What’s one of the highlights of being a fempreneur?
Making something positive happen in the world. It’s amazing to put time and energy into doing something which will really help people live a better life and to wake up in the morning knowing you have it in your power to make a difference.
Why is sleepcare so important to you?
I think a good night’s sleep is important to everyone. Sleep has been neglected for way too long but now the scientists have revealed it is the foundation stone of health and wellbeing. If we don’t sleep well, then every cell in our body is is negatively impacted and all our other health goals go out of the window as our stress, energy and hunger levels veer out of control. My own experience of poor sleep started when I had a job which involved lots of longhaul flights. Jet lag is no joke and that’s what prompted me to find natural ways that we can influence our sleep patterns and help ourselves get the rest our body needs.
What is your favourite product from the range?
One of our very first products was our LOVE After Dark Face Oil. It’s my must-have product as it weaves so easily in to my night-time skincare routine. It’s loaded with vitamin A rich Rosehip Seed Oil and Rose Absolut which together boost cell renewal and help skin repair while we are sleeping. And it smells amazingly comforting – like a lovely warm hug. Just the thing to help unwind and relax and bedtime and slip in to sleep mode.
What are your wellbeing ‘must haves’?
My dogs are top on the list. Not only is cuddling a pet proven to make you feel good they also never fail to make me smile every day and then get me up and outside walking, rain or shine. Other than that I’ll choose a good pillow (essential for a ache free night’s sleep) and a constant supply of fresh water. Dogs, sleep and water make my world go round.
What motivated you to create Kiss The Moon?
Having struggled with jetlag, I went on the search for a natural way to manage my sleep. I quickly realised that I wasn’t alone in seeking a better night’s rest – in fact one in three women suffer from insomnia at some point in our lives and even if we don’t, who wouldn’t say yes to a more restorative night’s rest? In terms of finding a solution to that, the penny dropped for me when I found out that the same ancient part of our brain controls also controls our sense of smell. That made me realise that aromatherapy held the answer. The right essential oils can balance the two hemispheres of our brain making us feel calmer, quieten the mind and able to drop off to sleep. Couple that with the fact that these same essential oils deliver powerful nutrients that support skin as it repairs itself overnight and you have the core idea at the heart of Kiss the Moon – night-time aromatherapy that helps you sleep and wake up feeling gorgeous.
