Who Can Wait For Spring? Give Me Jasmine NOW! August 15 2017, 0 Comments

 

What can you say about the heady aroma of jasmine? For a deeply fragrant hand and body cream, this spring we've added it to our collection of soft and moisturising organic jojoba cream range.  

Made fresh and preserved with natural anti-oxidants. Store your jar in a cool place and remember to regularly wipe moisture from inside the lid to help extend shelf-life.

Ingredients: Distilled water, jojoba oil organic (simmondsia chinensis), shea butter  organic (butyrospermum parkii), wax (coconut oil), grapefruit seed extract, vegetable glycerine; essential oil jasmine (jasminum officinale).

 This cream is suitable for vegans

Forestial July 15 2017, 0 Comments

Forestial essential oil: not just for the guys. The clean citrus freshness of the bergamot and mandarin essential oils, combined with the sweet wood scent of fir, makes Forestial Essential Oil ideal for helping to banish winter coughs and colds. Use in an oil burner to perfume the room, dilute for massage oil, or dab on a few drops as a personal fragrance to clear your head and your mind.

 

Did you know?

The mandarin (Citrus reticulata) is a native of south-western Asia, including China, and was introduced in Europe much later than the orange. Mandarins get their name from the English word for Chinese officials.

Mandarin essential oil is widely used in perfumes, including Armani’s Vetiver Babylone for men, Salvador Dali Classique for women, as well as Malka’s Forestial blend.

Sweet Sleep, Sweet Cinnamon (Necessity is the mother of invention, part 4) May 08 2016, 0 Comments

As vivid as if it happened yesterday (1997). Finally, the crucible – the point of no return – in the early hours of a Sunday morning, dozing through the twilight zone - I was juggling two questions: ‘How am I going to provide for these daughters?’ and ‘What would be a good combination of essential oils to combat those silverfish in the wardrobe?... Perhaps if we used….’ and then, as though by Mother Nature herself another Malka baby was conceived, Sweet Cinnamon

And while we're on the subject of not testing our products on animals...
It's the 1990s, the babies arrive and prompt more experimentation and development of the of the Malka Natural Skin Care range: bathed in chamomile tea bags or diluted cider vinegar; calendula cream was created to treat a little eczema; arnica cream for bruises and after-ballet massage; baby balm for that red rash around their lips when ‘run-down’; lip balm for, well…cracked & dry lips.

Purposeful Pot Pourri (Necessity is the mother of invention, part 2) May 08 2016, 0 Comments

Celebrating Mothers


My mother-in-law in her element, an actress in UK Rep theatre in 1950s. No, she didn't use Malka Rose & Beeswax Cream to take off her her make-up but you can bet she wishes she did.

Purposeful Pot Pourri
Her diversion is to dry out aromatic flowers, mix with spices and sachet-up in William Morris fabric for fragrant drawers or display in the odd antique dish. One of her first gifts to me: a silver lidded Stuart Crystal bowl filled with dried renunculi, poppies & coriander seeds, spawning a new Malka obsession.

Lesley is altruistic from head to toe. Among many things she has recorded readings for the blind, volunteered her time with PLAN Australia & Oxfam, boxed and hand stitched sachets of pot pourri diverting all sales' proceeds to The Mental Illness Fellowship http://www.mifellowship.org/
