THERAPIE by Roques O’Neil
Michelle Roques O’Neil has been voted one of the top ten Aromatherapists in the world by Vogue and has over 25 years of aromatherapy experience – and she really knows how to rebalance, re-energise and calm our over-stretched minds, bodies and emotions.
They say the right people and things come along at just the right time and I was lucky enough to try two products from Michelle’s new Therapie range right in the middle of an unexpected move, with a heap of work and deadlines looming.
Both products, the Himalayan Detox Salts and Restore Aura Spray, are included in this deliciously “luxe”-yet-healing Therapie Discovery Kit £40. The first time I tried the Himalayan Detox Salts* (ingredients below) on a rainy Saturday night I slept like a baby after emerging from a beautifully scented bathroom and a long relaxing soak. In the same way that a brisk walk along windy cliffs can help blow away the cobwebs, these salts just seem to energetically release and melt away whatever preoccupations have made your head their home – whether it’s an undone to-do list 20 items long, a frantically busy day ahead or (fill in your own stress-triggers here). I found the Restore Aura Spray very “centering”, comforting and re-balancing and I’d definitely take it on a long flight, too.
Therapie’s Himalayan Detox Salts are a five-star treat. Save your money on a spa break and keep this glossy black jar near your fluffy bathroom towels. The spa chef may not be around to rustle up a plate of grilled shrimp and a mango salad but you’ll probably have the most blissful bath you’ve had in ages – and the best night’s sleep in months.
