Autumn & Winter Top Picks
Wheatbags, Fikkerts Foam Bath, Sock Foot Scrub and Salve, and Gauntlet are our top picks for Autumn/Winter
Personally, this is my favourite time of year, enticed by the cosy jumpers, warm scarves, crisp leaves and hot chocolate by the fire at night, I believe Autumn is hard to hate. Just a shame the sun doesn’t stay around long enough for us to fully enjoy the magic of autumn. And who can resist that winter wonderland picture postcard experiance.
Here at The Old Apothecary Shop we have an array of products that truly are valued in these colder months. Whether its the warmth of lavender wheatbag or the welcoming fragrance from a candle, we have something for everyone.
To help you in your search I have complied a short but not exhaustive list of the perfect autumnal products that you do not want to miss.
Lavender Wheat Bags
Lavender wheat bags come into their own as the colder months draw in. Whether its for aches and pains or a simple source of warm comfort, Lavender Wheat bags are the perfect warming treat. Wheat bags have come a long way since I was younger. A peculiar burning smell as the Wheat Bags slowly rotates in the microwave is what comes to mind when I think of Wheat bags. However, with these Lavender Wheat Bags there is no more strange smell, having been replaced by the beautiful, calming and relaxing aroma of the lavender. With a variety of designs to choose from, these cosy and comforting Wheat bags are a must this autumn/winter.
Fikkerts Foam Bath
In my mind, there is nothing more relaxing than a bath. Especially in the colder months. What’s more, a bath is not a good bath without a few fragrant bubbles. For that we suggests Fikkerts Foam Bath. Available in Amber, Green Tea, Jasmine, Lavender, Bluebell and Rose there is bound to be one for you. These Foam Bath’s contain no artificial fragrances, instead using essential oils and plant oils to produce
each of the beautiful fragrances. Made without parabens and SLS, they are gentle to the skin but without compromising on the scent. Ultra relaxing and perfect for a quick dip or long soak on cold autumn evening.
Gauntlet Hand Salve
As magic as autumn is, there are a few downsides to it. Dry and chapped hands are one of them. Whether you spent lots of time out in the cold, have used some very drying hand sanitizers, or you simply have dry skin, Gauntlet Hand Salve will save the day. Made in Wales, this 100% natural product consists of a blend of Shea Butter, Avocado Oil, Calendula Oil and Rosemary Essential Oil. It is incredibly moisturising, helping to enhance the skins natural barrier. Rosemary oil provides antiseptic properties, whilst Calendula oil adds healing qualities. This product is also super concentrated, with no added water, which means a little bit will go a long way.
And now we have a new product launching in 2022 – The Gauntlet Herbal Hand Scrub, now available in store and on our online shop also retailing at £10.95
