Dreaming of perfection with Voya



A good night’s sleep is essential to wellbeing and achieving inner balance, so to aid the relaxation of both body and mind, organic skincare expert Voya has introduced Mindful Dreams.

Aimed at calming the mind and reducing stress, the new treatment combines a series of wellness and massage techniques to ease strains and tensions in the body.

“We wanted to develop a treatment that helped to calm the mind, release stress and promote a good night’s sleep,” says Kira Walton, co-founder of Voya. “Sleep is essential for physical and emotional health and wellbeing, and our Mindful Dreams treatment offers complete tranquility and the easing away of stress and tension.”

The treatment features the brand’s therapeutic Tranquil range of products and includes an luxurious full body massage that utilises Balinese and Hawaiian techniques to exert rhythmic, powerful and flowing movements over the entire body. Calming and soothing, the ritual is said to help nurture inner mindfulness and serenity, contributing to restful and rejuvenating sleep patterns.

Elemis Life Elixirs



Incorporating a potent blend of modern aromatics, Life Elixirs from Elemis is a selection of premium bath and shower elixirs, perfumed rollerballs and therapeutic candles that aim to soothe and calm, or boost and motivate the mind, body and soul. Five different scents, created by the brand’s co-founder Noella Gabriel, feature a concentrated blend of base oils carefully combined with up to 19 powerful essential oils to maximise skin health and boost clients’ mood in an instant.

The bespoke blends include ‘Clarity’, which is formulated with uplifting bitter orange, refreshing cardamom and warming ginger that work together to sharpen the mind and focus concentration. ‘Embrace’ empowers the spirit with a life-enhancing combination of warming vetiver, sweet frankincense and potent rose pepper, while ‘Fortitude’ gives a boost of inner strength with ylang ylang, cedarwood and geranium to restore confidence.

‘Calm’ is a soothing blend of aromatics including rosewood and clary sage to calm, with lavandin to help clients unwind and relax. Finally, ‘Sleep’ blends patchouli, palmarosa and elemi to encourage relaxation.

Each of the combinations are brought to life in the new product lines which feature Bath and Shower Elixirs as well as Perfume Oil Roller Balls, which are formulated to absorb quickly and last throughout the day.

The five blends also star in the Life Elixirs range of Therapeutic Candles. Blended with natural extracts and essential oils, the elegant candles fill the room with a gorgeous scent, engaging the senses and affecting the mood. The range will be boosted later this year with the launch of three High-Oil Shower Creams.
