Kent Combs for Healthy Hair

Get youthful healthy hair with Kent combs

Why are Kent combs and hairbrushes the best? There are so many reasons! Kent’s handmade combs are saw cut and then hand polished and buffed in an effort to create soft rounded teeth. These rounded teeth won’t damage your hair or your scalp. If you’ve ever had damaged hair or scalp, you know that it’s not comfortable or attractive. You can stop the damage cycle now with Kent combs.

What are they made of? Kent’s handmade combs are made from cellulose acetate—which is a non-petroleum based plastic derived from plants. It’s actually been found to create less static in the hair. Additionally, the smooth teeth stimulate the natural oils to create strong, healthy, and shiny hair.

Are you convinced, yet?

Other combs are known as “injection molded combs.” They have razor sharp teeth that can damage the hair cuticle and cause those dreaded split ends. They also feature tiny ridges known as “mold marks”—these can scratch and snag your hair and cause breakage and cuticle damage.

Prevent hair damage with Kent handmade combs from LONDONS Bathecary. G B Kent & Sons Ltd has been manufacturing brushes since 1777. They hold a well-regarded place in the history of brush making. They’ve been granted Royal Warrants for nine reigns.
Can your comb do that?

The Fragrance of Fresh Flowers

Bring the fragance into your home

Here at LONDONS Bathecary, we spend a lot of time thinking about the best ways to keep you smelling beautiful and feeling great. Many of the fragrances here are inspired by the wonderfully gorgeous flowering plants that nature has to offer. Now that spring is here, you might want to start bringing flowers into your home. After all, when you smell great, you want your home to match! Look through the fragrances here at LONDONS Bathecary, and we’re sure you’ll find some floral inspiration.

Lavender

Lavender is prized for its calming effect. A perennial that blooms blue or purple in summer, it can be dried to intensify its scent. It’s the perfect addition to your home.

Hyacinth

Nothing says “spring” like these gorgeous blooms. With a clustered design in blue, pink, or white, hyacinth smells similar to lavender.

Lilacs

These plants grow as bushes or trees, and they bloom in the spring. Their soft sweet smell will fill your home.  Be careful, though.  Lilacs don’t last long once they’re picked.  You’ll get three days out of them, on average.

Roses

Some of our favorite fragrances have notes of rose in them.  Fresh roses in your home have a sweet, musky smell.

Lily of the Valley

Don’t have time to garden? Lily of the valley require minimal care, and they’re perfect for shady areas of your garden.

Choosing a Wedding Day Fragrance

Choose the right fragrance for your wedding day

If you’re getting married this spring, there are so many things you need to consider.  After all, you’ve likely spent months planning your special day.  You have to choose the dress, the flowers, your hairstyle—not to mention your fiancé!  Many women forget about the fragrance they’re going to wear on their big day.  Don’t wear your regular perfume on your wedding day.  Select something that captures the romance, excitement, and happiness of your wedding day.  There’s no better way to feel special than by adding some variety to your fragrance.

Tips for finding a wedding perfume

  • Make a list of all the perfumes that you currently wear, and how you feel when you wear each one.  Your list might include terms like “beautiful,” “flirty,” or “confident.”
  • Make another list.  This next list will illustrate how you want to feel on your wedding day.
  • Then take the time to compare the two lists.  Do some of the perfumes that you already wear make you feel the way you want to feel on your wedding day?  If so, make a short list of those perfumes.
  • It’s best to sit down with a friend and talk about wedding plans.  We have a variety of fragrances here at LONDONS Bathecary that you can choose from.  Whether you’re looking for a rich scent or a light floral, you’re sure to find it here.  Have your friend help you narrow down the list.

Once you’ve found your perfect wedding perfume, you’ll love wearing it again on special occasions.  It will always bring back memories of that wonderful day!

Steps to Sandal-Ready Feet from LONDONS Bathecary

Your feet will be ready for the beach with these great products

Now that spring is on the way, we can’t wait to start wearing sandals!  Unfortunately, our feet have been stuck inside socks, boots, and all matter of other coverings for the past few months.  Not to worry—LONDONS Bathecary has everything you need to get sandal-ready feet in no time.  Be sure to check out our Specialty Items section for the little things you need to feel great.

Steps to Sandal-Ready Feet

  • Exfoliate your feet.  This is comfortable and easy with Hero’s Chiropody Sponge.  You can gently remove corns, calluses, and rough skin with this unique exfoliating sponge.  The black lava friction blog helps to wash away your feet’s imperfections.
  • Apply a hydrating cream like Escenti Cool Feet cream.  Moisturize the skin around your toenails.  They’ve been cooped up so long that they deserve a little pampering!
  • File or trim your bare nails to help maintain their shape.  You can also use Nailoid Results Carnate Buffing Cream and the 3-way nail buffer to ensure that your bare toenails look as good as they possibly can.
  • In order to keep your feet looking great, apply the moisturizing foot cream every day.  Try not to go barefoot at home.  Dust on hardwood floors and chemicals on carpets can actually dry out your feet.

LONDONS Bathecary is here with everything you need to pamper yourself from head to toe.  Check out the other wonderful products in our Specialty Items section!

Freshen Up After a Treadmill Workout

You can take your workout inside with a treadmill

With spring on the way, many of us are beginning to exercise and get fit.  After a workout, you might not always feel your freshest.  You can solve that problem easily with Lightfoot’s Pure Pine athletic soap.  This luxurious soap was once only available in private clubs—but you can get it right here at LONDONS Bathecary.  The pine scent offers an aromatic freshness that’s second to none.  It’s the ideal skin freshener after any sort of athletic activity—like the treadmill!

Treadmill Workout Tips

Treadmills are excellent workout tools.  They can be used for cardio workouts—from walking 3 miles to training for a marathon!  You can control pace and incline, thus providing you with a more targeted workout routine.

If you’re beginning a walking routine, set your treadmill to a comfortable pace, likely between 2 and 4 mph.  Consider this walking workout:  Salk for 1 minute at an easy pace, walk 2 more minutes at a more challenging pace and incline.  Repeat the pattern for your desired workout duration.

If you’re a runner, a treadmill can provide you with a different experience than running outdoors.  To work on speed, run at an easy pace for 10 minutes, then speed up to a pace that is 20 seconds faster than your best 5K time.  Do this for 3 minutes.  Repeat the sequence three times.  Then relax for 5 minutes with easy jogging.

When you’re finished working out, be sure to freshen up with Lightfoot’s Pure Pine athletic soap. You’ll feel great from the inside out!

Great Skin is Simple with Vitamin E

Bring back the skin of your youth with Vitamin E

Get the most out of each day with Simple Regeneration Age Resisting Vitamin E Serum Pads.  While supplies last, these great age-defying pads are 85% off here at LONDONS Bathecary.  Take your beauty regimen into your own hands with this wonderful product.  These pads are infused with a special blend of Vitamin E and other moisturizing ingredients to help fight the signs of premature aging.  You can use them even if you have sensitive skin.

Benefits of Vitamin E

Natural nutrients can stop the effect of UV sunlight on the skin.  The carotenoids, a group of nutrients including beta-carotene and lycopene, Vitamin C, and Vitman E are extremely beneficial.  The benefits from Vitamin E are among the most dramatic for your skin.

One of the benefits of Vitamn E is that it provides your skin with a chemical known as alpha-tocopherol.  This chemical recharges lycopene and other carotenoids so that they can continue doing their job.  Vitamin E helps these nutrients work longer and better—it’s like an extra enhancement.  You can make your skin look and feel better from the inside out with these excellent Vitamin E serum pads.

More skin benefits

Use the Simple Regeneration pads to keep your skin looking and feeling fresh.  But we have one more simple step to help your skin.  Drink more water.  If you use a moisturizing pad or cream on your face, drinking water increases the receptiveness of skin cells to the active ingredients.

Floris Lily of the Valley: Great Flower Inspiration!

When you choose Floris Lily of the Valley perfume, you’ll be able to immerse yourself in its sweet scent.  But how much do you really know about this gorgeous little plant?

Indulge in this floral scent

Lily of the valley in Christian lore

Lily of the valley is mentioned a total of 15 times in the Bible—most often in the Song of Solomon.  In Christianity, it symbolizes the Second Coming of Christ because it blooms so early in the springtime.  It also represents Eve’s tears after she was banished from the Garden of Eden and the Virgin Mary’s tears.  Tears are believed to have turned into this pretty little fragrant flower.

Other folklore

Lily of the valley is thought to protect gardens from evil spirits.  It’s also been used as a charm against witches’ spells.  One of the cutest pieces of folklore is that it’s the flower of fairies—its tiny bells are used as cups for drinking.

Birthdays and weddings

Lily of the valley is the flower of May—and it’s perfect for celebrating May birthdays.  Floris Lily of the Valley perfume is the perfect birthday gift for someone with a May birthday.  Additionally, it’s the official flower of the zodiac sign Gemini.  It’s been a popular wedding flower since the Middle Ages because it represents chastity, purity, modesty, and happiness.
