Made by hand at our Somerset workshop with tradional organic ingredients from the English country garden.
Physick: from the Greek meaning ‘the use and knowledge of nature’.
The ancients had a passion for roses. In old Persia and imperial Rome roses - those most magical, temperamental and delicate of flowers - became the symbol of love. Perhaps it was because of their winter rarity, certainly for their voluptuousness; their sensuous power. We at Great Elm have a passion too: to produce the best. So we have created some superlative physicks that distil the true wonder of roses and their bestowal of a profound sense of well-being and contentment.
We have used the most effective ways of extracting the magnificence of roses for these most glorious physicks - English Rose Body Oil, English Rose Bath Salts and a Wild Rose Balm.
At the heart of each is the most extraordinary Rose Otto we have ever found. It is the pure gorgeousness of a rose garden on a blissfully warm summer's day. Produced in England, our Rose Otto is rare, beautiful, superlative: perfect for an exquisite treat.
Draw a deep and hot bath. Light a candle. Sprinkle our English Rose Bath Salts into the glistening water, sink in, submerge, relax. Stroke a touch of Wild Rose Balm on your temples and lips.

Wild Rose Balm. This is a particularly effective treatment that combats drying, soreness or splitting by feeding the delicate lip tissue with nourishing almond, apricot and rosehip oils. Rosehip oil has strong regenerative, anti-oxidant healing properties. Beeswax (from Gt Elm's bees) is used as a thickener and stabilizer and honey brings its own natural quota of vitamins and minerals to help maintain moisture in tissue. It is well-known that bacteria cannot flourish in either beeswax or honey. We have not added any preservative of any kind to this balm.
