Skin Care with a Flourish

This week we have introduced a new range of hand made organic toiletries from a small Irish company called Flourish Organics.

Geraldine & Klaus Woessner work from their home nestled in the Kerry Mountains outside Killarney. They have  developed a lovely new range of skin care products using only natural ingredients, including herbs from their own organic garden and natural spring water.

We have a Vitamin E Face Cream, a Cleanser, Peppermint Foot Lotion – great for softening hard skin, a Calendula Lotion for dry, itchy skin and a moisturising Hemp and Macadamia Cream for dry skin.  We have testers in store so feel free to drop in & give them a try.

Cleaning Products with Attitude

Sick of breathing in fumes every time you clean the shower? Worried about the cocktail of chemicals you’re flushing down the sink when you’re cleaning the kitchen? Don’t think that eco cleaning products actually work?

If you answered yes, you may be interested in  Attitude, the world’s first and only line of eco-certified and carbon neutral household cleaning products. This Canadian company aims to promote responsible consumption by offering high performing products that minimize impacts on health and the environment.

We have been using these products at home for the last few months while we decided whether or not to stock them & have been really impressed.  We’ve now introduced the first four products in the range – Multi Surface Cleaner, Daily Shower Cleaner, Mould & Mildew Remover and Window & Mirror Cleaner.  Try them & let us know what you think.

Grumpy Mule Coffees

Always on the lookout for the unusual, we have just added two new ground coffees to our range.  Grumpy Mule specialise in distinctive Organic & Fair Trade coffees from around the world.

Gayo Highlands is a full bodied, chocolaty after dinner coffee from the highlands of Takengon in Sumatra .

My personal favourite is the Cafe Femenino from Bolivia – a rich breakfast coffee with a caramel finish. The Cafe Femenino name comes from the fact that this coffee is produced by a women’s co-operative in the tropical Yungas region.  Organic, fair trade & a women’s co-operative? – coffee doesn’t come much more right on that this – good job it tastes so good!
