Hi Fragrant Earth Fans! 
This Sunday, 6th March,  is Mother's Day, and here at Fragrant Earth, we have loads of amazing products that would make lovely gifts for your Mum. 
Here are just a few ideas to get you inspired! 

 First up is The Secret Soap Store Shea Line Handcream in Damask Rose. This product won an In Style Best Beauty Buy Award, and it's easy to see why. It contains 20% Shea Butter to soothe and smooth the skin, and lemon juice to delay aging, and brighten the skin and nails. It also contains nourishing Olive Oil which strengthens the skin, and brittle nails. The Damask Rose scent is beautiful and your Mum is sure to love it! 

 Another great gift would be the Argan & Goats Lifting Serum. With Argan Oil, gold, and Goat Milk protein, this anti-aging serum firms and illuminates skin, smooths wrinkles, and makes skin velvety and soft. After a month of use, skin looks younger.

What about treating your Mum to a relaxing bath with our Bee& Honey Nourishing Bath Lotion? It is packed with herbs, and a real piece of beeswax, and is very moisturising. 

Make your Mum's day even more relaxing with some lovely fragrances. Our Freesia True Grace candle with natural wax, burns true with the scent of a fresh, spring English garden for 40 hours. 

And our Lavender Reed Diffuser has the most relaxing, natural  fragrance, that will last for 10 weeks. 

Finally, our Olivos Woman Soap is a feminine, luxurious beauty soap bar with a gorgeous fragrance, sure to make your Mum smile.

Have a Happy & Fragrant Mother's Day!

Argan Oil

I love Argan Oil. It's a miracle ingredient that's becoming ever more popular, and is found in lots of beauty products. Here at Fragrant Earth, our 100% Argan Oil is pure and natural, and is only £14.15 for a bottle. It's from our amazing Argan & Goats range that combines two of nature's beauty treasures, Argan Oil and Goat Milk

 Here's my top 11 reasons to love Argan Oil: 

1. It contains Vitamin E and Antioxidants which boost hair cells.
2. It soothes dry and flaky scalps.
3. The Omega 3 and Fatty Acids that it contains heal split ends, and softens hair.
4. It can reduce acne and is full of Vitamin A and C which is great for healing stretch marks.
5. It makes skin and hair glow!
6.  It smooths lips.
7. It is anti-inflammatory and can heal Eczema.
8. It improves the condition of  nails and cuticles, and can encourage nails to grow. 
9. It moisturises dry and cracked hands and feet.

 10. It is anti-aging 
11. Argan Oil comes from the nuts of the Argan tree, which is only found in Southwestern Morrocco. It is produced almost exclusively by women's cooperatives which empower them and provide them with a livelihood.

Essential Oil Use


Ambient Fragrancing

Cheap or Expensive Oil


Product Review: Olivos Ottoman Bath Lotus, Balance Essential Moisturiser, Ošciem Fine Fragrance of Flowers, and Glastonbury O Cologne.

Hi Fragrant Earth Fans! This weekend, I tried three amazing Fragrant Earth products; Olivos Ottoman Bath Soap Lotus, Balance: Essential Moisturiser, and Ošciem Fine Fragrance of Flowers. My husband also tried Glastonbury ‘O’ Cologne.
The Olivos Ottoman Bath Soap is a beauty soap which comes in beautiful packaging, which makes it a perfect gift. The lotus scent is gorgeous. The idea of a beauty soap hasn’t been in fashion for a while, but Fragrant Earth are bringing it back with these soaps made of 100% high quality olive oil, which moisturises the skin. I used it on my face and body, and it left my skin feeling soft, and smelling lovely. 
The Balance: Essential Moisturiser smells amazing! So zesty and lemony! This product is 89% Organic, and controls sebum, restores the skin’s natural barrier, and balances the skin. I found that it left my skin soft and smooth, but not greasy or oily, and the uplifting lemon scent lasted for ages.
Finally, I tried Ošciem Fine Fragrance of Flowers. This perfume smells so beautifully floral, like a spring breeze, and went well with the soap that I had used, thanks to the middle note of White Lotus. 
My husband really liked the Glastonbury ‘O’ Cologne. He enjoyed the zesty notes of Lemon, Orange, and Bergamot with Rosemary and the exquisite scent of Neroli, and found it very refreshing.

Soothe Winter Hands


Hi Fragrant Earth fans! I hope you are all having a magical winter. But, if like me, you suffer from dry hands in the colder months, you need one of our nourishing, natural hand creams.
The reason for cracked, peeling and extremely dry hands is lack of moisture. During winter, the humidity drops outside, and inside our homes, it is even dryer, thanks to central heating. Frequent handwashing to avoid colds and flu can make things even worse, washing away the skin’s natural oils. Simply drinking extra water won’t fix the problem. Hand cream must be applied directly to the skin to prevent moisture from evaporating. If you moisturise regularly, you can prevent dryness before it starts.
If you love lavender, why not try our Somerset Lavender Hand Cream

Lavender has a super relaxing scent, and can treat many skin problems. It is a natural, healing essential oil, and will soothe and repair your dry hands. It comes in a handy handbag size, so you can heal chapped hands on the go.
We also have a hand cream which comes from Argan & Goats, our most popular line. It is made of goats’ milk, and Moroccan Argan oil. Goats’ milk is full of super moisturising fatty acids which have a unique PH, similar to our own, making them easily absorbed by the skin. It also contains skin minerals like Selenium, lactic acid (which hydrates and brightens), and Vitamin A which is the most important vitamin for skin. Argan oil is a precious beauty oil, used from ancient times to give beautiful, healthy skin and hair.

 It is rich in Vitamin A, and Vitamin E. It is also packed with antioxidants, and omega 6 fatty acids. It absorbs easily, and does not leave a greasy residue. Our Argan & Goats Hand Cream  will work wonders for dry and damaged hands. It will nourish and increase the elasticity of your skin, and reduce aging. The eco-friendly, yet beautiful and sophisticated gold blocked cartons will add a touch of glamour to your life!
Finally, for all the guys out there, we have our amazing For Him Hand Cream.  It is 20% Shea butter, and intensely moisturising, regenerating and soothing for irritated hands. Shea butter is a skin miracle worker thanks to the vitamins A, E, and F, and the fatty acids that are found in it. It heals dry skin and protects the natural oils found in the hands.

You will find these three wonderful hand healing creams, as well as many other hand creams and moisturisers in store, and online.
So why not pick up one today, and banish dry winter hands?
I’ll post more updates soon. In the meantime, happy shopping!

Ancient Egyptian Beauty

"Isis" by local creator of sacred art, Nic Phillips

Happy Monday Fragrant Earth Fans! Today, I've been thinking about Ancient Egypt.

In Ancient Egypt, fragrance was a way of life. Did you Know, the Ka, (the second body that survived death) was nourished with fragrance? The first thieves to break into tombs stole perfume, not gold! Or that Ancient Egyptians went to a perfume shop the way that we meet friends for a coffee? Nefertum, son of Ptah and Sekhmet, was the God of Perfume and Incense. 

"Bastet" by local visionary artist,  Laura Daligan.

 The scared Blue Lotus was His symbol. Blue Lotus is a natural aphrodisiac, a general remedy for illness, an anti-aging treatment, a cure for headaches, a memory enhancer, and a mood-booster. Why not contact Aeon Love Boutique and ask about buying some of her Blue Lotus tincture? It gives you a warm feeling of well being, and comes in a bottle decorated with beautiful artwork. Or, if you would rather bring the beautiful smell of the lotus into your life, try Osciem Fine Fragrance of Flowers. It has middle notes of White Lotus, and smells divine. 

      Ancient Egyptian women used to mix milk and honey to make a moisturising facial mask that hydrated their skin, and smelled sweet. You can do the same today with our gorgeous Honey Face Mask. It repairs and cleanses your skin, leaving it radiant. 

 If your hair or skin is dry, why not try some Egyptian Magic? This Ancient Egyptian magical cream is a multi-tasking beauty miracle that is allegedly loved by celebrities such as Kate Hudson and Madonna. It can be used to heal eczma and dry skin, blemishes, chapped lips, insect bites, dry hair, sunburn, stretch marks, and signs of aging. It melts into skin, leaving it soft and smooth. 
The Ancient Egyptians also loved bath salts. They are naturally healing, and replenish the minerals that skin looses throughout the day. If you have skin problems, acne, recurrent infections, insect bites, female problems, arthritis, rheumatism, or just want a cleansing and health building bath experience, look no further than our Bath Salts.

They are healthy and natural, and contain healing minerals from deep underground. They also contain fruit, petals and herbs, which add to the relaxing pleasure of the bath, and can sometimes offer additional healing benefits. Our bath salts come from the oldest salt mine in Europe, Wieliczka in Poland. The traces of the first plant in which salt was manufactured there dates to the Middle Neolithic period (3,500 BC). The salt mine has been operating since Mediaeval times, and there is a world renounced treatment centre for lung conditions there. The vapor released by salty water is healing for respiratory conditions.
 Cleopatra was famous for taking milk baths. The lactic acid exfoliated and rejuvenated her skin.  If you want to try an  Ancient Egyptian bath at home, check out our Bee and Honey Bath Milk which contains Mineral salts, cow and goat Milk and proteins, and beahive treasures Propolis and Pollen to soften and cleanse your skin, and leave you smelling sweet.  

Finally, take a trip down the Mystic Nile  from the comfort of your bathroom with our amazing soap, which contains aqua notes, and smells wonderful

 Have a magical beautiful time! From Annabelle
