every day is a school day

Well hello there folks.

It seems an age since I last posted.

Here at Merionwen Towers it's all go. Things are hectic and fun packed as usual.

Not only am I constantly stirring the lotions and potions, but I am also embarking and the great adventure of education.

I've always loved learning new things. Indeed, my dear and wonderful Mummy Merionwen has endlessly referred to me as the eternal student. A moniker I am more than happy to live up to. Of course, I've not gone completely barmy and started to study quantum physics or Art History (although this is where my A-levels lie).

I am undertaking a BSc (hons) course in Herbal Medicine. This will further my existing qualification in this field. I'm just reaching the end of the first term and I am loving it. It is so very very in depth, studying subjects like biochemistry, pharmacology and other such ologys...

I also do one day a fortnight of clinical practice at Lincoln Uni's training clinic. Now for a quick plug...If you are in the area and wish for a consultation please make an appointment. The number is 01522 886113. All the consultations are free and any medication is very reasonably priced.

I hope to follow this up with an MSc in the same subject and the possibility of a teaching qualification. I would love to be able to share my knowledge on a professional basis. Of course I also wish to use my love of herbs in my lotions and potions.

We'll all be scented like the most delicious garden if Merionwen has her way :)

seven days to go

Category: products

Hello there,

Today at Merionwen Towers I am busy filling the virtual shelves with non virtual goodies. After all, shop launch is in a mere seven days. I have so much to do. I am elated, daunted and excited all at the same time. In just a week you will see the shiny new shop tab on the main page title bar and can brows the ethical natural goodies to your heart's content.

The techie team is beavering away making it all shiny and new. We are aiming for easy to navigate, with a fresh and natural look.

Staying within the parameters of the four "ranges"; vintage, country garden, eastern spice and botanics.

The idea is to be able to mix and match the scents and themes to provide a wholesome package that you can style to you own needs. You could mix vintage rose body soap with the eastern flavours of turkish delight lip balm. Or the fresh country garden aromas of lemon and peppermint body and face spritz can enhance the lingering zip of melissa and mint salt scrub. The choice is yours.

In good time there will be many goodies on offer.

However, there will also be a variety of services too.

You could book in for a skincare consultation or an aroma fuelled hot stone massage. We will even be offering a service to have your own range of skincare tailored to your own needs. comprising of skincare routine recommendations, advice upon the nutritional aspects of good skincare. Young and healthy skin is supported by a good diet and you will see the external effects of internal care. and or course you can have your own specialised products formulated and supplied.

In the fullness of we will also be bringing to Merionwen the therapies and holistic services we have to offer. Although, I do currently offer deep tissue massage, swedish massage, aromatherapy massage, phytotherapy consultation, skincare consultation, these are yet to be added to the website. If you are interested in any of these therapies please feel free to contact me through the contact page or directly to my e-mail, helen@merionwen.co.uk.

There is so much to do in the next seven days but you never see a miserable busy bee :)

Health and happiness

Merionwen x
