These long summer days are soaked in sunlight. I’ve harvested my Roman chamomile first time this year, and it’s now fully dried, stored away in a mason jar, to be opened later in the year. So many other herbs are also ripe for the picking: the air is sweet and fragrant above my patch of peppermint. I’ll dry it for tea and to use in soap and skincare for Ravenscourt Apothecary one of these days, soon. It delights me to be able to store some of that summer lavishness.
I find it that creativity comes effortlessly during this golden season. A couple of new, gentle soaps were added to our line recently: Gunpowder Green Teasoap, gentle Oats & Rosehips face scrub, and Purity cleanser. You have the choice of choosing the scent – lavender, clary sage or tingly tee tree – and it makes your skin so, so soft. More new products are coming up: that elusive white floral perfume, Annabel Lee, will launch in August, and we’re working on our first completely organic facial serum, to be launched around the same time.
I’m taking a little break and going to be away from the studio on July 26th. Orders placed through the main shop and Etsy will be processed when I return on August 9th.

Your orders will be on their way to you as soon as possible.
To sweeten the deal while I am away, here’s a few good things:
