How to Feel at Home in a New Place

Moving home is hands down one of the most exciting and stressful things a person can do, we have a beautiful blank canvas which is all ours to make a forever home. Cue the stress...what if the colours are all wrong? Will the sofa fit? The list goes on... Having creature comforts from home will go a long way to feeling more settled in your forever home. We caught up with our Milton Keynes Boutique Manager, Amy to get her recommendations on making your new place feel like home.

Hello! My Name is Amy , I am the Manager for our Milton Keynes Boutique I have recently celebrated my 10 years with the company. I am a qualified hairdresser and Beauty therapist with a wealth of Skincare knowledge.

Having moved home like many others during the start of the pandemic it was so important to me to have those scents filling the new space and making it feel like home from day one. The endless decisions such as having to choose which shade of white I wanted (who knew there was so many to choose from?) were made less stressful by being able to unwind during the evening, allowing for a good night’s sleep and therefore making the next day’s chaos so much easier.

Below are some of my new home must-haves:

Uplifting Home Range

A warm and enveloping scent will create a welcoming atmosphere, available in a candle, diffuser and home spray with simple and sleek packaging, you can really make this a feature in any room.

This range contains a blend of essential oils including Immortelle, which is also featured in our award winning skincare for its amazing anti-ageing properties. Not only this, the Immortelle flower is incredibly versatile which can aid to reduce anxiety and everyday tensions, making it a great addition to any new home.

Relaxing Pillow Mist

This is one of my must haves whether I am home or away, sleep does not come easy to me especially whilst in a different bed and surrounded by all these different “house” noises. The pillow mist is familiar and comforting so I am able to drift off to sleep.

It creates a calm and tranquil atmosphere - simply spray on your bedding up to 15 minutes before going to sleep to delicately scent the air. Allow the aroma to envelop you in to a peaceful night’s rest.

Shea Verbena Hands & Body Liquid Soap

Nourishing Shea butter combined with Energising Verbena (Takes me back to childhood eating lemon sherbets) make the perfect combination for any home, you just have to choose if you want to share it or keep it hidden just for you.

Ideal for any sink area including your fancy guest bathroom, just add water to one pump of liquid and watch a beautiful rich lather form, Shea butter ideal for the whole family even the most sensitive skins leaves the skin clean, nourished and protected with Verbena leaving a subtle scent on the skin.

Lavender Foaming Bath

Lavender is one of those scents that’s always familiar to you, we all have that family member who swore by it, who was always making some kind of concoction which was going to heal all that’s ails you. Of course like most wise women they were right.

This fan favourite is a must have for every bathroom, 2-3 spoons full of this foam bath into running hot water creates a full sensorial experience with lavender scenting the air and soothing away the day with every breath.

Almond Shower Oil

You will never forget the first time you use Almond Shower oil, mine was my first day in Boutique just over 10 years ago I had/have never felt or smelt anything like it.

The transformation from oil to a milky lather was a pleasant surprise as we all know oil and water do not mix, WRONG in this product they do! This multi award winning shower oil is easy to use just add some water lather and massage in, will leave the skin subtlety scented and nourished.
