10th October marks the celebration of World Mental Health Day which aims to raise awareness, share information and support for those suffering from various mental health conditions.
The rise of complexities with mental health is now at an all-time high with 1 in 4 people experiencing a mental health problem each year in the UK. While the number remains high and often includes someone we love, one positive improvement which has resulted from this is a refreshing attitude towards openly discussing and accepting mental health, with more support available online and through workplace environments now more than ever before.
Depending on certain conditions for a lot of sufferers medication is not always an easy route to take, with side effects sometimes proving to have a severely adverse effect and interfering with day to day activities as a result. Over the years there has been an increasing amount of recognition between the connection of mental health treatments, aromatherapy, colour therapy and gemstone therapy techniques. Research into each of these practices has revealed they can, in fact, help with considerably reducing symptoms of Anxiety, Depression, Low Mood, PTSD, Seasonal Affective Disorder and Stress, due to the combination of alternative therapies being able to achieve multi-sensory results together.
Our Gemstone Sheet Mask Collection has been designed to focus purely on the mental health and wellbeing sector and incorporate a 4 - in - 1 therapy practice of aromatherapy, colour therapy, gemstone therapy and skin therapy extracts. Each sheet mask is vegan and focuses on a mind and skincare action, along with a range of benefits of plant extracts to relax and restore the mind within 20 minutes. Perfect for providing a helping hand on the days where life feels a little too overwhelming, for a noticeably calmer and happier mindset in the morning.
