All our Beauty products are mixed and bottled on site at The Salutation. Using only natural essential oils for scent, we have developed them using the garden for inspiration. We like to keep them as natural as possible, using crushed olive stones (instead of nasties like micro beads) in our gardeners hand scrub and avoiding synthetic perfumes. Made in small batches to keep everything fresh, we make as much as we need to avoid waste. They have proved so popular, we have developed them for use in our hotel, too, to cut down on ‘hotel miniatures’ plastic bottles. We are generous with essential oils, to ensure a long lasting scent.
All products have a one year shelf life.
