Island scented

There’s something about the Isle of Wight’s raw, natural beauty that’s impossible to bottle. However, Duxmore Botanics’ expert Char has given it a pretty good go with this fresh-smelling blend of 13 essential oils, inspired by “the heat of the sand, the cool sea breeze, the stillness of the water and the sound as the waves gently wash into shore”. And we love it.
