Seascape Island Apothecary Uplift Awake Oil
Seascape – a really rather wonderful aromatherapy-powered bath, body and wellbeing line based in the Channel Islands – describe this as 'an alarm clock in a bottle'. Strictly, it's an alarm clock in a rollerball – but that niggling little point aside, we wouldn't disagree. If you've already noticed that the mornings are darker (we're early risers and notice these things at 6 a.m.!), you may feel it's all downhill daylight-wise till Christmas(ish).
Well, we think this makes waking up that little bit easier. (And we're not alone: it's been shortlisted for the Beauty Awards 2016, in the Best New Natural Product of the Year category.) Simply roll the oil onto palms to dispense the reviving, sense-refreshing blend of lavender, lime and Jersey eucalyptus (no, we didn't know there was such a thing, either). B-r-e-a-t-h-e deeply and inhale...
... And if you don't spring out of bed with a little more bounce, we'll be very surprised!
PS Also good for 4 p.m. slumps, we're finding!
