As we emerge from a long, cold winter, it’s finally time to let in the light, to reconnect with ourselves and the nature that surrounds us. Spring is a time of renewal, transformation and fresh starts, so it’s the perfect opportunity to take a more conscious approach to our self-care. For us, looking after ourselves is no good if we’re not looking after nature too – so this is a self-care blog with a difference. Think of it as one for you, one for nature, and say hello to spring with these six acts of kindness.
Do Some Spring Cleaning
Tidy space, tidy mind. Make time for a mindful spring clean and this fresh start will feel even fresher. Stow away your winter wardrobe, re-organise your refill jars, and get around to dusting that shelf you can never reach – you’ll feel better for it, we promise. Made with 100% natural fragrance, powerful essential oils and none of the nasties, our household products
clean your home without dirtying the planet.
Write In Your Journal
Clear those mental cobwebs. Write down your reflections and set intentions for sunnier days ahead. Journalling is an amazing way to slow down, find inner calm and take stock as the seasons shift. Not sure where to start? Look up some simple prompts to begin your journaling journey.
Prepare Your Garden
As we set our own intentions for the new season, so too can we help nature in its own unique way. Early spring is the perfect time to prepare your garden for the splendours of summer. From pruning trees and cutting back winter shrubs, to clearing away dead leaves and tidying flower beds, a little work now will reap great rewards. Once the frosts are gone, you can even start planting cool soil-loving vegetables like potatoes, artichokes and peas.
Nourish Your Skin
Say goodbye to dry winter skin and let that springtime glow in. Ready to feel all brand new? Exfoliate from head to toe, then moisturise, moisturise, moisturise. Our soothing, smoothing, naturally-derived hand and body lotions are here to help you emerge from the depths of winter with skin so soft, supple and hydrated, it’s like nothing ever happened.
Organise A Beach Clean
Grab your pals, lift your litter pickers, and do your bit to give nature a spring clean of its own. It might feel like a drop in the ocean, but continued, collective effort can have a huge impact. Consider starting a facebook group and make it a regular date in the diary.
Help Nesting Birds
With a few simple steps, anyone can transform their garden into a bird’s paradise, and with natural habitats in decline, this is an amazing way to help our feathery friends. Set out a variety of nest boxes to suit the types of birds that already come to visit, put in a birdbath so they can drink and bathe, then leave helpful materials dotted around, think twigs, dried leaves, old feathers or even your dog’s hair!
