Bespoke the soap

03 May 2017

The inventing room

 

We’ve been packaging up mini soaps for a little boutique guest house’s lovely guests this week. Every now and again we produce bespoke orders- whether it’s Wedding favours or in this case a boutique guest house.

 

Our handcreams will be on sale in the breakfast room, along with a few of our other products and guests get to feel the delight of some handmade goats milk soap in their rooms.

Making items to order is always interesting for us and often we discover new ways of working and folk who discover our little brand this way.

 

Honey Sunsets & Terracotta Tiles

07 Oct 2016

Travels and Tours | The inventing room | Honey

We are busy experimenting with all things Honey at the moment along with dreaming of the hot summer sunsets and terracotta tiles.

Honey is nature's original wonderbalm. On it’s own it helps protect against and fight infections in wounds and if there is nothing else around when you have a cut or a graze, salt water washes and a dab of honey goes a long way to protecting your skin. Many swear by its use as a cough soother and to avoid seasonal hayfever too.

 

Honey has antifungal, antibacterial & antioxidant properties and was traditionally used as a topical antibiotic before the discovery of penicillin.

For now, we are happy dabbling away with our jars of liquid gold and can’t wait to see what we end up with. Experimenting with the potions is one of our favourite parts of the process of developing products - it’s the stuff of stories at that stage - a pinch of this, a dash of that and see what you end up with…we will keep you posted!
