Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic began we’re become increasingly aware of one aspect of coronavirus – airborne transmission. The World Health Organisation’s guidance now states that "the virus can spread from an infected person’s mouth or nose in small liquid particles when they cough, sneeze, speak, sing or breathe". In an attempt to cut down on infections from these aerosols face coverings became mandatory in shops in England as well as on public transport to help protect ourselves and those around us.
However, while facemasks might help prevent infection while out and about, they don’t kill the virus and can’t be worn all the time. With government guidance now allowing us to socialise at home again, the answer we need is an air purifier which works like hand sanitiser for the air by disinfecting our environment rather than our skin. While the idea may sound futuristic, technology that can do just that has been around since the 1890s. Enter Ashleigh & Burwood Catalytic Fragrance Lamps, a simple product proven to cleanse air of up to 97% of coronavirus.* To understand Lamps, how they work and how they can protect you and sanitise the air in your home, let’s first learn more about coronavirus and how it can be destroyed.

This week the world is celebrating World Wellbeing Week, an event which aims to bring increased awareness to the many, wide-ranging aspects of wellbeing. In recent times we’ve all become increasingly aware of our own wellbeing, how effected it can be by our environment and how important it is to take to improve our overall wellbeing.
One way to improve your wellbeing is to relax at home with the scent of the transformative essential oils found in our range of Essential Oil Lamp Fragrances.
Bergamot is one of our favourite fragrance ingredients here at A&B. This surprisingly versatile citrus note comes from the essential oil of the bergamot orange, an unusual green relative of the lemons, limes and oranges we’re more familiar with. While you won’t find bergamot in the fresh fruit aisle, you might recognise its flavour – it’s one of the ingredients which go into creating the classic English taste of Earl Grey tea. Aside from its tea-making uses, bergamot is also a highly prized scent in perfumery as it creates as a complex citrus note which pairs well with fresh, floral and aromatic elements for a unique and pleasing effect.

Burning incense is one of the oldest ways to fragrance the home, being used all the way back in the days of Ancient Egypt to keep rooms from smelling bad, and it continues to be used today thanks to its beneficial effects on the mind and mood as well as its beautiful fragrance. For those unfamiliar with this long-lived fragrancing method, incense sticks are made with aromatic materials including essential oils, to scent a room the incense stick is lit and then the flame fanned to a gentle ember which releases a pleasantly fragrant smoke into the air. To burn your incense sticks without mess, you’ll need an Incense Holder (£9.99) to catch any ash. One of the most evocative and relaxing methods of releasing fragrance into the home, there are several benefits to be gained through burning incense.
It’s where we get ready in the morning, where we wash away the day in the evening and where we go to relax with a hot shower or a long bath. But there's no denying the bathroom can also attract unwanted smells from everyday use. Reduce these undesirable odours and help your bathroom smell good with our purifying Fragrance Lamps; the Lamps use an innovative catalytic process to cleanse the air of nasty odour particles rather than masking them with another fragrance.* While they're doing away with unwanted aromas the Lamps can simultaneously replace the smells in the room with a new scent to create your desired atmosphere.
