One of the best things about my job is discovering local businesses and learning about their amazing products and the stories behind them.

Gullane-based Beatitude is our very own award-winning aromatherapy brand and they offer an array of gorgeous products for relaxation and rejuvenation. Founder and creator Rebecca O’Connor has developed unique and distinctive bath oils, body oils, facial oils and cleansing bars. In fact, I’m a big fan of their new Peace Pillow Spray. With its mind relaxing properties, it’s perfect for ensuring a good night’s sleep, essential as we head into the hectic holiday period. Here’s what I’m crossing my fingers (and toes) for this festive season!


I can’t imagine finding anything quite as nice as a mini bottle of Beatitude Bath Oil in my Christmas cracker. Except for a full sized bottle maybe?

These chic gold and white crackers will give you and your guests pure unadulterated pleasure this Christmas. Beatitude’s Peace, Joy and Patience beauty crackers contain a small bottle of bath oil designed to seduce the senses with delightful blends that come alive on the skin. Beatitude Bath Oils use unusual and regenerative natural plant and essential oils including; Oat, Peach Kernel, Camellia oil and Daikon Radish Seed Oils enveloping you in a tranquil bathing haven, while skin is left wonderfully smooth and supple. What’s more, the bath oils cleverly disperse in the water so there’s no greasy feeling (on you or the bath).

Christmas Beauty Cracker £8


Experiencing Christmas should involve all five of the senses, including smell and there’s nothing like a Christmas candle to get you into the spirit of the festive season.

If ever a candle encapsulated the allure of Christmas, this is it. This beautiful candle is made with vegetable eco soy wax and contains a luxurious blend of the finest essential oils including clementine, geranium, lavender plus seasonal festive oils of clove, cinnamon and cardamon. The aroma lingers beautifully and makes me want to spend the rest of the festive season snuggled up on the sofa by the light of its delicious-smelling flame!
