Look after yourself with Wellbeing Deals

Maybe the original spirit of the Fringe has got to me, but I’ve come over all peace, love and wellbeing this week – I feel a need to get my chakras in order, after a long and stressful few months.

It might have something to do with the new NEOM Organics Wellbeing Pod which launched this month. Its the Yorkshire-based brand’s first foray in the electronic market, and it’s a pretty simple, yet effective device. Fantastic gift  – to yourself, of course!

It humidifies the air around you, gives your home a gorgeous scent, and relaxes you, your kids, your partner, your mother-in-law! It delivers a powerful wellbeing boost, wherever you need it, and whenever you need it.

There’s times when you want the absolute perfect amount of scent in just minutes – when the kids get into bed I’ve been choosing the one hour setting so it fills their room with Scent to Sleep, and it then turns off on its own. It’s also brilliant for much larger areas – we have a big kitchen diner and it fills the whole space with scent in just a few minutes – or hallways when guest are arriving  – I’d choose Scent to Make you Happy then – it really packs a punch! Also, and I love this – it humidifies the air around you killing germs. Genius. – Nicola Elliott, Neom Founder

This Pod creates high frequency vibrations that break down the water and oil into tiny particles which are effectively diffused into your surroundings. It’s equipped with low energy LED lights and a night light,making the Pod perfect for both day and night.

Of course, if you really want to relax and find your inner you, then you need to get to a salon. There are quite a few interesting deals on 5pm Spa and Beauty site.

This deeply relaxing treatment combines a back, neck and shoulder aromatherapy massage, with a short reiki and crystal healing treatment.
Now here’s one I think I’d love to try – but it’s also a little bit terrifying. The deal is with Glasgow Reflexology and Holistic Therapies in About Hair and Beauty in Glasgow’s West End. The treatment is  Emotional Freedom Technique – EFT – is also known as ‘tapping’ and works by shifting emotional energy that has been stuck in our body.
