Fifth Sense in August 2014

We have had a successful beginning in our new shop in Devon.  Most of the time is spent sourcing new products and building up the website.  We have added a few lines to the on-line shop and will carry on to do so over the next few weeks.

Materia Aromatica - Christmas 2014 

Foot & Leg Balm - 100 % organic ingredients

Formulated and designed by us, our foot balm is made with our oils and is 100% organic.  It is a light balm which goes a long way.  Very little is needed indeed, half a peanut size will melt rapidly on contact with the skin and will be more than sufficient to massage and nourish foot and lower leg.
It will soften hard skin that tend to develop on the feet, soothe cracks that can become particularly sore.
Massage the lower leg in upwards motions to promote blood circulation and lymphatic drainage.  Our balm does not contain beeswax which is comedogenic (with a tendency to block pores).  It is formulated with light butters and oils which will leave the skin smooth and nourished with no greasy discomfort.
Fragranced with a refreshing and minty blend of essential oils.

Using Vegetable Oils as basis for formulating a truly natural skin care range

We are often faced with comments such as: 'Oils will make my skin greasy, oily and shiny !'  If it does, you will have either used the wrong type of base oil or put too much of it on your skin. Vegetable oils are made of the same molecules and substances that are already present in the skin.  Each oil has a different texture and therapeutic application.  If used and applied appropriately, they are all your skin  need.  They will leave it clean, soft, nourished and rejuvenated.  

By the end of this article (please follow link) that we have published on our website, we hope that we will have dissipated the worries and misconceptions built around vegetable oils and made you an addict of using skincare formulated with possibly the simplest but definitely the best ingredients that your skin needs.

Australian Oils - Fragonia, Blue Cypress & Kunzea

Finally, after a long wait, we can safely say that we are about to receive our Australian Oils within the next few days.  
Fragonia has become an extremely popular essential oil in recent years.  Due to its unique chemical constituents, its therapeutic effects can be felt across a wide spectrum of ailments and psychological imbalances.
Blue Cypress has anti-inflammatory properties due to its guaiazulene
 content.  It is a warming oil with a woody, reassuring aroma which brings calm and peace.
Kunzea has been found to be a great healer for the skin, improving skin complaints involving eczema, ulcers, treating insect bites and burn.
