Lola’s Apothecary


Amongst the hustle and bustle of city life, The Amazing Blog finds it necessary to make time for relaxation, whether it’s watching a marathon of our favourite box sets or drawing a warm bath. Lola’s Apothecary helped us unwind with their Delicate Romance Balancing Bath & Shower Oil and Tranquil Isle Bath Salt. Lola’s Apothecary is a UK and Devon based company who take a holistic approach to wellness and spa, with products which are grounded in nature. We found ourselves reaching nirvana with their intoxicating fragrances. All the handmade products are created with the intent to enrich your self-care rituals.

The award-winning Delicate Romance Balancing Bath & Shower Oil is composed of plant essences that emit a romantic fragrance of flowers and spices. The scent is warm and inviting and immediately commands the body to relax. It only takes a few drops to feel the effects of instant gratification. The glass bottle is simple, yet elegant and inside has a selection of adorable floating rosebuds. You can also reap the benefits of the aromatherapy by rubbing a few drops onto your décolletage before slipping into the bath for a soak. The source of vitamin E treats sensitive skin. Beta Carotene stimulates cell turnover with its high level of omega 6. Other ingredients help reduce redness and inflammation and regulate hormonal health.

Similar to the bath oils, the Tranquil Isle Bath Salt is concentrated in essential oils that create a therapeutic experience. The calming smell of lavender puts your mind at ease of everyday stresses. The Himalayan Crystal Salt is one of the purest salts with traces of many minerals that are also very beneficial to health. Roman Camomile acts as an anti-inflammatory and soothing agent for sensitive skin. The Vetivert is a relaxant that aids sleep and relieves nervous tension.

To use, create a complete atmospheric experience for yourself – dimming the lights and lighting a candle. You can indulge in the pleasures of aromatherapy without leaving the comfort of your own home. As you draw the bath, drip a few drops of the oil or sprinkle the bath salts. Step into the tub and let the therapeutic smells take over. Purchase the Balancing Bath & Shower Oil 100ml here for £40 and the Tranquil Isle Bath Salts here for £50.

Purity Herbs - Hekla Volcanic Body Scrub

Even men need to relax at the end of a tough day, and here at The Amazing Blog I often find myself in desperate need of a calming bath at the end of a particularly long day. When that time comes around, I immediately reach for Purity Herbs Hekla Volcanic Body Scrub

This scrub, which contains lava from Hekla volcano, is the perfect way to scrub away the stress of the day. It works to exfoliate and remove dead skin and tough dirt. After the scrub is washed away, it leaves skin so soft and clean that it feels brand new.

Any stress I may have begun with was quickly erased once I discovered how revitalised this scrub made me feel. The scrub is far more than an exfoliator. More than removing dirt and dead skin, it contains natural essential oils such as Grapefruit peel oil, lavender oil and bergamot oil that energise. A quick scrub leaves body and mind feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

If you find yourself in need of a soak, Purity Herbs Volcanic Body Scrub can be bought here for only £27.50

Stvdio 5 - Natural Soaps

Here at The Amazing Blog, there’s is nothing we love more than relaxing in a nice hot bath with some soothing music, a glass of wine and some deliciously scented soap.  The clever people at Stvdio 5 have created some of the most gorgeous soaps we’ve ever seen, so that our baths no longer just smell delicious, they look it too. 

Each of the beautifully designed soaps is handmade with serious attention to detail to look like some of our favourite baked goods. Unlike those carb-filled treats, however, these soaps are packed full of goodness. Following the cold process method, they combine Olive, Coconut, Almond and Castor Oils instead of using any nasty chemicals. We certainly felt the benefit of this natural goodness; that horrible drying feeling given by most standard soaps was noticeably absent after this tasty looking cleanse. The formula is enriched with Kaolin and Tea Tree Oil, which are packed with antibacterial properties, as well as Aloe Vera Extract, a powerful source of Vitamin A, B1, B2, B6 and B12, Vitamin C and E. What makes these soaps extra special? They’re vegan, cruelty free, natural and, best of all, British.

They smell so good, you’ll want to eat them (but don’t!). These stunning soaps start from £3.00 and you can find them on Stvdio 5’s website.

English Rose Cosmetics Rose Bath Oil

Here at The Amazing Blog, we are in love with our new discovery, the English Rose Cosmetic’s Rose Bath Oil from English Rose Cosmetics.

This bath oil contains sunflower oil, jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, and rose absolute which makes it rich in Vitamins A, D, and E.

This heavenly oil can be used while taking a bath or is gentle enough to be applied directly to the body as a fragranced body oil that will leave the wearer with a delicious rose petal scent all day. It is the perfect finishing product for your morning routine to leave your skin feeling soft and fresh. English Rose Cosmetics is committed to working with suppliers that do not conduct tests on animals, and using naturally effective ingredients that bring benefits to you, the consumer.
