Self-care with Carley from Evella Co

Self-care with Carley from Evella Co

“More now than ever, we live busy lives, and we (as women and mums) have a bad habit of not putting ourselves first. I feel a little self-love weekly (if not daily) is a must!”

Carley is the owner of Evella Co, a business selling luxury handcrafted bath and body products to soothe your mind, body and soul. 

Handmade in Sydney, Evella Co was created to share the magic of a day spa experience in the comfort and privacy of your own abode.

As lovers of all things self-care, it was lovely to chat with Carley and hear what keeps her grounded in our busy world.

 

 

Tell us a bit about yourself and how you got to be doing what you’re doing.

I started Evella Co to create something for me, something to get my creative side flowing again. After becoming a mum, I lost touch.

Like most mothers, it all becomes about the kids, which is completely normal, but I needed out of that bubble, and Evella Co let me do that.

I wanted to create products that brought that day spa experience into the comfort of your own home. We don’t always have time to spend hours at a day spa, but hop in a bath for half an hour, light a candle, game changer.

Evella Co has definitely grown the past 12 months; we have created a gorgeous body range, and we also stock a fabulous range of silk products... and there will definitely be more to come! 

 

How important is self-care to you?

More now than ever, we live busy lives, and we (as women and mums) have a bad habit of not putting ourselves first. I feel a little self-love weekly (if not daily) is a must! I have two young girls, and I’ve made a point of making sure they understand I need a moment every now and again, but also, they do too! 

 

What is a simple pleasure or daily ritual that brings you joy?

Clay face masks! The feeling of the clay drying on your face is so satisfying, such a natural beauty!  

 


What do you do for yourself when you need to slow down or take a break?

Read! I love to read, it’s a passion that I put on hold for a few years while my girls are young, and I’ve recently made time to make that a priority again. I’m absolutely loving it. 

 

Do you have a favourite quote or mantra? What is it? 

You have one life, live it. 

 

Name three things you can’t live without.

My silk pillowcase 

My de-tangle hairbrush 

My wedding band 

I should also add my girls and husband, but that’s a given!
