Some take no time at all, but involve little changes to your daily routine that will ultimately be better for wildlife, like buying a reusable coffee cup.

Butterfly habitatOut Of Stock

Butterfly habitat

£19.99

We bet you never knew you could provide a home for butterflies!

This particular butterfly habitat provides both a summer and winter house for butterflies. In summer it can be used as a nectar feeder packed full of sweet ripe fruits and in winter it makes a cosy over-wintering home for non-migratory butterflies.

This one comes in a gorgeous ‘pop’ blue and instructions to create the ideal butterfly habitat are included on the inside of the product wrap. Site the butterfly habitat in a sunny sheltered position, out of prevailing winds.

The nectar pots should be regularly filled with Wildlife World Butterfly Food with added vitamins or a sugar water solution. Feeding is especially effective in early spring and late summer when natural nectar is scarce. Place over ripe fruit in the central plastic bowl, the sweeter the better.

Once you’ve put it up, you’ll be all set to do the Big Butterfly Count in the summer!

Peak Skincare Dovedale Outdoor Face Balm

£12.00

A delicious combination of Argan, Jojoba and Apricot Oils blended with rich Shea Butter. The inclusion of locally sourced non-pore clogging beeswax helps to form a protective nourishing barrier for those fresh air outdoor activities. Equally suited to drying indoor conditions too. Scented with essential oils of Patchouli and Bergamot plus Lemongrass to help deter insects. An essential balm for everyday skincare use.

Product Story: The National Trust owns the land of Dovedale which is named after the River Dove that runs through the Dale. While this may be one of the gentlest walks of the Peak District, your ‘Dove-like’ complexion can always benefit from a little extra regular nourishment to help protect from drying winds whether the walk is easy or more challenging. So we designed a namesake Face Balm, and our Dovedale, with its light Apricot oil and precious Argan oil, is specially formulated with beeswax from bees foraging on local wild flowers to provide the essential extra ‘all-weather’ element . Plus earthy Patchouli and lemony Bergamot essential oils make the scent unisex. But don’t save it just for outdoor activities as it is suitable to use in centrally heated homes, cars and offices too!

Peak Skincare Monsal Head Hair Balm

Plus enriching Jojoba seed oil, locally sourced Peak District beeswax and a simple scent of delicate Vanilla essential oil. This is sleek non greasy, hair smoothing and hair nourishing balm. Ideal for daily use.

Monsal Head is arguably the most famous view point of any Dale in the Peak District National Park. Looking down on the impressive former railway viaduct, now known as the Monsal Trail, you can be sure your hair is in place with our Monsal Head Hair Balm. Starflower seed and Camellia seed oils have high reputations for hair conditioning and together with smoothing, protective beeswax, your hair can look slick and sleek while you have fun.
