Become one with nature and improve your mental health

Become one with nature and improve your mental health

Berry & Bay on 12th May 2021

This week, we are getting real about mental health, in recognition of Mental Health Awareness week.

Mental health can be hard enough to navigate, let alone in the middle of a global pandemic. As concerns about mental health continue to grow given the current climate, we believe it is more important now than ever to openly discuss mental health and aim to remove the stigma.

As this year’s mental health theme is nature, it seems only fitting to discuss how immersing yourself into nature can truly benefit your mental health and physical wellbeing. Statistics from The Mental Health Foundation show that more than half of UK adults say that being close to nature improved their mental health.

At Berry & Bay, we believe everyone should be able to fill their homes with beautiful, luxurious items, without compromising their ethical values, that’s why all of our products are kind to the environment and the skin.

Nature is all around us, and therefore there are so many ways to connect with it, particularly with our premium collection of eco-friendly, cruelty free products. So let’s dive into the wonderful ways in which Berry & Bay can help you become one with nature and have a positive impact on your wellbeing.

Connect by acting consciously

Making ethical purchases will not only benefit the environment, but also your mental health. Taking care of nature can help you feel like you are doing something positive and worthwhile, as you make a conscious effort to contribute to preserving our planet.

Connect using your senses

Choose from a selection of ethically sourced items to become one with nature, through the sensation of touch.

Our Skyn Bakery products are the perfect way to surround yourself with the fruit of the earth, as each product is vegan and cruelty-free. From artisan soaps that look good enough to eat, to hydrating body butters specially designed for sensitive skin. Each skincare goodie is packaged plastic free - so you can treat yourself without compromising your values too.

Berry & Bay’s luxury hammam towels are a treat for the mind, body and planet. Not only are they beautifully made with 100% ethically sourced Turkish cotton, they are Oeko-Tex certified, which means the cotton used was grown without the use of toxic pesticides or fertilisers.

Using organic cotton is better for the land it is farmed on, and for the workers farming it, producing a more absorbent, breathable textile that is healthier for your skin. This luxury material ensures that our towels remain super soft over time, making them the ultimate gift that just keeps on giving.

Another way to surround yourself with the serenity of nature, is using your sense of smell to experience our beautiful 100% organic candles.

Carefully crafted with a blend of soy and coconut wax, and pure, vegan essential oils. Each individual candle is designed to burn with intention, and whisk you away on a positive, care-free wave of feel-good vibes. Let the unique alchemy of natural ingredients take you on a sensual and spiritual journey.

Get out into nature

Spending time in nature has been proven to help with mental health issues including anxiety and depression. Luckily, our versatile, premium hammam blankets are perfect for any occasion.

Just like our premium hammam towels, our blankets are beautifully produced using traditional Turkish methods and are made from 100% Turkish cotton. This natural material ensures that our towels remain super soft over time, providing not only comfort, but durability too. - the more you love them, the more they love you.

Why not venture out into the fresh air and enjoy the green surroundings in a forest or a park with your hammam blanket. The compact, lightweight nature allows for smaller folding, quicker drying and easier travelling. Perfect for picnics and dining and al fresco.

Wander to the beach on a warm summer’s day, submerge yourself in the cool splash of the sea and dry yourself off with your new summer companion. Our hammam blankets will provide immense comfort and durability, allowing you a moment of solitude in mother nature’s garden without worrying about its longevity.
