Buff & Butter Essential Oils

I am fascinated by the healing properties of flowers, herbs and spices and I’ve always loved experimenting with essential oils to make up my own massage and bath oils, as well as simply using them in my oil burner to fragrance my home with their beautiful scents.

Buff & Butter very kindly offered me the chance to try five of their essential oils from their huge range and to say I was spoilt for choice was an understatement! After much deliberation I finally selected Patchouli, Rose Geranium, Lavender, Ylang-ylang and Clary Sage*. Each of these oils has a lovely strong aroma which is a good indication of the quality and they are housed in dark glass bottles that prevent UV from causing the oils to degrade.

Each oil has a distinct use and quality that I will detail below.

Scentered Stress Less Therapy Balm

As a fan of aromatherapy, which she used to keep herself balanced whilst juggling work and home life, Lara Morgan was frustrated by the lack of practical aromatherapy products on the market. Fed up of leaking bottles and greasy, oil-based formulations Lara embarked on creating a range of multi-tasking, easy-to-use and truly portable products and together with business partner Fay Pottinger Scentered was born.

From personal experience Lara knows too well the pressures placed on women today, with stress levels at a high, so with their Stop. Inhale. Reset. ritual at the heart of each Scentered product you are encouraged to take a moment for yourself, breathe deeply and reset your mood, transforming the way you feel. One of their many targeted aromatherapy products is the fabulous Stress Less Therapy Balm, which I am sharing with you today.

Maddi Alexander Serene Pillow Spray

This time of year can be so stressful; the kids are back at school, the weather turns colder and wetter, colds and flu-bugs are rife and Christmas is rapidly approaching. It’s no wonder that our sleep often suffers, as we toss and turn worrying about Parents Evening or how we’re going to cope cooking Christmas Dinner for twelve!

Most of the time I sleep like Rip Van Winkle but every few months a sudden bout of insomnia hits – usually when I’m going through a busy and stressful period at home – and when my sleep is disrupted I turn to aromatherapy. I’m a particular fan of fragranced sprays as they’re so effective and easy to use, and I also prefer the natural approach, rather than relying on pharmaceuticals which may or may not be harmful in the longterm. One of my favourite products, since being introduced to it via The Libbie Club, is the Maddi Alexander Serene Pillow Spray (100ml, RRP £14)*, which no matter what my worry is never fails to invoke a peaceful night’s sleep.

Tisserand Perfume Roll-Ons

As soon as the hotter months approach I love to switch my perfumes for ones that are more natural and therefore kinder to my skin. Alcohol, the main ingredient in eau de toilette and eau de parfum, is a photosensitive substance and as well as being very drying can cause skin reactions – redness, swelling and brown spots – that may well cause permanent skin damage.
