Solve all your winter problems with these natural solutions, all handmade in Cornwall.
Lip Balm- Organic and Natural
Lip balm is without a doubt one of the most important winter must-haves. Having dry lips is uncomfortable and if left, can become sore. Some bigger brands can be full of nasty ingredients that only temporarily alleviate sore lips. However, shea butter is a great base ingredient for lip balm; it is a humectant, which means it can restore the moisture in your lips.
That's why it is important to go for an all-natural, organic lip balm. Our collection of indulgent flavours are made with organic, un-refined cocoa butter and shea butter. They are hand made in small batches in North Cornwall and come in an aluminium tin- no plastic in site. So not only are they good for you, they're also good for the planet!
No matter what line of work you are in, come the winter, sore hands can become a problem. Whether you're working hard in hospitality, typing away at your desk or you're a health care hero, the cold temperatures can dry out your skin and make your hands sore. Hand cream can be your saviour, but are they all as good as they seem?
Scented hand creams are lovely, but adding perfume onto your hands when they're already sore can lead to irritation. That's why it is important to find a hand cream that is genuinely good for your skin. This organic Rose Hand Cream is made with all natural ingredients and comes in a glass jar- avoiding plastic packaging! It's a win win for your winter skin.
Winter can be harsh on our hair- rain, wind and cold temperatures can lead to breakage and leave hair feeling rough. Beards are no different! Whether you choose to style your beard or let it grow free and wild, a nourishing beard oil is essential to avoid itching, dry skin and beard dandruff.
When it comes to your health, natural ingredients are always best. These moisturising beard oils, hand made with natural ingredients in North Cornwall, are the perfect assistant to care for your beard in winter.
Whether you enjoy a brisk winter hike or sitting cosy by the fire, nothing can beat a comforting hot drink. When it comes to your favourite hot drink, whether it's tea, coffee, hot chocolate or something weird and wonderful, it has to be done right. But how important is the mug? No one wants half a cup of tea in a fancy mug, or a handle too small you can't hold it. These simple shaped mugs with quirky Cornish gnomes are the perfect accompaniment for that cold winters day. Each with it's own Cornish slang phrase, you can relax with an 'ansum cup of tea and change all your deadlines to 'dreckly'. Don't forget your coaster!
Do you find yourself rummaging through your bag looking for your tiny tin of lip balm, your little box of mints or that shopping trolley pound you know is in there somewhere? These zip-up pouches, made with up-cycled fabrics, are the perfect solution. A place to keep all your winter essentials and more without breaking the bank, or the planet!
