Baldwins at Christmas: Essential Oils, Gift Ideas and More

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas – and that’s why you are searching for decent Christmas essential oils. You know that the right blend can embellish your home with a warmly welcoming festive fragrance that makes you glad it’s Santa season all over again. We asked aromatherapy and skincare expert Jo Manchester for her favourite Christmassy aromatherpy products and gift ideas. Here’s what she picked.

Christmas essential oils

Looking for the best Christmas scents for your diffuser or burner? You could do far worse than mixing equal parts cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, orange and pine and sitting back while the scent of Christmas gently spreads through your home. But hey, Christmas is busy. So indulge the fact that Baldwins have already made the perfect essential oil blend on your behalf. Christmas in a little bottle, delivered to your door.

Christmas scented candles

Scented candles really help to make a house a home. That’s exactly what you want at Christmas. And for yuletide you can’t beat the combination of frankincense and myrrh essential oils in a candle to bring your home that quintessential festive fragrance. Or for something a little less spicy, try our yuletide aroma candle. It’s like mulled wine in whiff-form. Bliss.

Incense just makes sense

Good enough for the wise men; good enough for your in-laws. It doesn’t get more Christmassy than frankincense and myrrh. Frankincense has a calming effect and some research suggests it can also help alleviate symptoms of asthma and arthritis while improving gut function. Myrrh meanwhile is anti-bacterial and has long been used in Chinese medicine to help alleviate pain. What better tonic for a stress-induced headache after a busy day doing the Christmas shopping? Our Encens D'auroville frankincense and myrrh incense sticks make a great stocking filler.

Christmas skincare gifts

The excesses of the festive season can do a number on anyone’s skin. That won’t be a problem for anyone lucky enough to receive one of Baldwins’ gift boxes. Beautifully packaged and bursting with natural skin-nourishing goodness such as kaolin powder, gota-kola extract and papaya seed oil, the gift boxes provide a one-stop shop for round-the-clock skincare. The Pomegranate, Bilberry & Rose Gift Box

includes a cleansing lotion, skin tonic, eye cream, day cream and night cream. As for the men’s range you can expect a natural cotton flannel, facial wash, facial scrub, shaving oil and skin lotion. One to consider for anyone who wants to take skincare seriously.
