I first discovered the beautiful Magic Organic Apothecary whilst snooping in the bathroom of my friend Charlotte. With a ladder shelf filled with ornate bottles, sparkly Catbird candles and jars brimming with goodies it was the illustrated cardboard, coloured glass and pipettes of MOA that caught my attention (with me swiftly howling ‘how?! Have I never discovered this before)- trust me, Miss Jacklin is on the pulse.
Having been founded in the U.K and all products produced in England, it was no longer than the train journey home before I started sweeping products into my online basket and placing a next day order in. With my order consisting of their iconic Green Balm, Facial Oil and Green Bath Potion, I was excited to introduce some new wonder products in to my routine, and thought I’d pop together a post of first impressions for anyone that may be interested.
This was the product that I’d heard people wax lyrical about. Peppered with fennel and oozing a heady peppermint herbal scent- this is the perfect remedy for achy joints, a tired head or even a lurking winters cold, and let me tell you- there’s nothing more calming than popping a couple of capfuls of this into a hot bath. As well as being de-stressing, it leaves you feeling completely soft and calm- which for a power duo of essential oils ain’t bad for a quick soak.
Now, this gal is all for a multi purpose balm. Give me something for my lips, dry, red skin and even a quick cleanse and I’m yours- and this balm does it all. Although I’ve primarily used it as a bedside quick lip fix, I know it’ll come in hugely handy for any red-nosed colds i’m struck down with, nursing itchy skin and even bites come the summer- as well as being the perfect first cleanse travel companion.
Although this isn’t something I’ve used much since purchasing, the times I have used it I’ve loved it. I’m yet to properly introduce it into my routine (when you got a good thing going and all that…), but I did notice it being a quick drying, non-irritating oil which goes beautifully under moisturiser- and I’m excited to properly give it a whirl.
