Connecting to the scent of the Wild Atlantic Way
Recently at the Foxford Craft Fair a middle aged woman walked up to my table and smelled my Woodbine & Dandelion candle and tears started to roll down her face. She said this smell brings me right back to being on the back of the donkey & cart coming from the bog with my father and he stopped to pick some woodbines and handed them to me.
It's a scientific fact that a familiar smell sends an offalatory reflex to the brain that draws on a memory or emotion linked to that smell. Give your loved ones abroad the gift of the scent of home that will evoke their treasured memories with our wild foraged candles and soaps on http://www.gaolsiar.com/shop.html
Enjoy the benefits of the wild natural plants of Erris in our Wild Foraged soaps. Choose from six different scents, they are Heather & Moss, Dandelion & Woodbine, Nettle & Wild Mint, Wild Gorse & Honey, Wild Rose & Clover and Atlantic Seaweed. Our soaps are a handmade gentle soap blended with the wild foraged botanicals and herbs of Erris, and the oils distilled from the foraged plants. Our soaps can be purchased on our website at http://www.gaolsiar.com/foraged-wild-irish-soaps.html.
