September Product of the Month – Lengthening Mascara

Lengthening Mascara

I don’t know about you, but over the last few years I have been very concerned about the make-up I wear as well as the skincare I put on my body.  Whilst Neal’s Yard no longer do a range of make-up they did keep this, their most popular product and I am so glad they did!

I have been using it now for a couple of years and would not change.  One coat gives a lovely daytime coverage or leave it to dry before adding a second coat and it gives the perfect extra coverage for evening eyes.

It’s the only mascara I’ve tried that doesn’t hurt my sensitive eyes or damage my eyelashes and above all it smells of CHOCOLATE!  Seriously, it does and that comes from one of the main ingredients Carnauba wax.  Here is what Neal’s Yard have to say about it.

July product of the month – Beauty Sleep Concentrate

People often ask me which is my favourite Neal’s Yard product and that’s a very difficult one to answer.  You see it changes with the season or when I try something new or when I rediscover something I haven’t used for a while.

I should, however, be able to narrow it down to just one product a month!  This product will be available to test in my treatment room, so please ask if you’re having a treatment and I’ll also be doing a quick review in my monthly newsletter and a slightly longer one here on my blog.

With shorter nights during the summer, every moment of sleep counts and this little beauty (no pun intended) is a double hit.

The blend of ylang ylang, orange, clary sage and patchouli oils within help evoke a feeling of peace and well-being.  The aromatherapy of these oils creates space in the mind which allows for a restful and restorative nights sleep.

The light, serum-like moisturiser contains narcissus bulb and grapeseed oil which naturally help to lock moisture into the skin without leaving a heavy or greasy feeling.  You can read more about it on the Neal’s Yard website here.

Apply 2-4 pumps after your evening cleansing routine (whatever that may be) and you can use after a serum or just on it’s own.  I find that at this time of year two pumps is sufficient to cover the face and leave my skin fresh and hydrated in the morning.  Don’t forget to hold your hands up to your face after you’ve applied it and breath in slowly and deeply to get the maximum effect of the aromatherapy benefits.

I’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas about the products I feature so please feel free to leave comments below, but I’d also love to hear about your favourites so do get in touch and if you send a photo then I may feature it and send you a little thank you present.

Holistic Treatment Day

If you’re in need a of a little pampering, spiritual development or exploration, then this is not to be missed.  The setting is very rural, so peace and quiet and a connection with nature is a given.  The farmhouse is energised and welcoming – so is the kitchen table, which will be groaning with goodies (mainly homemade) – sweet, savory, gluten-free and vegetarian options will be available as we want everyone to feel included.

These open days were started by us, a group of friends who share a passion for spiritual and holistic development.  We are in the picture above – Claire, Denise, Gill, Barbara, Gaynor and me (Anne).  We wanted to share our passion with others – as many as possible really, so if you’re reading this and are interested, or know someone who may be, then jump to the contact details at the bottom of this article and give us a call to book.  You don’t even have to have a treatment, you can just come and soak up the atmosphere, and if there are still spaces available you can book something on the day.  Otherwise you can sit in the kitchen with a cup of something delicious and chat with  like-minded people, knowing that if you want to discuss or find out about the higher conciousness or duality or connecting with the inner self, then you are in the best company and will not be given sideways looks as we often do in other company!

The ‘treatments’ we offer include: reflexology, CKT, sound healing, Reiki, numerology, tarot readings, meditation groups (in the garden if the weather is good) and native american medicine card readings.  As well as the treatments and nice things to eat and drink, there will lovely things to purchase too: a good selection of crystals and gifts, Neal’s Yard Organic Remedies (with a consultant on hand to answer questions), homemade creams as well as a charity raffle.  All proceeds from the raffle and donation pot on the table will be going to the Road Victim’s Trust (RVT).

If you would like to book a treatment or would just like to come along and meet us, then please contact Claire or Gill on the details below and they will be pleased to give you directions.
