Flower Of The 5 Wounds, by Guy Morgan

Flower of the 5 Wounds is Guy Morgan’s new range of facial oils and balms that borrows its name, colour and heart from the passionflower. Known mostly for its strange beauty, passionflower also has unique anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory properties and, apart from its use traditionally to treat scars and bruises, is restorative and calming for both the skin and the mind. Flower of the 5 Wounds, like all Guy Morgan products, is unisex and suitable for all skin types, but it’s pure and organic formulation in addition to it’s gentle base of passionflower-seed oil makes it ideal for sensitive skin and to use during pregnancy.

Selahatin toothpaste

Selahatin toothpaste

Swedish entrepreneur (and former magazine editor) Kristoffer Vural has found a gap in the dental hygiene market – a place to be filled with minimally adorned tubes of toothpaste flavoured with natural ingredients skilfully combined to please the palate. It was during a long period of recovery from a stroke, when he was contemplating what makes life worthwhile, that the idea to create what he calls ‘the Chanel of oral care’ struck. ‘It became clear that one thing that wasn’t very uplifting was brushing teeth. Whereas perfume can be like paintings for the mind, toothpaste received very little love.’ Raising the tooth-polishing experience by crowning clinical performance with complex accords, the launch flavours include anise, honey and peppermint; cinnamon, orange and peppermint; green mint, peppermint and menthol. All have whitening credentials and contain fluoride alongside anti-oxidants Edelwiss extract (to neurtralise free radicals adnd redress bacterial imbalance) and Betain (that relieves dry mouth) and are approved by the Swedish Dental Assocation.

Earl of East London

Earl of East London

With its new candles, bathing salts and essential oils, Earl of East London is embarking on a new journey. After Greece’s ‘greenhouse’, Lisbon’s ‘Viagem’ and the Palace of Versaille’s ‘Jardin de la Lune’ the brand is visiting Japan. The new blends are inspired by the bath culture in the land of the rising sun and ‘Shinrin Yoku’ (or forest bathing) is a mix of cedarwood, oakmoss and black pepper to create a calming meditating atmosphere, while ‘Onsen’ (or hot spring) combines peppermint, eucalyptus and mandarin to refresh and rejuvenate. Recently introduced in the London Design Junction, the candle also comes in a limited clay pot edition.
