Our skincare products start life in the lavender fields we see from our windows.
Benefits of lavender
Lavender is a most versatile plant. Research shows it is both calming and revitalising. The scent of it helps to reduce stress and this lavender also has antimicrobial healing properties effective in the treatment of small wounds, burns and insect bites.
How we make our products
Our products are made by hand with care. The product formulations are unique to us and have been created by our creams designer Helen Lowe, a leading artisan in the development of creams. She makes our products in her north Wales studio overlooking the Atlantic and sends them to our farm where we bottle and package them in our workshop. Helen’s focus is on ingredients that are beneficial – there are no artificial colours or perfumes in our products. We use naturally derived ingredients and none of our products are tested on animals.
Developing new products
We know that there are many more skincare products and objects of desire we can make with our lavender and we are exploring some of these. We also work with other essential oils. We have just developed three new bespoke products for ACE HOTEL in Shoreditch: two balms called AWAKE (with an essential oil blend of peppermint, eucalyptus and lemongrass to help sharpen the senses, ease tension headaches, hangovers, exhaustion, congestion and poor circulation) & CALM (with an essential oil blend of lavender, chamomile and sandalwood) is relaxing. FARMERS’ SALT SOAK for ACE HOTEL is made with softening Welsh sea salt and an essential oil combination of rosemary, peppermint, lemongrass, bergamot, and eucalyptus to help sharpen memory and focus. The profusion of scents also works as a decongestant. At the moment these three newcomers are only available through ACE in Shoreditch http://www.acehotel.com/london
