Create a relaxing space at home with some of the best bath and body products on the market.

For a deep cleanse, especially if you are prone to blemishes or are a gym bunny, try Urban Veda's Purifying Body Wash.

Immerse yourself in the invigorating and refreshing scent of wild mint and eucalyptus. The wash is specially formulated to respect your skin’s natural moisture and pH level and is packed with antioxidant-rich, astringent ingredients. This botanical blend will leave your skin feeling soft, clean and cared for.

Yon-Ka is a creative brand that draws its inspiration from the botanical kingdom, its properties and benefits. With the Quintessence range, it has expanded its realm with an all-natural harmonious approach. Yon-Ka has developed a body range that combines Quintessence with other beautiful essential oils; to unveil properties that magically use their balancing action to restore wellness to the mind and body.

These are the products I have tried: Use Yon-Ka Phyto-Bain, (€39) in the bath and enjoy this iconic product with powerful and re-balancing essential oils of lavender, everlasting, petitgrain, rosemary and sage that drain and tone your skin.

Add some Epsom salts to the bath to help relax tense muscles, these are cheap and really ease tension. They won’t take away from the scent either as they are unscented. It’s an amazing wellness and energising treatment.

Yon-Ka Lait Hydratant (€35) is a fragrant body milk that combines vegetable glycerine, grape seed and sweet almond oil, leaving the skin hydrated and replenished, complete with ginseng extract for a re-energizing effect. In a word, it has everything you need, you will just love its feather light texture and effectiveness!

Yon-Ka Huile Detox (€39) combines detoxifying powers with the nourishing action of sunflower and sesame oils.

Yon-Ka Gommage Doux (€36) is a cream scrub that combines the exfoliating action of bamboo and apricot kernel powder with the moisturising and restructuring properties of mango butter, sesame oil and vegetable glycerine. It removes dead skin cells, leaving a light hydrating film on the skin. A gentle action for a perfect skin.

Facial massage has become massive and the benefits of it are apparent as it gets the blood flowing. One of the best mediums for this is oil and Urban Veda Radiance Facial Oil (€39.99) is fantastic.

Brightening Liquorice combines with anti-inflammatory organic turmeric and antioxidant-rich papaya to heal blemishes. Supporting elasticity and restoring suppleness, Radiance Facial Oil helps skin to retain its natural glow.

To help you relax, why not use a candle? I love the This Works Jasmine and Pettigrain candle (€33) which is never far from my bed. Immerse yourself in calm and serenity and let the therapeutic properties of this luxurious candle take over. It smells floral and calming and I love the ritual of burning a candle in the evening while I do my night-time skin routine.

For a restful night, try This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray (€22) which is enriched with lavender and vetiver and chamomile which help calm both mind and body, soothing you to sleep. Sleep has been proven to be effective in helping you sleep and to stay asleep.

This could indeed be a handy purchase for any anxious students ahead of their state exams, too.
