sea salt hair

hey gypsy chic…… its beach time so forget the hot tongs and put your hair up in loose buns and messy braids – loose styles cause less tension on the hair and provide less surface area exposure to the sun.

Sea salt sprays are perfect for beach hair, or make your own with made with 1 tsp sea salt and 1 tsp coconut oil, mixed with water in a small spray bottle. Add a few drops of sandalwood essential oil.


We like: O & M Surf Bomb and Davines This is a Sea Salt Spray


pomanders ….

The pomander, a clove-studded fruit, is a traditional Christmas ornament and New Year’s gift. The word pomander comes from French pomme(which means apple) Apples and oranges were filled with spices and herbal mixtures to ward off disease & were also a token of prosperity and good luck which became the custom in the 17th century.

Many of us will remember an orange in the toe of our Christmas stocking and thinking it was in there to take up space, but actually the orange represented the ancient custom of giving this symbol of riches and good luck.
Dehydrated orange slices tied with twine also make wonderful Christmas garlands.

we love the idea of making natural decorations, heres another upcycle idea for the festive season…christmas recycle.jpg
