  • Springtime Optimism Roller With Citrine

    As the sun comes out to play and things get a little brighter, we thought we would give our optimism and abundance a boost with a supportive handbag roller.

    For those that haven't tried adding crystals to your blends, it might be something worth considering. We love the relationship between crystals and essential oils and how well they can work together on so many levels. For this roller we have added tiny citrine chips. Citrine is associated with positivity and optimism and can be used to assist in manifesting financial abundance and opportunities. 

    What you will need: 

    - Tiny citrine chips

    - 4 drops of pure roman chamomile essential oil

    - 2 drops of pure lavender essential oil

    - 4 drops of pure orange essential oil (beware of light sensitivity)

    - Fractionated Coconut Oil

    How to: 

    Add the chips to the roller, then the essential oils and top up with FCO. Remember that when using crystals in your rollers you will reduce the amount of available space so adjustments may have to be made to avoid too stronger blend. 


  • Natural Shaving Foam with Peppermint, Myrtle and Cedar

    If you are looking for a natural Father’s Day gift this year….. and want to make something with love that can be used and enjoyed regularly we’ve got you covered. 

    This natural foaming shaving cream is so smooth and lathery! We have added some peppermint and myrtle for their fresh and calming properties and a little cedar for a masculine touch. 

    You will need:

    • 1/4 cup Distilled Water
    • 1/4 cup Castile Soap
    • 1/4 cup Aloe Vera
    • 1 Tbsp of Coconut or Almond Oil
    • 1 full dropper of Vitamin E (acts as a preservative)
    • 5 drops pure Peppermint Essential Oil
    • 3 drops pure Lemon Myrtle Essential Oil
    • 4 drops pure Cedar Wood Essential Oil


    How to:

    1. Add the ingredients in a small mixing bowl and stir until well combined. 
    2. Make sure that the aloe has completely dissolved before tipping your mix into a foaming soap dispenser. 
    3. Shake before using as the weight of the aloe can cause the mixture to separate when sitting. 
    4. This recipe creates highly aerated foam and so foams slightly differently to a soap, the foam bubbles are larger and then when you lather the mixture it becomes creamy. 
    5. We have used our 175ml amber glass foamer however, this mix is quite thick and we would recommend choosing a foamer with a larger dip tube such as our 375ml PET foaming bottle for continual use. 

    We’re sure Dad will be impressed with his home made shave foam this Father’s Day. 

  • Calming Camomile, Clary Sage & Manuka Facial Toner

    Why Face Toner is Beneficial...

    Face toners remove leftover dirt, makeup, and oil. Like a second cleanser, toner can help remove the remains of makeup and grime that you may have missed the first go-around in your skincare regimen. It hydrates skin, spritzing toner directly on skin helps replenish moisture. Use it before applying your moisturiser to help seal in the ingredients.

    Toner can make skin appear smoother. Toner can also be applied with an exfoliating cotton round to remove any build-up of dead skin cells
    Using a toner encourages your other skincare products to sink in. After using a pH-balancing toner, your skin will be best prepared to absorb the effective ingredients in your skincare regimen.

    You will Need. 

    - 30ml amber glass atomiser. 

    - 15mls of witch hazel

    - 15mls of distilled water

    - 3 drops of Pure Clary Sage essential oil

    - 3 drops of Pure Manuka essential oil

    - 4 drops of Pure Roman Chamomile essential oil

    To Make...

    1. Add the essential oils to your amber bottle. 

    2. Add 15ml of witch hazel

    3. Top up with distilled water

    How to Use Toner:

    Toner is best applied to fresh skin once or twice daily. As always, stop using it if you notice any redness or irritation.

    1. First, wash your face and gently pat your skin dry.

    2. Shake your toner, and spritz it on your face, neck, and chest. Alternatively, you can pour a bit of toner on a cotton ball or in the palm of your hands and apply it that way.

    3. Allow toner to sink in for about a minute before applying serum or moisturiser. Applying serum or moisturiser while your skin is still slightly damp will help to lock in moisture and keep skin supple.

    4. Apply sunscreen to prevent any potential photosensitivity (sunburn) issues.

    5. Reapply in the evening.

    6. While toner works best on clean skin, you can apply it throughout the day by spritzing as a face mist to refresh the skin or revive your makeup. The nutrients won’t sink in as easily, but it will make your face appear fresher and less dry.
