I’ve been meaning to review my Lola’s Apothecary products for some time now, as they have been a regular feature of my bath time routine for quite a while. I first came across the brand when I was gifted a bath oil and candle set for my birthday last year and I loved the scent and quality of the products so much that I wanted to share it with you guys!
Lola’s Apothecary started out in London and is now based in Devon. They produce indulgent bath products with fabulous scents such as Orange Patisserie, Rose and Lavender and they’ve been featured in big publications such as Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Nylon & Marie Claire, to name a few!
ORANGE PATISSERIE BATHING RITUAL
My Orange Patisserie gift set came with a naturally fragrant candle, a bottle of orange bath oil, some ‘Rainbows & Whirlwinds’ tea bags and a sweet little pot of raw Devon honey.
Receiving a package like this is a real joy, because each of the products are so indulgent. One little sniff of that bath oil and I was hooked! The scent is just like an orange drizzle cake and the fragrance does a great job of permeating throughout the bathroom.
Orange Patisserie Candle
The pattern on this candle is lovely and the fragrance is intense. If you like the scent of oranges then I definitely recommend getting your hands on one of these, because lighting it for just 10 minutes is enough to fill your room with a heady aroma. I will say that the consistency of the candle is very strange (almost mushy) and the scent is powerful; so if you’re the sort of person who gets headaches from strong scents, maybe stay away. Otherwise, this would be a fabulous gift for scented candle lovers.
Orange Patisserie Bath Oil
This little bottle of bath oil smells delightful and just a few drops is enough to fill a bath. I add some to my running water but you can also massage a small amount onto your body prior to a bath or shower. The fragrance is long lasting and when you leave your bath it feels silky on your skin. This is a lovely product and trust me when I say it will last you for months!
The Raw Devon Honey
What I liked the most about the honey pot was the story behind it. Lola sources her honey from Dartmoor National Park, where she knows that the dedicated beekeepers look after their bee hives and the insects themselves can collect honey from beautiful wildflowers. Apparently, the honey is cold filtered to ‘retain all the beneficial pollens and enzymes’. I’m not entirely sure what this means, but I’ll take Lola’s word for it. Overall, the honey had a wonderful fragrance and it seemed to be of a very high quality.
The Wellness Tea
I’m not a big fan of ‘wellness’ or herbal teas, so I wasn’t sure what ‘d think about these little tea bags. The name was certainly cute, but as an English Breakfast fan I was dubious. ‘Rainbows & Whirlwinds’ was specially selected by London Tea Club and contained Green Mate, Ginseng, Gingko, Lemongrass, Spearmint, Nettle and lots of edible flowers. I drank mine with a teaspoon of the raw Devon honey and found that while it wasn’t mind blowing, it was certainly refreshing!
Lola’s Apothecary is ideal for gifting. All of the products are 100% natural and their packaging is beautiful and recyclable. The price point is on the higher end, but I would argue that this is worth it for a product that is so well made and environmentally conscious. I have been using Lola’s bath oil for a while now and I would swear by it as a wonderful way to relax and unwind.
