The British Hemp Company has just launched and their face oil and hand balm are fantastic gifts for mother’s day. First orders 10% off with HELLOHEMP. Hemp is amazingly good for your health as it is for the environment. britishhempco.com

Please see some amazing facts about hemp below and the products.

& Ten Reasons why Hemp really is all round good: britishhempco.com/blogs/news/10-reasons-why-hemp-really-is-all-round-good

Hemp captures carbon like no other crop! During its growth cycle, one hectare of hemp can remove a whopping 20 tons of carbon from the atmosphere.
It needs no herbicides or insecticides to thrive so you know that your hemp food products will be pure, and the hedgerows, bees and butterflies will be happy
Its seeds and oil are bursting with vital nutrients including the full range of essential fatty acids, and have multiple health benefits.
Hemp plant fibres can be made into everything from building materials to textiles, paper, insulation, bio-fuel and car bodies. That’s right, car bodies! And they are at least 10 times more dent resistant than steel.
Hemp protein powder is the richest source of plant-based protein you’ll find – and it contains all nine amino acids.
Hemp food products have no known allergens, so are suitable for the most sensitive of stomachs.
Textiles made from hemp are four times stronger than cotton, but softer.
Hemp can be grown using ‘no till farming’ methods, which helps reduce soil erosion.
Unlike many other commercial crops, hemp needs little water – far less than corn, wheat or soya beans.

The British Hemp Company launches range of products to nourish and empower communities in the UK again…

Each tonne of harvested hemp takes the UK 20 tons of carbon closer to ‘net zero’

On the 3rd February The British Hemp Company (BHC) launched with three major initiatives in its strategy to harmonise people, profits and the planet.
Hemp is available in the UK but many suppliers sell seed-based products that are tainted with a massive carbon footprint. Few are transparent about the distances travelled by their products, many of which come from countries as far away as Canada and China. Locally grown and processed products are better for the environment as they do not come with a huge carbon footprint.

Amazing Facts!
Hemp out performs all other crops in carbon capture, and one hectare of plants can remove up to 20 tons from the atmosphere during its growing cycle.
Hemp is great for the insect population as it needs no pesticides or herbicides. This allows hedgerows to breathe and birds and butterflies to thrive. The British Hemp Company is hoping to make a huge impact with helping the Government achieve its ambitious carbon reduction target of ‘net zero’ by 2050.

Hemp History
Globally, hemp has been recognised for thousands of years as an extremely versatile, robust and environmentally friendly plant. It delivered considerable societal and economic benefits to people and communities – providing employment, food, clothes, shelter, medicine, fuel and nutrition. In the 1930s hemp fell out of favour after the price fell and a government disinformation campaign wrongly linked hemp with Cannabis. Up until the ‘well of information’ was poisoned this naturally occurring health giving resource had nourished and empowered communities. This is what the British Hemp Company wish to recreate in the UK. Hemp is due a hayday, according to Steve Glover, MD of The British Hemp Company.
“We exist on a warming, over populated and polluted planet,” said Glover. “It is our mission to farm hemp and make investments into processing that reverse extremely disturbing trends such as global warming. We need to replace all of the toxic industries that are responsible for the destruction that we see around us every day, and give back to UK communities with employment, education by promoting the huge environmental and health benefits of hemp.”

Nutritional Facts
Hemp seeds are one of nature’s superfoods. They are one of the best sources of complete plant-based protein containing all 9 essential amino amino acids along with omegas 3, 6 & 9, in the perfect ratio for the human body. Essentially one can survive on hemp alone and be very healthy. The health benefits of hemp include good digestion, regulated hormonal symptoms and a well performing brain function.

Today the British Hemp Company launch with a range of products including Hemp Protein Powder, Hemp Seed Oil, Whole Hemp Seeds, Hulled Hemp Seeds, Hemp Flour, Hand Cream and Face Oil. A full range of body care products will be rolled out over the next few months including Lip Balm and Body Moisturiser. In future The British Hemp Company will franchise its operation throughout the UK, a totally functioning UK Hemp industry on multiple sites stimulating economic growth through mass job creation and seeding new business. The opportunities created include the manufacture of soaps and body care products, packing, processing, farming and expanding its product lines to paper making and textile manufacture.
Support from the Industry.

The British Hemp Company launch with support from of an already firmly established partner network built from Steve Glover’s work with hemp farmers as founder of the Bristol Hemp Company. In 2017 after a great deal of communications with the Home Office, the Bristol Hemp Company obtained the first industrial hemp license. Steve Glover has been supporting farmers in obtaining Home Office Licenses ever since, supporting all the farms launching today in obtaining their licence as part of the British Hemp Company.

Scott McArthur, McArthur Agriculture Ltd said: “McArthur Agriculture Ltd are delighted to be supporting The British Hemp Company with the provision and set up of processing equipment for hemp seed. It is an exciting prospect that many of our fellows in the UK agricultural industry can grow hemp to diversify and strengthen their businesses, whilst progressing ‘green’ aspirations. The British Hemp Company certainly mean business in setting up state of the art processing lines that will transform the raw material into exciting and diverse products with global demand.”
NAFICI Environmental Research are at the forefront of the research and development into the use of cereal straw (wheat, barley, oat, rice straw, etc.), corn stover, reed, cotton stems and more, transforming it efficiently into unbleached paper pulp. The partnership with The British Hemp Company is to set to expand NAFICI’s research remit into the development of the Eco-friendly Hemp stalks into Pulp. Florence Miremadi- Nafici Co-founder & CEO explained: “We are very excited to be working with the British Hemp Company. The first hemp stalk prototype passed all our checks with flying colours and we should start the next phase of development soon. We see huge economical and environment benefits from the evolution of hemp stalk, which range from providing solid economic farming solutions to developing countries and providing sustainable alternatives for plastic, animal bedding, insulation, building materials, textiles, and paper.”

The British Hemp Company will be taking its lead from its European counterparts that have historically had government support and freedom for the cultivation of Hemp. Notably Poland and a partnership with the Polish Hemp Program. Witold Czeszak, Head of The Polish Hemp Program, owned by the Institute of Natural Fibres and Medicinal Plants and funded by the Polish Government commented on the news and the partnership: “I have the upmost respect for the vision of The British Hemp Company and am very pleased to be working in an advisory role to support the expansion of ethical hemp farming in the UK. Steve Glover has expansive knowledge about Hemp and understands how to overcome the barriers to production innovative goods made from industrial hemp. We are confident that with Steve’s passion and expertise that the harvesting of industrial hemp will make the necessary strides forward for mass production in the UK to kickstart the development of industries dealing with the processing of hemp stalks – from textiles, cosmetics sectors, to construction.”

About The British Hemp Company
The British Hemp Company believe in plant powered living, clean air, healthy food, the birds, the bees and home grown prosperity. Seed by seed, farm by farm, the mighty hemp is helping us make this a reality. Our hemp is grown organically on twelve locations and 250 acres throughout the UK – from Totnes to Aberdeen, Colchester to South Wales and our farmers are at the heart of everything we do. Our mill in Warminster is accredited to Soil Association standards and ISO9001. We produce a range of nutritional and body care products and plan franchising our operation throughout the UK in the next years and expanding its product lines to paper making and textile manufacture. We have a commitment to a triple bottom line where profit, people and the environment are equally important.

Three NEW Gifts from Paxton & Whitfield to make Mother’s Day Extra Special

After this last year, the Mums in our lives deserve a treat more than ever! Paxton & Whitfield’s cheesemongers have created three NEW gifts to help celebrate this very special lady on Sunday 14th March. There is a Mother’s Day Cheese Treats Gift Box, a March Cheese Treats Box and if you think your Mum would like something more interactive, you can buy her a ticket for a unique Online Cheese Tasting celebrating female cheesemakers.
All three products are packaged with 100% sheep’s wool insulation and reusable icepacks and sent on an overnight delivery service for an impressive and fresh arrival. You can add a personalised gift message to be printed on a Paxton & Whitfield gift card.
They are all available online at paxtonandwhitfield.co.uk. So choose a gift and make your Mum’s Mother’s Day this year!
Mother’s Day Cheese Treats Gift Box (£40) – This selection of treats features a Mother’s Day cheeseboard selection of three artisan cheeses, comforting Cornish Buttermilk biscuits, Caramelised Onion Chutney and some deliciously creamy, Sea Salt Cotswold Fudge.
The cheeses featured make a balanced cheeseboard and are:
• Tunworth (250g) (pasteurised, traditional rennet) – An award-winning, wonderful Camembert-style, cows’ milk cheese made in Hampshire by Stacey Hedges. This cheese is slightly stronger than a traditional Camembert but has an earthy savouriness to it that perfectly represents the area it’s made in. It is a wonderful choice of soft cheese for a board any time of year but is especially delicious in the spring.
• Kirkham’s Lancashire (250g) (Unpasteurised, traditional rennet) – A superb example of a traditional farmhouse cheese, this Lancashire is made by Graham Kirkham in the “black land of Fylde” north of Preston in Lancashire where the pasture land is near the Irish sea. The cheese is buttery with a hint of sharpness.
• Celtic Capra (80g) (Pasteurised, vegetarian rennet) – Ireland is renowned for its lush green fields and clean air, and in County Tipperary where Celtic Capra is made, the pastures are rich. The grass is full of clover and the soil is peaty, making it the perfect environment to produce the top quality milk needed to make fantastic cheeses. This cheese is a great example of what the area can produce and is made on a farm which uses milk from a neighbouring goat herd. It has a crumbly texture which, with age, develops to a creamier consistency towards the rind. It has fresh, nutty taste from the rind, and a more citrus flavour coming from the paste.

March Cheese Treats (£60/ price includes delivery in the UK) – Paxton & Whitfield’s monthly cheese treats selections have brought foodie enjoyment to many a household during lockdown. Each one is a limited edition, seasonal collection – specially compiled by its cheesemongers to suit the month. The March selection makes a perfect gift for Mother’s Day. It features three delicious artisan cheeses, two mini bottles of Hyke Gin, a box of Charbonnel & Walker chocolates, a pack of Poppy & Linseed Crackers and a Sloe Fig & Almond Slice. It’s strictly limited to 100 boxes.
The cheeses featured in this March selection are all British award-winners and are:
• Appleby’s Cheshire (250g) (Unpasteurised cows’ milk, vegetarian rennet) – This is an artisan cheese made using a traditional recipe, with milk from cows that have grazed on lush Cheshire/Shropshire pastures. The cheese is made at Abbey Farm at Hawkstone, Shropshire, from unpasteurised cows’ milk using vegetarian rennet. Once the whey has separated the curds are placed in calico lined cylindrical moulds, pressed to remove any excess liquid and left to settle. The cheese is then bound in calico, using an edible paste, and left to mature for up to six months. The final cheese has a piquant flavour with a firm and crumbly texture. Before the Second World War Cheshire cheese accounted for 60% of all cheese sold in the UK but in the 1960’s its popularity was overtaken by Cheddar, as Cheddar was more suited to supermarket pre-packaging. Today Appleby’s is the only remaining producer of real calico bound traditional farm Cheshire cheese in the UK using its own unpasteurised milk.
• Rachel (250g) (Thermised, vegetarian rennet, goats’ milk) This is a semi-hard, washed rind cheese made from thermised goats’ milk with a mellow nutty flavour that is not too ‘goaty’. To help create its semi hard texture, this cheese is washed regularly in a brine solution, something far more common in cows’ milk cheeses. This creates a warm reddish orange colour on the crust with a pale, supple interior and a flavour that is not overly ‘goaty’ but nutty and mellow. It is perfect for those who like a full flavoured cheese.
• Wigmore (250g) (Sheep’s milk, vegetarian rennet) – This cheese is made at Village Maid Cheese Ltd, Riseley, just near to Reading, Berkshire, and is named after the cheesemaker and owner of the dairy Anne Wigmore. Wigmore is a traditional handmade, washed curd cheese – a method of cheesemaking that is widely used across Europe. It is made from thermised sheep’s milk and is matured for about six weeks. It has a slightly sweet, yet flowery taste with a firm texture when young that gets slightly runny as it ages. It has a light and delicate flavour with a superb complexity that always makes it a treat to enjoy.
Hyke Gin is an innovative and award-wining sustainably sourced gin – made in England, using grape spirit produced from grapes that are surplus to the requirements of the supermarket supply chain. Flavoured with the Botanicals inspired by the grapes’ African and South American roots, including coriander, myrrh and rooibos. Beautifully packaged; it’s been tasted and enjoyed by our cheesemongers and specifically paired to complement the cheeses in this selection.
Online Cheese Tasting (£45) – Women Cheesemakers – Sunday 14th March 4pm – Expert cheesemonger Jazz Reeves will be talking you through a live online cheese tasting for Mothers’ Day on Sunday 14th March at 4pm, tasting some of the finest artisan cheeses pioneered by women cheesemakers. The price includes the entry to this online tasting event and a chilled delivery of artisan cheese to your home so that you can taste along for the full experience. UK delivery is included in the price (there is an additional delivery charge for highlands & islands addresses).

‘EXPECTING PEAR-ENTS’ TAKE NOTE:
Leading nutritionist outlines why pears should be
part of a healthy diet when you’re expecting

• Top nutritionist Lily Soutter says pears are one of the safest foods
to consume during the early stages of pregnancy
• Pears contain fibre, folate, potassium and vitamin C which are important
for a healthy pregnancy
• Soutter recommends some of the best foods to ‘pair with pears’
if you’re an expectant mother
9 February 2021, London: Expectant mothers need to be mindful of the food they consume throughout pregnancy, particularly in the first trimester. Any food consumed by an expectant mother is the baby’s source of nourishment, which means a varied and balanced diet is key. British Apples and Pears has teamed up with leading nutritionist Lily Soutter to explain why pears are one of the best foods to consume during pregnancy.

Soutter explains, “Pears are low in calories and have high nutritional value, which is essential for the development of a healthy pregnancy. The regular peak in births in late September indicates the biggest pregnancy boom is at the start of the year1, making it a perfect season to enjoy more pears”.

Pears are also an excellent source of dietary fibre, with just one pear providing 20% of our daily fibre requirement. Fibre is crucial for digestive health, which is often sluggish during pregnancy2. Getting enough fibre in a pregnancy diet aids the functioning of the digestive system, to help ease constipation3.

Soutter adds, “Pears are a tasty way for expectant mothers to consume vital nutrients such as potassium, folate, vitamin C and vitamin K, all of which alongside a nourishing diet, contribute to our daily requirements4. Pears also provide an array of antioxidants which lie within the skin. It’s important to enjoy the skin of a pear as well as the flesh as peeling the skin has been shown to result in a 25% loss of these beneficial plant chemicals5.”

A healthy balanced diet throughout pregnancy is important to help the baby develop and grow. Special attention should be paid to certain nutrients for optimal wellbeing including iron, omega-3 fatty acids and folate. Iron-rich foods include red meat, pulses, nuts and eggs, while the top source of omega-3 fats remains oily fish (although pregnant women should consume in moderation). What’s more, research suggests folic acid supplements should be taken during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy to reduce the risk of neural tube defects6. In fact, pregnant women are encouraged to consume folate rich foods including green leafy vegetables, chickpeas and kidney beans.

When introducing your baby to solids, pears are a great fruit to try in the early stages of weaning. Many anecdotal reports suggest that pears are generally well digested and tolerated7.* It’s important to peel the pear for a young baby, and if it’s ripe enough, you can also steam it for a few minutes to soften the fruit.

Ali Capper, Executive Chair of British Apples and Pears says, “Britain has the perfect climate to grow delicious pears, which are readily available in supermarkets across the UK, all year round. There has never been a more important time to incorporate healthy foods into our diets, and this is especially important for pregnant women who need to closely monitor the foods they consume for their own health and for their baby’s”.

Pears can be consumed alone as a healthy snack or as part of a meal. Soutter suggests trying a simple, yet delicious grilled mackerel and pear salad recipe, served with sliced fennel, lemon juice, watercress, pumpkin seeds and creme fraiche. This refreshing salad is full of essential omega-3 fats, which are crucial for the development of the baby’s brain and eyes8. Or for those looking for a morning pick me up, why not start your day with a delicious bowl of yoghurt, topped with sliced pear and a dash of honey for the perfect flavour combination.

The Chelsea Flower show cancelled? Make Your Own Show with these Indoor Plants

• With Chelsea Flower Show cancelled for the first time in its history, Wren Kitchens reveals the best houseplants to boost your mood until autumn
• Indoor plants can reduce 87% of toxins in the air, reduce blood pressure and make you feel calmer

It’s a well-known fact that spending time in nature is good for your wellbeing, so what better way to boost your mood than to bring nature inside. With search volumes for “house plants delivered” increasing by 400%, and “buy houseplants online” by 200% since lockdown, Wren Kitchens have revealed the best houseplants to have in your home to help boost your mood. Covid may have canclled the Chelsea flower show, but it can’t cancel your home show.
1. Aloe vera
The gel from aloe vera can help to soothe acne, burns and dry skin, helping you both physically and mentally. To allow your aloe vera plant to thrive, place it in bright but indirect sunlight, and let it dry in between watering.
2. Lavender
Place your lavender plant in the bedroom, and the scent will help to reduce your stress levels, enabling you to sleep better. To let it grow, water it regularly and leave it in a place that gets a lot of light.
3. Snake plant
Had issues in the past with keeping plants alive? Try a snake plant – they need minimal care, but can really help to improve your wellbeing as they add moisture to the air and release oxygen. They’re particularly ideal for people who suffer from allergies – and interestingly, they were the most Googled plant in lockdown!
4. Peace lily
Peace lilies are great houseplants to have. Not only do they soak up mould spores in the air; they also absorb their water before releasing it back into their environment – so place your peace lily in a dry room.
5. Monstera plant
You’ve likely seen the Monstera (also referred to as a Swiss cheese plant) clogging up your Insta feed, but they can actually boost your mood. They purify the air, making your home healthier – plus, you can grow new plants from their cuttings.
6. English ivy
Like peace lilies, English ivy absorbs mould in the air, helping to purify your home; and it also has properties that help you to stop being restless, meaning you can enjoy a better night’s sleep.

Sprout Plantable Pencils – Spread the Love Edition!

Sprout Pencils – Spread The Love Edition

£9, www.sproutworld.com / amazon.co.uk

The world’s first and only patented plantable pencil that blooms into vegetables, flowers and herbs when you’ve finished using it.

Instead of throwing it out when it becomes too small to write with, just plant the stub into soil, and water – the capsule dissolves and releases seeds that sprout into Forget-me-not flowers, Carnations, Thyme, Sage and Daisy.

Each pencil has a love-related quote engraved to spread the love on Mother’s Day:

All things grow with love
Absence makes the heart grow fonder
When we love – we grow
Love is the flower you’ve got to let grow
Let love grow

It’s a great way of showcasing sustainability and encouraging people to think about recycling and the environment.

Why Sprout Pencils are special

• 100% natural – made from sustainably harvested cedar wood, graphite and clay

• Non-toxic and plant-based seed capsules, so they’re perfectly safe if you accidently chew on them

• Variety of non-GMO seeds including basil, cherry tomato, chia, sage, thyme, sunflower, carnation, coriander, daisy and forget-me-not flowers

• Plastic-free, lead-free, 100% biodegradable and will decompose safely

• Around 14 billion pencils are produced worldwide each year – imagine if all these pencil stubs could turn into plants in the way these pencils do

Dress your skin for the Big Chill
KYALLI launches its GOOD TO GLOW WHIPPED BODY SOUFFLE and GOOD TO GLOW RICH BODY LOTION to hydrate and illuminate the body

As the seasons change so does your skin and its needs.

Winter brings with it a multitude of dry conditions that strip skin of its natural

moisture. This dryness can lead to redness, dry patches and excess dead skin cells that clog the pores, causing the skin to look dull.

Banish red blotches, chapped hands, rough heels, and scaly elbows and knees and dress your skin in extra winter protection with KYALLI’s new high performing body cares GOOD TO GLOW Soufflé and GOOD TO GLOW Lotion.

These latest body moisturisers to join the PEONY + YAKUWA PLANT EXTRACT collection acts as a “skin-transformer” as it instantaneously restores dry lifeless skin back to luminosity by combining science with the power of plants harnessed from around the world; protecting the skin from dullness and dryness caused by the colder climate, free radicals and air pollution.

Gentle notes of aromatic geranium and sweet mandarin oil caresses the skin in a superior full sensory scent whilst the silky, satin finish imparts a luminous glow and provides long-lasting hydration

The GOOD TO GLOW Soufflé has an elegantly whipped, buttery, creamy texture that is intensely moisturizing to convert scaly, rough feeling skin back to its luminous best, replenishing the skin with restored elasticity, even skin tone and an enviable radiance leaving your skin feeling hydrated, supple and youthful.

The GOOD TO GLOW Body Lotion provides all the luxurious, creamy sensation of the soufflé but in a lighter, easily spreadable texture. Enriched with beneficial oils and brightening actives that target imperfections to give the skin a radiant and luminescent glow.

While many body moisturizing products with rich ingredients usually sit on top of the skin, the GOOD TO GLOW rich soufflé and light, hydrating lotion uses smaller, sophisticated molecules which slip into the skin’s upper epidermis layers for deeper penetration meaning lines, wrinkles and dehydration are targeted more efficiently.

It contains Russian bearberry extract, Indian liquorice and Niacinamide that are all powerhouses in gently brightening uneven, blemished skin; Chinese Peony and Ghanaian Yakuwa Plant Extract to diminish fine lines, boost collagen and eradicate free radicals and Marula oil, Pomegranate Seed Oil and Squalene for quick-absorbing, long-lasting hydration, to name a few.

How to use:

Use all over the body day and night for optimum results. For extra hydration, apply directly after having a shower or bath as the heat will have opened your pores a little further, which will allow the moisturisers to sink in faster and hydrate your skin better. Putting clothes on or wrapping a towel around yourself too soon will wipe away the lotion you just applied, and you will lose all of the moisturizing benefits.
