It’s also easy to spread that de-stressing aroma right around the home with some Green Angel Precious Oils diffusers and candles. Our current favourite relaxing perfume is Exotic Neroli, which is distilled from orange blossom petals and is indulgent and sensual, helping to calm the mind and relax the body.
If it's a background scent that you enjoy 24/7, then this reed diffuser will deliver a lasting fragrance for up to three months and they have an eco-friendly refill (costs €18.00) once the original diffuser runs out.
Spring is also an important time to focus on an exfoliating routine, as clothing layers are cast off, often revealing flaky and overly dry skin, thanks to winter weather.
Gentle exfoliation once or twice a week will remove the dead skin cells which can cause blocked pores and spots. It also helps prevent ingrown hairs and prepares for even fake tanning. But, never over-exfoliate, as too much can damage the skin’s hydration barrier and may irritate.
The Green Angel Sunrise Magic Seaweed Body Smoother, €39.50, from Green Angel is a luxurious exfoliator which combines nutrient rich hand-harvested organic Irish seaweed with sea salt, enriched with botanical argan and grapeseed oils and pure organic grapefruit and lemon essential oils. As well as a zesty aromatic boost for tired bodies and weary minds, skin will be once again silky smooth and nourished with essential minerals, vitamins and Omega 3.
It's also an important time to combat the damage caused by harsh winter weather and overheated homes by indulging in some pampering April showers.

Their four hand-harvested organic seaweeds have amazing moisturising properties, so this luscious creation is soothing on the skin. It smells gorgeous thanks to organic essential oils and helps to leaves the body deliciously revitalised and rejuvenated.
