We’ve won two ‘Editor’s Choice’ awards for the Matcha Mojito Foot & Body Scrub and the Precious Petals Beauty Balm with Organic Rosehip, Moringa & Tea Seed, plus a ‘Finalist’ award in the Men’s grooming awards for the Black Seed Beard & Hair Tonic. This now brings us up to a total of SEVEN (which happens to be my favourite number) awards in total, and we haven’t finished yet.
Since I began creating my own natural skin and haircare products, out of a desire to be really in control of what ingredients I come into contact with (and lessen my unconscious, dangerous addiction to plastic-packaged things), I’ve had people asking me to create a shampoo.
You wanted something natural, nourishing, plant-based, GENTLE and pro-zerowaste.
After the usual EU certification to make it legal to sell, I’m happy to announce that the Renaissance Cleansing Grains for Hair & Body is now available! (Yes it’s a one-stop product for washing your hair and body!)
A unique, effective, nourishing blend, this game-changing formulation is the result of countless tweaks to a recipe I’ve been using myself for a long time.
I am rather fussy about what I put in or on my hair, and struggled to find a decent shampoo that doesn’t come full of sulphates, drying ingredients or which is then packaged in a plastic bottle… I’m happy to say that the solution is here!
It’s March! My birthday month! I want to celebrate this month (the best of the 12, let’s be honest) with a lovely little offer of Leafology’s FIRST EVER tealight candle, ‘Divine Dusk’. All orders in the entire month of March of £50 or more receive this special little candle completely FREE! (See below for the lowdown!) What is this magnificent beast?
It’s a vegan, clean-burn, low-waste tealight (free of paraffin and synthetic fragrances, so emits only goodness into the air around your home) perfect for lighting in the evening when finishing the day and winding down. The (entirely natural) aroma is a gentle trio of sensual, relaxing & (dare I say it) seductive essential oils; a medley of lavender, basil & cardamom. (Fittingly, I write this with my hands smelling of fresh basil.)
Plus, it comes in a cute, recyclable, screwtop metal tin (the same size as the lip balms!) so you can even transport it with you when on the move, if that’s your thing.
The situation: I’ve been making these sweet & decadent little mini-candles for myself and they are so beautiful and smell so delicious I really wanted to share. Consider this my equivalent of bringing delicious cake to work for my birthday. That’s really it.
(Confession: everything in the Leafology range has the tea plant in it, in some shape or form, but I’m squeezing this into the arena via a tenuous link; a tealight is tea-related, is it not?! Tea lights were originally so-named because they were lit under a teapot to keep the brew warm!).
How can I get one?
These candles are not available for general sale, but if you’d like to get your hands on one, all you’ve got to do is place an order of £50 or more and a magical ‘Divine Dusk’ tealight is yours – it will be automatically added to your order when we post to you.
… And you can order as many times as you like, throughout the month of March.
Over and out; wishing you wondrous brews, well-lit evenings & tea that never goes cold.

The other day, I watched an outdoor performance of Romeo and Juliet set in the grounds of Oxford Castle (I don’t believe summer evenings can get more quintessentially English). They say (and by ‘they’ I mean Juliet) that a Rose is a rose by any other name (‘That which we call a rose / By any other word would smell as sweet). It’s true, and there’s no mistaking the rosy purity with which this email is unapologetically drenched. I’ll get straight to it:
There’s a new bottle on the block and I think you’re going to like it.
