​Our new beauty and wellbeing collection

Posted by The Wares Team on 28th Apr 2022

It's been another exciting month at Wares of Knutsford as we have prepared to launch a brand new collection of glass jars, our beauty and wellbeing range. Our customers have told us that they are particularly interested in glass cosmetic jars and aromatherapy jars; so we've listened, and responded with a really beautiful and exciting range of products that will allow you to invest in your beauty and wellbeing rituals without chemicals, without single-use plastics and without waste or excess cost.

The growing world of wellbeing
The beauty and wellbeing industries are changing fast, and there are a number of big trends that have particularly changed these spaces in recent years. These include:

- A desire for more environmentally-friendly, natural beauty products including a return to glass cosmetic jars and recyclable beauty packaging, and less non-recyclable plastic.
- Demand for 'greener' and natural products that are free from damaging chemicals and endocrine disrupters that are known to affect our hormones. These include parabens, sulfates, SLS and other unwanted chemicals that simply aren't needed for beauty products.
- An interest in more tailored beauty and wellness products that go beyond the idea of anti-ageing at all costs, and which embrace a more holistic idea of beauty and wellbeing for all-round benefit.
- The chance to customise products on a greater scale according to skin type and other preferences.
- A growing interest in alternative therapies such as aromatherapy, reiki, emotional freedom technique, also known as tapping, yoga and much more.
- A newfound interest in making beauty and well-being products from natural ingredients that can be found at home, from our kitchens to the garden.

For example, reiki used to be fairly unknown, but now this powerful technique is being used by people everywhere to experience hands-on healing and to release energy flows within the body. This ancient Japanese technique is known to greatly aid relaxation and emotional wellbeing. And what we feel in our minds will be reflected in our appearance. So the more we can invest in a calm, happy and well mind, the more refreshed, happy and glowing our skin will look, without using chemicals or invasive treatments

Discover the Wares beauty preparation range
We are hugely passionate about natural beauty and holistic wellbeing at Wares, and we're now thrilled to be able to extend our passion for 'greener' living to our new beauty range. You'll find fantastic cosmetic jars and aromatherapy jars of all sizes and shapes to suit each need. With little independent beauty brands springing up across kitchen tables and in garages across the UK, perhaps now is the time for you to experiment with your own homemade beauty potions?

We've spoken in the past about how you can make your own bath salts with Epsom salts, food dye and essential oils, but did you know you can also make your own face and beauty products with natural products such as shea butter, almond oil, avocado or jojoba oil, rose water, glycerine and essential oils? It's a fascinating world and you can learn as you go. Why not begin with a fragranced toner made from witch-hazel and a drop or two of your favourite skin-calming essential oil, and work up to create your own scented healing balm made from shea butter and other nourishing ingredients?

You could make your own aromatherapy candles too from soy or beeswax and your favourite essential oils, such as calming vanilla or energising mint and citrus. Our aromatherapy jars are ideal for decanting and storing your own creations, and for gifting too.

There are so many uses and benefits to making your own beauty products,:

- You can save money compared to buying from a beauty brand
- You will be in control of the ingredients that you use and can avoid any ingredients that you are sensitive to
- You can have fun experimenting and celebrating your natural creativity with interesting projects and experiments
- You can make simple and effective beauty recipes that are perfect for gifting and completely natural
- You could even start your own small beauty business
