Let nature help you combat exam season.
Exam season is fresh on the horizon. Whether you’re one of the unlucky ones headed for the big LC (Leaving Cert!) or working from home and suffering all-too-familiar Zoom fatigue, working around the clock can have all sorts of detrimental effects on our wellbeing and minds.
Luckily, there are ways you can support yourself and prevent complete burnout, particularly in times of high stress such as this. We’ve compiled a list of our favourites products to consider below. All deDANÚ products are expertly and sustainably sourced, scientifically formulated to support your hard-working, well-deserving body and mind.
In the run-up to exam time, it’s natural to feel stressed, anxious and like you might not last the pace. Read on to find out how to cultivate resilience, boost concentration and most importantly… stay well.
In an age of screens and short, snappy content, concentrating for long periods of time seems to be getting increasingly difficult. Constant stimulation fatigues the brain, resulting in a complete lack of ability (or desire!) to concentrate. Feeling unproductive can amp up frustration and anxieties, leading to a negative domino effect on the wellbeing of our minds.

When we are stressed our immune function decreases leaving us at greater risk for contracting common colds, viruses…. It can even amp up those pesky allergies too. It’s difficult to perform at our best, when we’re not feeling our best.
Keep germs and pesky colds at bay. Our specifically crafted Shield Wellness Roller combines eucalyptus, rosemary, lemon, cinnamon, clove and grapeseed essential oils to boost the immune system and provide you with the protection you need at home… and on the go!
