The recent hot weather has brought with it a welcome opportunity for a spot of sunbathing and the first barbecue of the year, but, as many allergy sufferers know, the summer sun comes with less-than-pleasant consequences. The start of the season also brings about an increase in naturally occurring irritants, especially the pollen released by flowers, grass and trees. Even by staying inside, it can be hard to avoid allergens. Some of the most common allergies have been nicknamed home fever, where symptoms are triggered by airborne irritants like dust mites and mould spores that are commonly found in the home. Unlike hay fever, these allergens and the resulting symptoms can affect sufferers all year round. And that's where the Fragrance Lamp comes in. Like the name suggests, Fragrance Lamps are a unique way to uplift the home through scent - but that's not their only benefit, especially for those battling home allergens.

Well be celebrating 25 years next year and we want to ring in our big birthday still looking our best. The Ashleigh & Burwood team have been hard at work behind the scenes redesigning everything from our logo to our labels and our gift boxes.
Weve spent this weekend in Harrogate, North Yorkshire at the annual Home & Gift trade fair. These trade shows give us the opportunity to meet and chat with the lovely people who stock our products all over the country and show them the new things we have planned for the upcoming months. This year was a particularly exciting show for us as it was the first time we had displayed the redesigned logo we created with the help of a calligrapher, which you can see for yourselves on our website and social media.
As sunny weather starts to shine through the clouds, we begin spending a lot more time outdoors relaxing and enjoying the sunshine. With the sun comes a season of outside events, from garden parties and barbecues to outdoor weddings. Little details can that have an impressive effect on the atmosphere of any event and fragrance is hugely useful in creating the perfect ambience.
Ashleigh & Burwood turns 24 this month, so we've taken a look back at some of the highlights of our history so far...
Spring Equinox at the start of this week means spring has officially begun and the days lengthen, the sun begins peeking out from behind the clouds and the first flower buds poke their heads out of the earth. This transition of the seasons also brings about a change in our homes as we seek to refresh them after the hibernation of the cosy winter season.
According to Pantones Colour of the Year, green is the shade that will define 2017. Explaining their choice of colour, Pantone suggested that green reflects our growing desire for revitalisation in the face of a tumultuous 2016 and an effort to reconnect with the natural world as we become more dissatisfied with modern life.
Welcome to our Country Garden! For our Spring Collection we wanted to paint a picture of stolen moments of relaxation in dappled sunlight within a pretty cottage garden.
Its December! We noted last month that November often feels like an awkward month spent in agonising wait until December, Christmas and the opportunity to get all properly festive arrives. Well that time is now!
