Last week, I was sick sick sick. I mean probably more cough and splattering ill but clearly i was dying. Being bed ridden and stuck in doors for a whole week with my other half coughing all over me, our flat become a germ fest. Sorry if your reading this over your lunch!

When my other half told me his mum said to clear the air, spritz lavender oil into the air for its anti-bacterial properties, I realised I had heard this somewhere before! Puressentiels is a French Pharmacy style brand who have recently taken the UK by storm. I even saw that they have huge advertisements on the tube walls now! Go hard or go home! I remembered that one of their most famed products is an air Purifying spray c/o (£19.99, 200ml NOW on offer too!). Something that I wouldn't dream of ever having to use, I quickly ran to my stash to find it! This air spray uses 41 essential oils that gets rid of bacteria, viruses, microscopic fungi and nasty odours. By using 100% natural ingredients this spray means its safe for children and adults, i would be included not to say animals as poor little Oscar was sneezing all over the place!

All you have to do is spray a few pumps into the corners of the room and leave the room for 30 minutes or so. I find the spray so relaxing, as it has calming essence of lavender, eucalyptus and verbena which is just a few to name and does indeed smell natural. I feel it just gives a room a boost and freshness that clears the air when you've been coughing in bed all day. The scent is very similar to  another hero product that I've been using at night time and if i need to relax in the day. Their Rest & Relax spray c/o (£16.99, 75ml NOW on offer) is heavenly. 

This spray is used specifically for resting and soothing the stresses away of everyday. If you do like to use aromatherapy oils to bring calm to the senses, I would highly recommend this spray, as it is a blend of calming aromas not just your usual lavender blend. It smells lighter with a citrus note to it. For me I have to admit, I've never used the spray how it is suggested to use. Puressentiels say to spray in all four corners of your room but for me thats way too much for my small bedroom so I prefer just a spritz above my pillows and bed. Bliss!

The final product will come as no surprise and its the only lip product you really need in your life Nuxe Reve de Miel (€3.95). Bought in Paris at the mecca of all skincare, this lip balm is truly amazing if you have chapped lips, dry skin and redness. If I am home and no one is around I like to pile on a layer of the stuff and let it all soak in. Beauty secret there! As for healing it is the only product that gets my lips in shape.

What are your go to products when your under the weather?

  1. I received a sample of this back at christmas but never thought to use it when I was ill, I too had the cough and spluttering everywhere so next time I'm poorly I will try this. Great review, hope you're back fighting fit now.

    1. Thank you lovely! I was the same, completely forgot I even had it! Luckily my beauty stash never leaves my brain hehe! Defo give it a go, I have even started using it daily as with my puppy its a handy product to use to stop him bringing in any nasties xx

  2. I am glad you have found something to help you relax, especially when you are not well, nothing worse than not being able to just settle and chill x

    1. The scent of this spray is less granny lavender (although i do love lavender) it has a more sophisticated scent, which is even more relaxing xx
