It’s here! The season of giving ! Christmas ,during this time it’s important to also give to yourself! Self care is a priority during winter and especially during times of heightened stress such as the holiday period.
The days move into darkness earlier now the clocks have gone back and we feel the call to hibernate. Cosy nights and warm open fires greet November with its misty frosty mornings and the taste of winter in the air. Before winter really sets in we let off the fireworks...
If you are as keen on the natural world as I am then I am sure you have spent a lot of time during the previous months in the garden? Gardening along with home making can take its toll on your hands, so whilst carving out your pumpkin this Halloween let’s consider our wellbeing!
Autumn leaves swirling around the country lanes and pavements of our streets, one thing is for sure we realize that as the trees change the colour of their leaves, and shed their coats, it’s a sure reminder that cosy nights in take over from summer barbeques and garden parties!
Have you noticed that the roses are now producing rose hips? Each year I collect mine from the Allumi garden and make my own rosehip syrup, it’s full of vitamin C to ward off illness and support us in stressful situations, Also a great boost for the skin.
