What's the most thoughtful gift we can offer to the incredible mothers in your lives?

I've discovered that the answer lies within the harmonious blend of nature's finest ingredients, carefully crafted into our luxurious soap bars. These bars not only cleanse but also nourish, thanks to the remarkable properties of avocado oil, olive oil, and shea butter.

Here's a glimpse into the skincare wonders they hold:

  1. Avocado Oil: Beyond its culinary prowess, avocado oil is a skincare superhero. Enriched with vitamins and essential fatty acids, it deeply moisturizes the skin without clogging pores. My soap bars, infused with avocado oil, offer a gentle cleanse that leaves skin feeling soft and hydrated - perfect for the busy mums who deserve a moment of indulgence.
  2. Olive Oil: Like a Mediterranean breeze, olive oil brings a touch of luxury to your daily skincare routine. Its antioxidant-rich formula nourishes and protects the skin, ensuring a radiant complexion with every use. Our soap bars, enriched with olive oil, provide a pampering experience that uplifts the senses and leaves skin feeling refreshed and revitalized.
  3. Shea Butter: Straight from the heart of Africa, shea butter is nature's gift to dry, thirsty skin. Renowned for its moisturizing properties, it locks in hydration and soothes irritation, making it an essential ingredient in our soap bars. Busy mums can rejoice knowing that each lather envelops them in a cocoon of comfort, leaving skin supple and glowing.

 This Mother's Day, you can show your appreciation for the special mums in your life with a gift that speaks volumes about your care and thoughtfulness. These luxurious soap bars, crafted with love and enriched with these precious ingredients, promise a spa-like experience in the comfort of home.

Stay tuned as we unveil our exclusive Mother's Day promotions and offers, designed to make honouring mum a truly memorable occasion.

Embracing Sensitive Skin: My Journey into Natural Skincare

Posted on February 19, 2024 by Melanie Brown


Let me share a little story close to my heart—a journey that led me to embrace the beauty of sensitive skin and the art of natural skincare.

It all started with frustration. Frustration over skincare products that promised the world with their beautiful packaging, only to leave my skin feeling stripped of its natural oils, tight, and dry—almost ashy. Can you relate?

But it wasn't just about me. When my precious children came into the picture, two of whom struggled with dry skin conditions, it became a mission. Prescription creams offered fleeting relief, but witnessing their discomfort, those tears of itching and inflammation, broke my heart.

That's when I turned to crafting my own skincare solutions. No chemicals, no preservatives—just pure, skin-loving goodness. And oh, the joy on my kids' faces as their skin found solace in these nourishing ingredients—it's a feeling beyond words.

Soap making became my sanctuary, a place where I wielded control over what goes into each bar. It's about more than just cleansing; it's about nurturing and hydrating the skin without compromise.

Now, as I continue this journey with Mel's Little Luxuries, I'm curious—what ingredients speak to you? What do you seek in skincare beyond the promises of fancy packaging? 

If you care about the ingredients you use on your skin, check out Mel's Little Luxuries for gorgeous body care which is made with love and care.

Enhancing Mindfulness and Meditation with Handmade Aromatherapy

For busy mums, finding moments of tranquillity in the midst of a hectic schedule is vital. One powerful way to deepen your mindfulness and meditation practice is by integrating handmade aromatherapy products, like scented candles or essential oil blends. Here's how you can do it:

1. Setting the Scene for Meditation: Create a serene space where you can meditate without interruptions. In this space, include a handmade candle or an essential oil diffuser. The act of lighting a candle or setting up the diffuser signals your brain that it's time to transition into a peaceful state.

2. Choosing the Right Scents: Different scents have various effects on our mood and mental state. For relaxation and stress relief, lavender and chamomile are excellent choices. If you need a mental uplift, consider citrus or peppermint. Handmade products often offer unique and complex scents, providing a more personalized experience.

3. Mindful Engagement with Scents: As you begin your meditation, take a moment to focus on the aroma. Notice how it fills the room and how it makes you feel. This practice of mindful observation helps anchor you in the present moment, enhancing the meditation experience.

4. Deepening Relaxation: Allow the scent to be a guide as you delve deeper into relaxation. As you focus on your breathing, imagine the calming scents as a gentle wave washing over you, releasing tension and bringing a sense of peace.

5. Post-Meditation Practice: After your meditation, take a few minutes to sit in the lingering fragrance. This helps in transitioning gently back to your daily activities, carrying the calmness and clarity from your meditation with you.

Integrating handmade aromatherapy products into your meditation routine is not just about adding a pleasant fragrance; it's about creating a multisensory experience that enhances your mental and emotional well-being. This simple practice can be a luxurious and therapeutic addition to your self-care routine, making each meditation session a special retreat in your day.

The Secret To A Perfect Valentine's Day

Posted on January 22, 2024 by Melanie Brown



What does Valentine’s Day mean to you? 

As Valentine's Day approaches, our minds often drift to grand gestures and extravagant gifts. But is that truly what this day of love is all about?

This year take a moment to appreciate the smaller, more intimate expressions of affection – the kind that resonates deeply within your heart.

Imagine a cosy evening at home, away from the crowded restaurants and the pressure of making everything 'just perfect'.

Picture this: soft music playing in the background, a warm, ambient glow from flickering candles, and the comforting embrace of your loved one. Isn't this a more heartfelt celebration of love?

Valentine's Day, at its core, is about showing care and love in ways that truly matter. It's about creating a haven where you can relax, connect, and cherish each other's company. What better way to enhance this experience than with something crafted with as much love and care as you put into your relationship?

That's where my natural soaps come in. Made with the finest, natural ingredients, each bar is a work of art, an ode to love in its purest form. These soaps aren't just a cleansing product; they are an experience – a way to pamper yourself and your loved one, to make your evening at home feel like a luxurious retreat.

Enriched with soothing aromas and gentle textures, the Mel’s Little Luxuries soaps are perfect for a romantic, relaxing evening. As you bask in the tranquil ambiance you've created, let my soaps be a reminder of how the simplest things can be the most meaningful. This Valentine's Day, celebrate love in its most authentic form – celebrate with the gift of natural beauty and care.

Remember, the secret to a perfect Valentine's Day lies in the love you share and in the simple moments that you turn into cherished memories. Let Mel’s Little Luxuries natural soaps be a part of that memory, embodying the spirit of Valentine's in every lather.
