Atlantic Aromatics set up in business in 1985, the same year that Only Natural did, and we’ve been proud to stock their top quality essential oils from the beginning. On Sunday the 9th of July we had a wonderful opportunity to attend a training day given by the company in Wicklow. Michelle, Ruth and Kim popped off for a delightfully scented and sensuous educational day. Here’s Michelle’s account of how they got on.
Joanne Browne, the founder and creator of Jo Browne Natural Solid Perfume will be instore with us on Friday 28th April from 10am to 2pm. Joanne has created three delicious scents for both men and women which we stock here in Only Natural. All perfume recipes are a combination of carefully selected ingredients, organic when economically possible and always natural.
Plus our competition for the month April is to win both a female and male scent of your choice so make sure to keep an eye out on our Facebook page for details how to enter!!
So what’s happening in Only Natural this month??
Do you really want to lessen your environmental impact?
Bamboo, love it, wear it!
Bamboo is an extraordinary plant. Did you know that there is one Japanese species which has been recorded as growing over 3 feet in a day so, if that’s not a renewable resource, I don’t know what is!
So far so good but what about the environmental impact? Don’t worry this is where I think it gets super impressive!
Bamboo requires only one-time planting and very little care and maintenance. In a time when land use is under enormous pressure, bamboo’s high yield per hectare becomes extremely significant.
Bamboo’s extreme growth minimizes CO2 and generates up to 35% more oxygen than equivalent stands of trees. It’s an ally against global warming.
It’s increased use will help to slow down deforestation by providing an alternative source of timber for the construction industry and cellulose fiber for the textile industry.
Some studies indicate that cotton is the largest user of water among all agricultural commodities. Compare bamboo to cotton – a thirsty crop… It can take more than 5,000 gallons of water to produce a bit more than 2 pounds of cotton and 73% of the global cotton harvest comes from irrigated land. Bamboo on the other hand requires only 130 gallons of water to produce 3 pounds and requires no irrigation at all.
Yearly replanting of crops such as cotton leads to widespread soil erosion. Bamboo’s root system, on the other hand, combats soil erosion like no other plant can.
It’s completely biodegradable, having reached the end of its useful life, clothing made from bamboo can be composted and disposed of in an organic and environmentally friendly manner.
Less chemical use. A significant benefit of using bamboo as the organic base for textile fibers is that there is no need for pesticides or fertilizers when growing it. Boody yarn is certified organic by OCIA (The Organic Crop Improvement Association). Bamboo also contains a substance called bamboo-kun – an antimicrobial agent that gives the plant a natural resistance to pest and fungi infestation.
We hope you’ll be tempted to try bamboo wear for yourself. Not only is it stylish and way better for you than synthetics but it’s also one more way to make a positive global difference.
