Thank you to the fab @beatriceturner for sharing this snap of her oil of choice in her diffuser today & what a great choice it is! One of our personal favs also!
Our organic bergamot essential oil is fresh, soothing & uplifting to the spirits. It helps promote optimism & is the perfect choice to banish away any sneaky blues!
Enjoy Beatrice ๐Ÿ˜˜

We had a little day trip to Margate yesterday & popped in to see the lovely Alex in her beautiful new treatment space & wellness shop @mokshatherapies_
We were especially thrilled to see how gorgeous our oils looked among so many other wonderful natural & toxic-free products.
We would highly recommend popping in to check the new space out & stayed tuned for a potential workshop coming up ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

I am still never bored of the sight of a lavender field in full bloom, isnโ€™t it quite something! A good friend recently visited a British lavender farm & sent me these snaps so had to share! They also attract thousands of our much needed friends ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ

Our blending notebook offers an introduction to the art of formulating your own aromatic & botanical creations. It is full of the theory, measurement guidelines & plenty of recipe ideas to help get you started in creating your own aromatherapy elixirs at home.
.
The notebook makes the perfect companion for anyone just starting out or further developing their own exploration into the world of blending aromatics & essential oils. It also makes the perfect gift for any budding aromatherapist.
.
Learn how to train your nose, build your essential oil repertoire & try your hand at making your own natural products following our starter recipes from industry expert Julia Lawless, that include ideas for individual perfumes, room fragrances, the ultimate natural bug repellent, moisturising body oils & bespoke facial oil treatments suited to different skin types.
The second half of the book contains interactive journal pages, for you to record, keep track of & refer back to your own experiments, discoveries & observations.
.
Formulating your own aromatic creations is entering a world of natural โ€˜alchemyโ€™. The main advantage to making your own aromatherapeutic formulations is that your blend is made up & tailored entirely to suit your own individual needs & preferences. It is an enjoyable, easy, effective & rewarding experience that promotes healthy & natural substitutes for the many synthetic, toxic & chemical products with which we are surrounded by.

Summer hedgerows including yarrow.
Yarrow essential oil is extremely relaxing & soothing & is great for skincare as is gently healing. It has a fresh green, herbaceous scent & blends well with chamomile, cedar wood, vetitvert & valarian. All perfect for creating a suuuuper relaxing sleep blend! ๐Ÿ’ค

Happy Sunday all!
Weโ€™re keeping cool in the sea today ๐ŸŒŠ

We explored some poly tunnels in Bristol yesterday for some inspiration on growing ourselves... especially herbs that are so easy to propagate & have multiple uses at home.
Check Juliaโ€™s blog post on our website back in April, all about getting inspired in the garden & growing medicinal plants & herbs, as well as how to use them at home.
This relentless heat wave however has brought with it difficulties in keeping everything watered - itโ€™s a full time job - much like keeping ourselves & our skin hydrated in this heat... Remember to use water sparingly though so not to waste the precious stuff throughout the summer.
Happy Friday everyone! ๐ŸŒฑ

U is for unwind.... and weโ€™re here in Wales for a long weekend to do exactly that! โœŒ๐Ÿผ

It set to be another scorcher today ๐ŸŒž
We just love this snap from the gorgeous @kimmylwilliams sharing her natural skin care products whilst out & about in the sun...
A good SPF protection is essential to guard & protect skin cells from UVA damage such as this natural choice from @greenpeopleuk
Our refreshing, fragrant neroli water mist keeps skin cool & hydrated in the heat & is suitable for all skin types, plus our super nourishing avocado oil. ๐Ÿฅ‘ Rich in proteins & vitamins this literally feeds the skin after exposure to the sun keeping it naturally moisturised, replenished & nurtured.
Happy weekend all!

U is for Uplift.... Here is a flashback to my trip earlier this year to Majorca, where lemon trees are abundant! ๐Ÿ‹
Weโ€™re all familiar with ice & a slice in our drinks, however lemon is not only refreshing in this heat, lemon essential oil is also incredibly uplifting & purifying, it acts as a great detox aid & also helps reduce cellulite!
I like to put a drop or two of lemon or grapefruit oil into my shower gel or direct onto my sponge in the morning shower to kick-start my day! ๐Ÿšฟ
The wonderful zesty citrus smell is a beautiful burst in the morning to help me get going & leaves my skin feeling refreshed & invigorated. ๐Ÿ’›
