This issue manager and holistic therapist Majella O’Donoghue and flower essence practitioner and customer advisor Michelle Nilson review natural skincare products, turmeric capsules, krill oil and a vitamin C supplement

1. NATURAL FACE SERUM

Majella says: “Kinvara 24 hr Rosehip Face Serum is my little indulgence. This great Irish product is packed with ultra hydrating goodness for the skin. A little goes a long way to keep your skin feeling silky soft and glowing all day. It smells amazing and is suitable for all skin types. I love also that it is vegan and animal friendly.”

2. VITAMIN C SUPPLEMENT

Michelle says: “I have benefited greatly from using Viridian Ester-C 950mg since autumn last year. I have not had any colds or flus and it’s great because it’s a buffered source of vitamin C for my sensitive stomach.”

3. NATURAL SOAP BAR

Majella says: “I love to use the amazing natural soaps from a local company called Palm Free Irish Soaps. They smell divine and come in a wide array of pretty colours and scents. They are kind to the skin and the planet.”

4. TURMERIC CAPSULES

Michelle says: “Pukka Wholistic Turmeric capsules contain a potent blend of turmeric, black pepper, ginger and spirulina, beneficial for any inflammation in the body. They helped me with a frozen shoulder issue I had for a month. After taking for two days the pain and stiffness was gone.”

5. KRILL OIL

Majella says: “I take Cleanmarine Cardio 40 Plus Daily to support my heart health. I find the capsules easy to swallow with no fishy repeat. It is a great form of omega-3 with added B vitamins, turmeric and K2. A brilliant product from a great Irish company.”

6. B COMPLEX

Michelle says: “Macanta B Complex has become a best seller in our shop as it has consistently been reported to provide noticeably increased energy levels and balanced hormonal levels. I take it regularly as I have quite a busy schedule and it helps me to have the energy to accomplish everything that needs to get done in my day.”

Nature's Hand, Limerick

This issue store manager Linda Barry, assistant manager Svetlana Pavlenko and sales assistants Emer McAloon, Grace O’Mahony, Natalia Ribeiro De Silva, Lorna Gough and Jack Boland review a natural face wash and cleanser, Manuka honey, a liver support and hemp stress aid

1. VEGAN OMEGA OIL

Svetlana says: “Norsan Omega-3 Vegan Oil is a vegan product containing 2000mg of omega-3 per dose. It consists of a unique combination of high strength vegetable algae oil and olive oil and has a pleasant lemon flavour. It can be easily incorporated into the diet by taking directly from a teaspoon or drizzling over a salad.”

2. MULTIVITAMIN

Jack says: “I love Vibracell. It is brilliant for anyone needing energy and extra vitamins. It is so easy to take as a drink first thing in the morning and it tastes great. I really notice a decline in energy levels when I forget to take it!”

3. FACE AND BODY MASK

Natalia says: “I love Argital Argiltubo, a 100 per cent natural face and body mask. It is so convenient to use. It renews and smooths the skin, leaving it refreshed and luminous thanks to the life-giving forces of Argital green clay, gamma linolenic acid and silica.”

4. LIVER SUPPORT

Linda says: “New Vistas Glutathione Complex is a fantastic liver support. It combines glutathione with L-cysteine, horsetail and quercetin protecting the body against damage from environmental toxins, heavy metals and free radicals.”

5. HEMP STRESS AID

Grace says: “Hempceutix is fantastic. It gives great relief for stress, anxiety and chronic arthritis. The capsules are so easy to take and it is full spectrum CBD rather than CBD isolate.”

6. NATURAL FACE WASH

Jack says: “Dr. Maher Face Wash is great for general use, but I also use it for shaving. Shaving blades last much longer when using chemical-free products. The base is seaweed and essential oils and all ingredients are 100% natural.”

7. CLEANSING WATER

Lorna says: “I love Sukin Micellar Water because it is infused with aloe vera and chamomile. It’s great to take off make-up without being too harsh on the skin. It is so quick and easy to use. It is completely free from sulphates.”

8. MANUKA HONEY

Emer says: “Manuka honey is a powerful medicine! I cannot believe how effective it is. I go for high strength Manuka Health MGO 550+ Manuka Honey to alleviate issues such as acid reflux, mouth and stomach ulcers, strep throat and to boost the immune system.”

9. INSPIRATIONAL BOOK

Linda says: “Agnes McGuinness’s Healing, 45 Year Journey is a great book! In it Irish naturopath Agnes McGuinness discusses her passion for natural tonics and remedies and how they can contribute to improved feelings of wellness and vitality.”
