Last day of 30% off sale!

Sale ends at midnight BST tonight!

Well, it’s officially the last day of summer and it’s also the last day of our 30% off August Sale.

But just as the weather forecasters promise a good start to September, we’ll be bringing in some changes in Autumn too.

In the meantime, you can pre-order our Extra Virgin Olive Oil Soap which will be ready in 2–3 weeks.

Let’s hope for a good September as the run-up to Christmas starts! :-)

Final two days of our 30% of August sale – order now while you can!

Only two days left in our 30% off August sale!

We’ve been busy making lots of candles and skincare to keep you going, but our soaps, as always, are going fast.

We’re waiting for more vegetable oils to make more but of course the soaps then need to cure for a month before they’re ready for sale.

But if you want something right away you’ll have to order now before they’re all gone!

You can, however, pre-order our Extra-Virgin Olive soap now to make sure you get them as soon as they’re made.

order now while stocks last in our 30% off bank holiday sale!

30% off sale continues over the Bank Holiday!

Don’t forget we have a 30% off sale until the end of August. our organic soaps are going fast. We made some more Extra Virgin Olive Oil Soap last week but they will take time to cure. In the meantime we only have the following in stock:

  • Roman Chamomile shampoo & body bar x 6

  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil soap x 2

  • French Lavender soap x 5

  • Insect Repellent soap x 5

  • Nettle & Marshmallow shampoo & body bar x 0 (pre–order now at Bank Holiday prices!)

There is no problem with our Lime & Ginger hand wash as this does not need to be cured, and we can make up any of our Skincare Products and Soy Tin Candles as required. We only have a small stock of candle jars in stock and will not be able to source more for the next few weeks. So we advise ordering these on a first – come, first – served basis as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

Don’t forget that you can always call us on 08000 664 916 if you have any questions - if we’re not available please do leave an answerphone message and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

30% off August Sale!

30% off August sale!

This is a slightly extended version of our latest blog post.

You may have read earlier that our order emails are working properly again and wondered what this was all about. Lots of things went wrong when we recently upgraded our website, and there are still a few problems that need ironing out. For instance, the pounds sign doesn't show up properly, our affiliates are not able to log in, our offsite newsletter isn't working correctly and customers can't redeem their bonus points. But, at least, when they order something, they receive an email to tell them their order has been placed; is being processed; and has been completed (i.e. dispatched).

As we continue to fix our website problems, we're very aware that the traditional summer holiday period in August is one where people start to think about stocking up for the autumn and, dare I say, for Christmas. And we've always had a sale over the end of August Bank Holiday. (I think there should be two in August, one at the beginning and one at the end, don't you?)

So, to help you all, and to help us catch up with some of you who may have been reluctant to place orders while we had problems with our website, we're putting a 30 % off everything sale on from now until the end of August.

So why not order something for those dark, gloomy nights ahead, or to save you running out to the shops in the rain, or even to have in for a Christmas present for a loved one?

Or, better still, why not just treat yourself to a pampering gift while the price is right?

Please keep up-to-date with us as we continue to get the website back up to speed, but be assured that our products are as good as ever and our ordering system is now working as it should.

Enjoy the rest of the sunshine while you can!

Celebrate the commonwealth games

Celebrate the Commonwealth Games with us!

With the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow starting tonight, it looks as if we’re in for another glamourous opening ceremony as well as some major athletic feats. The venue of course has significance this year as we’re all focused on how Scotland will vote on independence.

Not all of us will be glued to the TV for all the events, of course, but I bet most of us will have a few drinks over the next ten days to celebrate either the opening ceremony, the games themselves, our favourite athlete or just the glorious summer we’re experiencing at the moment.

So how can we at [Essentially Natural] ( help?

Well, if you do have a wee drop too many of the hard stuff, then we can offer something that will help you get through the next day (in addition of course to your own hangover remedy of a full fry-up, raw egg, hair of the dog or whatever takes your fancy).

We’ll give you one of our Hangover Eye Pillows free with your order over the next ten days while stocks last.

What’s an eye pillow, you ask? It’s a little bag, filled with linseeds and full of organic essential oils that you pop in the freezer for an hour or two and then place over your eyes. Lie down or sit back comfortably, close your eyes and let the coolness of the linseeds and the freshness of the essential oils do their work.

Better than a pack of frozen peas or similar for that aching head, I guarantee, and as you breathe in the fragrance of the oils your whole body will relax and your breathing will slow.

So that’s our contribution to the Commonwealth Games.

I’d better get on with work and take the dogs out so I don’t have to work this evening and can watch the opening ceremony!

Darn those bugs!

Insect Repellent Soap selling fast!

We’re experiencing hotter days than usual but, at least where we are, the high humidity means that our little buggy friends seem to bite us more as we perspire in the heat. Our 100% organic insect repellent soap is selling fast, as also are our citronella products. To use the soap, just wash in the normal way (face, forehead, neck, arms, etc.) and lightly rinse so the citronella and lavender oils can do their work. If you do get bitten, try a few drops of vinegar, or, if you have them, make up a massage oil with a couple of drops of clove, lemon and chamomile in your favourite carrier oil such as sweet almond, jojoba or even olive or sesame if you have nothing else. Use a few drops of chamomile in the carrier oil on its own if you like, but never use any essential oils directly on the skin. Lavender is an exception with care, but certainly do not use clove or lemon as these are irritants. Always only use a drop or two of any essential oils per 100ml, and apply very sparingly.
