“A great day starts with a good night’s sleep” says Neom Organics CEO, Nicola Elliott
With a true passion for women’s wellbeing, Nicola Elliott set up Neom Organics London - a wellbeing fragrance brand dedicated to creating products that are 100% natural with true wellbeing benefits: to relieve stress, aid sleep, boost your energy, calm & relax or lift your mood.
We took some time out with Nicola to find out what relaxes her and why sleep is so important to her.
You are a successful businesswoman with a demanding job, how do you achieve a moment’s calm?
I make time for myself every day, because if I don’t I can’t be firing on all cylinders for my family and colleagues. I love to run; it clears my head and becomes my time, where I can’t be reached. I feel more energised with a focused mind when I’ve been running.
What does sleep mean to you?
Nothing effects how you feel as much of sleep or lack of it. And I absolutely believe that a great day starts 8 hours before with a good nights sleep!
After a busy day at the office, how do you unwind before bedtime?
At night, I always try to take a calming bath with the Tranquillity Bath Oil, to bring down my stress levels. I read for 20 minutes with the Tranquillity candle burning next to me and then drift off into a nice sleep! Taking time out, and looking after yourself is definitely not a luxury, it’s a necessity.
What are you reading at the moment?
I am actually reading ‘The Little Book of Hygge’ at the moment, it’s a great bedtime read.
Neom shares Pukka Herbs love for organic – what does organic mean to you?
When we started out, most organic products were sold in a brown paper bag; I wanted to create something that was a pleasure to use as well as providing wellbeing benefits without all of the unnatural additions that cancel out such wonderful pure essential oils.
What is your favourite herb and why?
I love Basil, we use it in several of our formulas. It can be used as a facial steam to banish a headache, has antibiotic properties, can help balance our blood sugar levels, and can help with stress/relaxation.
