Soothe your throat with herbal cough drops
Our throats need a little more TLC than usual during winter months, and Ricola’s ‘SOOTHE & CLEAR’ cough drop range could do the trick. Founder Emil Richterich spent much of his time researching the properties of herbs and experimenting with his own mixtures, until he invented the company’s signature blend in 1940, made from 13 herbs: burnet, cowslip, elder, horehound, lady’s mantle, mallow, marshmallow plant, peppermint, plantain, sage, speedwell, thyme and yarrow. To this day, these same herbs are cultivated and harvested carefully in the Swiss Alps. Once dried, they’re blended into Ricola’s secret mixture and turned into soothing cough drops. Additional ingredients include natural menthol, lemon juice, echinacea and fairtrade honey to give your throat the extra care it needs. Learn more by visiting ricola.com/en-gb

Get fuller lashes with an innovative mascara
Dreaming of long, thick lashes? Aliver’s new mascara, formulated with hemp protein, argan oil, natural bee wax and acacia gum, works to support keratin creation, a process known to strengthen the lash from within. Emulsified inside each mascara tube are tiny fibres that inflate like tiny cushions. When you sweep the brush through your lashes, the fibres lock together to thicken and add volume without looking spidery or stringy. The product comes with the new, patented, full-bristle eyelash brush to help you define and lengthen your lashes with zero clump. Made in an FDA-certified facility, Aliver mascara is cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulphate-free, lactin-free, gluten-free and GMO-free.

Deal with your headache the natural way
Millions of people in the UK suffer from intense headaches, which could have an enduring impact on people’s lifestyles. Most patients rely on medicines such as ibuprofen to relieve the pain, but these often upset the stomach — which is why some neurologists suggest a more natural treatment. Riboflavin (vitamin B2) at a clinical dose could contribute to the reduction in the frequency and severity of headaches. Bespoke Biotics has formulated this ingredient in Migrasoothe, a powerful one-a-day capsule that supports headache relief. There are three versions available, the original and two enhanced ones: the Migrasoothe + Herb, which contains ginger and feverfew, and Migrasoothe Pro. Find out more at migrasoothe.co.uk and use offer code Migrasoothe2022 for 10 per cent off. Offer valid until 31 January 2023.
