Lavender and Petitgrain.



Over the past week I have been making a new standard mix of my handcream/skin balm, using Beeswax from my own bees kept in Trumpington, Cambridge. Previously I just had the one which used, Sea Buckthorn, Geranium and Frankincense. The new one uses Lavender and Petitgrain the citrus balancing the lavender perfectly. Petitgrain is produced by steam distillation from the leaves and green twigs of the Citrus family, usually bitter orange but a petitgrain can be produced from any citrus tree. Fragrant Earth produce a comparative pack with petitgrain from combava (a type of lime), lemon and Manderin.

This combination is especially good for sleep difficulties with both oils having benefits in this regard.

I will be selling this and the original mix at Seedy Sunday on 24th January. You can also buy it from me by mail order. As well as the two standard mixes the new one is £8 for a 60ml pot, the original £750ml. (Makes things easier for me having them in different sizes but actually my supplier running out of the smaller size was the real reason!)

To buy these, book a massage or a consultation to buy a handream with oils chosen specially for your needs contact me at
