Flowers don’t just grace our planet with their beauty, they also have remarkable aromatherapeutic effects. Sticking your nose in a live blossom will give you an instant lift, but we’ve also been able to retain the benefits of sniffing real flowers by distilling their essential oils. Our limited release scent; Neroli Rose contains two beautiful florals that offer more than just a glorious scent.
Both Neroli and Rose Geranium essential oils have similar properties and are used in aromatherapy as an antidepressants, with Neroli offering the added benefit of aphrodisiac effects.

This is the perfect overcast day activity to when you feel like spring is taking forever to get here!
