The surprising solution to life’s stress: anatomē oil

Brendan Murdoch has his sights on the booming wellness trend at his new London store

If you’re looking to sharpen your mental focus or simply a better night’s sleep. We may have found your answer: anatomē, the wellness and nutrition brand from entrepreneur Brendan Murdoch.

Enter anatomē’s debut store and you’ll find a peaceful – and delicious smelling – refuge in the heart of Shoreditch. Part Scandi-coffee shop, part minimalist botanist laboratory, adorning the shelves are a range of premium organic health products and luxury fitness gear.

GJ highlights include the essential oil elixirs, produced in collaboration with the celebrated perfume curator Anastasia Brozler. With names like ‘expression + confidence’, ‘recovery + sleep’ they can be applied to sensory points on your body, added to a bath, or left to bubble away in a diffuser.

Then there’s Winder Ton – professional nutritionist and dietician on hand to help you the right potion or lotion for your personal needs. And once that’s done, settle down for a cold pressed juice, protein shake, or leave suitable-edgy with a Monmouth coffee.

Here at the GJ we fully approve of some much-needed pampering after a long day in the office; below we’ve selected our favourite pick-me-ups from the anatomē range:
