I have recently upped my yoga practice and can proudly say, I manage to squeeze in a yoga session at least 4 times a week these days. Unfortunately, more often than not it results in some kind of sore muscles, mostly in my legs and shoulders. I've always reached for the trusted Deep Heat but to be honest, I hate going to sleep smelling of it - not the most attractive smell in the world, let me tell you! I found the Neals Yard Ginger & Juniper Warming Oil at this year's Irish Beauty Show and have used it regularly ever since.
It contains a mix of essential oils of ginger, juniper, rosemary and sage for healthy circulation, plus muscle relaxing lavender, in a base of skin softening and conditioning sunflower, almond and wheatgerm oils. The ingredients are 100% organic.
It feels absolutely lovely on the skin and the smell is just out of this world - I wish you could smell it through the laptop. It smells warming and soothing... and just heavenly. I love applying it into my shoulders and legs at night, it not only relaxes my tight muscles, but also leaves my skin feeling softened and hydrated.
Neals Yard Ginger & Juniper Warming Oil €14.95 from the Natural Skincare Emporium (also available in Harvey Nichols / Space NK)
