How to Relieve Stress with Neom

How to Relieve Stress with Neom

When it comes to tackling stress, the world of organic and natural beauty is becoming increasingly popular due to its gentle yet powerful properties. Natural plant formulations and essential oils are believed to help relieve anxiety and tension. No one understand this more than Nicola Elliott, founder of natural brand Neom Organics. She believes that organic and natural beauty can make a real difference to our overall health and well-being, and that it can help us to feel happier and more grounded in our lives.

Why is targeting stress so important?

Neom has conducted a National Stress Audit across the UK to really get to the heart of what makes us so stressed out. After asking over 1,000 women about their individual stress levels, they were astonished to discover that 90% said they felt stressed in their daily lives. What is even more worrying is that the World Health Organisation has estimated that by 2020, stress-related illnesses will make up the top 4 diseases.

Luckily, Neom founder Nicola Elliott is on hand to share her findings and top tips on what we can do to reduce our stress levels, and find a little extra balance in our lives. Reducing your stress levels will not only help you feel more relaxed and happier, but will also increase your overall health and well-being.


De-Stress with the Real Luxury Collection

The Neom Organics Real Luxury range has been designed to target stress levels and help you feel calmer and more balanced. A unique blend of essential oils makes the scent absolutely beautiful, and we can honestly say that a capful of the Real Luxury Bath Foam in our baths makes us feel a lot less stressed! The collection is infused with Jasmine to help inspire positivity, Rosewood, which helps to balance the mind and ground you, and Lavender, which has been used for centuries to relax your mood and help you drift off to sleep.

Stress Relieving Tips with Neom

We caught up with Nicola Elliott to discuss the serious issues surrounding stress and what it can do to our skin and well-being.

Question: Have you noticed a significant rise in stress in people since you started NEOM Organics?

I think women definitely open up more about stress now. It’s something that we need to sit up and take notice of and I think that’s finally started to happen.  We actually commissioned an independent National Lifestyle Stress Audit last year and it confirmed that a massive 9 out of 10 women in the UK are stressed. If that’s not the seal of approval we all need to make time to de-stress every day then I don’t know what is.

Question: What do you believe causes this stress?

We’re just all so busy! We’re living such fast-paced lives, working hard to juggle so many different things without taking time for ourselves. The Neom Lifestyle Stress Audit revealed that 60% of women stated ‘more time’ as being the one thing that would help reduce their stress levels. Women need to make this time and understand that it’s not a luxury, but a necessity.

Question: What effects can stress have on our minds and bodies?

Stress affects each one of us differently and can affect so many aspects of our lives. What we have found at Neom is the knock on effect it can have on our mood, energy levels and sleep. That’s why it’s so important to really focus on our own wellbeing. After all, we need to be healthy and happy ourselves to be able to take care of others.

Question: What one thing do you like to do to combat stress?

What works for me is a combination of things. A 360 approach. Exercise, clean-eating, mindfulness, taking time for myself… The use of the Neom essential oil blends in our Tranquility Bath & Shower Oil combined with the 7/11 breathing technique can help so much!

Question: What does the NEOM “De-Stress” Collection contain to help calm and relax?

Our signature Scent to De-Stress blend contains 24 of the purest possible essential oils, including lavender, jasmine and Brazilian rosewood. It’s been expertly blended to help reduce stress levels and help manage the daily stresses of life!

Question: If you had to give one tip to live a more balanced life, what would it be?

Take the decision to see ‘taking time’ as a necessity, not just a luxury. Flipping that mind set is the first step.



Skincare Specialist

I am a big believer in the idea that beautiful Make Up begins with a superb skincare regime. I like to enhance my natural beauty rather than cover up and I am always on the lookout for great products which really work. When I am not writing about all things beauty, I like to do Yoga and I make an amazing brownie. It is all about balance!
