What is the secret seven you may ask? Well what I can tell you is that I have been working on a new tea range (yes 7 different varieties) which will soon be released! We have had a little packaging revamp which I am proud to say has much improved. These new tisanes will come packaged in our lovely crisp white zip lock packets with a wooden spoon which has a secret words of wisdom scroll attached. These little packets of loose leaf tea make for a wonderful gift to let someone know you're thinking of them or just a nice little pick me up.
Some of our more popular tea blends will be making an appearance in the secret seven along with some new and some improved! We can tell you that our Flora blend will be returning (see pic above) and also our ever popular Cleopatra blend - but with a lovely addition to tantalise your palate. We will have the new, the improved and the classics up on the website very, very, soon! Stay tuned and make sure you check our IG and FB to stay informed. We're very excited to launch these newbies with a fresh clean look, we hope you love the changes as much as we do.
When you send us feedback, we want you to know we're listening! So having said that we had a few lovely customers let us know that our Activated Charcoal Mask was a little difficult to remove. We want you to know that we deeply appreciate your feedback and we have taken it on-board. Now whilst trialing the Activated Charcoal Mask, I myself did have a bit of trouble removing it with just water - but to counteract this I used a cleanser afterward to remove the residue, I now realise that customers would prefer to have something with the activated charcoal for the removal of residue, so now included in the Activated Charcoal Mask are two sachets - 1) contains the activated charcoal mask and 2) contains baking soda - it is highly effecting at removing the residue of the mask and is also great for pulling away blackheads that the activated charcoal is drawn to. The baking soda also has an exfoliating action which will clear dead skin cells and help to make your skin feel soft after the treatment.
Once again, thank you lovely customers for your feedback and if you are looking to try the new improved Activated Charcoal Mask, we'd love to hear your thoughts on the improvements.

Yes, that's right! We're taking custom orders for headpieces and jewellery once again. It's been a little while since I have done a custom order, and to be honest I missed it! While I was rather busy slightly changing the direction of Peacock & Lotus I didn't want my brides to be to feel left out, so I am now once again taking on a small number of custom orders, 2 per month to be exact. The reason being is that I want to be able to offer a supreme service to my brides and taking on more than I can handle doesn't equal good service and attention to detail.
I will still continue to release new pieces to my collections both in the Luxe Label and The Classic Label all of which can be customised, but if you are after something that is completely you, I am at your service! Prices depend on what type of piece you are after, generally for a heavily beaded piece prices start from $150 +. Pricing can be a little tricky at times but I always try to accommodate my clients needs, if you are after a simple headpiece or piece of jewellery with a clear idea of what you are after the price can be very reasonable as I generally charge for the time it takes to create your piece. If you would like more info or have any queries on custom made headpieces or jewellery, please don't hesitate to get in touch either by our contact form or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Now that I have established my new line of bath & body products and organic tea blends I will be back to creating some new headpieces and jewellery to satisfy my love of adornments! Enough blogging, it's time to get designing!!!!
Until next time,
Introducing these two new babies to the Peacock & Lotus family! 'Bitter Sweet' Organic Coffee & Cacao Sugar Body Scrub & 'Green With Envy' Organic Matcha Green Tea Body Scrub.

I'm loving both of these scrubs so much I am finding it difficult to choose which one to use! It may be a case of alternating days I think. Both of these scrubs contain all natural ingredients and organic ingredients where possible of course. All our scrubs are made to order and have a shelf life of 3 months as there are no preservatives in these lovely all natural scrubs. Don't worry it'll be easy to use these up within 3 months cos you'll be addicted!

It's been quite some time since I have created something with lace, so I thought I should get embellishing! A lot of time has been spent on my new range of bath & body products and tea blends, so designing and creating bridal and event adornments had been put on the back burner for a while. It was really nice to sit and just design and then hand sew some new lace beauties for half a day. I am going to make sure I do it more often from now on!
Below is a new rather simple design in a deep ivory lace with silver seed beads and crystal rhinestones. It's a wonderful piece for a bride who wants to wear something in her hair but also a piece that is a little bit understated.
Another newbie I have added to my Luxe Headpieces is this heavily heavily embellished wrap around freshwater pearl headpiece. This headpiece is set on the same deep ivory lace as used on the above design, but I thought I would use ivory seed beads and copious amounts of freshwater pearls. This bridal headpiece has a very vintage feel to it which I love. Hours upon hours of embellishing work were done on this piece, but I think it was worth the effort!
I'd forgotten how much I love embellishing lace! It really can be a soothing experience and is great for slowing down the mind! Maybe it's time for me to create a new collection!
Some of you may have noticed some new additions to my bath & body range and organic tea range over the last month. I have gone totally and utterly bonkers over Matcha!!! What's Matcha you ask? It's a wonderful deeply green stone ground powder made from young tea leaves. This Matcha stuff packs a punch and is soooo good for you. Just 1 cup of it is equivalent to 10 cups of regular green tea in terms of antioxidant content! Fabulous, isn't it! I know right!
I tried Matcha a few years back when my brother introduced me to it. I was wondering why this green tea was so green and had so much more flavour than the regular varieties ( I didn't know it was Matcha at the time). My brother told me what it was and then I was hooked. Fast forward a few years later and it's the new best thing in super foods and well there are great reasons for this.
I loved it so much that I decided to create 3 new products - I had to stop myself at 3 hahah. So there is my Matcha Beauty Mask, The tea itself (mind you I didn't create it - I just sourced some really awesome Matcha) and my Matcha Tub Tea. I decided to call them Green with Envy, because well everyone will be green with envy when they see how wonderful your skin looks after using Matcha and drinking Matcha!
So firstly onto the Matcha Mask - I love this as it's so soothing to the skin and is helping to deliver beneficial antioxidants right to the skins surface. Matcha has wonderful detoxifying qualities so it really helps to clear the skin of impurities and at the same time keeping your skin hydrated and baby soft! You can find my Green with Envy Matcha Mask HERE
Now onto my Green with Envy Tub Tea. We all know I love my Tub Tea! So this one has all the ingredients that I normally have in my Tub Teas just with Matcha as well. In the tea bag component I've also added regular organic green tea so you can still use the bag to exfoliate your body once the tea leaves have softened. Just imagine soaking in a wonderfully green bath with lots of antioxidants and other fabulous detoxifying ingredients, sip on a cup of Matcha too and all your friends will be green with envy! You can purchase my Green with Envy Matcha Tub Tea HERE
Last but definitely not least - My Matcha Green Tea - organic of course! I love to drink it in the morning or add it to a green smoothie. I have also been experimenting with making Matcha jelly, it's pretty yummy. Maybe when next time I slip into Matcha madness I'l make a Matcha ice cream!
We want to thank our wonderful customers for a fabulous 2015, so we are offering you a huge 30% off everything from 29/12/15 until 2/1/2016, what a wonderful way to bring in the new year! Now is the time to stock up on our organic tea range, all natural bath & body products and maybe even pick up a pretty adornment for a special occasion. Sale is on for only a few days so get in before our products are back at their original retail price.
Thank you for a wonderful 2015 - can't wait to bring in 2016! Stay tuned for our new products in the new year.
You may have noticed our new range of candles that have recently been added to our shop. These aren't just any candles, these candles are a bit special if I do say so myself. So what's so special about them you may ask? Well let me tell you, when I first decided to add soy wax candles to my collection, I found that all the synthetic fragrances are not particularly great for your health, I didn't want to create a range that was going to contribute to peoples heath problems. Not only was there the problem on synthetic substances used in making candles, but the ethical problem of the kind of wax to be used. I could not feel good about using palm wax, knowing it in many cases is not sustainable or ethical. I spent a lot of time finding a sustainable, ethical and non-GMO soy wax so I could feel good about my product having less of a negative impact on the environment and people. I have also sourced 100% natural cotton wicks for a clean even burn that pollute the air you breathe. Peacock & Lotus candles use only natural fragrances which are created with blending 100% natural essential oils. You won't find any chemical nasties in our candles or bath & body products. I am committed to using natural ingredients - I wouldn't create anything that I wouldn't use myself.
I have created 4 new essential oil blends to fill your home with a natural, clean, non-toxic scent.
Invigorate Me - One of my favourites - encompasses a blend of Bergamot and Pink Grapefruit for a zesty and uplifting scent that will invigorate your home and spirit!
Flora - A floral sensation of Rose Geranium, Lavender and Pettigrain.
Into The Woods - A woodland dream, light this candle to take you to a magical woodland forest. With essential oils of Rosemary, Cedarwood, Lemon Myrtle, Thyme & Lavender. An earthy & masculine scent.
Citrus & Sunshine - Smells as it sounds! A summery scent with hints of vanilla and sunshine. Scented with essential oils of Vanilla, Pink Grapefruit, Bergamot, Orange & Lime.
All of our candles come in a gorgeous quilted mason jar - they will burn for approximately 40+ hours. Available in our shop for $25 each or $40 for two what a super deal.
