You may have noticed a few months back I created my organic tea Tub Teas. I have recently added some new Tub Teas to the range which are available individually, in a set of 3 or in a Tub Tea sampler pack featuring all 5 varieties. Each little packet of Tub Tea contains a lovely blend of organic tea, muscle soothing epsom salts, essential oils to match the tea and zeolite clay to detox the body. There is a Tub Tea to suit everyone - whether you just want to unwind and relax, or you're in need of a soothing detox bathing experience or just want to feel like Cleopatra in a milky rose bath. Tub Tea is the perfect way to relax after a long day. I have created a range of hand blended organic teas which are perfect for sipping on while you're enjoying your soothing Tub Tea experience.
Here's a little bit of info on each so you can decipher which one tickles your fancy!
'Cleopatra' - a lovely organic blend of Jasmine tea and rose petals with rose geranium essential oil - this lovely rose Tub Tea includes rose petal powder - fantastic for softening the skin. You'll feel relaxed and your skin will feel amazingly soft and nourished. Our matching Cleopatra organic tea is also available to complete you rose bath experience. Help your skin from the inside out with this beautiful rose petal combo.
'Vanilla Chai Latte Tub Tea ' - a spicy blend of organic chai along with vanilla essential oil, epsom salts, oatmeal and zeolite clay. Our Chai Organic blend is also available - why not make yourself a real chai latte and indulge your senses in the spicy aroma of chai. This lovely combination will whisk you away to wonderful spice markets in far away lands.
'Calm Me Chamomile' - Organic chamomile flowers with Roman chamomile essential oil, epsom salts, oatmeal and zeolite clay. The perfect way to unwind. Our Chamomile flower organic tea is also available so you can sip on a cup to complete your calming bathing experience.
'Invigorate Me' which is my hand blended earl grey organic tea with rose petals and cornflowers - it's so pretty and is lovely to pop in the bath for an invigorating home spa pampering. This invigorating tub tea features essential oils of pink grapefruit & bergamot, epsom salts, oatmeal and zeolite clay. Lovely when paired with our Invigorate Me Organic drinking tea.
'Flora' This all natural Flora Tub Tea is named after the Roman Flower Goddess of the same name. A Colourful and aromatic blend of organic rose petals, chamomile, calendula petals, Heather flowers, lavender and white peony tea make for a visually appealing bath time. Epsom salts, oatmeal, zeolite clay and rose geranium & lavender essential oils make this Tub Tea a luxurious floral bath time experience.
All of my Tub Teas come packaged individually with the organic tea in a little organza bag so the tub doesn't get messy. Give the bag a little squeeze every now and then to release the teas healing properties. Once the tea has softened in the organza bag you can use it to brush your body. The bag acts as an exfoliant and the tea properties can then be absorbed into the skin.
All of my Tub Teas are available to purchase in my online store as individual packs or in a pack of 3 and also in a sampler pack which features all 5 Tub Teas. If you would like to enjoy a cup of our organic tea along with your Tub Tea I have also put together a gift sets which includes a Tub Tea, Organic drinking tea and a beauty mask.
The Linny Loves... shop is growing, and we have just recently welcomed a new family member - Peony N Pearl! Fionna is the brainchild behind Peony N Pearl, she is a super talented lady with skills from handmade wire jewellery to amazing florals. This multi-talented creative is a good friend of mine that I met a few years back during some creative ventures, and I am sure glad I did meet her! Along the way, Fionna and I have worked together on a few photoshoots and actually worked together on our own projects from her home. It's been so wonderful for me to have met such an amazing friend and creative talent. Sounding ideas off each other rather than talking to ourselves (any creative who works from home knows how isolating it can be working solo, and the chatter between me, myself and I can become a little too real).
So now that you have a little bit of background, here is some of Fionna's amazing work. Although I am not selling her florals on the website, I must show you some of the artistic florals she has created, afterall, she is a very talented florist/floral stylist too! But first, here is a bit of what you'll find in the Linny Loves... shop
Each one of Fionna's wire work pieces are so intricately made, you have to look closely at the amazing detail! Each piece is made from scratch - she creates the base frame of her work from strong bendable wire, then coils yet more wire around the wire frame she has created. Each piece is first sketched out and then measurements are made to precisely create the intricate work detailed above. Fionna uses quality components including gemstones and Swarovkski crystals to create these unique wearable pieces of art.
Her jewellery is unique, intricate and truly handmade - I have personally seen the hours that go into making such beautiful work - certainly a skill to be admired, I hope to get some lessons one day, as I can only imagine the headpieces I would come up with having such a skill in my arsenal!
These silk flower crowns and hair pins are a more recent addition to Fionna's gorgeous work. As sometimes working with fresh flowers and their lack of permanence can be difficult, Fionna ventured into making silk flower crowns and hair accessories. Flower crowns have been so popular for weddings and they're sure to stay on-trend for quite some time and with pretties such as these, how could they go out of fashion!
Here is just a couple of examples of Fionna's floral work with fresh flowers. I particularly fell in love with the Peony N Pearl display she made for RAW. I want one! It also has some cute air plants hanging from the branches. Now, lets not forget about that dress! This dress and others from The Rock Stars & Royalty collection were showcased at Fash Fest this year and what an impact they made! The dresses used a combination of real and silk flowers and now have been immortilsed with silk and real touch flowers. Just beautiful! Fionna is available for weddings and events for floral styling and she also does custom jewellery if you are looking for something extra special. Head to her website for more details.
