    We might be experiencing a fair few April showers in the UK, but now is the perfect time to establish salad crops in your garden, such as basil, mint, rocket, lemon balm and lettuce. One of our favourite greens to grow is fennel, and its shoots can be brought on with a cloche covering for a little extra warmth. Fennel is great for getting rid of toxins in the body, and we love to use it in our formulas too as an alternative to harsh cleansing agents. What’s your favourite herb or vegetable to grow? 📷 @pinterest

    It’s #FamilySafetyWeek, and while we may think about the dangers of the outside world, it’s also important not to forget about how to be safe within the home too.
    One of the key topics this year is household poisons. We want to shine a light on this as it’s something we’ve always been passionate about. We created our TINCTURE products using all-natural formulas and active botanical oils, meaning that the home is clean and safe for the whole family. The house isn’t just a place to eat and sleep for children – it’s a magical space just waiting to be explored!
    Cleaning the home with toxic ingredients can mean that your child has residue of this on their hands, on their face, in their mouths, etc… Be mindful when cleaning and choose the most natural products to protect your home, and your family. 📷 @pinterest

    Did you know that one of the key ingredients in TINCTURE products is fir? There are many species of fir, be we love to use Siberian fir as it has the longest needles and offers the highest amount of antibacterial oil. Fir oil has been much used in the past centuries for is beneficial action on the respiratory system, dealing with shortness of breath and asthma. It is also said to relieve tiredness and aching limbs, which is why fir tea is great for treating cold and flues.

    When it comes to cleaning products, we expect them to do one thing… clean! Whilst this may be true in terms of killing bacteria and making your home smell fresh, a lot of household cleaning products may be doing more harm to your health than you could imagine.
    A study reports that in the year 2000, cleaning products were responsible for almost 10% of toxic exposures in the US. When we think about the amount of air pollution coming from vehicles, industrial plants, greenhouse gasses, etc, this statistic is incredibly shocking. Cutting down on the toxic chemicals in your home doesn’t mean that you’re neglecting bacteria. By using the right formulas, we’ve created a range of cleaning products that are safe, environmentally friendly and include bacteria-repelling botanical oils.
    No toxins, no waste, no chemicals: just pure and simple cleaning at its finest 💫

    Bergamot is the herb that’s responsible for the floral qualities in Earl Grey tea, but it’s also widely used for its health benefits. The name ‘bergamot’ could also be derived from Berga, a Spanish city that later transported the trees to Calabria (Italy) where more than 90% of the world's bergamot production comes from. Italian folklore details its primary uses for fever, skin and respiratory infections, as well as an aid for healing minor wounds. The chemical composition of bergamot essential oils has been widely investigated, and a 2007 study found bergamot to have both antibacterial and antifungal activity. ✨ We use the herb in our Glass and Mirror TINCTURE to provide incredible shine whilst shielding the home from bacteria.

    If you believe in a waste-free society, you’ve probably tried to recycle your leftovers into a tasty soup, shower more often that you bathe and take your old clothes to charity shops… but did you know that you can also give more life to your herbs? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    Of all food hacks, drying your own herbs is the easiest. When herbs are dry they’re safe from bacteria and mould, and will keep their taste for 6-12 months. Our favourite way to dry herbs is to tie the stems in bundles and hang them in a warm, dry spot. Wrap the leafy parts of the herbs in muslin or a paper bag with several holes, and tie at the neck. Herbs can take between 1-7 days to fully dry, depending on temperature. They can then be removed from the muslin and saved in glass jars until your cooking requires them. Easy, fresh and economical 🌿✨

    Have you heard of Ayurveda? Thousands of years before modern medicine, Ayurveda, was one of the world’s most powerful health systems. In literal terms, it means the 'science of life' (ayur= life, veda= science or knowledge). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    One of the basic principles of Ayurveda is to live in tune with nature. When you’re balanced, the mind and body should only desire what nurtures its health - good food, restful sleep, natural aromas. TINCTURE products are based on the knowledge of monasterial gardens, where monks would grow, nurture and live from their land. It is this natural balance of the environment that inspires us everyday, and why we only use all-natural botanical oils in any of our products. #TINCTURELondon 📷 @pinterest

    Last month, we published a new article on EVOKE about the culture of fasting. The Greek philosopher, Pythagoras, was amongst many who celebrated fasting as a way to enjoy physical and spiritual regeneration. We use Pythagoras’ belief of “eightness” as our eight TINCTURE pillars, to ensure that our products offer the same safety, steadfastness and balance as Pythagoras’ theory. If fasting is good enough for our favourite philosopher, we thought it was worth a try… but today the fast is over, and we’ll be whipping up batch of our favourite vegan pancakes with a drizzle of maple syrup, chopped banana and crushed almonds.

    Have you ever suffered a headache after bleaching the bathroom or deep-cleaning the kitchen? Corrosive cleaners might give great results on your work surfaces, but many of these highly toxic ingredients (including chlorine, bleach and ammonia) can be inhaled in the process and cause irritation to the eye, nose, lungs and throat. Fragrances in cleaners often mask these ingredients, but the formulas used to add a ‘pleasant’ smell to your cleaning products are often not very pleasant at all! Take the natural approach with your cleaning and choose environmentally friendly products that contain ‘real’ ingredients - such as active essential oils - for no-risk deep cleaning.

    It’s Good Friday, and whether out of religion or habit, it’s tradition to eat fish 🐟
    Studies have shown that the fatty acids and omegas in fish may improve your overall health and brain function. As our bodies age, we produce less docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), a complex fatty acid that build membranes in the brain cells. Eating lots of oily fish rich in omega-3s (such as salmon, sardines, tuna and mackerel) can increase the production of DHA and even ward off conditions such as Alzheimers. Our top tip this Good Friday is to choose sustainable fish to reduce your impact on the environment and secure the future of our seas. @mcs_uk have some great tips on their website for sourcing sustainable seafood 🌊🐠

    Lavender is known for its soothing scent, but the name itself actually derives from the Latin verb, ‘lavare’, meaning ‘to wash’. Ancient Romans used it for healing wounds, curing headaches and in their washing rituals thanks to its natural antiseptic properties. Why not try adding a few drops of essential lavender oil to your bathwater before bedtime to relax your body and mind?
    We love to use Lavender in our Glass and Mirror TINCTURE as its botanic properties naturally repel insects and keep your home feeling (and smelling) fresh.

    Many Buddhists believe that a person’s external environment is a mirror of their inner being. We think this so too. A person’s inner state can often mirror their external actions (e.g. if a person is overwhelmed, their environment will often be cluttered). The obvious way to combat this is to clean and organise, but in order to reduce stress levels further, why not try being mindful in the process? Mindfulness and meditation can work wonders when cleaning because you are paying attention to each moment in a calm and non-judgmental way. This has been proven to significantly reduce everyday stresses - plus, you get a clean house along with a clear mind #TINCTURELondon

    Friday night plans... There's nothing better than a clean bathroom, especially when you've set time aside for a long soak. Our Bathroom TINCTURE is infused with Siberian Pine, cedar and eucalyptus to enhance wellbeing.

    The medicinal and nutritional qualities of Siberian pine date back in the 15th and 16th centuries when merchants brought the nuts and delicacy oil to England, Italy, Norway and other countries. Pine nut milk was widely used in Swiss spas in the 18th century as a very effective treatment for tuberculosis and kidney infections. Pine nut oil can also be applied to the skin in cases of eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and dryness.

    It’s World Water Day, and we don’t think there’s anything quite as important as H2O. This year’s theme is Nature From Water, which makes us think about the nature-based solutions to the water challenges we face today.
    We might think about toxicity in the home, but what do you think happens to household cleaning liquids when they disappear down the drain? Toxic chemicals such as chlorine, bleach and ammonia can travel along sewage systems and into nearby waterways, therefore contaminating fresh water and, potentially, fish and wildlife. The only way to protect our environment is to take action now. We firmly believe in protecting the planet, and we’re hoping to make a difference . That’s why we don’t use any harmful ingredients in our formulas - only all-natural, cruelty-free ingredients derived from nature. Our TINCTUREs are safe on the home, safe on the family and safe on the environment. Let’s say YES to #crueltyfreecleaning and celebrate #WorldWaterDay together 💦

    Cleaning is an important aspect of spiritual practice for Japanese Buddhist monks. This stems from the idea that the self doesn’t exist in isolation – only as part of its environment. By tending to our environment, we are tending to ourselves. They also see de-cluttering as an important part of throwing away the past and existing in the here and now.
    ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    Focusing on the present is central to the idea of mindfulness, and Buddhist monks incorporate mindfulness techniques into their cleaning rituals. Homing in on what’s going on around us shifts our perspective, and can take us out of the thought patterns that might cause us worry.

    Tomorrow marks the first day of Spring, which means it’s time to begin cleaning and cleansing our homes ready for the warmer months. But before you stock up on products do be conscious of what you buy. Many cleaning products out there are full of harmful chemicals, that really aren’t safe to use in your home or around your children. A recent study warned that “some cleaning products are as bad for your lungs as smoking 20 cigarettes a day” 😱 We can assure you that the complete range of TINCTURE products are all natural, and completely safe to be used in the home. Our main motivation behind starting @tincturelondon was to create a safe environment for all the family to live ✨

    Cloves are one of our favourite ingredients as they're renowned for their antibacterial properties. Clove essential oil also has a high antioxidant concentration, which means it's great for maintaining healthy skin.
    Rich in potassium, sodium, phosphorus, iron and Vitamins A and C, cloves help to naturally nourish the skin to leave it clean, soft and protected - which is exactly why we use them in our Handwash and Handlotion TINCTURES.

    We all understand the power of a good nights sleep 💤
    Today is #WorldSleepDay, and studies have shown that scents around the home could be stealing precious hours from your beauty sleep. Plug-in air freshers, home fragrances and cleaning products can trigger a stuffy nose and result in a restless night. Around 3,000 chemicals are used to create fragrances in generic cleaners, and these toxins can be very harmful to your health and sleep patterns. By choosing products that are all-natural and contain real, botanical oils instead of synthetic fragrances, you're not only helping the environment and your health, you may also get a better nights sleep too 🌙 #TINCTURELondon

    Researchers in Norway have announced that some household cleaning products can have the same impact on your health as smoking 20 cigarettes a day. Isn't that crazy? Wednesday is #NoSmokingDay, and we're in complete support of the movement. Smoking is incredibly damaging to the lungs, not to mention the skin, teeth and nails. We all know the dangers of smoking, but the harmful effects of cleaning products is something that fewer people tend to think about.
    Toxic chemicals in cleaning products can cause damage to the airways day after day, which quickly accelerates the rate of lung function decline. That's why we only use all-natural active botanical oils to make the home a cleaner, safer place for the whole family ✨🍃

    The celebrations of mothers and motherhood can be traced back to the ancient Greeks and Romans, who held festivals in honor of the mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele. We believe that motherhood is celebrated every day, whether in the form of a slobbery kiss before bedtime, a tidy hand clasped in yours as you walk down the street or a simple cup of tea on a Sunday morning.
    Happy Mothers Day 🌿✨
