The Joys Of Winter

Very few of us, least of all myself, enjoy the lower temperatures, and cold winds of winter, but there are nevertheless some compensations which can (almost) make up for the lack of the warmth of spring days to come.

A brisk walk, a warm cosy fire, and a long luxurious bath, are a few of my favourite winter indulgences.

I like to transform my bath by adding 3 drops of each of these calming essential oils: basil, mint and rosemary whilst the water is running, then relax for 20 minutes. Pure heaven!
