Neal’s Yard Remedies is a modern apothecary, creating award-winning natural and organic health and beauty products. All of their products are handcrafted at their eco-factory in Dorset and only use natural, organic and ethically sourced herbs, botanicals and essential oils free from harmful chemicals. They were the first health and beauty brand to receive 100/100 for ethics by The Ethical Company Organisation. Personally, I use their aromatherapy and wellness blends for improving mood, but they also do a wide bath and skincare range.
