Mother's Day Gift Ideas

We have some lovely new hampers and gift ideas, that would be perfect as pampering Mother's Day gifts!

Natroma - handmade natural soaps, bathing and luxurious home fragrancing

We have some pretty Springtime natural skincare hampers containing handmade goat's milk soaps and organic bathing products. 

Have you spotted that we now have a range of beautiful natural rattan reed diffusers?  Our reed diffusers are made from a vegetable derived oil that's alcohol free, VOC free and non-flammable.  With over 30 positive reviews, customers seem to be loving our pure essential oil and enhanced fragrances, to naturally fragrance the homeThese are available in smaller kits and we also package them into gift hampers.

We're also a stockist of Amelia Art Glass - beautiful and unique blown glass diffuser bottles and Friendship Balls.  Many customers buy these as stylish additions to their homes, but they are also make  wonderful gifts.  Remember that if you're unable to visit your Mum this year, there is an option on the website to order a gift and we'll include a personalised gift message.  

So for Mother's Day gift inspiration, remember to call into our shop at the Ruskin Glass Centre or place your order on the Natroma website

Natroma - Summer Shop Opening Hours 2021

 We haven't posted on this blog for years (it's best to visit our website blog or Facebook page) , but thought it would help customers to mention our new shop arrangements for 2021.

After much thought, we have decided to change our shop opening hours for the summer. After the release of the 2021 lock-down our shop has been quiet.  The last 12 months have been very challenging for Natroma and we are very grateful for the support of our customers - locally and further afield.  The pandemic has turned the business on its head so we now have many customers from all around the UK regularly ordering our products via the website.  So for now we are opening our shop on a part-time basis.  We can then give website customers our full attention at the beginning of each week (the website is busiest at the weekend) so we can promptly manufacture our aromatherapy products and process your orders.   Later in the week we'll then have more time to look after local customers giving them time to browse, ask questions and have a chat (rather than seeing us dashing around in the background looking too busy to be interrupted).  We want our shop to be as welcoming as before the pandemic so hopefully local customers will see that we're trying to balance their needs, with the many customers who are also supporting us from all around the country.

So we'll be working full time as normal each week, but our revised shop opening hours will be:

      Sunday - Wednesday      CLOSED

      Thursday - Saturday       10.30am - 4pm

As before, we're asking shop visitors to enter our shop to enter via our outside door - you walk up the slope to the right of the main Ruskin Glass Centre steps and our door is just around the corner.  We'll require everyone to wear a face mask whilst in our shop and will continue to ask customers to wash their hands when they arrive.  There's no need to book a shopping appointment, but we'll be restricting access into the shop to around 2-3 people at a time.    

We also offer Click & Collect on the website so you can pre-order items and we'll have them ready for when you call in.

Thanks everyone, and we hope to see you soon!

Natroma wins 2017 Natural Beauty Award for Q10 Facial Oil Serum!

Natroma Award Winning Skincare - Q10 Facial Oil Serum and Carrot & Calendula organic goat's milk soap

Today we’re delighted to announce that The Green Parent magazine has awarded Natroma another Best Buy award, for our organic Q10 Facial Oil Serum in their 2017 Natural Beauty Awards!

Each year The Green Parent Magazine Natural Beauty Awards search for the safest, cleanest, greenest and most effective natural products in a range of categories.  Each of the winning skincare products in the 2017 awards has been carefully chosen and tested by an independent review panel.  The Award winners will appear in the 2017 Natural Beauty Bible which will be published later in July.

Natroma is a tiny company so we're thrilled to have won an award 2 years running and that our hugely popular Q10 Facial Oil Serum has been recognised!  All of our gentle facial products were developed especially for eczema, psoriasis and sensitive skin types, and they have many fans.  So it's lovely that our Q10 Facial Oil Serum, which is such a favourite with customers, has won this award.

So during 2017 we'll be celebrating with some Q10 Special Offers - on the Natroma website and on purchases made in our Stourbridge shop at the Ruskin Glass Centre.

Opening Hours for 2017

During 2016, we monitored the times when customers tended to visit our shop at the Ruskin Glass Centre.  We used to open at 10am, but have found that many customers came into the shop later in the morning and around lunchtime. 

So for 2017, we've decided to change our Stourbridge shop opening hours.  This change has no impact on holistic therapy treatments, since we'll be happy to offer earlier and later appointments as usual.

Our weekly shop opening hours will now be published on our Natroma website, and we'll also post changes (if we take a holiday or are out at external events) on our Facebook page.

Our usual weekly hours during 2017 will be:

Monday - CLOSED
Tuesday - 1.30pm to 4pm
Wednesday - 10.30am to 4pm
Thursday - 10.30am to 4pm
Friday - 10.30am to 4pm
Saturday - 10.30am to 4pm
Sunday CLOSED (or by appointment)

Merry Christmas from Natroma!

Our Stourbridge shop will be open this week until Friday 23rd December 2016.  We're still receiving lots on website orders and these will be posted out right up until we close for the year (but we can't guarantee parcels will arrive before Christmas, unless orders are received within the next day and postage is upgraded).

Our Stourbridge shop will be closed from Christmas Eve until 14th January 2017 - so we can re-charge the batteries!  But our Natroma website will continue to accept orders and we'll be calling in, to process these as normal from 4th January 2017.  So if local customers need anything urgent, please drop us an e-mail and we'll try to organise a mutually convenient collection date!

In the meantime, thanks to everyone for their custom and support during 2016.  We greatly valued everyone's kindness and goodwill as we celebrated our 10th Birthday this year.  We hope you have a peaceful and restful Christmas break, and a Happy New Year in 2017!
