How are you feeling this week?

Today's article is for you if the answer is - "MY ENERGY IS DEPLETED!"

Stress can be one of the big contributors to depleted energy.

We often describe the way stressful events leave us feeling as “I feel SO drained!”

At times like this I have found the best spa rituals that act as a remedy for feeling emotionally drained focus on clearing your mind and replenishing energy rather than simply focusing on relaxation.

The essential oils I recommend in the products to base your spa ritual on help release feelings of overwhelm. They create mental space by releasing pent up tension and clearing the mind, making them very effective at restoring energy.

The action of these oils absorbing into your skin during a process of a relaxing spa ritual can have a powerful effect. Even just one hour spent on a “Restorative” based home spa ritual can make you feel like you have recharged your batteries.

And the great thing is, renewed energy and mental clarity helps break the cycle of overwhelm. You’ll see things more clearly from a place of restored energy!
Below, I share with you - some of my FAVOURITE products and ingredients to include in rituals for restoring energy.

Energy Restoring Ingredients


Bergamot is a key ingredient in our Deep Conditioner, one of my favourite products!

Originating from Italy, and commonly used in perfumery for its fresh scent, the floral and citrus note of the fruit have both restorative and calming benefits. Encourages the release of pent-up feelings to help us relax, shift stagnant energy, and let go.

Lemon Myrtle

Lemon Myrtle is a key ingredient in our very popular Body Scrub, Body Wash and Body Lotion!

This intensely refreshing essential oil is sourced fresh from the farm in regional NSW, Australia. We love the fresh, clean scent of Australian Lemon Myrtle! It also helps with concentration and clearing the mind of stress. Lemon Myrtle is balancing to the emotions to both calm and lift the spirits.


Eucalyptus is found in our Muscle Relax Bath Soak!

This iconic Australian native tree has over 700 species. iKOU often blends multiple varieties of eucalyptus to layer the unique characteristics of scent and wellness benefits. Our favourites include lemon scented eucalyptus, lemon ironbark and peppermint eucalyptus all which open the breathing, cleanse the air and renew the mind.
