Our seaweed comes from the cold, pristine & gorgeous waters of the Outer Hebrides in Scotland. Due to the testing & standards our supplier practices, we know that the seaweed used in our biscuits comes from unpolluted waters and from ethical & sustainable sources, thereby helping to protect the environment. Why seaweed? Seaweed offers one of the broadest ranges of minerals of any food. It contains virtually all of the minerals found in the ocean which also happens to be many of the same minerals found in blood. It is an especially good plant-based source of iodine, Vitamin C, manganese, vitamins B1, B2 & B6, vitamin A, copper, protein, potassium, zinc, niacin, phosphorus and iron. The polysaccharides found in seaweed have been studied for their anti-inflammatory properties, particularly in the area of osteoarthritis, for their anti-viral activity and their promise in preventing blood clots & lowering cholesterol levels thus contributing to cardiovascular health. Due to the many Wellness based properties of seaweed and the amazing variety of minerals it contains, we use it as in ingredient in TWO of our biscuit flavours, Skin Soothe & Well Being.
Tip of the week
REPEL BUGS NATURALLY... With the summer months now upon us, bugs and ticks are out in full force and can prove to be a menace to all. Did you know that Geranium Essential Oil can be used as a natural bug repellent? We place 3 drops of oil on the inside of our dog's collar and not only does he smell divine, but we find that it really does keep the bugs away. *Please note that essential oil in full concentration can be a skin irritant so it should never go directly on skin. If your dog does not have a thick coat of fur, you can place 3 drops of geranium essential oil in 1 Tbsp. of coconut oil and mix together. You can use the oil directly on the coat, particularly around the neck and where the tail meets the spine. Consider using it on yourself as well! We love local British brands Tisserand (www.tisserand.com) & Baldwins (www.baldwins.co.uk) for essential oils as their products are pure and cruelty-free!
