New and in Stock

We’ve Moved!

Blooming Oils has moved. Having left our remote Welsh hill farm, we are now safely established in our new location near the Shropshire hills. Whilst not as remote as previously we still have no close neighbours and can maintain a high level of bio-security. We can, however, still access a Post Office so your orders can be dispatched as safely and securely as before…

Bog Myrtle is back in stock!

Following 3 years of searching diligently for Bog Myrtle producers, a couple of years ago we found 2 new distillers of Myrica gale pure essential oil. One of our new distillers is based in Canada and is producing the best Bog Myrtle essential oil that we have ever found – sweet, strong and almost medicinal in fragrance, it analyses as extremely pure. And it is, of course Certified Organic.

All of the above means that it is also expensive so we found another distiller – this time from France. This is a conventionally produced distillation and, whilst not the same quality as the Canadian distillation, it is a good commercial product at a more inviting price.

This year we have found a 3rd distiller, this one is Indian and collects botanicals from the Indian sub-continent and beyond. The Bog Myrtle produced by this distiller is conventionally produced and of good quality.

The dearth of Bog Myrtle on the market over the last 8 years has led to some vendors selling Common Myrtle (Myrtus communis) as Bog Myrtle. Please don’t be fooled by this. Bog Myrtle is a different genus (Myrica gale) from Common Myrtle and has different properties.
Bog Myrtle is often called Sweet Gale to differentiate it from the Myrtle family.

Dandelion Oil

We have some fine crops around us and in fact the field just over our fence produces 7 acres of Dandelions. This year’s crop was very interesting and due to the late spring and cold, rainy weather has produced a very strong oil which has more of the “bitter” undertones than we are used to from this land. It has proved very easy to blend with other oils, though and is proving to be a good compensation for the lack of sunshine! From gathering at the best time to “ready for sale” it takes 6 weeks to produce our pure organic Dandelion Infused Oil – so it’s ready now… This is a strong infusion of dandelion flowers, picked in full sunshine so that the flowers are at their best, infused into Organic Sunflower oil (Helianthus annuus) and creating a wonderful massage oil. For SAD sufferers it is sunshine in a bottle.

While Stocks Remain

As Blooming Oils has now moved from Wales into England, some of our Charm Necklaces may become unavailable as we collect our botanicals from our land and close neighbourhoods. Previously we were at 1,000 feet in the Cambrian Mountains and we are now on the Severn plain near Shrewsbury. As a result, the botanicals available to us will be different. We will keep you informed when stocks of particular Charms run low.

Wish Vials

We have also introduced a new range of Wish Vials. These are beautifully crafted small vials containing the essential oil or essential oil blend of your choice. Worn around the neck on a matching chain, they are available in silver or rose gold.
