Our Mother's Day Edit
Handmade Vegan Soap Bars
The Hoyne family have been hand making soaps in Killaloe, Co. Clare since 1996. Their philosophy is to use the finest food grade oils, natural plant-based colour and 100% pure essential oils. All their soaps are free from palm oil and palm oil derivatives and are vegan friendly and cruelty free. They have a truly zero waste ethos and their soaps are made using filtered Irish rainwater with minimal packaging that’s always 100% plastic free. Oh, and they smell amaaaazing! Our most popular soap is Classic Irish Lavender and the Rosewater soap is particularly suitable for mature skin. Individual soaps are from €3.50 each with a gift box of three bestsellers for just €12 Link
Turtle Bag String Bag
These traditional string shoppers are available in a huge range of colours, made from organic cotton and are ethically produced under the Fair Trade banner. These super string bags will hold up to 40kg (that’s 40 bags of sugar!) and are a much greener alternative to plastic bags. Link
A Luxury Wildflower Organic Candle
Who doesn’t love a candle? They smell fantastic and are a simple way to bring instant relation to your home or bathtub. But unless you want Mam to inhale chemicals this year, ensure the candle you buy is 100% naturally scented, made from plant-based wax and is as kind to the planet as it is to our health. Our FieldDay Jam Jar candles are handmade from 100% pure vegetable wax -never paraffin and are always vegan-friendly and cruelty free. Inspired by making wildflower perfume in jam-jars as kids, take a trip down memory lane with our favourite Irish wildflowers and plants captured and poured in a quilted glass jar. Best of all when your candle has finished you have a jar for a bunch of pretty wildflowers. Link

These metal razors are built to last from premium stainless steel with a long sturdy handle. The riffled handle is made of high-quality metal. The riffles always provide a tight grip, which makes the razor ideal for shaving both face and body. Switching to this 100% recyclable and reusable metal razor will drastically reduce plastic waste as well as upping the style stakes in your bathroom. Link.
