Last week I attended the Neal's Yard Remedies blogger store opening party. It was one of the most interesting and fun events I have been to in a while. We had the opportunity to learn a bit about essential oils and aromatherapy, and even got to make our own body wash and massage oil!
We were shown how to pick out top notes, middle notes, and base notes when combining scents, and the combination of essential oils I came up with was grapefruit, lavender, rose, and cedar wood.

I think my favourite thing about Neal's Yard Remedies is that the all the ingredients used in their products are natural, organic, and sustainably sourced. On the website it states that their vision is to bring the expertise of apothecary as well as a holistic approach to health and beauty. Their mind/body philosophy also appeals to the therapist side of me.

Have you been to the Neal's Yard Remedies location in Calgary yet, or tried out any products from Neal's Yard Remedies?

  2. Grapefruit lavender and cedar sounds like a lovely mix!

  3. Ooh, nice! I've heard such great things about this brand- cool to see it's making its way to Canada! Hopefully a Toronto store soon :)

  4. I'm really happy it came to Calgary. I love it so far. Hopefully you will get one too!

  5. If I remember it was the citrus and frankincense ones!
