A special kind of mildness in the night air tells me that spring is almost here. In the last couple of days, daffodils shot up here and there. They are showing their yellow greenish petals, still folded away tenderly as a promise of a present to be opened. I planted this lovely little willow by a nearby brook and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the local bunnies won’t harm it while it’s vulnerable.

As the days are becoming longer once again, we’re getting closer to the wonderful rituals of celebrating the vernal equinox, Easter and Earth Day. Spring is a time for rejuvenation and refreshing, for getting rid of the old patterns that no longer serve you and introducing positive change. For us at Ravenscourt Apothecary, this spring is also time of renewal and personal growth, and we’ll be making a few appearances outside of the studio this year and participating in some craft fairs – it’s http://www.besttramadolonlinestore.com something new we haven’t done before. If you live in the South West of the UK or will be visiting, you can come say hi in person on Saturday, April 18th at the Vegan Bake Sale and Craft Fair in Exeter. We attended as guests last year and were swept off our feet by the variety of vegan pizzas, cakes and pastries, to name a few, and they were mouthwatering! I will be there with a selection of Ravenscourt Apothecary vegan products: fragrances, bathing salts, soaps and skincare.

In other news, you can now purchase solid perfume from us! Just as with oil perfumes, it never contains anything artificial or synthetic. Solid perfume is made with local beeswax, essential oils, resins and absoluts; it is currently offered in gorgeous vintage Stratton powder compacts. Think of it as a beautiful love child of vintage and  handmade! You also an choose any scent you like to fill any of the compacts.
