Summer Solstice, Alban Hefin, Litha

For most this just means the longest day, here are some snippets if you would like to find out more:
  • The colour red
  • Fire and sun
  • The beach - where land, sea and sky meet
  • Longest day shortest night, days will now be getting shorter and heading towards winter.
  • At this solstice the Holly King wins and rule the second half of the year
  • Stonehenge - if you cannot go in person, take a virtual tour: 3D_stonehenge_virtualreality.htm

What is Neal's Yard?

Since starting a few weeks ago many people have asked me what exactly is it.  What is NYRO?
The best way I can describe it is beautiful, natural and organic products that I use on myself and family. 
Not only that, you can join up as a consultant, set your own hours and have lots of fun.

But why make you sit here and read about it all,why not watch a short video ...

For more information visit

Whilst there have a quick look at the shop, some lovely ideas to spoil yourself, friends and family with.

My favourite today is the Eau de Parfum No.2 Rose
Too many times I have treated myself to a perfume and it lasts all of half hour, this seems to last all day and its a lovely background scent. Even my son commented on the nice rose smell!!!

Any questions give me a tweet at the_elderflower or leave a comment below.
