Lockdown, Heidrun and our first dedicated range

The last month and a half has been hard on everyone, its difficult times… uncertain times… with no time scale.

As a small business we were extremely concerned when the lockdown came into force, we were still in our first year.. looking forward to getting a tourist season boost, building a growing regular local and uk customer base which we feared may crumble if people couldnt get to our shop…! HOWEVER… thank goodness for the internet!

As much as I personally like to moan and complain about the internet, the time and money invested early on with Heidrun in building a website and reguarly keeping our social media updated has allowed us to offer a service to our customers who in lockdown circumstances cant reach us. We are so grateful that people are choosing to shop with us through these means.

Our products are also proving to be greatly beneficial in aiding the skin repair after the damage caused by chemical filled antibacterial soaps and sanitizers that are being used, we really appreciate hearing the kind words and comments about our products and we are glad to be able to provide some relief.

So with the belief shown in us, we decided that we should use this time to grow our company, grow our products..introduce new fragrances and colours, play about..experiment with new ideas and invest! Give you guys a wider variety of greatly beneficial products that are still maintaining our companies ethical approach but also greating new fun and exciting experiences.

The Bath time products so far and the Deals packages offered have proven to be greatly popular, infact sometimes its difficult to keep up with the demand for bath bombs but aslong as you are still ordering we will just add an hour in the workshop!

‘Gilded Lust’ ‘Rose Passion’

Two ranges shortly to be introduced at Heidrun… Consisting initially of Luxury Candles, Luxury Bath bombs and something for the face (thats all im saying on that one)… notching some of our products up a gear with the addition of further fantastic ingriedients and fragrances.

Natural Hand Sanitiser?.. you decide? Handmade Goats Milk & Blackcurrant Seed Oil Soap with Neem Oil.

With the current situation regarding the spread of Corona Virus many of us have taken to washing our hands repeatedly throughout the day as well as applying hand sanitisers at every opportunity. This is all very well except many of the products being used contain harsh ingredients that are known to dry and damage the skin. The question is how can we ensure we keep our hands clean and our skin protected using nature?

Goats milk Soap has a variety of benefits and has been used for centuries. Goats Milk is effective for treating acne and skin infections, it also has antimicrobial properties that delays the growth of pathogenic organisms. This is explained in the link I found below.

http://jbas.juw.edu.pk/index.php/JBAS/article/view/77

Our Goats Milk & Blackcurrant seed Oil Soap is a fantastic un-fragranced everyday soap, it is gentle on all types of skin and can also be used on the face. We have high customer feedback that suggests that this soap helps relieve the symptoms of Eczema and Psoriasis. This soap also contains Neem Oil which is well know for its Anti bacterial properties.

‘A 2019 study examined the antibacterial properties of cosmetic products containing neem compounds. The authors found that soaps containing extracts of neem leaf or neem bark prevented the growth of several strains of bacteria’

With this being said we cannot make any medical claims for our soaps as they are not tested for this purpose, however the facts about the ingredients cannot be ignored.
