Phew, that's better!
Needed to give myself a little bit of a treat this morning, so plopped one of these in my bath. Feel all soft, smooth and gorgeously smelling, now.
Packed full of plant butters and oils to nourish your skin, fragranced with essential oils of Jasmine and Ylang ylang, these bath melts by Ceri of Oakwood Soaperie are perfect for a little pick me up and a pamper. Drop into a running bath, climb in and let the nutritious oils feed your skin with vitamins and minerals.
No need for a moisturiser after one of these luxury melts as the oils sink in to your warm skin and provide all the moisture it could need. In fact, you can even split them in two for two baths - they're that packed full of gorgeous scent and moisturising oils.
Our customers love our bath melts, too - see the website for glowing 5 star reviews, such as "it melts really well, smells GORGEOUS and is a little bit of well deserved yummy heaven for anyone in need of a bit of TLC!"
Treat yourself or someone special today with a bath melt (or two!) from The Emporium. At just £2 each, they are a affordable way to really give yourself a proper pamper!

Helen, aka 'Cottage Candles', creates beautiful handmade beeswax candles from her home in Ketton near Rutland Water in the UK.
Thoroughly luxurious, these candles are clean and natural.
Available in sets of pairs or three, or individually priced (just use the options on the page and the prices will adjust accordingly), the candles make a lovely addition to any eco-friendly, natural home. They give off a slightly honey-like aroma as they burn, plus burn cleanly without any sooty residue or chemicals.
Characteristics of Beeswax
- 100% beeswax candles burn longer than ordinary paraffin candles
- Beeswax candles burn with a brighter light than normal wax candles
- Beeswax does not give off a sooty residue or release chemicals as it burns
- As a beeswax candle burns, negative ions are emitted which clean the air by latching onto the positive ions which cling to airborne particles of dust, mould and odours, thereby purifying the air
- Beeswax gives off a wonderful mild aroma of honey
- Beeswax candles are thoroughly luxurious!
All these gorgeous candles and plenty more natural, handmade and eco-friendly gift ideas can be found on The Emporium Oundle website - just click any of the images to go directly to the Cottage Candles page, or go to : http://www.theemporiumoundle.com/
