Living Tree Orchid Essences

Creams

For over a decade now we have been wishing to bring our orchid essences out in a skin cream, but various obstacles kept presenting themselves. But finally we now have two skin creams which have the Living Tree Orchid Essences added to them.

The creams are produced locally on the Isle of Gigha, one mile from our premises. When the batches are produced Don goes along to add the drops of the orchid essence mother tinctures.

Neither product contains any Lanolin and are made from wheat-free sources.

These cream formulations have been developed locally by a small local business called Gigha's Natural Skincare, who have worked with us in refining the precise ingredients and the specification of the two formulae. As Morven is mixing the batch, she gives us a call, and I go one mile down the road here to add the drops of the different mother tinctures to the batch while it is cooling; and then Morven pours the finished cream into the jars.

This has several advantages:

  1. We are supporting a good local business. This is all the more important with our island location, where work is sometimes scarce. Helping the local economy to grow is a valuable process on Gigha.
  2. We cut down the transport and thereby the carbon costs.
  3. We are able to keep a close eye on the production process.
  4. By adding the drops of mother tincture at the very final stage, we ensure maximum potency of the essences is maintained. Batches are in small runs, which will also ensure that our customers get the creams with Best Before dates that are as long as possible. The creams have two years of shelf life at the time of production.
