Birch sham­poo

For lus­ciously clean locks, we’re ditch­ing the chem­i­cals for a time­less birch in­fu­sion. Used for cen­turies as a hair treat­ment, this mod­ern-day re­vival by KALIflower Or­gan­ics’ con­tains an zingy mix of birch-in­fused spring wa­ter with sweet cit­rus and cedar­wood es­sen­tial oils, cre­at­ing a nat­u­ral, daily sham­poo that will leave your hair feel­ing soft and shiny.

Cedar in­cense sticks

Scented with cedar, which is known for its abil­ity to aid re­lax­ation and con­tem­pla­tion, these lux­u­ri­ous in­cense sticks from Sa­cred Ele­phant will fill your home with har­mo­nious fra­grance. They’re blended and rolled by hand us­ing tra­di­tional meth­ods, in­cor­po­rat­ing only the best nat­u­ral es­sen­tial oils that are al­ways eth­i­cally sourced and never tested on an­i­mals.

Esta Aroma Di user

Cre­at­ing a fine aro­mather­apy-in­fused mist, this bam­boo Esta Aroma Dif­fuser from Neal’s Yard can be used to help coun­ter­act some of the dry­ness cre­ated by mod­ern cen­tral heat­ing sys­tems in our homes and work­places. Just add some wa­ter and a few drops of your favourite mood-lift­ing es­sen­tial oils or wood-based blends for a nat­u­ral pick-me-up.

Sa­cred Place can­dle

One of the lesser-known es­sen­tial oils, ho wood has a sweet, woody and slightly flo­ral aroma, which is rem­i­nis­cent of rose­wood and val­ued for its calm­ing qual­i­ties. Ink and Ocean Botan­i­cal’s hand-poured Sa­cred Place can­dle com­bines this sooth­ing oil with re­fresh­ing ylang ylang, berg­amot and clary sage for a med­i­ta­tive and up­lift­ing ef­fect when lit.

dõTerra oils

Like other es­sen­tial oils, wood-based oils can be used for a wide range of ap­pli­ca­tions, in­clud­ing mas­sage, skin­care and fra­grance. US-based com­pany dõTerra of­fers a su­perb range of woody com­bi­na­tions, from cy­press and Dou­glas fir to cedar and san­dal­wood, plus de­tails on their in­di­vid­ual ben­e­fits and their sug­gested us­age.

Rose­wood bath melts

Hand­made by Brighton-based aro­mather­a­pist Corinne Tay­lor, these or­ganic rose­wood and berg­amot bath melts are cre­ated from a nour­ish­ing blend of shea and co­coa but­ters, and then fin­ished with re­lax­ing and fra­grant es­sen­tial oils for a beau­ti­ful, nat­u­ral aroma. Pop a couple into a warm run­ning bath and soak away the stresses of the day.
