A verdant coastal fragrance inspired by the Atlantic coastline, with extracts of mineral-rich sea oak and samphire with notes of sappy thyme, ivy and juniper.
Drinking in the mineral wealth of the ocean with each incoming tide, sea greens are richer in nutrients than any land-locked plant could hope to be. Chief among those found in the British Isles is sea oak, which can be found anchored steadfastly to the tide-line, fanning its leather-brown fronds on to beaches and unfurling shiny ribbons over pebbles and rocks. Thanks to a neat amphibious design, sea oak can sunbathe when the tide is out, employing its air-filled bubbles when it flows in.
Sea oak is worshipped for its dense nutritional goodness and essential oils, with a composition that reads like an A to Z of trace elements and minerals, many of which exert remarkable soothing effects on the skin.
Isle in a Bottle Noble Isle sources sea oak from a Roaringwater Bay Mussel Farm in west Cork, where a rocky coast meets the pristine waters of the Atlantic. Valued for its concentrated mineral content, sea oak has been gathered for hundreds of years in the area and this family-run mussel farm, which has historic access to the shoreline, is harvesting the super sea veg once again.
