Hello everybody and welcome back to our little HMOblog! Today, we are introducing the second of our BRAND NEW ranges that will be available from the 1st of December. This one is called “help me, they say exercise is good for you” range and I would like to tell you a little bit more about it:

We understand that Christmas is one of the best times of year for many reasons, the main being the ability to indulge in both food and the odd little (or big) tipple. Then, January comes, you realise that your clothes are a little tight and you launch yourselves at the stack of exercise DVD’s collecting dust on the shelves. Exercising is brilliant, don’t get me wrong, but exercising too much can end in very sore and tight muscles that will need a little bit of attention. That’s where this range comes in. We have blended lavender, lemon, juniper berry, pine and sweet marjoram together to make this wonderful range.

So, a little bit about the essential oils we have used:

Lavender:

One of the best known essential oil, it’s benefits are immense. We use this oil to calm, protect, boost your immune system and soothe muscular aches & pains. You will find Lavender in most our products as it is deeply therapeutic and beneficial to everyone.

Lemon:

Lemon has a wonderful fresh aroma, it is helpful to lift your moods and is a valuable immune booster.

Juniper Berry:

If you struggle with anxiety “burn-out”, this is the essential oil for you, juniper berry eases your emotional system and eases constant thoughts. Use our massage oil to clear excess fluid & toxins, juniper berry is excellent to help fight uneven skin tone, lumps & bumps.

Pine:

An uplifting, cleansing essential oil, Pine will clear your head and sinuses and leave a beautiful fresh aroma. By massaging our massage oil, the pine really helps to ease painful muscles and soothe nerve pathways.

Sweet Marjoram:

This is a warming, antispasmodic essential oil which helps to clear sinuses, ease headaches, helps you to relax and unwind . When you apply our massage oil, muscular aches & pains ease, inflammation  and joint pain reduces.

As I mentioned in the last post, we have been working on these next three ranges for a very very very long time and to have their launch within touching distance is overwhelmingly exciting for us! Each collection has been developed by our own aromatherapist, Linda, who has been working with essential oils for over 25 years. You could say that she knows what she’s doing. If you would like to ask her anything at all about any of the collections and essential oils used then you can contact us on our social medias @helpmeorganics or via email: contact@helpmeorganics.com and she will be more than happy to answer your questions. We hope you are as excited as we are for the new products and you will be hearing from me this time next week with our third and final range announcement!

Hello everybody and welcome back to our little HMOblog! Today, we are introducing you to our BRAND NEW range that will be available from the 1st of December. The first range that we would like to share with you is our “help me feel fresh as a daisy” range, which I would love to tell you about.

For this collection, we blend together cedarwood, frankincense, rosemary and sweet orange. Do you adore the feeling of crisp and fresh mornings but don’t enjoy the cold? Why not bring that feeling into the warmth of your home with this range?

 

So, a little bit about the essential oils we have used:

Cedarwood:

This is a wonderful decongestant essential oil and helps to ease stuffy heads and fights coughs & colds. Massage with cedarwood to increase joint mobility and is especially good with arthritis.

Frankincense:

Used to help ease panic attacks, anxiety and stress, Frankincense is THE oil to aid meditation and relaxation. It will ease a troubled mind. In massage Frankincense is wonderful to fight stretch marks as it is a rejuvenating oil, it is truly effective to massage your stomach (in a clockwise direction) to bring a sense if calm during a time if panic.

Rosemary:

Best known as an aid for our memory, rosemary essential oil is energising . Rosemary is a protective oil, is antiseptic and gives a “ray of sunshine” to any blend.  This is a wonderful oil in massage as it eases muscle cramps and has stimulating properties.

Sweet Orange:

It’s an uplifting essential oil but it is calming when you feel frustrated. Sweet orange really helps to clear kitchen odours.

 

We have been working on these next three ranges for a very very very long time and to have their launch within touching distance is overwhelmingly exciting for us! Each collection has been developed by our own aromatherapist, Linda, who has been working with essential oils for over 25 years. You could say that she knows what she’s doing. If you would like to ask her anything at all about any of the collections and essential oils used then you can contact us on our social medias @helpmeorganics or via email: contact@helpmeorganics.com and she will be more than happy to answer your questions. We hope you are as excited as we are for the new products and you will be hearing from me this time next week with our second range announcement!

I know, I know… It’s only October but it’s never too early to start Christmas? Back when helpmeorganics was just a sparkle in our eyes, we created our first ever scent: our Christmas range. As we are lucky enough to have our own little store here in Cheshire, we were able to trial our very first scent on our customers before we designed our website and made it possible for anyone in the whole of Great Britain to try it. We had nothing but amazing feedback and sold out much earlier than we expected so we thought we would bring the exact same fragrance out this year but in multiple different products!

So, what’s in this scent? I personally don’t think there is a better time of year than Christmas but the fact that I really didn’t like the smell of anything including cinnamon made it difficult when I wanted to get a fragrance to fill my home with “Christmasiness” so I asked Linda, the founder of helpmeorganics (and my Mum), to make me a candle which smells like Christmas WITHOUT using cinnamon and she certainly didn’t disappoint. I actually keep a mini sample candle next to me here at my desk because I adore the smell and like to just have a little burst every now and again.

In this new scent, we have blended:

Sweet Orange has uplifting properties which, when inhaled, help to bring happiness, energy and joy which is helpful if you suffer with SAD. It also has anti viral properties too making this a wonderful addition to our festive blend

Lemon is very uplifting, fresh and energising plus it lifts the two spice essential oils.  The citrus undertones aid depression and fill the air with a long lasting happy scent.

Fir Needle – think of Christmas trees with their fresh aromatic scent and you will understand why we had to include fir needle essential oil.

Clove Bud is a protective cleansing oil which is helpful during colds and flu.  It is synonymous with Christmas and is very warming, calming.

Ginger is a warming oil which helps with seasonal affective disorder as it combats loneliness and is very energising.  Think of Christmas and ginger is an important spice, who doesn’t love a gingerbread house!

This year we have designed a 300g candle which will look beautiful on any Christmas dining table and will last the whole festive period.  Last year we were told that the wonderful scent filled their homes and brought a sense of happiness, family and comfort.  We have also designed a smaller candle, 75g, as the ideal stocking filler or indeed a travel candle for you to take with you if visiting family.

Our “help me get into the festive spirit” range also comes in a Room spray so that you can add an extra burst of fragrance if you are having guests over, or a party or just like to cleanse your kitchen after cooking.  Then our last product in the range is the Aromatherapy blend of organic essential oils, ideal to fragrance  potpourri bowls, fir cones or just place in a saucer of water in your office to bring Festive cheer wherever you go.  Pop 2 drops on a tissue and place in your car to keep you alert whilst driving.

 

Christmas is a wonderful time, we love it here at Helpmeorganics HQ, we will have lots of tips to help you enjoy this winter so please keep an eye on our website.

If you are stuck for a gift this Christmas, our Organic, Ethical, Vegan products are the answer!

 

 

Missing the warm days, the fresh breeze running through your house, the smell of flowers in full bloom? Well, the only way that you can bring that back into your home is using our “help me bring sunshine to a cloudy day” range. We have a candle, room spray and pure essential oil blend that will do just the job.

Not only will the blend of citronella, lemongrass, peppermint and spearmint make you feel like you are basking in the sun but will also help keep your home feeling clean, airy and free of them nasty mosquitoes. We have really thought of everything.

And to make this even more perfect, we have even knocked 40% our normal price!
Candles were £9.50 but are now £5.70
Room Sprays were £6.50 but are now £3.90
Essential Oil Blends were £10.50 but are now £6.30

Enjoy this offer for ALL of September as, on the 1st of October, we will be waving goodbye to our summer range for a year and welcoming our Christmas range entitled “help me get into the festive spirit” (yes, I know, it’s early but you can never start Christmas too early.)

No need to pop a discount code in at the checkout, just purchase as normal and enjoy your new products.

Have a lovely end of summer!

Being the little busy bees that we are, we have been scurrying around as our little products have been included in 2 subscription boxes this summer: The Really Good box and Skin Organics Beauty Box! Both subscription boxes are incredible and I would like to tell you why.

Firstly, in July, we were featured in The Really Good Box‘s Child’s Pose box! We always say that we love being included in subscription boxes but I never feel like we express it enough. Finding new subscription boxes is probably my favourite thing to do and it’s amazing when I come across a box like this that shares the same values as us. The Really Good Box looks for companies that are organic, vegan and cruelty free so you can imagine my excitement when I heard from Hannah that she would like to include us!

Our FULL SIZED “help me, it’s way past my bedtime” candle was the lucky one to get included in the July boxes, which perfectly fit the theme of the box. Everything inside supported the theme of being calm and relaxed, which is certainly what the blend of lavender, geranium, melissa leaf and eucalyptus will do. Our sleep candles are perfect for anybody who either have trouble calming an active mind or just want to have a relax. We blended these essential oils together as they perfectly compliment one another and do actually aid the feeling of sleepiness. You can read our “Reviews and Mentions” page to get a few thoughts off our wonderful customers, bloggers and youtubers who may have also tried the “help me, it’s way past my bedtime” range.

If you would like to have a look at the July box by The Really Good Box then you can here. There may even be a few left. But remember, once they’re gone, they’re gone! The Really Good Box is a wonderful British company who deserve all the success that they get and we can’t wait to be included in another of their boxes in the future.

Secondly, we have Skin Organics Beauty Box who like to include luxurious organic and natural skincare. They pride themselves on being able to find the hidden gems that provide beautiful clean and green products that won’t hurt our environment. They even have eco-friendly packaging! This is obviously so important to us and it’s lovely when we come across companies that also do the same.

Included within their August box was our “help me, it’s way past my bedtime” room sprays. These are seeming to be one of most popular products and I can see why (gosh, I am so biased!) I use this spray every single night and I sleep like a baby and I have heard other happy customers that have found the same. Using the same essential oils as the candle, the room spray creates a lovely sleepy and dreamy atmosphere in your room just before you go to bed. But, with the room spray, it takes two seconds to “spritz, spritz” and you have a lovely sleepy room. We have had some lovely feedback from a few bloggers: one being Sandra from Beauty Balm (we have her picture here to the left)  and you can read her review post HERE.

Again, if you would like to have a look at their subscription boxes and their shop then you can bob on over to their website which I will link HERE. And if you would like to have a look at the products mentioned or the whole “help me, it’s way past my bedtime” range, you can HERE.

I hope you have enjoyed learning about some wonderful subscription boxes. Both boxes are made in the UK (we do love a good British company when we spot one) and they are run by some very lovely ladies. We may or may not be featured in some other boxes soon but I will keep you posted on that one. I hope you all have a lovely day and I will see you again on our little blog soon. Bye lovlies!
