Spring Body Ritual at Home – from ila
We asked our friends at the beautiful holistic spa brand ila to give us some Spring inspiration to refresh our skin and give our whole body a treat. Read below for their Spring Body Ritual at home, and for 10% off the products recommended until May 5th, use AHSPRING at the checkout on www.ila-spa.com.
As our environment and planet once again starts to blossom and new lives are sprung, it’s important that we ourselves shed our winter trappings and rejuvenate for the beautiful longer days ahead. With this at the forefront of our minds, we have designed this spa ritual for you to specifically be able to carry out in the comforts of your own homes.
1x Bathroom – try to create a calming and relaxing environment
1x Inner Light and Joy Candle
1x Energising and Detoxifying Body Scrub
1x Vital Energy Body Cream
1x Vital Energy Aroma Roller
Step 1: Jasmin Flowers – Inner Light and Joy Candle
It is important that our space is right for our intentions so begin by lighting our beautiful Jasmin candle and let the aromas fill the space surrounding you.
Step 2: Body Scrub for Energising and Detoxifying
Just as you begin to unscrew the lid off our energising and detoxifying body scrub, you will be hit by the energy lifting smells of the alpine lavender, geranium and powerful lemongrass.
Apply one good sized teaspoon to your hand and apply to the body in small circular motions letting the Himalayan salts do the work for you, stimulating your circulation and begin to remove the any dry and congested areas of skin that have accumulated over the winter months.
Once immersed in your bath or shower, the scrub then acts as a form of bath salt continuing to penetrate and nourish the skin.
Top Tip: Take this moment to close your eyes and think about your state of mind, introduce happy thoughts whilst slowly and deeply inhaling and exhaling
Step 3: Body Cream for Vital Energy
At this point, your skin should be beginning to feel fresh and rejuvenating with your senses beginning to uplift.
Using the body cream for vital energy, a beautifully light combination of Argan Oil, Patchouli, and Geranium to name just a few, apply to damp skin to seal in all of our new found goodness, this can also be used with our Vital Energy Body Oil if you are looking or in need of ultimate hydration.
Step 4: Vital Energy Aroma Roller
Lastly but not least, the Vital Energy Aroma Roller provides the perfect finishing touch. When applied to one’s pulse points, a small but powerful mix of Moringa, Patchouli, Lemongrass, Rose Geranium and Juniper Berry provide a long lasting on the go perfume, ensuring that at all times we have that essential Spring in Our Step.
ila is used in both of our Utopia Spas to provide beautiful aromatic and holistic treatments. About ila in the words of their founder, Denise Leicester:
“What I hope is that those who use ila products at home start to feel a real sense of daily healing and fulfilment, and that those who try our spa treatments experience true transformation. Throughout the world million of pounds are spent on beauty and cosmetics, but I believe much of this is due to an inadequacy – a lack of deeper nourishment. ila really strives to provide this – to deliver soul sustenance, heart nurturing and a tender relaxation of the central nervous system. Never has the need been greater for this sort of gentle care.”
