I recently wrote about a store opening event that I attended at Neal's Yard Remedies, and I was lucky enough to get the chance to try out some of their products. Here is a short overview of each product.

Wild Rose Beauty Balm (10 year anniversary packaging)
I was really excited when I found out I got to test out the Rose Beauty Balm. The 10 Year anniversary packaging is beautiful, and I love the scent. This was my first time trying a cleansing balm, and I am liking it so far. Some of the ingredients included are rosehip, jojoba, shea butter, geranium, rosemary, frankincense, and patchouli. 

Create Your Own Custom Massage Oil (essential oils: grapefruit, lavender, rose, cedarwood)
Creating my own massage oil and body wash was such a fun experience. For the massage oil there is a base oil that you use, and from their you choose some essential oils to include. There was an array of top notes, middle notes, and base notes to choose from. I picked grapefruit as my top note, lavender and rose as middle notes, and cedar wood as my base. I wanted the lavender to be the most noticeable scent, so I added a few extra drops of the lavender oil. I really love the scent that this combination produced.

Create Your Own Hair and Body Wash (essential oils: grapefruit, lavender, rose, cedarwood)
Creating my own body wash was a similar process. There was a unsented body wash to start with, and then I picked and added some essential oils. I used the same combination for the body wash and massage oil. As before I added a few extra drops of the lavender oil so that this would be the predominant scent. 

Summer Garden Tea (Lavender, spearmint, rose, elderberry)
I love tea almost as much as I love coffee, and I especially love herbal teas. I love making a cup of tea in the evening, and the Summer Garden Tea is the perfect evening tea. I think this tea would also be great iced. 

Have you tried Neal's Yard Remedies? Have you tried a cleansing balm?

  1. Wow, you picked some lovely items! So cool that they have customizable items. And the cleansing balm sounds great! xo

  2. The summer garden tea sounds lovely. Although summer seems to be travelling on, I'll always reserve time for teas that remind me of summertime. I hope you had a beautiful Summer Ashley, it's been a long time since we've seen each other! Let's change that xo

  3. Oh my goodness, it all looks amazing. I have wanted to try Neal's Yard Remedies for so long, but haven't really had the chance yet! Being able to create your own products is really awesome.
