This is my first post in a series all about gorgeous, independent businesses. With Christmas just around the corner, now is the time to support smaller businesses and not buy all your gifts from big chain companies. Buying from independent businesses can make your gifts special and usually unique.
The first business I’d like to introduce you to is Amy’s Organics & Naturals. This is a small family run business with excellent and personalised customer service. They use only recyclable or compostable packaging and sell organic and natural products. Amy herself is very approachable and knowledgeable about the products she sells. She has trawled through thousands of products to carefully select appropriate and affordable ones for her online shop. To find out more about Amy and the business, click here.
My Purchases from Amy’s Organics and Naturals
Natural Deodorant M/F by Faith in Nature ~ £3.95
For me, deodorant has become an expensive game. I’ve never really found one that I like – either because of the scent, consistency or the way it makes my armpits feel. I always read horror stories in the media about the awful things deodorant can do to your body. With all of this in mind, I was keen to try a natural but effective deodorant. I have heard only brilliant things about crystal sticks and decided to finally bite the bullet and buy one from Amy. I must say, after using it for a few days, I am extremely impressed with this product. It doesn’t have a scent, it doesn’t feel sticky, I have no odour or sweat issues and my armpits don’t feel irritated. It’s an all-rounder! I highly recommend this – give it a go, you won’t be disappointed! Buy yours here.
Shampoo Bar – Lavender, Tea Tree & Castor Oil by Friendly ~ £2.45
This shampoo bar smells gorgeous! It is also vegan. It can be used on all hair types and lengths and left my hair with a beautiful shine. This soap will last as long as three conventional bottles of shampoo! It will make a unique gift or stocking filler. Buy yours here.
Organic Body Wash by Bentley Organic ~ £3.50
I purchased this body wash in Olive, Tea Tree & Eucalyptus which is for deep cleansing. You can also buy Lemon, Grapefruit & seaweed for detoxifying and Lavender, Aloe Vera & Jojoba for Calming and Moisturising. The bottles contain 250ml of body wash and smell divine! Buy yours here.
I will posting again in the next few days about Amy’s Organics & Naturals as I have some baby products to review. So keep an eye out for that.
Make sure you support brilliant independent businesses like Amy’s this Christmas.
