Beauty | Magic Organic Apothecary…

moa march 2

Gosh March came and went in a whirlwind of sunshine and heavy showers!  I have only just got used to writing 3 in the date and now I have to write 4!  Spring is zooming by.

This month saw the collaboration with Magic Organic Apothecary and my #natureinthehome link up.  So many beautiful spring images have graced the special hashtag #NITHandMOA it was hard to choose a winner.  But finally I settled for this beauty by Emily of Harry and Frank. I love how Emily has chosen seasonal blooms muscari bulbs, and pussy willow – all displayed in a lovely wooden crate, simple yet really effective.

Emily wins this lovely selection of MOA goodies.


  • Daily cleansing ritual – Inside each Daily Cleansing Ritual you’ll find a super-soft bamboo face cloth and a 50ml pot of The Green Balm. Bamboo fibre is naturally anti-bacterial and apart from being luxuriously soft it’s also one of the most eco materials on the planet.Give your skin a balancing deep cleanse, remove excess oils and impurities.
  • Aphrodite facial oil – A magical blend for radiant skin; this easily absorbed beautifying facial oil helps to smooth fine lines and ward off premature ageing with its nourishing rosehip oil base. Rosehip oil is rich in vitamin A, C and essential fatty acids, its natural skin regenerative properties have been revered in folklore over the centuries all across the globe.  Enriched with precious Damask rose essential oil, especially helpful for dry, sensitive skin types prone to redness and blemishes. Organic yarrow essential oil helps to even skin tone, fragrant rose geranium balances and cleanses, whilst marshmallow extract gently soothes and calms the skin.
  • Fortifying green bath potion – De-stress the mind and relieve aches and pains with this concentrated, revitalising, magical bath potion. An invigorating herbal blend, sure to put the spring back in your step after a long, tiring day.  With skin toning, refreshing peppermint, detoxifying fennel, calming, relaxing fir needle and sweet birch to ease achy muscles and help to soften the skin.  Spell for feeling balanced: Pour 2-3 capfuls into a full bath. Once immersed in the water, breathe in and let the natural essential oils clear the mind and lift your mood…magic!

I use the green balm daily as a make up remover / cleanser and sleep with the aphrodite facial oil on every night.  My skin is glowing!  (more on my new skin regime in another post).
