Your Safety

 Our business has now closed 
Thank you to all of our customers over the past few years.  It's been fun!  We hope you have enjoyed the products we've made.  Perhaps the shop will return again one day in the future.
Best wishes, Jonathan & Mike


Please read carefully before purchasing any of our products.

Firstly an apology for the tone of the content of this page.  It is deliberately strong as this advice is to ensure you understand that you take responsibility for your own wellbeing.

Some basic safety information that should hopefully be obvious:
  • Be safety conscious when burning candles or incense.  Never leave them unattended.
  • Do not eat/drink any of our products.
  • Keep away from eyes.
  • Keep oils away from fire and sources of heat.
  • Keep out of reach of children and pets.
Product use
We concentrate on the traditional, magical and spiritual properties of the ingredients used in our products.

We are not trained aromatherapists or herbalists.

Our products are intended for use in a magical, spiritual or energetic sense and therefore our oils are not dedicated aromatherapy oils.

When creating our oil blends, we use dilutions to the recommended standards so skin contact should be safe.  However, everyone is different and some people have more sensitive skin than others.  Therefore, if you take it upon yourself to use an oil blend on your skin, perhaps for anointing etc. then check a small area of your forearm for sensitivity first.  A trained aromatherapist will be able to help you if your are uncertain how to do this.

Do your own research.  Understand what your are doing and why you are doing it.

Pregnancy
If you are pregnant or even think you may be pregnant, consult a qualified aromatherapist for suitability and safety of specific oils.  Many oils and incenses should not be used during pregnancy, some only need to be avoided for the first 3-4 months, others may be helpful during labour but may pose a risk during the months before.  A list of ingredients for any of our products is available on request if you need to check for the presence of a particular ingredient.

Medical conditions
If you suffer from any serious medical conditions or if you are taking prescription drugs, we recommend that you consult a qualified doctor or practitioner before attempting to treat yourself in any way.  Look for a practitioner / doctor who you can trust and who is prepared to work with you in exploring natural health options that will work alongside conventional medicine.

Never stop taking any medication unless instructed to do so by your doctor.

Pure essential oils
As a general note (as we do not currently sell them), never apply undiluted essential oils to the skin.  The usual aromatherapy standard dilution is between 1% and 3%, but some oils may be used in higher dilutions, some in lower dilutions.  Consider each essential oil individually.  Consult a trained aromatherapist or herbalist.

Spiritual Matters
You are responsible for finding your own spiritual path and navigating the undoubted twists and turns inherent in any search for the divine.

If you purchase a product from us then this confirms that you have understood the above advice.

We do not accept any responsibility for the avoidance of the above advice.
