It's the time of year when lots of people are busy going on holiday, weekend breaks, festivals and spending more time out and about or in the garden.
So, I decided to share my Summer Essentials from Neal's Yard.
Citronella Formula - a natural insect repellent made with witch hazel and citronella and other insect repellent essential oils.
Bee Lovely Lip Balm - 3% of all sales of the Bee Lovely range are donated to charities which help to protect and save the bees.
Rose and Geranium Body Polish to help exfoliate your skin and keep it in tip top, smooth condition for the summer time. This is mild enough to use on a daily basis in the bath or shower. If you prefer a more abrasive exfoliator, the Geranium and Orange Body Scrub would be the one to choose.
Wild Rose Body Elixir which really gives a gorgeous glow when applied to the skin. It has a gorgeous natural scent, helps to protect and rejuvenate the skin and an unusual texture which is similar to a balm, but not solid. I also use this on very dry areas such as my elbows and heels.
Travel Kit which contains 5 essential items: Geranium & Orange Shower Gel (50ml), Organic Defence Hand Spray (50ml), Organic Facial Wipes (25 wipes), White Tea Facial Mist (8ml) and Wild Rose Beauty Balm (15g).
If you have the type of skin that is easily irritated by being out in the garden or in the sunshine, then I would also include the following from the supplements section:
- Calendula and Oat Lotion
- Calendula, Stellaria or Lavender and Aloe Cream - these are all handy 30ml sizes and ideal for popping in your bag.

If you are local (Stockport SK1), as an independent consultant for Neal's Yard, I can place an order for you and am able to offer free samples and gifts which are not available via their website.
Until next time
