  1. Its hard to beleive we are thinking about Christmas again, back to manic fair sales this month, but I always enjoy the atmosphere they bring.  This year we have introduced Reed Diffusers to our range, which have proven so popular.  As the nights draw in, I do like to light my candles, and what better fragrance to permiate your home this time of year, than Orange & Cinnamon?  It really is Christmas in a jar!...and to add a touch of style I have added a tartan ribbon, but not just any tartan, the ancient Drummond Clan in black and white which compliments the red jars beautifully.  I have loved reading up about my herritage, and it maybe explains my obsession with tartan! For now, I will use the Drummond motto and say  Gang warily - “Go carefully”

  3. Its hard to beleive its that time of year again. The days are certainly closing in and the nights are so much darker.  As we feel the temperatures drop there is nothing nicer than getting all snug, pj's on and with the fire crackeling away.  The wonderful Christmassy smell of orange and cinnamon emulating from a flickering candle. Our candles have been a popular seller this year.  Simple and beautiful we package them with a little dangling wax heart which can also be used as an air freshener for your wardrobe.  Not only do they look lovely, but they smell sublime.  An obvious choice for Christmas is our Orange and Cinnamon, however we also make our candles in Rose, Orange Blossom, Warm Vanilla Sugar, Fresh Cotton and Black Pomegranate.  We have 3 new products to introduce.  Firstly our cleanser made with almond oil and neroli.  We have also introduced another Shea Body Cream in Orange Blossom and already proving very popular is our vetiver hand cream made with cocoa butter and sweet almond oil. Our Foot Food is a firm favourite for many of our loyal customers, but we must plug it again for all those tired little legs which have been batteling the crowds so that our loved ones can reville in delight on Christmas morning. So for those tired little piggies try our truly amazing, utterly cooling Peppermint Foot Food...ahhh relax! 

  4. Bath Salts 

    The growing fashion for grandmother's favourite cure-all, Epsom salts has become the latest health trend among celebrities including Gwyneth Paltrow and Victoria Beckham.  People don't want synthetic products anymore and are stearing away from foam boosters such as sodium laurel sulphate which is found in so many bath products and is a harsh irritant.  Our amazing bath salts contain Epsom Salts, Dead Sea Salts and Sea Salts with Goats Milk and essential oil of Lavender and Rosemary.  Epsom salts, not only help with aches and pains, but it also helps to draw out toxins from the skin.
