Moa is one of my favourite organic brands. Having been obsessed with its cult The Green Balm, which solves all those beauty problems you can think of (spots, grazes, rough skin), I’ve now finally got my hands on this Fortifying Green Bath Potion.
The natural skin-care company makes all of its products in England and is inspired by old herbal folklore. There’s definitely something mystical and magical about the forest-green bottle’s design, with its curly, swirly font and pretty illustrations. It also comes in a gorgeous tube with whimsical drawings.
Central to the brand’s products is its signature ingredient – the yarrow herb. It can be found in hedgerows across the UK, although the brand now specially grows its stock in Somerset – harvesting its leaves and flowers each year. The ancient herb has been used for centuries as a natural remedy to heal and repair.
Add a few drops of the potion to your bath and the herbal blend – which also includes peppermint, fennel, fir needle and sweet birch – will work to relieve aches and pains. It has a touch of the apothecary about it and a little drop goes a long way. You emerge post-soak revitalised with soft skin. It’s especially good after a work-out or sports session. Filling the air with a rich herbal scent, it clears the mind and eases muscles. Breathe it in…
