Scent, Style, & Self-Care

Scent, Style, & Self-Care

The concept of self-care isn’t new to the women of modern day. Between balancing career and life commitments with the never-ending to do list - we understand now, more than ever, how important it is to set aside the time for yourself. Without self-care time, we wouldn’t have the rest and recharge we need to take on the next day, and the next. But besides trying to keep your non-negotiables consistent, is there more you can do to enhance your bath rituals, exercise schedule or morning routine? Self-care doesn’t have to take the form of an hour-long spa session with your favourite book. It also doesn’t mean squeezing in a yoga class before the workday starts. Perhaps it can take another form that doesn’t need much time at all. -- There is a gentle connection of ‘caring for the self, with style, and with scent. With style; it’s not just how you look in what you wear. It’s the act of putting on a garment made with high quality fabrics that truly feels good to wear. Whether it’s a buttery silk, a fine knit or a comfortable cotton, you may not be aware at first, but as you move from place to place throughout the day, you’ll be able to notice and appreciate how it feels against your skin. A well-made garment not only considers the fabric, but of the fit. The way it fits your body is another element of design that helps you look and feel the most like yourself. Investing in your style is a way you show appreciation for yourself, every day. With scent; it’s no secret the benefits of aromatherapy have on your mood and energy. Mindful moments don’t need to be done in isolation; they can be incorporated seamlessly into your day. Surrounding yourself with essential oils from a diffuser is a simple way to uplift your mood whilst you’re doing a routine activity – like working, reading or cooking. You can even being them with you on the go - in the form of an essential oil roll-on - so you can grant yourself a mindful moment of calm in between a busy and packed schedule. You may find the few slow seconds are all you need to uplift your mood for the rest of the afternoon. As long as you’re making time for yourself, that may be all you need. ‘Self-care’ may sound synonymous with spa day and other grand gestures, but it's the small moments you can catch in between the day; the moments where you can slow down your thoughts and appreciate your time, that really count towards caring for yourself. Whether it’s choosing to wear your favourite Ricepaper outfit, or carrying an essential oil roll-in from Ena in your work bag, creating a beautiful lifestyle for yourself is in and of itself, a form of self-care.
