|In the Mood for Love...|
If Pukka Herbs were a person, I think I'd want to marry them, or at the very least, become an annoying groupie/fanatic/hanger on. Now you know I am not a material girl and so I really must mean this... this is love, lust, and everything in between. Why? Let me tell you:
- They make the yummiest, scrummiest, all-round deep-magic-working herbal teas I have ever encountered. My top favourites are Love (because who doesn't want to feel all warm and tingly inside?), Harmonise (for superwomen everywhere), Chamomile & Vanilla (and I've always hated Chamomile so that's saying something), Morning Time (just like a herbal coffee) and Vanilla Chai (simply yum)... oh who am I kidding, there are loads I love and I have them lined up on our windowsill so I can stare at them and choose which one I'd like at every tea break. Gone are the days of "Another Earl Grey please..."
- Thanks to Lucy's Dreaming Aloudness about having 100 husbands, I have recently discovered Pukka's Shatavari as well. This is quite simply a wonder herb which helps to regulate the feminine cycle - which is EXACTLY what my body has needed since having 2 babies in short succession. Since taking it I have had no problems with my periods, far less hormonal moodiness (just ask Father Earthly) and have, in all, felt more balanced generally. I call that pure magic!
- Thirdly, and by no means least or last, Pukka have now embarked on an ayurvedic skincare range. I am always rather cautious about any cosmetics, however natural they are or seem to be because my skin is SUPER fussy. It even complains about pure chamomile and calendula creams. Basically, in the last decade or so, I have found one moisturiser that works for me - one - and I've tried a few. Moreover, I hate using the one my skin seems to like because it's full of chemical nasties. I'd love for once that my skin took to something pure and natural and organic... Well hey ho and whaddyaknow? Pukka have provided it!! How thrilled was I to (a) receive my free Pukka Day and Night cream samples in the post the other day, and (b) to discover that my skin actually LOVES them. Already my complexion is clearer, more soothed and nourished than it has felt in at least a year. And I feel it getting better every day. Pure and utter magic - there is no other explanation.

I can't wait to find out what comes next in the range. Personally, I am hoping for a gorgeous body cream to rival their facial moisturisers.... oh yes, bring it on!
