The calm before the pre-Christmas planning


This photo was only taken a few weeks ago - but seems like longer!

I always take a relaxing break in August - the online & Etsy shops were closed, social media was turned off and no markets were booked for a relaxing two weeks.

I visited the Eden Project - always a huge source of inspiration, Charlestown and my favourite place and regular holiday town, St Ives. I joined a beach yoga class, listened to audio book to the sound of waves and swam in the sea every day - bliss.

Now I'm back at home and busy making batches of natural soaps, mixing huge bowls of aromatherapy bath soak, pouring candles and planning a couple of new projects: 

  • a series of relaxing breathwork exercises to enhance the College Green botanical facial steams
  • new College Green gift boxes 
  • testing new aromatherapy reed diffusers. They're not quire ready yet but hoping they will be in time for Christmas markets
