Wash Your Hands! Nourish Your Hands! Moisturise the NHS!

Important current advice by both the World Health Organisation (WHO) and our NHS is to wash our hands properly and frequently, and use sanitiser when out and about.

Soap has the power to wash away the mircobes, whilst sanitiser directly kills microbes.

Both are important ways to stop the transport and transfer of microbes in this crucial time.

Solidarity in these times can take many forms. One way is through upholding high personal hygiene standards. Unfortunately the chemicals that this might involve take a toll on our skin, often leaving it dry, sore and cracked. This in its own way, can have negative impacts on our health.

Moisturising is an important full stop in the hygiene process!

We’ve noticed we are making more of our Organic Hemp Seed Moisturising Oil… are you finding our moisturising oil helpful?

Why is our Organic Hemp Seed Moisturising Oil both Relaxing & Energising good for this…

  • Hemp seed oil is deeply moisturising and encourages new cell growth.
  • 100% natural, organic, and non-comedogenic, meaning that the oil allows the skin to breathe and doesn’t block the pores.
  • It contains vitamins A, D and E which help prevent premature ageing and skin disorders, by providing nourishment to all types of skin.
  • The unique essential fatty acids found only in hemp seed oil have therapeutic effects.

the nhs is a public service

Nowhere is hygiene more thorough than among our frontline workers, working around the clock to treat patients while minimising the spread of this virus. After a recent stint in hospital (welcoming a new baby to his family and our community!), one of our members noticed how dry the hands of maternity ward staff are becoming. 

We wholeheartedly believe that the NHS is a public service, not a charity, and that it is the duty of our government to properly fund this indispensable service. We worry that recent public fundraisers to provide PPE for frontline workers are needed only as a result of this woeful underfunding. While we do not accept this underfunding, we do recognise that as individuals and communities, we can try and fill the gaps.

Whilst clapping at 8pm on Thursdays are a great way to bring attention and show our support. We hope that the conversation around this continues. Clapping alone is not going to #SaveTheNHS!

Inspired by mutual aid groups and volunteer networks working hard, up and down the country to support vulnerable people, we are dropping off over £350 worth of our hemp seed moisturising oil to Royal Berkshire Hospital local to us.

And in this spirit, we will also be offering NHS Staff one third off our moisuristing oil or 15% off everything online. Thank you NHS!
