolls you would find at the supermarkets, but I feel they are good value for money, and for a great cause.
The toilet rolls and their wrappers are made from recycled paper, and 50% of the sale profits are donated to help build toilets for countries in need.They are 3 ply, super soft and look so pretty too.
The wrappers can be reused as gift wrap or for creativeDIY projects.Another thing flying off the shelves at the moment are alcohol hand gel rub. Here are two lovely smelling ones.
The Aesop Ressurection Rinse free hand wash has the required 60% alcohol content for being antibacterial and costs £7. It smells divine, with Mandarin Rind, Rosemary Leaf and Cedar Atlas.
Talking about hand gel rub, I thought I’d show you my Byredo Suede hand gel which smells amazing with notes of Bergamot, Lily of Valley, crisp amber and Pear. However, the alcohol content here is only 30%, so not anti-bacterial or anti-viral.Being a doctor, you can imagine how raw my hands are now from hand washing after seeing Covid 19 patients.
My go to hand cream is Aesop’s Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm. It smells amazing, with Mandarin Rind, Rosemary Leaf and Cedar Atlas.Scent is an essential component for wellbeing, as you can see, from what’s in my bathroom cabinet.There’s no denying that I’m a real Jo Malone fan.At this current climate of high anxiety, I say it is all the more important that we treat ourselves to something special.
I really love Jo Malone’s new Lavender range, with their pretty lilac caps.
The Lavender and Coriander cologne , an aromatic scent of English Lavender is bolstered by the striking note of coriander.
If you are having trouble sleeping, then you may want to consider the calming Lavender and Musk pillow mist. Talking about scent, the bathroom deserves some aromatherapy too, to help calm our nerves.I’ve been using Simple Goods’ toilet cleaning range which smells of Geranium, Lavender and Patchouli.
These products clean extremely well, but I’m unsure if they have ant-viral properties.Last but not least, keeping the air at home fresh and pure is important for that sense of wellbeing.This Brid air purifier from Atellani is great for hayfever sufferers.
Finally, hope you’ve enjoyed this post. Wishing you all a lovely evening and stay safe and well.
