Alchemy Natural Review: FIG + YARROW.

FIG + YARROW is an artisan line of small-batch, hand crafted organic health and vanity products born of my love affair with botanicals and various earth elements. Their whisperings have guided many unique formulations designed for sensual enjoyment, physical radiance and overall vitality. All the materials I use - from the lovely and vibrant roots, leaves, flowers, minerals and oils to the glass containers the products live in - are selected for beauty, health and purity as they are designed to evoke these qualities for the user.

Fig + Yarrow first caught my eye in an Urban Outfitters store, in Central London. Their packing is clean and minimal, with clear glass and amber glass bottles. I decided I wanted to try out their hand made artisan soap, Lemongrass and Geranium. At £24.99 per 237ml bottle this is a luxury item, but rest assured the smell is powerful and intoxicating, I used it in the shower as a body wash. 

They have four sophisticated scents of their hand and body washes: 
{LEMONGRASS+GERANIUM}
+ Lemongrass and Geranium work together to clear the air and lift the spirit, with the added benefit of keeping away bothersome insects.
{LAVENDER+THYME}
+ Lavender has a fresh, sweet, floral, herbaceous aroma that is soothing and refreshing. As an adaptogen, it assists our innate ability in acclimating to stress and imbalances.
{ROSEWOOD+VETIVER}
+ Thyme essential oil has long been revered for its exceptional antiseptic effect.
{JUNIPER+SAGE}
+ Juniper and Sage essential oils react synergistically for mood calming, air purification + energetic clearing of spaces.

Ingredients: 
{LEMONGRASS+GERANIUM}
saponified oils of: Cocos nucifera (coconut)*, Olea europaea (olive)* and Simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed*; glycerin (vegetable), Cyamopsis Tetragonoloba (Guar) Gum, Aloe barbadensis (aloe) leaf water*, Rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract, essential oils of: Cymbopogon citratus (lemongrass), Pelargonium graveolens (geranium bourbon), Eugenia caryophyllata (clove), Mentha Piperita (peppermint).
