Exciting things are happening at the Apothecary. We have been busily preparing for the Festive Season; we're now well stocked with a small mountain of fragrant things and luxurious gift boxes - and we regularly trip over piles of ribbon in the office! In this newsletter we are delighted to be sharing some of our new products with you, please watch this space - we do have more shiny new things to announce soon :)
We welcomed a number of new stockists last month and will be telling you about one of our lovely new partners, My Fabulous Collection.

After weeks of slow curing, the Cream Of Roses Cleansing Bar (pictured above) is now ready to go to new homes. Our very first cold-process handmade soap is a blushing pink bar enriched with Shea Butter and Honey. Unlike commercially milled soaps, it is non-drying and will leave your skin comfortably soft and gently scented with Rose Geranium. We would love you to try it and tell us what you think.
The mini samples we give out with website orders are so cute that even MOO the hipster printing company featured us in their Inspiration Gallery! We've also received many requests to provide them as wedding favours. Furthermore, the wonderful feature rooms at our local picturesque country hotel Highbullen now include our mini gift sets in their welcome pack. Due to popular demand, we've created 2 travel size gift sets: Golden Elixir Pocket Collection (below) and Bath Oils Travel Set (below top). These are a great way to sample all our oils, also delightful as stocking fillers!

Meet us at The Apothecary Shop
We will be at The Apothecary Shop in Ledbury, Herefordshire on Saturday 22nd November. If you are in the area, please drop in to say hi and have a cup of tea courtesy of London Tea Club. There will be special offers on the day, a perfect opportunity for a spot of Christmas shopping ;)
Valley of Pheasants
Even though we are now in November, the weather has been surprisingly mild. The woods are abundant with colourful (and noisy) pheasants, and on our walks our paths are crossed by robust deer and other wildlife. Sadly, all but one of the puppies have now gone to their new homes. Tessa, the sweet little golden girl, has now joined the 'wolf pack'; she is growing up fast and already causing lots of mischief around the place. Orchard fruits and root veg are now harvested to see us through the winter months. In the kitchen, our thoughts shift to hearty roast and nourishing stew - 'tis the season for warm puddings!
