Sun, Sea and Shipping

The office is now closed for the Holiday break. And though I may I dream of sunny beaches and the sipping of some tall tropical drink while the world goes by, alas it is but a dream.

Work still goes on behind the scenes, and the weekend is being spent wiping off all the cured soap bar faves, and wrapping them ready for the order boxes. They'll be packing today so they can all ship tomorrow to make sure they each arrive in plenty time for the Holidays.

Shipping notices will be going out today, so if you're waiting for your fave soap you'll be getting yours soon. Get ready to check those email boxes.

Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender essential oil takes its name from the Latin Lavare, meaning "to wash". It has been traditionally respected for centuries, and nurses were known to wash the wounds of soldiers with lavender oil during the first world war, when antiseptic supplies were short.

The benefits of lavender oil for the skin are many, and these are probably due to its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory qualities. Many find lavender is very helpful with troublesome skin complaints such as acne, eczema, or psoriasis, and the soothing calm of lavender makes it a friend to sunburn, winter itch, and flaky or cracked skin.

Its varying uses in health and wellness are legendary. Its aroma relaxes, and helps with inducing sleep. Lavender essential oil is also used in aromatherapy for sore muscles, and aches and pains.
