I love Puressentiel products.
This family company with a background in herbalism and naturopathy have collaborated with doctors, pharmacists, scientific researchers and aromatherapy specialists to develop the Puressentiel range.
They sent me their Muscles and Joints Pure Heat Roller and Pure Heat Gel to try and I have to say that they do tick all the boxes.
Recommended for athletes and those suffering from muscle and joint pain, these products are the natural way to help relieve pain or strain. They each contain 14 essential botanical oils with anti inflammatory, anti swelling, analgesic properties. These include chamomile, cloves, eucalyptus, cajuput, wintergreen, juniper, marjoram, peppermint, lavender, limonene, nutmeg, niaouli, Scots pine and rosemary. What a glorious combination!
They are quite strongly scented due to the eucalyptus and menthol, a pleasant smell which helps make you feel relaxed. You only need to use a little of the product which feels cool and tingly on first contact with the skin and becomes warmer so you know it is going to be beneficial!
The heat gel and roller don't leave stains and are non-greasy and non-sticky so making them ideal to use anytime, anywhere.

Pukka’s Fresh Start Organic Tea
Uplifting and caffeine-free to boot, this tea is a lovely blend of organic lemon, lemongrass and warming spices. How better to start the day than with this energising, healthy herbal brew?
Pukka Herbs, the UK’s largest organic tea company, has launched Fresh Start. Blended by expert Master Herbsmith and practising herbalist Sebastian Pole, its sustainably sourced organic herbs, zesty organic lemon and warming aromatic fennel seeds, gently awaken your body and mind at the start of a new day. Stimulating yet soothing, this tea helps strengthen the digestive system to support optimum metabolism and, like all Pukka’s herbal blends, it is made with 100% organic and ethically sourced ingredients.
Pukka plastic-free tea bags come in their own recyclable envelopes to retain the essential oils in the organic herbs... and here's the clever bit, each bag has two chambers. This allows the herbs to flow and release the full potency in your cup. Pour boiling water directly on the bag and leave to steep for as long as it takes to make the perfect brew for you.
Nature’s finest ingredients to help you start your day in the best possible way:
