Fragrances of Ireland Captures the Irish Essence
Fragrances of Ireland
Fragrances of Ireland is most well-known for their seaside inspired fragrance, the Energy of the Sea, but there is much more to the company than meets the eye at first glance. With St. Patrick's Day just over the horizon, I thought it would be a good time to take a look at a purely Irish company that takes great pride in the products it provides, as well as integrity in the footprint they leave behind.
Living here in land-locked Kansas, the picturesque insert that accompanies Inis Energy of the Sea products, leaves me dreaming of exotic locations. They are located in Ireland, and that alone makes the imagination run wild. In fact, the shores of west Ireland are the very inspiration for their most popular scent. Each product is authentically created and produced in Ireland as well.
They produce many different products, ranging from colognes or perfumes, lotions and soaps, and their new body butter.
Making a Difference
For those of us who are concerned with the welfare of animals, and this should probably be every one, Fragrance of Ireland has two big check marks in the win column. Firstly, they do not test on animals and they are core funders of the Irish Whale and Dolphin Group. They have been associated with helping the group since 2001. The main focus being to help protect these magnificent sea mammals. They spread awareness and even sponsor Whale Watch Ireland (raise your hands if you'd love to go on an adventure there!). I can't think of a better place to whale watch than from the shores of Ireland. It's beautiful to see a company that gives back in such a way to the Irish waters that inspired them. I am a fan of supporting stores that give back, because things like this do matter, and Fragrances of Ireland is certainly doing their part.
Garden of Ireland
A lesser known aspect of Fragrances of Ireland's operation is their Garden of Ireland, which also has several acres of lavender that are harvested each year and used in several of their products. Now that screams fresh! Scientists say bees are on the decline and could near extinction. A scary thought indeed. To help ease the decline, Garden of Ireland has several bee hives nestled in among the lavender plants. The bees help the plants. The plants help the bees. The bees help the environment. Who can argue with that logic? It's a wonderful thing. Lavender. I can almost smell it now. In fact, each July, they have an annual Lavender Harvest party to celebrate. Lavender is often been connected with helping anxiety, depression and sleeplessness to name just a few. Using Garden of Ireland's Lavender Soap certainly sounds like a luxury not to be missed. If it helps you get a good nights sleep, that's just extra.
New for 2017
For 2017, Fragrances of Ireland is introducing a new 7.4 oz large bath bar soap in the coveted Energy of the Sea Fragrance. They have also introduced a 10.1 oz jar of body butter in the same scent.
