The Botanical Farmer: Bath Botanicals & Candles

I've been trying out The Botanical Farmer's Bath Botanicals and Candles and I can quite honestly say they are gorgeous! The company was started by Sam Ellson who runs the award winning The Traditional Flower Co. and The Artisan Dried Flower Co.

Based in Staffordshire the flower business is a small scale outdoor operation of approximately 8,000 scented rose bushes, over 5,000 herb plants and acres of seasonal flowers and foliage. They plant, sow and harvest most of the ingredients.

I was sent their Bath Botanicals Bath Tea No.4 Citrus Floral* (half ltr jar - £12.00)* and Bath Tea No.7 Rose* (half ltr jar - £12.00)* which are packed in kilner jars as well as two candles* (more about them later!)

The packaging is super cute..

No.4 Citrus Floral Bath Botanical* helps calm and relax and smells simply divine. It's a blend of dried botanicals (rose petals, lavender, lavender grains, chamomile and lemon balm), essential oils and Himalayan Salts. The oils used are Sweet Orange which de-stresses, Rose Geranium helps relieve depression, Lavender helps with anxiety and Bergamot uplifts. All you need to do is fill the cotton muslin bag included and hang from a running tap. When you turn off the tap you can add the bag to the bathwater to infuse further.

No.7 Rose Bath Botanical* is sensual and rosey. Again, a similar blend with Rose Geranium and rose petals (this would be perfect for taking on Honeymoon or for a weekend away).  I love that the packaging is re-usable.

I was also sent two matching natural candles* (small £10) which are simply exquisite. Packed in mini jars the scents are long lasting and natural. Burn time is 14-16 hours and I think they'd make brilliant gifts.

Have you tried any products from The Botanical Farmer? Which scents would you choose?
