Taking time to relax and indulge is a vital part of well-being. Whether you take a day to yourself or just an evening, winding down has a number of benefits. From better sleep to improved mental and physical health and everything in-between, the list is endless. However, with stresses caused by daily life, sometimes you need a little help to take that well deserved time out, and that’s where Archipelago Botanicals come in.
All natural home fragrance and bodycare brand Archipelago Botanicals was inspired when founder Gregg Corzine’s son was suffering with allergies. After trying several solutions, the only one which worked was provided by an aromatherapist. Gregg became a fan of natural oils and extracts when essential oils were used in the home and the allergies improved. A few months later, Archipelago Botanicals was born. They quickly became well-known and loved for their range of candles and home fragrances.
As one of the leading brands for home fragrance products and candles, you can be sure that they will provide you with high quality products each and every time. Environmentally friendly, the brand offers a range of scents designed to calm and soothe the mind and body. They also have a collection of grooming products which are packed with antioxidants for healthy skin from head to toe.
The Boticario Diffuser is the perfect alternative to candles. Inspired by the sights and sounds of the exotic Havana, it boasts a calming fragrance of bergamot, tobacco leaf, ylang ylang, lemongrass and red cedar. Housed in a chunky glass jar, it infuses the air with a calming fragrance which lasts for around 3 months. Enhancing the atmosphere through both day and night, a therapeutic aroma will fill your home.
The Boticario Body Lotion is a high quality, rich moisturising lotion designed for both men and women. Suitable for daily use, it treats skin with natural ingredients including ylang ylang, tobacco flower and bergamot. Rich in antioxidants and AHAs, it hydrates the skin and reduces redness, calming dry, rough skin without leaving behind a greasy residue. Complete with a subtle, fresh citrus fragrance, it’s free from gluten, parabens and sulphates.
The Boticario Soy Candle is made with the finest quality soy wax combined with a unique, luxury blend of essential oils. This intoxicating Havana soy candle infuses the home with the fresh scent of Italian bergamot, tobacco flower, lemongrass, patchouli and red cedar. Hand poured into a black glass jar with a leather lid, this soothing candle burns for up to 55 hours.
