Get your passport and your bikini,
you need a holiday, come see me,
I know you’re tired of the same old scenery, and I could change all that so easily....
What does aromatherapy have in common with Dizzee Rascal? It can whisk you away from a dull and dreary winter's day to somewhere you'd rather be!
Simply add a few drops of this, a couple of drops of that and voila! - in a matter of seconds you're lazing with a cocktail in hand on the golden sands of a tropical beach, wandering the mazes in the souks of the middle east or taking in the alpine air at your favourite ski resort.
We've thought of a few places we'd prefer to be on this wet and windy winter's day and created evocative oil blends to recreate the atmosphere. Simply add the recipes below to your diffuser or a tissue, close your eyes, breathe in the scent and escape....
