Relaxing With Olverum Bath Oil

I’ve been relaxing with Olverum bath oil this week. Olverum Bath Oil is an effective way to relieve stress naturally and achieve a great night’s sleep. Obviously, I jumped at the chance to review a sample of this unique, highly concentrated, therapeutic bath oil.

Travel set- Olverum Bath Oils

Olverum contains 10 pure essential oils, carefully blended to work synergistically, giving you a relaxing bath oil. Winner of Tatler Beauty awards 2018 ‘Best Bath Oil’, Olverum great for easing aching or sore muscles. It’s also a perfect soothing antidote for a cold or flu with a gorgeously aromatic unisex scent. As my long-term readers will know, I suffer from chronic pain & muscle spasms and anything natural that may help, I’ll happily give a try!

Described as ‘bath nirvana’ by The Sunday Times Style Magazine it seemed an opportunity not to be missed. Olverum survived by word of mouth for many years, a product known in the UK only to a small number of passionate devotees. Beautifully re-packaged, yet retaining the same loved formulation used for over eight decades, Olverum recently relaunched under new British ownership.

Having heard all the positive talk about Olverum I couldn’t wait to get the girls to bed and run myself a bath. The start of the Summer holidays has been pretty busy and I could definitely use some time relaxing in the bath. I ran a warm bath with 5ml of Olverum bath oil and the aroma instantly filled the room! It smells gorgeous and feels amazing on your skin. I relaxed for a full 15minutes, something I very rarely do. My skin flares up in the heat but the added oil seemed to really help and left my skin feeling soft and hydrated.

I’m looking forward to my next bath using Olverum bath oil, it really leaves you feeling relaxed and rested. If you are looking for something to help you relax or a treat to pamper yourself with I definitely recommend Olverum.

Mental Health Apps – MentalSnapp

I’ve been looking at mental health apps that can help me cope better on bad days. Mental Snapp is an app designed to help you manage your mental health using private video diaries. I know 2 people who find recording videos of themselves really helpful and love the sound of Mental health apps such as Mental Snapp.

Mental Health Apps

Mental health apps are a great way to manage and monitor your mental health. 1 in 4 of us will have a mental health episode at some point and it can be so confusing. Using mental health apps like Mental Snapp to actively manage our mental health can make it much easier. If like me you hate appointments and struggle to ask for help, apps like these can help us get things off our chest when we really need to.

Hannah Chamberlain, co founder of the app and originator of the idea, says; “I came up with the idea for Mental Snapp having told my own mental health story on film and helped other people tell theirs. I’ve been managing my own condition and making films on mental health for twenty years, and seen how telling your own story on film really makes a difference to people. Mental Snapp is a way to make the therapeutic benefits of journalling, rating mood and naming feelings accessible – the camera on your phone can be the therapist in your pocket.”

Mental Snapp

This video recording mental health app, Mental Snapp is available free to download from the App Store and Google Play. This helpful mental health app has been designed to be a space for you to tell your story and gain confidence. You can record short video diaries, rate your mood and name your feelings when using Mental Snapp. Your videos aren’t watched by anyone else so you don’t need to worry about being judged. It’s your version of events, and telling them helps you reflect and get to know yourself better.

Costs

A free app is always a good start and Mental Snapp is available for free. If however you need extra space to save your videos and want to access extra features, you can. The app costs £4.49 per month. The Mental Snapp app has been featured in the London Evening Standard. The idea is welcomed by the DWP too.

The Office for Disability Issues, DWP, says; “We welcome Mental Snapp as an innovative idea to help people manage their mental health. People living with mental health and other long term health conditions have barriers to overcome in living independently. The Government has set out a commitment to see one million more disabled people in work by 2027 and technology has an important part to play in helping us achieve this goal.  Mental Snapp is an exciting example of how technology can help promote methods of recovery that help people to live fulfilling lives.”

Mental Snapp can help you find things out about yourself and learn your moods easily. You simply record your video clip, rate your mood, tag a feeling and that is it! Nice and simple yet very effective. The app organises your video diary clips so they are easily searchable. This fantastic app also provides you with prompts and allows you to see patterns over time using the insights page.

The team at Mental Snapp believe you already have the skills you need to manage your mental health. Using the app and recording regular video clips can help you draw out those skills. It can feel a little odd recording yourself at first. Stick with it though and I promise you will see the benefits.
