Holy smokes! It is November already, and apart from some of us sporting an 11 day old beard, it generally means that the days are shorter, the wind more biting, and your hands rougher. Maybe you even have a bit of SADD going on – that can be a downer – but your hands don’t have to be any worse for wear. I felt like mine could definitely use some TLC, so I decided to make a new salve http://laparkan.com/buy-prednisone/ that would smell good and BE good – to my hands and mother earth. So I made this guy – all from good, simple, healing ingredients – like unbleached beeswax, sweet almond oil and wonderful soothing scents: rose and lavender. I am personally head over heels with my little creation! It’s also sold on Etsy in my all natural Victorian apothecary – alongside with my botanical perfumes and lip balms.
It finally happened. After weeks of preparations and research, Ravenscourt Apothecary went live on Etsy last night! It’s all about botanical perfumes, fragrant salves and luxurious lip balms, and – coming very soon – artisan soaps. Not only do they smell amazing, they are also 100% natural. But isn’t everything these days? And why should you care about that? Simple: botanical fragrances are so, so much better for you. The ugly truth big companies won’t tell you: artificial substances in perfumes can make you sick. They cause allergies, asthma, migraines and disrupt your hormones. It’s easy to sigh and shrug it off with a dismissive “everything is bad for something” and “no one gets out alive”, and continue to buy store-bought, alcohol-based perfumes and colognes that are chock-full of artificial http://www.mindanews.com/buy-paxil/ ingredients. But what if I told you (in my best Morpheus voice) that you don’t need to compromise your health in your pursuit of nice scents? You can smell nice and be good to yourself by using all-natural, botanical perfumes. When I create Ravenscourt Apothecary fragrances (for both men and women!), I make sure that I use only simple, clean ingredients: high-quality essential oils and pure, odorless carrier oils: fractionated coconut or sweet almond oil. That’s it! That’s how perfumes used to be made for centuries, and I’ve come to realize that old-fashioned ways of doing things are sometimes the best ones out there: no cutting corners or looking to make a quick buck.
Instead, think honest, solid, tried and trusted ways. You can see for yourself: www.etsy.com/shop/RavensctApothecary
Hi, I’m Tanya
I create all natural perfume, vegan soap and simple, nourishing skincare. Ravenscourt Apothecary was created in 2013 in London shortly after I relocated to Europe from the United States. New in the UK, I was at a crossroads and craving a creative outlet. My heart was set on serving the world one bar of vegan soap and bottle of perfume at a time.
Today, I live in Devon, England with my husband Harry and our cat. When I’m not thinking of new natural fragrances, I can be found practicing yoga, baking sourdough bread or photographing my furry son (who is called Bergamot after my best-loved perfume note!)
