Inverurie’s re:treat Apothecary marks 1st birthday with charity event
Eco-business re:treat Apothecary will this month mark its first birthday with a charity event.
re:treat Relaxation takes place at newly opened No. 8 and will blend guided relaxation and aromatherapy.
re:treat Apothecary’s handmade cosmetic products – including ranges of natural deodorant and oils – launched in June 2020 and are now stocked at 16 locations from the Hebrides to Yorkshire.Clinical Aromatherapist and re:treat owner Kathryn McIntosh will host the event and said: “re:treat Relaxation is the perfect opportunity to rebalance, reconnect and recover alongside like-minded folk in a beautiful new venue. Guests should bring their yoga mat, a blanket and prepare to surrender to some luscious relaxation.“To celebrate re:treat Apothecary’s first birthday the event will be free to attend – however donations will be collected in aid of Trees for Life, a fantastic charity rewilding the Scottish Highlands. Every pound received will go directly towards planting new trees.“While there has been much to celebrate over re:treat Apothecary’s first 12 months in business, it is also a great opportunity to reflect on what we have achieved in eco-terms.“We have worked hard to offer a sustainable alternative to traditional cosmetics - re:treat Apothecary products and packaging are vegan, cruelty free and plastic free.“With over 1600 tins of deodorant sold in our first year we have prevented the equivalent in single-use plastic from going to landfill. Even more pleasing is that an increasing number of customers are taking advantage of our closed-loop refill service.”re:treat Relaxation takes place at No. 8, Inverurie on Friday, June 11 at noon. Places are limited and can be booked via www.retreataberdeenshire.com/workshops-and-events.
