Essential Me – an update

1615159_823043667722589_1517207950_nLast year I did a blog post about Essential Me.  The company started as part of a Transition Year project and have gone from strength to strength.  They produce aromatherapy beauty products such as bathbombs, soap, lip balm, handcream, relaxing oils and scents etc. which can all be used as great gift ideas or general daily use. All of the products are handmade and produced, and they are all approved by a qualified aromatherapist. I can highly recommend them, they smell gorgeous. All the products are produced in Sligo as well.

Essential Me has expanded and were placed 2nd in the Student Enterprise Awards and got an award from the Bank of Ireland. The products are on sale every Saturday in the Benbulben Craft Market, The Dome Longford, Handmade Crafts Store Belmullet and Greengate Flowers in Collooney and online on facebook

The company also got through to the all Ireland finals of Junior Dragons Den out of 250 applicants, I can’t reveal if they will be on the tv show yet but fingers crossed!

  1. Wow! That’s absolutely fantastic news, Val! I’m delighted for Emer! I see and chat with Emer and her very proud parents Roisin and Tom every Saturday at the Ben Bulben market, where we are nearby ‘neighbours’, marquee/vendor stall-wise. Emer and her Essential Me products have really gone from strength to strength, and it’s brilliant. 🙂

    I agree with you about their products – absolutely wonderful hand and face creams, soaps, body lotions – all natural, all soothing on the skin, and each and every product of theirs has such a heavenly fragrance. I’ve fallen in love with their chocolate lip balm, especially.

    Fair play to you Emer, and well done! Being selected as one of the finalists for Junior Dragon’s Den is quite an achievement, and I’m so delighted for you. – June
