Just a handful of these original Wanderwood Candles left. We’ll be introducing new copper tins next month to keep the candle in the range permanently but these ☝🏼 beautifully hand thrown one-offs won’t be available again. Wanderwood is an ALL-NATURAL soy-wax candle that blends four pure high-quality essential oils for a true aromatherapeutic experience. No horrid synthetic fragrance load here ✌🏼

Infusions for new things ✨ Over the last year I’ve been tinkering with some beautiful ingredients, bringing them together, deconstructing them and re-blending again. A fun, fascinating, frustrating process but getting so close to the completion of a few new products 🌼✨can’t wait to share soon ✨

Had a really wonderful last few days. Even though illness struck me at my yoga retreat and I didn’t get to do much of what I had planned, I rested and rested and it felt so good. The best part - I was surrounded by an amazing group of intuitive, kind, caring and nurturing women and when I wasn’t sneezing and coughing it was full of pure joy. {Plus how amazing was the moon?!} As I set off home this morning, Amanda @asapoth messaged and in twenty minutes I was in Lewes at her beautiful shop ☝🏽😍 _ finally as I have been trying to make it here all year to meet her! We chatted business - I could have carried on for ages - and I was very kindly gifted First Aid Kit 2 and the new Wild Beauty Balm. So far, so in love. I drove home thinking what a beautiful way to end the year and to start a new one - full of kindness and feeling so grateful for it. It is a new year but the reality is is that all that was started in 017 and before, continues on... and I hope that whatever it is for you, it culminates in contentment, joy, and gratitude ✨✨

I wish I could say that I’ve had time to do this the last few weeks but alas my usual routine went out the window a little bit ... and I’ve been waiting for tomorrow when I’ll be retreating to the south coast to do nothing but yoga, meditation, sound baths, reiki, coastal walks, and listen to and watch the ocean instead of a phone screen ✨ 😘 p.s. If you place an order between tomorrow and 1 January it will be sent out on the 2nd ✨ 📸 Ideal situation on most days by @sarasteelesnaps

Freshly poured Nourishing Hair + Scalp Oil (minus labels) 💦 A herbal medley of Clary Sage, Black Pepper, Rosemary, and Thyme essential oils in an Argan and Coconut base ~ massage in to the scalp (preferably before bed if you’re washing your hair the morning after) to help purge product and environmental build-up, and to over time, improve circulation of blood to the scalp, which carries essential nutrients to the hair follicles 🙌🏼 Or use the pipette to add a few drops to your shampoo a couple times a week, and as a bonus, as a finishing oil for the ends after styling✨💦

Well... 35 trips around the sun complete ☄️ ✨ A year of intense personal transformation that 365 days ago I knew I needed but didn’t think I was ready for. Today, life is full of infinitely more love and more self-love. Life isn’t more peaceful - not sure that is possible, but there is more peace within. Today I celebrate a more honest life, a simpler life with less attachment, and a life for which I’m fully awake and more present for than ever before. I’m not a different person but I’m not the same as I was 365 days ago and for that I’m so very thankful 🙏🏼 📸 Roaming Regent’s Park earlier today working off the excesses of yesterday 😷

“Self-care is about not waiting for someone else to give you what you want.” One of the best things I’ve heard this year... wise words from Natasha @foragebotanicals (thanks 🙏🏼😘) who I had the pleasure of featuring on the blog back in the summer. 2017 has really solidified what self-care means to me and what a relief to finally have the penny drop that EVERYTHING I could ever want and need is within. Nothing more, nothing less 😊 ☮️ 📸 coppery fern @libertylondon

You might have noticed that our packaging is pretty minimalist. The product & the glass jar or bottle is it! I designed the packaging around what was absolutely necessary to minimise the need for recycling at the source, and to encourage re-use/up-cycling ✨ This also means working with local artisans and sourcing our supplies from local family-run businesses as much as is possible. In more efforts towards zerowaste we had some large cotton tote bags made to help decrease the everyday habitual need for plastic & recycling ~ It’s a cliché but it is the small changes that will make a collective difference. So, I am gifting one to you with your order placed through islaapothecary.com this week until stocks last. but of course, if you want your order before Christmas, tomorrow is the very last day to place it to ensure you receive it. Okay, thanks! 📸 @alegraorganics

IN LOVE with this pretty illustration of Refine + Radiate Beautifying Face Mask by the talented Lauren @topshelfieillustrated ! I first saw it on the @refinery29 website some months ago and had no idea who did it until a few days ago 😍😍😍 You can sample Refine + Radiate in the Discovery Kit, and you can also get it as a set with Immortelle Scar + Blemish Oil, an organic blend of Rosehip and Sunflower oils with essential oils of Immortelle, Lemon & Rosemary. Both of our facial products have been formulated for angry, reactive, slow-healing skin types in search of a gentle, effective skincare regimen ✨✨

I never knew I wanted a personalised razor until I got one 👆🏼😍 Big thanks to @frictionfreeshaving ! More than that though, FFS replenish razors every month making shaving more hygienic, AND the handle really is for life ~ minimising your plastic throwaways, which I feel even more urgency over now after watching Blue Planet the other day (😨). I’ve also photographed it with Blood Orange + Vanilla Sugar Scrub because scrubbing your legs regularly when you shave regularly can prevent ingrowing hairs, help to soothe skin irritations thanks to the shea butter, minimise seasonal flakey skin, and really it is a lovely morning ritual to get the lymph moving and circulation flowing ✨✨✨

The Dalmatian one, as I call it. Out of the thirty large candle vessels Ricky made by hand for Wanderwood, this is one of my favourites. It’s like a coin - both sides are different. If you want this particular one, just let me know in the notes of your order or send me a message and I’ll set it aside for you ✨🔥✨

Stock replenishing day after an amazing few days of stock flying out the door - thank you if you placed an order, it’s on its way to you! So starting with Refine + Radiate Beautifying Face Mask, a blend of sandalwood powder, and food-grade organic turmeric powder and organic, vegan coconut milk powder. A gentle, effective blend for dry, acne-prone, and angry skin in need of calming. Mix any way you like, honey is my favourite for an extra boost of moisture 😊

✨Thoughts on turning TWO ✨ (not me, Isla Apothecary) All in all, quite a bizarre 2017! But my main take-aways: a) the people I have met b) let’s be honest I’m sure we have all felt at times that what we do, whatever it may be, has seemed futile against what has been going on in the world and our own personal trials and tribulations, but I have personally found the will and motivation to carry on often times because there was no alternative but to carry on but also out of truly loving what I do - don’t get me wrong, there have been days when i’ve had to dig pretty deeply to remind myself of that but we are all just doing our best at any given moment and our contributions are important, and most importantly c) Customers. They / You are the real reason I keep moving forward so infinite gratitude from me to you and a lorra lorra Love !! 😊😊😊 and yes I usually look this pensive when weighing Shea butter 😉
