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!
After 3 years of searching diligently for Bog Myrtle producers we have found 2 new distillers of Myrica gale pure essential oil. One of our new distillers is based in Canada and 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 have 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.
The dearth of Bog Myrtle on the market over the last 3 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 from Common Myrtle and has different properties.
Bog Myrtle is often called Sweet Gale to differentiate it from the Myrtle family.
This year’s batch of Dandelion Oil is now ready and a beautiful, sunshine infusion it is too. This is the first batch following our move to England and a lowland location with a wonderful rich crop of Dandelions. This is a warm infusion of dandelion flowers from my land, 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.

Current Dispatch Issues
Most shipping services including Royal Mail, Fedex, DHL, USPS have needed to up their game considerably over the last 2 years as COVID-19 caused enormous delays. However, it appears that most postal and shipping services worldwide have responded to the new challenges. The Royal Mail in particular has risen to the challenge very well and almost all first class mail is arriving on time…. Best wishes and stay safe,
Ann Edwards, Blooming Oils
