Grapefruit and Mint Pink Himalayan Salt Scrub

I’m writing this post bundled up in a duvet in front of the fire – winter has definitely arrived here in the UK! We missed out on the snow here this week, but have certainly had the sub zero temperatures. Yesterday I took the babies on the Santa…

Winter at Bliss Botanicals

Sugared Orange Slices
