Here I am, tea in hand, sitting by the fire, contemplating the very appealing prospect of a Neals’ Yard Orange & Geranium bath, a truly therapeutic, not to mention gorgeous smelling experience. Neal’s Yard Remedies is a quintessentially British Institution. Pioniers in natural therapies when most were focused on the chemical & synthetic, its vision was to bring the apothecary back to life – I love the fact that Neal’s Yard wanted to connect with the knowledge of the past – & it is really resonating now more then ever.
Neal’s Yard focus is on health & happiness & way’s of improving our well being.
I have been a huge fan since its inception & went to extraordinary lengths to stock up on its products when I lived away from old Blighty a few years ago. Their rose cream is one of their many award winners & has truly healing properties.
Other favourites include white tea toning eye gel, frankinscence hydrading night cream as well as a fabulous range of shampoos. I guarantee that the smell alone will send you rushing back for more.
Eco headquarters with an obsession for improving health naturally, and a passion for the environment
I would love to visit the eco-headquarters and physic garden in Gillingham, Dorset where they design, test and make all their own products. Neal’s Yard admit to being obsessed with discovering and delivering natural ways to improve health & also believe passionately that the environment is of vital importance, & support and promote organic farming and the use of certified organic ingredients in their products.
Of course, they also sell tea! Very healthy, therapeutic tea!
Lemon Balm & Rose tea is one of my favourites.
Neal’s Yard also say no, it’s a clever way of promoting their ethos & I for one will continue to seek out their creative range of healing products.
