Last 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!
