From The Heart

Last Sunday, when I was helping His Lordship prepare dinner, I received a gorgeous little hand-delivered package from a US beauty brand about to launch in the UK called Buddha Nose - a certified organic body care that inspires the mind-body-beauty connection.

Beautifully packaged and containing a personal introduction from the brand, I was instantly impressed by their attention to detail and values from the outset - a key ingredient for a brand starting out in a new market and trying to garner attention from the press and joe public.

Aside from the packaging and cute recycled notebook containing lovely, uplifting quotes and Buddhist blessings, the real gem was the product encased in the dark blue glass.

The Buddha Nose Heart Spray (£16.95) is ideal for healing and nourishing - which is perfect as I am definitely in need of that at the moment. Made with the organic and wild-crafted essential oils of Ylang Ylang, English Chamomile, Angelica Seed, Sweet Orange,Petitgrain and Sandalwood, the Heart Spray helps to soothe unsettling feelings or can be used as a skin toner or room spray. It smells delicious and you can't help but feel uplifted and content - I have even sprayed it on lots of my sleeves so I can get a whiff of it any time I want.

An all-round good for you brand. Can't wait to get my hands on some more of their products in spring.

Some brand background:
Amy Galper was a New York City based shiatsu practitioner who founded Buddha Nose in 2004 to encourage her mostly female clientele to "be still and breathe". Recognizing the connection between the energetic dynamics of shiatsu, a Japanese form of bodywork based in Traditional Chinese Medicine, and with the essential oils of aromatic plants Amy created handmade beauty products in her kitchen to inspire the mind-body-beauty connection.
