Long time no blog! I’ve been super busy the past five days and I literally just didn’t have time to write down anything. Work was hectic, but I also got to go to a thermae bath spa for the blog and afterwards I was just too relaxed to do anything! An article about that soon. Today I want to woo you with a British brand that produces all of their products in the UK too (well except for the soaps which are proudly made in Belgium!), using as many organic and natural products as possible. The packaging is super luxurious and bespoke and well.. You know that tickles my fancy. Meet Abahna!
Abahna is a family run business from the UK that started out to offer an alternative to daily grooming, with natural ingredients and oils that awake your senses. Frangipani & Orange Blossom is a very sweet, floral and feminine scent that is warm and soothing at the same time. Frangipani oil (Plumeria) is a very sweet oil derived from the Plumeria flower, its scent is healing for your mind and revitalizes your senses. The essential oil is said to be a huge stress reliever. Orange Blossom oil is sweet, has hints of jasmin and is great against anxiety. These two oils together obviously make a killer combo when it comes to the healing properties.
The eau de parfum was created using the essential oils of frangipani & orange blossom, which explains the uplifting experience when picking this one out as your daily perfume! The scent isn’t super strong, lingers around a morning but needs another application in the afternoon. Hence the pretty purse spray! The body lotion is made with sweet almond oil, cocoa seed butter, organic wild flower honey & shea butter with the perfume of frangipani & orange blossom (not the pure oils). It’s a very soft and light body lotion that is absorbed almost instantly, leaving your skin super soft and smelling great. Combining the perfume with the body lotion is a double win, as it’ll intensify the scent and experience.
Abahna carries a full line of products (candles, shower gels, perfumes, body lotions, bath foams, soaps, ..) in four scents: Lilac Rose & Geranium, White Grapefruit & May Chang, Mandarin & Sicilian Bergamot and Frangipani & Orange Blossom. The mini travel perfume retails for £15.00 or €20.00 and contains 10 ml. The mini body lotion contains 100 ml and retails for £6 or €9 (I think!). The pricing with the body lotion is a little weird as it’d cost you less to buy multiple mini’s as opposed to a full sized one, but as for the rest the pricing seems okay for a mostly organic and bespoke family brand. In Belgium the brand can be bought at Beauty By Kroonen & Brown in Brussels and Place Vendôme in Wevelgem. UK shoppers can head to their website for some shopping. The brand offers great gift packaging, so if you’re buying a gift for anyone loving bespoke toiletry.. Take a peek!
