Lemon Balm grows to 70–150 cm tall with oil reach leaves that a gentle lemon fragrance that will come off onto your hands when crushed. Melissa officinalis is in the mint family of Lamiaceae which reflects this high oil content and naturally fragrant quality. The white summer flowers attract bees, hence the genus name Melissa (Greek for ‘honey bee’) whilst high doses of purified lemon balm extracts have been found to be effective in the relief of stress, producing increased calmness and reduced alertness.
HOW TO USE
Light the end of the cone and burn for around 15 seconds blowing the ember until red hot, place in the heart of your home in either a hallway or a landing to allow the fragrant smoke to disperse. Use the lid or a heat proof surface to burn each cone on. Burning time: 15 min approx. Scent longevity: 2-4 hours (in a medium size room)
Als eine von zwei Firmen ist es Haeckels erlaubt an der Küste Englands Seegras zu pflücken. Die Margate’s Coast ist ein 14 Meilen langes Kalkriff aus der Jura Zeit. Neben Seegras werden im Clifftop Lab von Haeckel's noch andere Pflanzen und Kräuter zu natürlichen Hautpflegeprodukten, Shampoos und Parfüms verarbeitet. Basierend auf der griechischen Thalassotherapie entstehen hier wunderbare Produkte für Körper und Geist. Ohne Tierversuche und mit ganz, ganz viel Liebe.
EN: Haeckels was founded in 2012 by volunteer beach warden and coastal enthusiast Dom Bridges.
Disillusioned by the production ethos of many larger skin care companies Dom wanted to create simple hand crafted products that showcased the surrounding coasts natural ingredients in the hope that the products themselves would then promote Margates heritage of healthy coastal living.
When Haeckels was just starting out Dom would collect seaweed and local botanicals along the Margate coast and bring them bring back to his family kitchen to experiment. Dom’s wife Jo soon said it was time to get a proper Lab and turn a passion into a business as every saucepan in the kitchen was starting to smell like a skin care product. Taking his wifes advice he acquired the Lab on Cliff Terrace in 2013 where more product formulas were developed to complete the range. The company has now grown; taking on members of staff whilst still playing an active part in the local community by organising beach cleans and taking part in marine conseravtion surveys.
