Face Oil £10

Is a wonderful blend of fabulous oils that are bursting with goodness to nourish, your skin helping it repair from the daily ‘stuff’ it goes through. It contains loads of essential fatty acids, vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamin B complex as well as all the other benefits that amazing essential oils provide. Because of the molecular make-up of the oils included they absorb into the skin and penetrate with all of their loveliness deep down, rather than just coating the surface of your skin. The bottles are 20ml and are £8 each

Lip Balm £3

I have suffered with dry and cracking lips for years and accumulated so many lip balms and salves that every coat pocket, bag and don’t get me started on my desk had at least one in it or on it! Contains just a few natural ingredients and is super nourishing and lasts for ages on your lips without having to reapply. Unless of course you just love it and want to!

Room Spray £8

started learning Yoga at the beginning of this year and my wonderful teacher creates a lovely practice environment by having the room in low light, heating the room as well as spraying an essential oil room spray by a well known retailer.
So I did some research and started creating my own and getting her to test them out. They were received very well and plenty of other blends have been imagined and created since.
Options include
Relax
Uplift
Autumn Blend
Christmas Blend

Comfort Balm £5 or £10

I suffer from a small patch of eczema and having read some interesting articles about ‘calendula’ I decided I would have a go at creating a balm to soothe it. It really helped and after my dad had a fall and his feet were very dry and full of a rash I decided I would try it on him. It really helped where no other lotions or creams had. My sister in law uses it on her scaly elbows and lots of my friends use it on their dry feet.
Options are for a small jar £5 or a large jar £10

Have you heard of ‘Mineral Oil?’

Mineral Oil

Sounds like a fancy beauty ingredient doesn’t it.  Go on, go and look at the ingredients in some of your favourite products.  I bet it is in a least one of them.  Rather than go all science on you…. basically mineral oil is derived from petroleum.  Once it has been refined and purified it is then added to products or used as a base for products.  It is very cheap product used mainly for moisturising the skin.  However it doesn’t contain all the goodies that plant derived oils and butters contain. (Yes I know petroleum is very old fossilised liquidised plants.)
Really recommend using these very natural oils for face / body, or even if you have skin concerns. So much better for you than using all these pricey high end products! Give them a go you will love the feel and smell.

Thank you Emma for the oils. Really really good stuff and they smell great, not to mention it does wonders for the face and skin
Ready for my next batch

I just got home and wanted to say a huge thank you for bringing this little necklace into my life. It’s beautiful and the scent you suggested is perfect! I’m looking forward to discovering other smells to pop on the spare felts (Which I didn’t realise came with it…. So Thank you)
