With the London Olympic games well under way, we have been super-charging our health regime and getting more active in the spirit of all things sport. With extra running and increased pedaling, we have noticed a few stiff joints and muscles so have put a few of our favourites to the test to help combat fatigue and increase vitality. Below, is our guide to a Summer of sport…


Amala Detoxifying Bath Salts – Relax and unwind with the Amala Detoxifying Bath Salts, great after a long-run or busy day training. Amala Bath Salts contain powerful whole plant ingredients such as Myrtle and Sea Algae, for a revitalizing, and detoxifying aromatic bath. The natural detoxifying crystals dissolve in warm water and will leave skin feeling soft, and even toned, whilst gently awakening the senses and increase well-being. We like to use the salts if feeling a little fatigued or run-down to help draw out impurities and promote a restful nights sleep.

Weleda Massage Balm with Arnica – Relieve aches and pains with Weleda Massage Balm with Arnica. We like to use this natural massage oil  when we start to feel a little stiffness or muscle ache. It also makes an excellent massage oil for backache, sprains, bruising, and muscular pain, to bring warmth and relief of any pain.
