Lucky lucky me! My friends at Eden’s Semilla sent me some wonderful new stuff to review. Knowing some of their products already, I was really excited. I’m actually a real sucker for aromatherapy oils. (Because my mum used them when I was a child, so for example the smell of orange flower oil makes me feel home.)  I use them a lot …

So I’ve been hearing about this farm for ages from my mummy friends. It’s a short drive for a South Londoner, even with a toddler having a grumpy morning.  One lovely July day (when it was 30 C all of a sudden) we finally drove down there and visited it.
