During winter, we feel oneness and connection through ancient traditions and rituals. Our ancestry surrounds us. Nature shows us to look within, rest, and hibernate but also celebrate the magic part of life. Snow glistens like little diamonds, the evergreens providing us with hope, cold starry nights and cosy family gatherings. We come together around the fire and share our stories. Let’s celebrate this special time with delicious scents.
This winter, the scents are intense, gourmand, warm and earthy.

Calendula herb is the number one for any skin problem. Any complexion will benefit from this herb.
Rose hydrosol is the queen of flowers. The floral, delicate scent is an extra treat for your guests.
If you desire an extra rich nourishment, you can always add a little amount of almond oil.
Watch your guests flaunt when they leave your ritual with their new, regal glow.
