Sales assistants Yvonne Lalor and Nicola Hobbs and owner Kathy Rogers test maple water, natural sweets and a vitamin B complex

1. GLASS BOTTLE

Yvonne says: “Flaska glass water bottles are so innovative and clever. My lovely Flaska bottle makes my water taste and feel wonderful.”

2. VITAMIN B

Nicola says: “Terranova B-Complex is definitely my favourite product at the moment, as I can really feel the benefits on my nervous system and energy levels. I love the blend of herbal botanicals in this blend too.”

3. SCRUB BAR

Kathy says: “Nia Naturals Intensive Scrub bar is a fabulous product. It is really handy to use and leaves the skin super soft and smooth. The poppy seeds are firm enough for scrubbing but never scratchy, I love it.”

4. NATURAL SWEETS

Yvonne says: “HUGS (Healthy, Unique, Gorgeous Stuff) natural sweets - yum, yum, yum, what more can I say. These hand-made treats from Wexford are truly delicious.”

5. ESSENTIAL OIL BLEND

Nicola says: “Atlantic Aromatics Frankincense Relaxation Blend is a lovely blend to calm and soothe, and I find it really effective for sore muscles too.”

6. MAPLE WATER

Kathy says: “Drink Maple Pure Maple Water is my go-to drink for re-hydration and an energy boost to solve the afternoon slumps. It has all the benefits of coconut water with a gorgeous, light maple sweetness to its taste. I love that it is just one ingredient straight from the tree.”

The Aquarian, Cahersiveen

Owner Suzan Turan and sales assistants Peter Hill and Colette Porter test turmeric powder, a vitamin D spray, apple cider vinegar and an eco cleaner

1. TURMERIC POWDER

Suzan says: “True Natural Goodness Organic Turmeric powder comes in a 250g resealable bag. Great value for money for a spice that’s now being used so widely due to all its fabulous healing properties.”

2. ECO CLEANER

Colette says: “I love the Method All-purpose Natural Surface Cleaner spray in Pink Grapefruit as it not only lasts a long time, does a really good job but it smells divine. It really makes me want to clean.”

3. VEGAN SANDWICH FILLER

Peter says: “I am a vegetarian and find the taste and texture of VBites Cheatin Chicken Style Slices really good as a vegan sandwich filling.”

4. CIDER VINEGAR

Suzan says: “Braggs Organic Apple Cider Vinegar is just epic on so many levels. It has been for all of my 15 years in business and continues to be. The company has changed nothing and still does what they did in the beginning.”

5. VITAMIN D SPRAY

Colette says: “OneNutrition D3 Max Oral Spray provides 4000iu and has a very pleasant orange flavour. The price is excellent.”

6. HERBAL REMEDY

Peter, Colette and Suzan say: “All of us love the new Pukka Wholistic Ashwaganda herbal formula. As we’re all in and beyond our 50s, it is a great product for energy, focus and a great support for the nervous system, i.e. a good night’s sleep.”

7. ROSE DEODORANTS

Suzan says: “I love two rose deodorants. Urtekram Organic Rose Deodorant is well priced and really beautiful. Dr Hauschka Rose Deodorant is excellent. I truly cannot pick my favourite.”
