There is something about Autumn that makes us get a bit serious.
The Summer slumber phase has well and truly left and before the cold bitter winter hits we've got three whole months to prepare our homes and bodies.
I feel as though whenever Autumn comes around it doesn't just bring a change in the air and a change to our leaves, it also gives us a kick to get things done around the office.
It's been one whole year since we left the organic stamp in our rear view mirror and drove towards a new quality assurance program, one that celebrates purity and cleanliness. Is it green and clean? Yes. Is it 100% pure? Yes. Is it the best available? Yes. These three questions are the first that are asked to our farmers and the most important questions out there.
To back us up we've brought in a GC-FID (Gas Chromatography Analysis machine for those playing at home), which allows us to profile and test every new oil to earthYARD. We've called her Gertrude and she's just marvellous. It's a lot of work to implement a brand new quality assurance program but we couldn't be more pleased with the results.
Slowly over the next few months we'll be making results available for everyone so watch this space for a new hit of science-stuff.
Onto a slightly less heavy note, we really want you to tell us what's missing from our store. Are you after more beauty, more raw materials, more blends, more tips. It's your time to shine and we want to hear what you've got to say so let us know now.
Oh, and you loved the sale category so much we made it permanent. We'll be switching things in and out of this every month so keep checking back to see what's new.
Happy Autumn earthYARDians.
