Long Description

Relaxation is something most of us reserve for a holiday, the weekend or a sweet moment before going to sleep in the evening. However, a sense of peace and relaxation is a state which each individual should carry in their day to day lives, where the stress to relax ratio is in favour of the latter. The fast paced and chronically stressed lifestyles which society has become accustomed to has not allowed for this, and the ratio has done a complete 180, where stress is an “everyday”, and relaxation is a “not so often but I wish” reality. We created this blend to rectify this imbalance and in doing so hope that each time you take a drop you remember that you deserve to be peaceful.
