This is dinner sorted for my hungry bunch this evening. Chickpea Satay Burgers.

    Its Summer!

    Now that our spring cleaning is over, here are some lovely uses of our essential oil blends for you to try at home.

    Next time you are vacuuming the children’s bedroom and even your own, put some Sleepwell essential oil on a cotton ball and place in the hoover. It gives a fresh smell of lavender and … I also place some essential oil scented cotton balls in their wardrobes and drawers. It feels like inhaling the smell of sunshine when you are doing the dreaded housework.

    Replace synthetic bathroom fragrances with Breathwell essential oil blend. A drop or two will pack a punchy pine natural scent after a flushing.

    Make a DIY reed diffuser with our Sleepwell essential oil blend, a base oil like fractionated cocunut or almond oil, bamboo skewers and a small glass bottle. Use a ratio of 30% essential oil blend to 70% base oil.

    New mums 

    As the world congratulates Kate & Williams’s new prince Louis, we think about the best gifts for our amazing new mums. For Isabella my first niece my father bought a selection of bath, body and perfume from Coco Chanel for my sister Rachel, scentsationally filling the hospital room while we were we all joyously in tears. My baby sister Rebecca bought me a blue Hermes bracelet on the arrival of my two boys. Happily I didn’t suffer any fatigue as my double bundle were two years old when they joined us from South Africa.

    New mums need to sleep well day and night. Petalwell hair and body oil can help improve fatigue and relaxation among new mums along with a hand and forearm massage. Energizing. Uplifting and revitalizing.
