The Radio 2 holistic health expert, Imperfectly Natural Woman author and Herts mum chooses her favourite treatments, therapies and foods in the county
Any day now the winners of the Janey Loves 2016 Platinum Awards celebrating natural products and services will be announced, and it’s super exciting to have so many high quality entries including several from Herts as well as Beds and Bucks based companies.
In the Mother and Baby category there are the gorgeous and unique products from Easy Mom and Baby (easymomandbaby.com) based in Tring. There’s a lovely rose quartz baby bonding bracelet and a snuggly muslin in the shortlist. There’s also the Hitchin company I featured last month, Mamababybliss (mamababybliss.com). They have the lovely Hugs Baby massage oil.
This year for the first time we have a category for therapists. It’s sponsored by the Taymount Clinic in Letchworth, a digestive health clinic that has its own wellness programme. On the shortlist are Susie Gower from St Albans who runs becomingamama.com specialising in helping women with natural fertility. A special mention too for Peter and Tamara Donn who run the EFT training centre. EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique. Tapping on certain ‘acupressure’ points, it can be amazingly powerful for health and emotional issues. See eft-courses.org.uk
In the skincare and beauty category we have on the shortlist the fab natural sponges from Buckinghamshire based Konjac Sponge (konjacspongecompany.com). These are cleansing sponges made from a totally natural food source, Konnyaku, which is a plant native to Asia. There’s even one for cleansing skin made sensitive by tattoos (apparently one in four people under the age of 40 have a tattoo now).
