Neal’s Yard Opens in Canada in Calgary!

Back when I lived in London, I used to love popping into the posh shops in Richmond. One of my favourites was this all-natural, organic health and beauty store called Neal’s Yard. Imagine my delight when they opened their first Canadian store in Calgary a few weeks ago.

This is their 4th Street location.

The lovely little shop on trendy 4th Street is overflowing with luscious lotions and potions, that all smell so intoxicating. I fell in love all over again with their rose products – particularly the Rose Antioxidant Mask and Wild Rose Beauty Balm. The balm has reached cult status, as you can use it as a mask, moisturizer, lip salve and even as a cleanser. It may be organic, but this shit works, man!

Love this mask!

One thing I didn’t realize is that they offer treatments such as massage and facial cupping. I have facial cupping done occasionally by my acupuncturist and it’s awesome for detoxifying, plus lessening the effect of wrinkles and scars. I haven’t booked in with Neal yet, but when I do, I’ll let ya know what it’s like.

Smelling notes. And wine. And chocolate.

Making your own perfume and oils at Neal’s Yard

I created my own shower gel and body oil (using their essential oils)  this a few weeks ago. Doing so, I  learned all sorts of nifty things about top, base and middle notes, plus the health benefits attributed to each essential oil. A look at my testing notes reveals I thought Geranium smelt like dirt (but is apparently good for PMS). I found Frankincense to be complex and lemony, yet gross. And Ylang ylang smelt like mentholated sport sox. Sadly, I don’t think I’m cut out for a career as a perfumer.

It's a good idea to take notes of your reaction to the scents.
