Dear customers and friends
The sun is setting on another beautiful crisp autumn day in London and I have just returned home
from my first day in our new manufacturing premises .
I must thank those of you who have kindly
nudged me to let them know what's been happening at Verde and apologise to all of you for my delay in communicating.
My new landlords found a tenant who agreed to their terms and conditions , and so gave me four weeks notice
I would describe myself as a little logistically challenged,, and for any of us that have had such a major move with
twenty years of "stuff" to sort out it was extremely stressful ..... more so has into the third week
I had still not found a suitable place.... and at the eleventh hour I got a phone call and we are now in a lovely place
its half the size and has wonderful big stainless steel sinks !
I was getting through lots of RUSH SLOWLY during that time , and a mail order customer who was ordering the other day
said " I feel I could run the country on that stuff", which made me laugh... I also found the MENS RELAXING BATH SALTS
a wonderful support ... thought I had better use the executive stress strength!!
its a good alternative to High Anxiety bath milk when the going is tough ...... I do realised that that's a very indulgent
statement to make when SO many people in the world are living with unbelievable hardship .
One of the most beautiful things about working with plant oils is the feeling of being connected to history,
especially with the coming of Christmas.... Frankincene FRANKINCENSE. A very valuable oil 2000 + years ago as it is today. It was used in china+ Egypt for its wonderful rejuvenating effects in cosmetics , as well as. Being used medicinally.
An oil resin that is still used in incense today for prayer and meditation and said to promote deeper calmer breathing
Blended into FRANKINCENSE and CARROT daliy moisturiser
As for MYRRH it has so many beneficial propertes.
The Roman soilders were said to make an ointment of myrrh oil before going ito battle.
It has many uses from including perfume to ulcers !
Used in the LAVENDER & MYRRH mouthwash and DULCET TONES throat spray
a great favourite with a neahbour and two custmers who are all opera singers!
Staying with the biblical times
Mary was said to have massaged Jesus feet with Nard oil (in the Bible ) this is Spikeanard oil
which I personal love,
its got a very earthy sweet fragrance, and was also prised as a perfume and a cosmetic ingredient to royalty in the distant past.
Blended into the SERENITY BATH
I have to be careful about over describing products and their outstanding properties, as in the context of a newsletter as it could be interpreted as medicinal claims
Is our new face book page with love and gratitude to Dominic who insisted with energetic enthusiasm that I need to do it
So if you are a facebooker please would you "like " us .
And as the season of giving is in the air, I thought I would give the firm christmas favourites a mention.......

We have gift vouchers if you would like to give but want others to choose for themselves .
my intention is to put a little sample of something in every order .. I am not sure this will always be achievable , but I will do my best!
The good news is that the Royal mail have because of millions of complaints dropped the size pricing which means
all parcels up to 1k in weight cost a flat rate fee of £2.60 up to 2k is £ 5.20 these are 2nd class which I generally use to keep costs down.. so if you prefer 1st class or signed for please put a note on your order.
And as the season of Christmas gets earlier every year let's hope that civility, kindness, compassion,
Peace, love, generosity, friendship and those lighter noble qualities surround us all.
WARMEST WISHES for the Solstice and Christmas
