With an award-winning range of certified organic and certified natural products, KORA Organics is built on the values of making a transformative difference to people’s skin, their confidence, and offering them a healthier alternative to other brands on the market.
We were lucky enough to chat to Miranda about what her sleep and wellness routine entails, as well as her love for aromatherapy.
1. Do you have a sleep routine? And if so, what is it and what products are involved?
After a busy day taking care of the kids, the house and working from home, I have an evening routine I like to follow to help wind down and ensure a good night's sleep.
Once I’ve put the boys to bed, I take some ‘me time’ with my nighttime skincare routine. I really value it, as it helps me unwind and relax. If I have time, I will treat myself to a relaxing bath. I have a little bath ritual I like to do where I dim the lights in my bathroom and light a few candles, burn Palo Santo to clear the space and play some calming music (I love Snatam Kaur).
I’ll then have a cup of chamomile or lemon balm tea and do a short meditation before I get in to bed. I mist my face and pillow with the KORA Organics Calming Lavender Mist that contains Lavender, Chamomile and Bergamot essential oils to soothe and relax my mind and apply the KORA Organics Noni Glow Sleeping Mask, which I keep on my bedside table. Sometimes I listen to music or a guided meditation and then put on an eye mask to assist with a deep sleep.
2. As a busy mum, with a successful career, how do you stay calm and balanced throughout the day?
When I’m feeling overwhelmed, I will take a moment to meditate or focus on my breathing. I find stepping out into my backyard, feeling the grass beneath my feet and taking some deep belly breaths really helps. Just taking 10-15 minutes to yourself throughout the day can really help make you feel more balanced and able to give more to those around you and everything you do.
I also like using Palo Santo to clear the energy in the space, and have diffusers around the home with essential oils, which I like to change up depending on what’s going on and what energies I’d like to promote. Aromatherapy has many therapeutic benefits and is a tool I use daily.
3. How do you use your diffuser at home? How does it make you feel?
I have several diffusers all around the home, I like to have one in most rooms, and love to switch up the essential oils I use depending on how I am feeling. My The Goodnight Co Ceramic Diffuser is such a great, chic accessory to any room. It blends in with the decor perfectly and not only scents my home but looks beautiful doing it.
4. What is your favourite Essential Oil Blend and why?
I love Essential Oils and creating blends, not just for my Diffuser but I also like to wear them as my daily fragrance. I like the scents of Rose Otto and Sandalwood, feels like a big warm hug. I love Peppermint as well, it’s so refreshing and energizing, alongside Lavender to use at night to help calm and relax the mind and body.
5. We know you are so knowledgeable on beauty – so we would love to know, what is your #1 beauty tip for our readers?
Consistency is key! Keep it clean and focus on achieving healthy, radiant skin. I believe that the health of our skin is connected to our mind and body – for example when we are stressed or tired or eating unhealthily it shows on our skin. I feel people naturally look their best when they feel their best, it radiates from within. That's why at KORA Organics we try to encourage our customers to look after and nurture their mind and body, as well as their skin for best results.
