A magical 2013

As the festive season swings into all its magical glory, we’re left reflecting on another wonderful year here at ila HQ.

Thank you for all your incredible support throughout 2013 – it’s been a year to remember and I feel truly blessed as I recall the people I’ve met, the new spas we’ve been welcomed into, and the lovely recognitions and awards we’ve been honoured with.

I’m particularly proud of ila being named “Best Natural Product Line” by Asia Spa Awards, “Most Effective Natural Product Range” in the Spa Traveller Awards 2013, and “SENSES Best Organic SPA Product 2013”. Not forgetting the Tatler Beauty Award and Harpers Hot 100 for our Body Oil for Vital Energy and Bath Oil for Glowing Radiance  – none of which would have been possible without our inspirational team of indigenous farmers, tribes and producers worldwide, as well as our fabulous circle of therapists, support staff and clients – I thank you all.

Other highlights this year include partnerships with John Lewis and Net-a-Porter, as well as a significant number of new product launches: Body Cream for Vital Energy; Face Scrub for Glowing Radiance; Little Treat Bags, Teeny Taster Bags, sample sachets and, most recently, our Essence of Joy home fragrance range – a vibrant jasmine-based explosion of happiness that is wafting around me as I type!

The Little Treat bags have been such a hit that we will soon be launching Little Kundalini Treats – watch this space! Next year will also bring the launch of our exciting new ‘über’ range, focusing on cellular rejuvenation … I can’t wait to share news of it with you in the New Year.

In the meantime, I wish you and your loved ones a happy and connected festive period and a healthy, prosperous 2014. The festive period can be as stressful as it is magical so be sure to take a little bit of time for yourself during these crazy few weeks and I’ll see you the other side!

Love and blessings,
