A Gift of Wellness…


A Gift of Wellness… Imagine if you could wrap up a parcel of good health, send an envelope filled with relaxation, or courier a box full of nurturing intention, to a much loved family member or a very special friend.
Well now you can, as I have just launched ‘A Gift of Wellness’ treatment vouchers. A beautifully designed and well presented gift card that can be used for any of the therapies offered at Boutique Wellbeing, from a Deep Sleep Face Treatment, Deep Connection Body Massage to a Luxury Manicure or Reflexology.

Boutique Wellbeing at Ash Cottage is just 5 miles from the beautiful town of Woodstock, located in the heart of the Cotswolds. A rural retreat that offers bespoke natural therapies, a perfectly unique and indulgent gift for Christmas or any special occasion.

Restorative Cleansing Balm – de Mamiel


I love the ritual of cleansing my face, taking off the day’s grit and grime, ridding the skin of toxins and pollutants with each buff, so to me, a good cleanser is one of the most important factors in preventing premature ageing.

de Mamiel’s Restorative Cleansing Balm harnesses the spirit-lifting properties of pure flower essences – honey myrtle, fragonia, chamomile and rose geranium – alongside blemish battling probiotics, to restore the complexion to its clear, supple and luminous best. Anti-bacterial manuka helps to reduce the probability of breakouts, while nourishing kukui, calendula and moringa oils combine to replenish precious moisture and enhance skin’s strength, elasticity and resilience.

An effortless way to dissolve every last trace of make up, this soul and skin-soothing balm melts residual oil and purges your pores of impurities, so skin is left ‘squeakily’ clean with a plump, dewy and comforted feel.  It comes in two sizes, a 50ml and 100ml with the latter lasting a good 6/8 weeks due to only a nugget of this dreamy product being required for each cleanse..

Massage a small amount between your palms and onto your face and neck in upward circular motions. Soak a cloth in warm water and hold it against your face for a minute, to steam and activate the oils – breathe deep, then buff away….pure bliss.
