Jo Farren and Shani Croft, are the two herbalists behind The Herb Garden. They live and work local to Hitchin and make high quality and quite lovely products using simple raw ingredients which have herbal and aromatherapy benefits.
Where possible they use organic ingredients with no artificial scents and chemicals and they adhere to strict EU standards.
I was sent two massage candles in Relaxing* and Refreshing* (£10) and massage bars in Warming* (£8 for 2).
Relaxing scent is made with Lavender and German Blue Chamomile with a soy wax base. Soy wax has a lower melting point and is combined with organic Almond oil and organic Shea butter. Light and let the candle burn before blowing the flame out and applying the scented oil to the skin. This is lovely to use just before bed to calm and relax.
Refreshing scent again blends Soy wax, organic Almond oil and organic Shea butter with oils of Peppermint, Eucalyptus and Thyme which enliven and awakens and is also great to clear the mind or sinuses. Apply the melted wax to the soles of your feet to ease congestion and for a good night's sleep.
Warming scent spicy Cinnamon is blended in a massage base with Ginger, sweet Orange and Lemon. Rub in hands to melt the wax to an oil and apply to the skin.
The massage candles and bars are really lovely and well priced. I can't actually pick a favourite scent as they are all really effective depending on your mood. Pick yours up HERE.
