Like a Natural Woman
DAY three of my little Christmas wish list (hint hint lovely hubby) and we've entered the wonderful world of natural beauty products.
I've recently rediscovered the chemical free goodness that is Weleda. I'm currently applying their award winning pregnancy massage oil to my ever stretching pregnant belly on a daily basis and am planning on using their lovely, sunny, baby range on the baby-in-waiting.
But it's the Massage Balm with Arnica that I would thoroughly recommend to all you sporty types (£9.95 for 100ml bottle or £5.95 for the handy, slip in your gym bag sized, 50ml bottle). Arnica is a natural anti-inflammatory - great for bruises and bringing down joint swelling but also valued for it's natural ability to release tight, knotty muscles. So if you are training for a marathon or recovering from an injury, this slippery balm is definitely a girl's best friend.
And believe me, I'll be keeping some handy to cope with the inevitable muscle soreness when I hit the training again at some point in the new year!
