As cold weather rolls in, it’s time to hunker down and keep cozy. This year, escape the hordes of shoppers and embrace the winter season with the Danish art of hygge. Pronounced “hooga” and loosely translated to “cozy contentment,” this wintertime ritual celebrates self-care, togetherness and an appreciation for the simple things in life. Here’s our Eminence Organics guide to practicing hygge at home over the holidays.
HOW TO HYGGE WITH EMINENCE ORGANICS
1. BREW HERBAL TEA
Warm yourself from the inside out with a cup of your favorite herbal tea. We’re partial to chamomile for its soothing and relaxing properties - try this recipe that blends chamomile flowers and mint sprigs for the perfect homemade brew.
2. CRAFT A HYGGEKROG (A COZY NOOK)
Health Magazine recommends enhancing your hygge with “a self-care ritual that increases the R&R you get from your downtime.” At Eminence Organics, a favorite way to unwind is by indulging in one of our luxurious face masks. Pro tip: Before applying your favorite Eminence Organics mask, treat yourself to a warm towel compress to soften your skin and help release any dirt and debris clogging your pores.
4. SOAK IN A RELAXING BATH
Treat yourself to full body relaxation with a soothing soak. For an all-over skin conditioning treatment, add one to two capfuls of Eminence Organics Apricot Body Oil to your bath. This ultra-hydrating body oil will leave your skin feeling smooth and perfectly supple.
5. TAKE TIME TO APPRECIATE YOUR LOVED ONES & THE WORLD AROUND YOU
Hygge is all about taking time to enjoy the simple things in life, including showing appreciation for your loved ones and the world around you.
