Sunshine makes my skin hungry! While I enjoy using oils on my skin all year around, I find them particularly beneficial during the warmer months, when my skin just seems to drink them in. Oils excel as after sun care moisturisers. At this time of year my skin responds
Treating eczema and other dry skin complaints, naturally… Unhappy skin can impact daily life in a big way – I hope this post will help you on your way to find a solution! Firstly, it’s really important to check the ingredients in your skin products.
We’ve all had those days, weeks or even months when your skin seems to be a law to itself. Having upset, unhappy skin can be very frustrating when you’re not sure what is going to help and what you need to avoid.

Fat, juicy, radiant rosehips. I love how they start their botanical journey as beautifully pink wild roses, delicately dancing in the sunshine. I love how they transform into bright robust jewels, clinging like rubies to frosty branches.
We know it’s a bit early, but some people in our office have already finished their Christmas shopping, so we thought we’d better get a move on with our gift guide! Whether you’re shopping for your other half, or your mum, we’ve got it covered…
What’s all the fuss about palm oil? As you may have noticed, we have a tree theme to our blog this month. (I’ll admit that I am a little obsessed with trees.) They give us so many of the ingredients we need for a healthy diet and healthy skincare.
I really could wax lyrical about the wonders of shea butter (as my friends would no doubt agree!). To me, it’s proof that nature really has provided everything we need for our skin care. It nourishes dry skin, soothes sore, cracked patches and can help to treat a myriad
