A Quick “how to” for Bees Wax Wraps Bees Wax Wraps have become part of my day to day life, as silly as that sounds. I have a nice little collection now that are pretty much constantly in use and I know to how to use them and how to clean them. What I forget is that others are still testing the water with them and therefore have a lot of questions – I’m hoping to answer some of those here. When I’m out doing fairs and markets, the wax wraps usually receive the most attention – a lot is curiosity but others already have some at home and are raving to their friends and family about how good they are. Here are some of the more common questions I’m asked: How do they work? Well, that’s quite straight forward. When you get a new wrap you should scrunch it…

I wanted to share a little bit about Loofco – the company who supply the sponge, scourer and dishwashing alternatives that I sell. LoofCo products are inspired by cleaning methods that have been tried and tested over generations. Using this knowledge, they are skilfully created in Sri Lanka and Egypt where all farmers and production workers are treated fairly with wages and benefits. LoofCo products are made with sustainable plant fibres of loofah plant and coconut. Coconut coir is the naturally bacteria resistant, fibrous material found between the hard, internal shell and the outer brown coconut husk. LoofCo uses coir fibre that is a by-product of coconut food and oil production and might otherwise be burnt. They twist coconut coir fibre around a 100% recyclable, galvanised rust-proof metal core and add a metal hanging loop for easy use and draining. Coconut coir fibres remains stiff when wet, whilst also holding…

Shampoo Bar Advice A lot of people are making the switch from plastic bottles filled with chemicals to natural shampoo bars but, understandably, are having a few hiccups (and a lot of questions) along the way. I wanted to share some great advice, some from my suppliers, other bits are from my own personal experience. Hopefully the following will help you make the transition to shampoo bars a bit easier. So how is a shampoo bar better than shampoo in a bottle? Shampoo bars are more concentrated. It means that it lasts longer than bottled ones! One shampoo bar goes a long way, unlike those in plastic bottles. Less waste. One shampoo bar is equivalent to two to three plastic bottles. No chemicals – so not only are you avoiding washing chemicals down the drain – you’re also keeping them away from your hair and body so they aren’t absorbed…
