Products in the hypoallergenic, affordable and ethically produced range, include a sleep aid spray, menopause spray, and oils designed to help students during exams – all of which are expertly hand-made in Glasgow by owner/entrepreneur Margaret Morrison-Macleod.
Glasgow Southsider Margaret, who is originally from Oban, began her journey with the business after being misdiagnosed with a stroke, took time off from work as a surveyor and build her brand. She was later diagnosed with a rare form of migraine, which gave her the lightbulb moment."
Margaret (57) said: "I wanted to concentrate on home and personal fragrance in the form of sprays and oils, as these are much better for the environment. In less than two years, I have grown the business, stocking shops and with my very own boutique and workshop where people can come and see for themselves what a little ancient wisdom can do."
Customers are already raving about her products, with one writing online "this has changed my life!".
The Divine Hag opens its doors to the public tonight Friday 18/01 at 6 PM for a FREE interactive feel-good celebration - with music, special guests, drinks and food, as well as the chance to ask questions and try out products. Dr. Leo Lafferty-Whyte will also be on hand to give some tips on getting the best out of life and finding balance, as well as share his own personal journey with alternative and complementary therapies during his recovery from PTSD. The event is hosted by Frank McGowan, with the event being filmed for new Scottish TV channel Braw TV. The event will also be live streamed on the night via Facebook.
Dr. Leo, said: "There's more to recovery than just medication, there's a mindset too, and balance is key. Aromatherapy and scent, in general, can help you keep that balance, by pushing your emotions in the right direction. I use scent myself on a daily basis to help keep me calm, uplift me when I'm down and even help desensitise to trauma. It's great to see a store focusing on selling blends of oils for use in various scenarios as well as workshops to help people learn how to help themselves right in the middle of Glasgow."
Tickets are available via EventBrite or @TheDivineHag on Facebook. Press enquiries via firstname.lastname@example.org, or call Frank on +44(0)7561 439 370.
