Wee find: Andrea Garland’s natural balms

A few months ago I was mooching around Greenwich market and stumbled across Andrea Garland’s range of natural balms in vintage tins, compacts and pill boxes.

I really like her organic lip balm made with sweet almond oil, cocoa butter, beeswax and vitamin E, but she also does a terrific sore muscle rub and a body balm. The best bit is that she does refills at a fraction of the original price – so you get to keep the original pretty tin.

These days you can find her at Brick Lane’s Upmarket and Liberty in London, but she’s also got an online store here.

    How nice to find something really creative in Greenwich market. I spent my teens lurking round the market, but haven’t been for a while – must try it again!

    Fabhat – I know, I was thrilled, but she’s since moved on to Brick Lane’s Upmarket. xx
