Regular readers and social media followers will know there’s nothing I like more than getting my hands on new Orla Kiely items. This month I’m welcoming some sweet smelling scents into my home thanks to the new Orla Kiely home range.
First up I have a gorgeous and elegant looking geranium handwash and hand lotion duo. These came in an Orla Kiely embossed tin and with their own ceramic dish. I think they’d make a lovely gift for someone – whether an Orla Kiely fanatic or not. I’m using mine in the kitchen to keep my hands clean and smooth after cooking and cleaning. Both items contain essential oils including geranium, eucalyptus and clary sage – all of which smell really refreshing. You might also like to know that these hand care items are free from parabens, sulphates, petrochemicals and artificial colourings.
And filling my kitchen with the beautiful scent of fig is a mini Orla Kiely candle and reed diffuser. Needless to say I adore the olive green acorn pattern on show. Fig is one of my absolute favourite scents and these home fragrances contain essential oils of lime, cardamom and bitter orange – generating a lovely warm and luxurious fragrance on my home. Other scents in the range include orange rind, basil & mint, sicilian lemon and earl grey.
I think it’s always nice to introduce new scents to the home during a season change as it livens the home up a bit and mentally prepares you for the months ahead. Do you agree?
