This natural health and beauty shop/complementary therapies clinic opened in spring 2008. The lovingly arranged shop has a fresh and soothing vibe and is stocked with a plethora of high-quality herbal and organic skincare brands – such as Figs & Rouge, Ruby Red, Trilogy and Damask – as well as bath and beauty products, aromatic flower-water sprays from the company’s own label, natural soaps, top-notch eco candles, eco salt baths and house-blended herbal teas (try the Skin Tea to clarify skin and hair or Wild Meadow Tea if you have a spot of indigestion). Owner Paula Grainger tries hard to stock brands from small-scale producers based in the UK. Lemon Balm is also a lovely space in which to search for a unique and indulgent present; gift sets come in three sizes, priced from £15 to £48, and you can also create your own personalised gift box, from £10. The clinic offers massage, aromatherapy, acupuncture, reflexology, homeopathy and more from independent therapists, as well as Western herbal medicine from Grainger herself.
