I am in the process of creating a skincare range that uses the therapeutic qualities of essential oils to both support skin health, repair and renewal and to enhance your sense of well being as each product is absorbed into your skin and as you inhale the fragrance. I think this combination is quite unusual and I think reflects the growing desire to find holistic solutions to everyday health and well being; the desire to move away from synthetic chemicals and synthetic mood enhancers.
I am very aware that packaging is of great environmental concern, particularly plastic, so I have used glass wherever possible but where it is not practical(in the bathroom with greasy fingers!) I have used PET plastic bottles and jars which are recyclable, click this link for more information.
The initial range will include a Day and Night Moisturiser, Facial Mist,Body Lotion and Body Butter.
I also offer a bespoke service; contact me with your particular skin concerns and after a consultation, either in person or via email, I can make up a product that will be uniquely tailored to your needs. There is often a bit of to and froing to this process as we fine tune the product so initial products are usually in smaller, affordable quantities until we get it right!

Moisturiser for skin that has lived and loved
A light,emollient cream to hydrate and smooth the skin and then lock in the moisture all day while your skin faces the elements!
The cream has a creamy feel that glides onto the skin and is quickly absorbed. Both Rosewater and Aloe Vera work to heal and soothe stressed skin, especially skin affected by photo aging and environmental stressors. Sweet Almond, Jojoba oil and Shea butter oil help to prevent moisture loss, softening the skin and improving elasticity, as does Borage oil which is high in GLA. Pomegranate seed oil is packed with antioxidants and is said to aid in the production of collagen, aiding skin repair and renewal.
The real stars of the show though, are the essential oils, which work hard to minimise the appearance of fine lines, help cell regeneration and boost skin circulation as well as promote feelings of calm and positivity at the same time as invigorating and uplifting! These olfactory stars are Frankincense, Patchouli, Palma Rosa and Lemon.

Night Moisturiser for skins that desire plumpness
A sumptuous cream smelling delicately of rose. Packed full of goodies to support your skin’s natural cycle of cell regeneration and repair while you sleep; oils and butters contain fatty acids that support the production of collagen and assist in cell repair; reducing the appearance of fine lines over time and helping your skin to stay supple and elastic. Vitamin C, as well as supporting collagen production to firm the skin, balances out the pigmentation of the skin to create an even tone and reduce the effects of photo aging. Carrot Tissue oil is rich in beta-carotene and in vitamins A, B, C, D, E and F and is what gives the cream its pale gold colour.
Last but not least the essential oils; Rose rejuvenates and heals whilst creating a sense of relaxed well-being, Frankincense tones and reduces the appearance of fine lines whilst lifting your spirits, Myrrh heals and preserves skin tone and will ground and calm your emotions and finally, Patchouli supports cell regeneration, helping scars and lines to fade, acting as an anti-depressant and a mild aphrodisiac!
