tbt to me looking very serious whilst starting on a batch of Blood Orange + Vanilla Sugar Scrub last week 😌 thanks to Hannah for the shot, who had to put up with a very awkward me who isn't so keen on being in front of the camera. Speaking of making, next month we'll be holding a little Meet the Maker event at Wolf & Badger's flagship store in Dover St with some fun things planned! Details TBC soon ✨✨📸 @hannahgabriellemore

Tonight's ritual: Candle burn time testing 'the one' after quite a few iterations... with some Relax + Recover Bath Salts for company 🛀🏽 ✨ Getting back to blending essential oils for this limited edition candle has been fun, frustrating, AND ultimately freeing! I find product creation is like an exercise in letting go of all expectations, learning to see what's right in front of you just as it is, accepting it, and then embracing it without compromise. True to my original vision, I'm really excited to be finally sharing it in a few weeks time!! 🔥✨p.s. It will be available in two sizes exclusively online from islaapothecary.com from 1 November ✨

Are you a skin picker? Do you compulsively pick at your skin, even when there is nothing to pick at? From personal experience, this could be down to dermatillomania. Skin picking could be a sign of addictive behaviour, a way of relieving stress and anxiety, a temporary diversion from negative emotions. Immortelle Scar + Blemish Oil ~ pictured top right, was formulated for whatever reason you may want to prevent scarring. It's an organic blend of sunflower and rosehip oils and skin regenerating essential oils of immortelle, rosemary and lemon. It's light, gentle, and a little really does go a long way ✨💧✨💧✨ Featured and pictured @sofeminineuk

Blood Orange + Vanilla Sugar Scrub deconstructed ☝🏽. If parched skin is a concern, this scrub helps to retain moisture balance and prevent water loss by cocooning skin with a protective barrier thanks to shea butter, unrefined coconut oil and peach kernel oil. 99% of the ingredients sourced are organic and for the last day of organicseptember we're giving away a mini pot with every online order until Sunday night and until stocks last💧✨💧✨

Facial tonight with Refine + Radiate Face Mask with coconut milk powder (vegan - no milk protein), sandalwood powder, and organic turmeric mixed with honey, gentle enough for raw skin, followed by a deep facial massage with a few drops of Immortelle Scar + Blemish Oil to regenerate and rejuvenate 🙋🏽 And then sleep 😴😴😴

Headed out for a walk and some fresh air this morning and despite the mist it was rather warm 🤔 Colours of autumn so vibrant against the grey sky including this thriving lavender, which looks rather lovely in the glass powder jar that houses our bath salts. p.s. Everything we make comes in glass jars or bottles that we encourage you to repurpose. This is one of my favourite ways. If not, it should be easily recyclable - @recyclenow_uk offer advice on how if you're uncertain. It is recycleweek after all 🙂 p.p.s. thanks for all the kind messages since yesterday. I'm on the mend 🙏🏼

On life and business... After months and months of what's felt like operating on auto-pilot, this last month especially of intense activity has been a reminder to Just. Slow. Down. ( And smell the roses ) And it finally feels okay to do that after what's been a long resistance. . This last month has also been a time of reflection. Of all the lessons I've learned so far this year, learning to really take care of me has been the biggest. It's hopefully not too cynical to say that if you don't look after yourself no one else will. Before it was always about trying not to let other people down, and now it's about not letting myself down. I learned this the hard way. Is there any other way??! And without being unkind or self-obsessed, it's important to remember this 😉 . As my little business grows, along with the gratification I find in it, stepping away just to take better care of me I think will always be a challenge but it's one I recognise exists. Today though I'm putting up no resistance as I take time for some r&r to hopefully stave off a cold and to finally recharge. I think the world will carry on spinning in any case! 🙂🙏🏼 . Thanks for listening (reading). Life isn't perfect and it feels good to share and just to say that! And now a herbal tea and long salt bath await! Wishing you all a happy and healthy week ahead xx

🌼Chamomile 🌼 An autumn favourite to help with inflammation. I drink it to soothe digestive issues, and often reach for a cuppa during stressy moments. I also inhale it on the go via the handy Reset Ritual Pulse Point Therapy, also blended with organic lavender and eucalyptus oils (also good for inflammation) 👃🏼✨

Taking back control of my skincare routine was how I started out making simple formulas, which contained ingredients I understood the purpose of! A favourite DIY skincare past time has always been a face mask, and I recently shared my favourite face mask recipe with @balanceldn ✨ It's one I go back to time and time again during or after a breakout. I find it cleanses deeply, disinfects the skin, and is also really good for minimising scarring (i tend to pick) and for hydration! Follow link for more info ✨

A morning favourite: Coffee + Cinnamon Body Polish ☝🏽Making it is also pretty fun ~ every month or so I source a new coffee from a local purveyor, and incidentally most of the coffee I have chosen has come from Central America. This batch includes an organic Guatemalan coffee that compliments the cinnamon essential oil deliciously. It's available in two sizes - 200g and travel friendly 120g and has recently been featured in The Times' lovely post on body polishes 😊✨

"Inflammation is a big factor in many skin problems, from acne to psoriasis, eczema and other skin rashes. It’s what causes the unsightly redness and swelling, as well as the soreness and heat. So calming down the inflammation is vital. It's turmeric to the rescue! One of this spice’s best-known properties is its anti-inflammatory activity, as shown in numerous research studies." Sebastian Pole of Pukka Herbs on the wonders of turmeric! We blend it with sandalwood powder and coconut milk powder for Refine + Radiate Beautifying Face Mask - a really gentle but effective solution for various skin maladies. Mix any way you like! *This pot provides for around 15 masks*
