Why we love Nathalie Bond Organics: UK MADE, HANDMADE, ORGANIC.

Nathalie Bond Organics handcraft small batches of botanical skincare and essential oil candles, using completely natural ingredients. Nat runs the company with her husband Andy out of a workshop in Sheffield. Together, they are passionate about natural skincare and believe that good business has the potential to make the world a better place.
In 2014 Nat became pregnant and made the decision to stop using beauty products packed with chemicals and began blending organic certified oils and butters to create skincare that was gentle, safe and sustainable.

Ingredients explained :
- Rose geranium is a bit of a superstar when it comes to health credentials. Not only does it carry a therapeutic fragrance – often used to relieve stress – it is an astringent, which means it can cause your blood vessels to contract, tightening the facial skin to reduce wrinkles. Plus, it can prevent the development of infections, speed up the healing of wounds and soothe scars.
- Patchouli can lift depression and anxiety, fight a fever, reduce inflammation and rejuvenate skin and hair through the increased production of red blood cells. And, if that wasn’t enough it also works as an insecticide.
- Apricot kernel oil is – unsurprisingly – extracted from the seeds of apricots. It is light in texture, so it can be absorbed quickly and then sets to work softening the skin. Not only does it contain vitamins A and E, it is also a wonderful moisturiser, anti-inflammatory and combats the signs of aging through nourishing and supporting the skin.
- Jojoba oil is pretty magical. It has an affinity with our body’s sebum, which means it is more readily absorbed than other oils. It helps balance sebum production when applied topically, so your skin should be neither oily nor dry.
- Calendula is famous for its ability to treat damaged and inflamed skin. It is often used as a remedy for wounds, acne, rashes and eczema. You might come across it in massage oils too, due to its softening and soothing properties.
- Vitamin E keeps skin happy and eyes bright. Its antioxidant properties means it is good at protecting the skin from unpleasant toxins and the sun’s powerful rays, whilst also retaining moisture.

We advise: My favourite. I wear this to bed every night and love drifting off to sleep smelling like an English country garden. My Nana always used to keep geraniums in her lean-to and this is the scent of countless summers pottering around with her. Perfect.

Great with: Nathalie Bond Lip Balm and Soap, Nathalie Bond Candles.
