Updated: May 12

Hey there, welcome to Blissful Moments! This is the ultimate haven for all you super moms out there who are desperately seeking a moment of peace in the midst of the beautiful chaos called motherhood.




In this series, we're going to explore various self-care rituals and relaxation techniques that will help you unwind and find your own personal oasis. And guess what? We'll also be exploring the amazing rejuvenating effects of Dermagram products along the way.




So, picture this: you in your comfiest robe, the lights dimmed just right, and a world of pampering waiting for you. Sounds dreamy, doesn't it? Well, get ready to make it a reality as we embark on this incredible journey together. It's time to give yourself the love and care you truly deserve. Let's begin!



Episode 1: The Ultimate DIY Spa Experience



In our first episode of Blissful Moments, get ready to indulge in the world of DIY spa experiences, right in the cosy comfort of your own home. Let us paint a picture: the soft flickering of candlelight casting a warm glow, the gentle notes of soothing music filling the air, and you sinking into a bath that rivals the most luxurious spa treatments. Ah, pure bliss!


To take your home spa to the next level, incorporate our Ultra Calming Mask into your pampering routine. This ultra-nourishing mask is packed with plant-based botanicals and hydrating ingredients that will drench your skin in lasting moisture. Simply apply a generous layer to clean skin before drawing yourself a warm bath for the ultimate masking experience. Step this up by mixing 2-3 drops of our best-selling Soothing Oil (now back-in-stock!) directly with the mask for an ultra-nourishing effect. 




As the bath fills, light a few scented candles and put on some calming music to set the mood. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered here, too! Check out our Self-Care Anthems on Spotify. . Sprinkle in your favourite bath salts, oils or melts to create an aromatic oasis. Pour yourself a cup of herbal tea to sip as you soak your cares away.


Once the tub is ready, ease yourself into the warm water and allow the heat to gently open your pores. Take some deep breaths and immerse yourself fully for 10-15 minutes, feeling the overnight mask's hydrating ingredients penetrating your skin's surface.


When you're ready, gently towel off without rinsing the mask. Its concentrated formula is designed to be absorbed over the next 8 hours while you sleep. Simply apply your night time serums or moisturisers over the top of the mask, we suggest our Ultra Calming Serum, then slip between some soft, fresh sheets. Wake up with skin that feels plump, dewy and rejuvenated - the perfect start to Mother's Day. 



DIY Bath Recipes:


Now, let's dive into some amazing DIY bath recipes that will elevate your self-care experience:

  1. Luxurious Lavender Bath: Transform your bathwater into a haven of relaxation by adding a few drops of lavender essential oil. Not only will the soothing aroma envelop your senses, but lavender also has calming properties that help to ease both the body and mind. Get ready to unwind!

  2. Oatmeal Honey Soak: Treat your skin to a nourishing and moisturising soak with this simple yet effective recipe. Just mix oats and honey into your bathwater and let the magic happen. The oats will help to soothe and soften your skin, while the honey works its wonders, leaving you feeling pampered from head to toe.

  3. Citrus Burst Bath: Add a few slices of fresh citrus fruits like lemons, oranges, or grapefruits to your bathwater. Not only will the citrusy aroma uplift your spirits, but the natural acidity of the fruits can also help to brighten and revitalise your skin.

  4. Milk and Honey Bath: Indulge in a luxurious bath fit for a queen by adding a cup of whole milk and a generous drizzle of honey to your bathwater. The milk acts as a gentle exfoliant, while the honey locks in moisture, leaving your skin feeling silky smooth and nourished.

  5. Green Tea Detox Bath: Brew a strong cup of green tea and pour it into your bathwater. Green tea is rich in antioxidants and can help detoxify your skin, leaving it feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. You can even place a few chilled green tea bags over your eyes for a soothing and de-puffing effect.

  6. Epsom Salt Soak: Add a cup or two of Epsom salt to your bathwater to create a relaxing and muscle-soothing soak. Epsom salt contains magnesium and sulphate, which can help alleviate muscle soreness and promote overall relaxation. You can also add a few drops of your favourite essential oil for an extra touch of aromatherapy

  • Set the mood by dimming the lights or using candles to create a soft, soothing ambiance.

Episode 2: Serenity in a Bottle: Essential Oil Recommendations


Welcome back to Episode two of Blissful Moments, where we’ll be exploring essential oils and their incredible power, and how to pair them with the Ultra Calming Cleanser and Ultra Calming Cream to promote relaxation and overall well-being. 

Some of our favourites

  1. Lavender: Ah, lavender, the timeless classic. This beloved essential oil is renowned for its calming properties. Just a few drops of lavender oil can help alleviate stress, promote relaxation, and create an atmosphere of tranquillity. Add it to your bath, mix it with a carrier oil for a soothing massage, or use it in a diffuser to fill your space with its heavenly aroma.

  2. Chamomile: Picture yourself reclining in a cosy chair, a cup of chamomile tea in hand. Now, imagine that same soothing experience in the form of essential oil. Chamomile essential oil, with its gentle, floral scent, is perfect for unwinding after a long day. Its calming properties can help to ease tension, promote a sense of serenity, and prepare you for a restful night's sleep.

  3. Ylang Ylang: If you're seeking a luxurious and exotic aroma, ylang-ylang essential oil is an excellent choice. Derived from the flowers of the Cananga tree, this oil has a rich, floral scent that is both uplifting and relaxing. It can help balance emotions, enhance mood, and create a peaceful atmosphere during your self-care rituals.

  4. Peppermint: Need a pick-me-up? Peppermint essential oil is here to invigorate your senses and provide a refreshing burst of energy. Its minty aroma is known to promote mental clarity, boost focus, and soothe headaches. Add a few drops to your diffuser or dilute it in a carrier oil for a revitalising massage.

Now that you have these essential oil recommendations, it's time to incorporate them into your self-care routine, and it’s easier than you might think!  Here are some simple tips:

  1. Morning Boost: kickstart your day by adding a few drops of invigorating essential oils like lemon, grapefruit, or peppermint to your shower gel or body wash. The uplifting scents will energise your senses and set a positive tone for the day ahead.

  2. Aromatherapy Diffusion: Invest in an essential oil diffuser and create your own personal sanctuary at home or in your workspace. Choose oils like lavender or eucalyptus to promote relaxation and focus. Experiment with different blends and find what works best for you.

  3. DIY Skincare Boost: Enhance the benefits of your skincare routine by adding essential oils to your favourite cleansers or moisturisers. For instance, mix a drop or two of tea tree oil into your Ultra Calming Cleanser to help combat blemishes, or add a drop of frankincense oil to your Ultra Calming Cream for its rejuvenating properties.

  4. DIY Facial Mist: Create a refreshing facial mist by combining distilled water with a few drops of your favourite essential oil. Transfer the mixture to a spray bottle and spritz it onto your face to revitalise your skin and uplift your mood throughout the day.

  5. Calming Bedtime Ritual: Place a few drops of your favourite essential oil  on a tissue or a cotton ball and tuck it under your pillow for a peaceful night's sleep.




Incorporating essential oils into your daily routine is a wonderful way to enhance your well-being and bring a sense of balance to your life. But, remember, essential oils are potent, so always follow the recommended guidelines for each oil and be mindful of any sensitivities or allergies. Start with a small amount and gradually increase as needed.

Embrace the power of these natural wonders and let them transform your everyday rituals into moments of pure bliss.

Episode 3: Journey to Inner Peace: A Basic Step-by-Step Guide To Meditation


On our last and final episode of our special Mother's Day series, we will be journeying into the depths of inner peace through a step-by-step guide to meditation. Discover the transformative power of this ancient practice as we explore various techniques to help you cultivate serenity and harmony within.


Meditation is a deeply personal practice, and there is no "right" or "wrong" way to do it. It's all about finding what brings you the most peace and tranquillity. And as you dive into the realm of meditation, allow Dermagram's Ultra Calming Serum and Ultra Calming Cleanser, a soothing and nourishing formulation, to enhance your experience and nurture your skin from within.



Step 1: Create a Sacred SpaceFind a quiet and comfortable space where you can retreat and dedicate time solely to your practice. Clear the area of any distractions and consider adding elements that promote relaxation, such as soft lighting, calming scents, or meaningful objects.


Step 2: Find a Comfortable PostureChoose a posture that allows you to be alert yet relaxed. This can be sitting cross-legged on a cushion, kneeling, or even lying down. The key is to find a position that supports your spine and allows you to remain comfortable for an extended period.


Step 3: Set Your IntentionBefore delving into the practice, take a moment to set your intention. Reflect on why you are embarking on this journey to inner peace and what you hope to gain from your meditation practice. This intention will serve as your guide throughout the session.


Step 4: Mindful Breathing Begins by focusing your attention on your breath. Close your eyes gently and bring your awareness to the sensation of the breath flowing in and out of your body. Observe the natural rhythm of your breath without attempting to control it. Whenever your mind wanders, gently guide your focus back to the breath.


Step 5: Body ScanShift your attention to your physical body. Start from the top of your head and slowly scan down to your toes, bringing awareness to each part of your body. Notice any areas of tension or discomfort and consciously release them, allowing your body to relax and let go.


Step 6: Visualisation Engage your imagination and visualise a peaceful and serene place. It could be a tranquil beach, a majestic mountain, or a serene garden. Create vivid mental images and immerse yourself in the tranquillity of this visualisation. Allow your senses to come alive as you experience the peace and beauty of this inner sanctuary.


Step 7: Loving-Kindness MeditationDirect your attention towards cultivating feelings of love, compassion, and kindness. Start by extending these sentiments towards yourself, silently repeating phrases such as "May I be happy, may I be healthy, may I be safe, may I live with ease." Then, expand these well-wishes to include loved ones, acquaintances, and all beings around the world.


Step 8: Embrace the Silence As you conclude your meditation practice, take a few moments to simply sit in silence. Embrace the stillness and allow yourself to integrate the peace you have cultivated during your meditation session. Gradually bring your awareness back to your surroundings, carrying this sense of inner peace with you into your day.


Throughout this journey to inner peace, remember that meditation is a personal practice. There is no right or wrong way to meditate, and it is essential to find techniques that resonate with you. Embrace this time for self-care and reflection, nurturing your well-being and connecting with the profound tranquillity that resides within.

Thank you for joining us on this special Mother's Day series. We hope this series was helpful for all the moms who were looking for some quick and easy self-care tips!
