In autumn 2014 we launched our Soothing Skin Balm. Made with calendula oil, beeswax, shea butter, Lavender and Sweet Orange Oils, the easily absorbed balm provides a hydrating barrier to repair and calm dry, itchy, flaky skin. Calendula is excellent at healing burns and grazes and calming irritated skin.
All natural, the balm is suitable for eczema and psoriasis.
Here are some of the many ways you can use your tin of balm:
- Apply to dry areas of the face
- Use as a lip balm
- Moisturise dry hands
- Use on nail cuticles
- Moisturise a dry/flaky scalp
- Great for dry heels, elbows, knees
- Apply to insect bites
- Soothe burns or grazes
On the Soap Cabin stall we sell little pouches of Lavender, so here is a run-down of what you can use them for:
- Hang one in your wardrobe to keep your clothes smelling fresh (and moth-free!)
- Put one in your drawer
- Put one under your pillow to help you sleep
- Put them around your home instead of artificially scented pot pourri
- Hang them where you need a natural insect repellent
- Carry in your handbag for on the go relaxation during the day
NB. After 3 months, squeeze the bag to refresh the scent
Christmas seemed to come and go in a flash! I guess there was so much to do beforehand, what with present shopping, getting a window replaced, collecting a pre-ordered panettone from Little Chalfont and getting stock ready for our various Christmas fairs, that once Christmas day came, we could finally relax with an amazing dinner and fun games at my brother’s house in Watford. Boxing day saw a trip to see family in Sussex. We managed to see Exodus at Vue at Woodside, Phantom of the Opera in London and new year fireworks at Croxley Green!
Little Fox starts again in April, so we have a bit of a breather until then, but in that time we have a large order to get on with, Rebel Pebble to stock and supplies to order… A good time to get organised!
