Focus On

Rosehip Seed

Rosehip seed is a really useful, versatile oil in every day skincare with a multitude of benefits. The oil is extracted from the bright red hips left after the rose has flowered. Cold-pressed oil is best, as it retains more nutrients than oil which has been processed using heat in the extraction process. This is why all our carrier oils are cold-pressed.

Particularly effective for dry, sun-damaged & mature skin types, it is packed with a host of nutrients. It is one of the richest plant sources of Vitamin C & high in retinoic acid which can help to eliminate fine lines and visible signs of ageing. Full of powerful antioxidants & omega fatty acids, it is excellent for restoring dull, lacklustre skin & reducing the appearance of stretch marks, sun spots & scarring.

Use at home every day in place of a facial moisturiser, or blend it with your choice of essential oils to create an overnight replenishing treatment oil.



Grapefruit is a fresh & cleansing essential oil known for its purifying, toning & stimulating properties. It makes an excellent detox aid, particularly useful if suffering from bloated bellies after the festive season! It is known to help tone the skin & tissues & is fantastic for the treatment of cellulitis & water retention. It is one of the main ingredients, along with geranium, in our award-winning toning & stimulating 'Purity' body oil which can be used daily to help combat cellulite & eliminate toxins.

Simultaneously, grapefruit also helps boosts the immune system, is fantastic for the treatment of congested & oily skin & is great for the circulation, muscles & joints.

Add 5-8 drops of the essential oil direct to a full bath or blend with a carrier oil to make your own refreshing body oil or skin rub. Check our blending notebook for body oil recipe ideas!

Sleep is vital to our sense of well-being. The amount of sleep we require is different for everyone. But one thing is certain: we all need adequate sleep in order to perform our daily tasks and to keep our energy levels and spirits up! Sleep experts suggest that most adults require between seven and eight hours of sleep per night and that in the longer term, sleep deprivation can have a significant impact on our mental and physical health. So it is vital to ensure we get enough deep sleep (the sleep we experience in the middle of our sleep cycle) since this can dramatically improve our quality of life.

New Year Rituals

Monday, Jan 28, 2019

Now the Christmas lights have been taken down and the festive decorations have been packed away, it is a natural time to think: ”Well, what now?” Spending some quiet time reflecting on our achievements and mistakes over the past year and assessing our goals for the months ahead is a healthy and constructive way to ease gently into the New Year. Of course, it is not helpful to worry needlessly over past problems, but it is always useful to consider why something went wrong and what is within our power to change within ourselves. In this way, perhaps we don’t make the same mistakes again in the future! At the same time it is good to take responsibility for our own life in a pro-active way, since it is by having a positive ‘can do’ attitude that we are able to succeed and fulfill our aims.

I was fortunate to attend the launch of the ‘Botanical Bible’ in London recently, a beautifully illustrated book written by Sonya Patel Ellis which has just been published by William Collins. It represents a very ambitious project in that it covers not only the evolutionary history of botanical plants but also their prominent cultural role in the development of art, gardening, medicine and science…. as well as providing lots of interesting recipes to try out.
