Essential oils for the cold weather

Essential oils for the cold weather

I love the idea of aromatherapy and what it can achieve, being able to change your mood just by inhaling a couple of drops of plant oil, even being able to heal the body by performing a simple massage. Essential oils start from just a couple of pounds for the cheaper ones but you really need to be careful and make sure you buy good quality – some suppliers dilute their oils or take the oil from the wrong part of the plant in order to try and save costs. I’ve recently discovered Buff & Butter, suppliers of aromatherapy oils and candle-making supplies. Their 100% natural essential oils can be purchased in varying size bottles – ideal for both those who are just dipping their toe in the world of aromatherapy and practitioners who want to buy in bulk.

Living Nature – Foundation

Living Nature – Foundation

This foundation* from New Zealand natural beauty brand Living Nature has won ‘Best Liquid Foundation’ in the latest edition of The Ultimate Natural Beauty Bible by Sarah Stacey and Josephine Fairley. This is a great achievement for a brand that is so little known here in the UK and I really hope it raises the profile of Living Nature as it is a brand that I really admire (I have recently reviewed their Luminous Pressed Powder, you can read that review here). All of Living Nature’s skincare and make-up products are made from 100% natural ingredients, and this foundation contains antimicrobial Manuka Oil, one of New Zealand’s unique botanicals which helps to protect your complexion making it a great choice for those with problem skin. I have been using this foundation for around a week now and I am really pleased with it. I generally use a Tinted Moisturiser as I can sometimes find that foundations are too thick and suffocate my skin, but as this Living Nature foundation...
