The Divine Hag...
Is that not the best name for a shop and business you have ever heard?
Driving home on Sunday along the Saltmarket after a lovely birthday tea with Lady Lisa and Lady Sandra, their shop sign caught my eye.
Needless to say I jumped straight onto Google when I got home and this is what I found out…
The Divine Hag is an aromatherapy lifestyle concept.
The three arms of our logo is a representation of the celtic triple goddess – the maiden, the mother and the crone. This feeds into every aspect of our business. We are a woman focussed company, creating scents for women at every stage of life.
I founded The Divine Hag to make organic aromatherapy products that have healing properties, specifically focusing on women’s needs at different stages in their lives, I make scented sprays, candles and salts to combat things like stress, the menopause and to aid sleep, to name a few. I make products for men too. That’s what absolutely gave me the inspiration to change my career, to help people, and also I got tired of just being ill all the time.
The Divine Hag is for me the perfect representation of the rawness of nature and the elemental quality I wish my products to have. It represents age and wisdom and the many years of study and experience that have brought these products to launch.
Of all the wisdom and therapies I have studied aromatherapy had the greatest resonance for me as I have for my entire adult life suffered from severe migraines and many scents can bring on instant pain, I also due to this have an intensified sense of smell, which I decided to use as a gift rather than the curse it had for years appeared, from this I devised aromatherapy sprays, using the properties inherent in the oils and layering them in various dilutions over the years until I reached the optimum mix of aromas for each use.
These sprays can be used in place of many of the chemical sprays and plug ins air fresheners which are often used in the home. These, often artificial, scents, spill out very strong chemicals, which have been found to be detrimental to health, especially for those with chronic conditions such as asthma.
That’s Marilyn talking, the shop founder and a very wise woman by the sound of things.
Their website is full of lots more information and their online shop is filled with tempting treats.
I will need to get myself in there soon. I can’t wait to smell their Scottish Summer spray.
At the moment out here in the countryside all I can smell is cow poo.
