Happy Birthday Neal's Yard Remedies Islington!


During my stay in London, I was lucky to be invited to Neal's Yard Remedies Islington birthday party! That's it,  has been NYR on Islington's Upper Street for 5 years!

To celebrate, we were offered some treats made from their new Superfood range, (goji berries dark chocolate barks). Healthy and scrumptious, what's not to love?

I discovered some new favourites scents!
During the party, we did a blind sniffing test. That's when I discovered that I liked frankincense and jasmine essential oils! Without the blind test, I would have never geared towards those scents at all!

Create your own!
With our new favourite oils, we then proceed to create a body product of our choice, using the "Create your own" line.

Anyone can pop into a NYR store (or online) and make their own bespoke products as well. All you have to do is take a base for the product you wan to make (shower gel, massage oil, body lotion, scrub, etc) and add a few of their essential oils, herbal infusions or flower remedies. I decided to make a lime and jasmine massage oil. I don't even have anyone to massage me, but that didn't stop me! Pff!

The evening was really enjoyable and I was impressed at how knowledgeable everyone at Neal's Yard were.

A complete list of the Create your Own range can be found on their website.
Neal's Yard Remedies' Islington store is located on 295 Upper Street (Angel Tube station)

Happy birthday!
