I was looking for clean, locally made skincare I could use with clients in my holistic facials. These products were exactly what I was hoping for. I love them, especially the cleansing balm, it smells amazing. I bought more to use myself and just bought the deodorant and Frangipani roller perfume and they're gorgeous. I haven't had much luck trying to find a natural deodorant, I break out after using them, but this one is great. I can't recommend these products enough, and ethical ingredients and packaging. LOVE 💖💖💖 these products.
I've not been sleeping the best lately, probably due to what's going on all around us with covid. My lovely daughter Louise introduced me to Josie’s Botanicals and her latest gift to me included Sleep with Ease room spray. I'm finding it very effective, sleeping well again. I would highly recommend it ( in fact I've treated a couple of friends to it). That said, all your products are wonderful Barbara
I admit it, I'm a bit of a skeptic. When it comes to claims about organic this and that, and assumptions that products will automatically be good for you, well lets just say I reserve my judgement. I need proof. However, Barbara's product range is outstanding in every way. I really love it! The purity and quality of her ingredients, and the highly skilled and professional way she works her alchemist wonders to is a real credit to her. I have purchased a wide range of products and love them all, but if I was to choose one as a total stand-out for me, it would be the moisturisers. The Serum, and the hydrating moisture cream have settled my skin and feel great. And as smells are important to me, I feel great just using the products as they do smell so good, and they seem to relax me. Also, as a student of the Dublin based Indian Head Massage (Champisage) course, my evaluation of Barbara ( as an experienced tutor/trainer myself) is that she runs an excellent course with great warmth and communication skills. Top marks! :)
I was so lucky to find these products by Josies Botanicals. I have the most sensitive skin and alot of products just irritate it but my skin just loves these products. I am very happy with the results and I absolutely love the fact that they are organic and natural and they are fabulous value for money. I'm using the cleansing balm and moisturiser and I must say a little goes a long way. I'm adoring the fragrances of these products, love, love, love. My second order has already been dispatched and I can't wait to avail of the other services Barbara provides. Thank you Barbara and my skin thanks you. Highest regards. Kelli

I have both of the organic cleansing balm and the dragon fruit & rose powder to foam cleanser and they are incredible for sensitive skin. Winter is cruel on my face ... these cleansers are gentle & calming to irritated/dry skin however clean away the dirt & leave it fresh, soothed & soft.
I love everything about these products! Amazing quality and great value. Natural, locally hand made, plant based, filled with therapeutic essential oils that smell beautiful and work wonderfully. I use the cleansing balm, deodorant and hand cream. I wouldn't use any other natural deodorant, this one actually works and smells fantastic. The cleansing balm is rich and nourishing and leaves my skin feeling fresh and smooth. The hand cream hydrates and softens my skin, even when hand washing frequently. Gorgeous products that I would highly recommend for daily use and as lovely gifts. I can't wait to try out new items. Ula xx
I had severe pain in my shoulder as a result of a fall and this balm has given me tremendous relief, my wife also suffers from bursitis on her knee and she has also found the balm very beneficial. Definitely will use again and again. We love the smell too, very relaxing and therapeutic.
The natural products in the Josies Botanicals range are splendid. I use them daily; the cleansing balm, hydrating moisturiser and deodorant, all are of a very high quality. I suffer with ligament pain in my knees and shoulders and for the past year I've been using the muscle and joint ease balm, which gives me enormous relief. I use it morning and night and wouldn't be without it. It helps me to walk without pain. Josies Botanicals are truly excellent. Do try them.
Barbara your antioxidant serum is amazing i’m actually in awe!! I have pcos which gives me bad acne on my jawline and it was bothering me last night, and i put two drops of your serum on it and woke up this morning and they’ve settled down no redness or irritation i can’t believe it! I’ve always loved skincare but alot of the time the chemicals in them would end up making my skin worse but your products work miracles! Can't wait to start my new skincare routine. Thanks so much
I suffer terrible from psoriasis on my arms and face. Barbara's products was recommended to me by a work colleague. Barbara gave me a sample of her homemade cleansing balm and her hydrating moisturiser based on my needs. within a week the dryness on my face n arms had improved. my skin looks more healthier n glowing. I so delighted with results. thank you so much Barbara. x
Barbara your deodorant has changed my life!! That sounds extreme but it really IS magic. I wanted to wait to give it time to see if the effects wore off but nope. I've tired the strongest deo to the most natural ones and they never were able to keep me fresh throughout the day. I really am honestly blown away. Will be buying for everyone! Thank you SO much!! ♡
Not only is Barbara a kind and caring person with a warm heart, she’s an amazing therapist. Very understanding and respectful of your needs and her products are just beautiful. I’d highly recommend! See you again soon 💖
After developing what I think is adult acne, I tried a load of products but if anything they just irritated my skin more. I started using Josies Botanicals Cleansing Balm about 6 months ago and the difference in my skin is amazing. It's like that ph balance has been restored, I've smooth, fresh skin now! I added the moisturiser since and use both daily. Recently, I got a sample of the exfoliator and I will most definitely be purchasing this! The scent of the three products are sooo good! Thanks for amazing products x
This morning I had a hot oil massage, a facial followed by facial rejuvenation. Barbara uses her own natural products Josies Botanicals and they smell simply devine. It was in her beautiful cabin which is so warm, cosy and relaxing. After a busy morning with the school run and feeling a little stressed....immediately I had a sense of calm come over me when I entered because of the music, beautiful aroma and the decor. Barbara puts you at ease and is so warm and friendly. The hot oil massage was amazing, Barbara has magic hands! 👐 I was almost asleep during this. Then the facial and facial rejuvenation was heavenly. The natural products Barbara used were so wonderful and smell sooo good. You can feel the warmth coming from Barbara's hands and you can feel a healing energy from them. Nothing was rushed, I felt completely relaxed and just didn't want it to end. There was even a head and scalp massage at the end which was sheer bliss. After a stressful separation and with a 6 and 4 year old to run around after I have been stressed and exhausted and decided it was time to look after myself a little. This was 90 minutes extremely well spent, I left feeling refreshed and rejuvenated and almost walking on air. I purchased some of the beautiful natural facial products as my skin felt so thoroughly cleansed and so so soft and glowing that I want to keep it up... And..... I swear the black circles under my eyes are reduced today! I am already looking forward to my next treatment. I couldn't recommend Barbara and her products highly enough. You can see she loves her work and takes such pride in her products. She's a wonder. Thank you Barbara for a wonderful morning..... I'm still on cloud nine hours later 😊
I just had the most relaxing experience. I booked a full body massage and facial rejuvenation with Barbara. I was feeling really stressed the last few weeks and both treatments have made the world of difference to me. Barbara is a lovely therapist and I am totally satisfied with both treatments. Such an holistic experience in one of the most relaxing places and her natural products just made for a better and more relaxing time. I'm looking forward to book my next appointment...
Barbara’s Balm :
I use it on my ring finger that sustained a spiral fracture about a year a half ago.The finger can be quite stiff in the mornings and evenings and the Balm gives some welcome relief,it feels nice on the other fingers as well,and a little goes a long way.
My Wife’s hand can be painfull after doing housework and she also gets great relief when she uses the Balm,she’s says it’s very comforting and wouldn’t be without a jar beside her when we’re watching tv.
So thank you Barbera for a wonderful product that’s that’s very reasonabley priced.
I always try my best to use natural skincare products and therefore was very excited to sample the ‘Josie’s Botanical’ range. Barbara has always been so passionate about the products she produces and always uses high quality, pure natural nourishing ingredients! I have been using the range since September 2017. As well as enjoying the feel of the chemical free products with wonderful scents, I have also found a significant improvement in the quality of my skin.
The products are deeply conditioning and I have also found that they have improved elasticity, firmness and encourage a clear even tone. I use the serum at night and find it deeply nourishing and it also supports my skins healing process.
I also love using the Natural Deodorant every day which is full of natural organic ingredients that neutralise odour, and I’m left with a lovely fresh feeling all day.
I have sensitive skin and a lot of products I have used in the market caused a lot of skin irritation. However, I have not experienced any sensitivity with any of the Josie’s Botanical’ range, which I am sure, is due to the fact that it does not contain any harmful chemicals. If you are passionate about natural skin care products I would highly recommend you treat yourself to ‘Josie’s Botanical’ range
I was lucky enough to stumble across Barbara on the Internet. She has since been a positive inspirational influence on my life. Her standard of teaching and passion for what she does is almost palpable. I was lucky enough to be an Indian head massage student and natural facial student of hers.She is extremely precise about her delivery of her courses so rest assured you are learning from the best. I wish you well Barbara as you deserve it. If you're thinking of doing a course with Barbara.. Stop thinking and sign up.
Barbara is without doubt the best therapist I have found. Initially I sought treatment for a neck injury of which Barbara's magic hands just relieve the muscle knots that build up. I also avail of her natural facials and in particular her facial rejuvenation treatment of which the results are fabulous. I have been using the Moisturising cream for a long time and it is so hydrating and leaves a natural glow. Lately I've started using the cleansing balm and again it is so gentle yet effective on the skin. My daughter has also had her first facial from Barbara (although I have had to tell her not to expect the same in a salon as you would not get such individual attention to "your needs" in a beauty salon as what Barbara gives.)
Barbara is such a warm, caring individual that you'll think you've known her all your life - such is her charm. Beautiful Lady, Highly recommend her.
Barbara has been doing therapeutic massage with my daughter with complex needs for the last 8 years. During her time with us Barbara has been an absolute godsend, as not only has she made my daughter's life more comfortable as she has very tight muscle tone and her massage technique with Brooke has worked wonders for her, she has also supplied us with her natural products which we both use and find them very beneficial for my daughter as she is allergic to most shop bought products. Since using Barbara's skincare and deodorants Brookes skin hasn't broken down once and my skin is glowing.We both would like to wish Barbara the best of luck with all her new beauty products but judging from our experience using them she will not need it.
Just completed a Natural Skincare Facial course with this amazing lady Barbara. 12 in our Reflexology Group completed it. What a truly beautiful course and taught in a most relaxed way. I couldn't speak highly enough about it. Barbara's products are all so natural and made with love and care. Thank u so very much Barbara and thanks for coming to Donegal X
LOVE my natural deodorant and the wonderful hydrating skin moisturiser for Dylans skin. It's the only thing that's stopped the itch and calmed it down, and I had tried so many other products. Thank you so much.
I recently done the Indian Head Massage course with Barbara and although wed only just met I felt I knew her for years. Lovely warm, bubbly, welcoming person and very professional at her job. We had two wonderful days of learning and I'd recommend this course to anyone. Thanks Barbara x x
Barbara is a wonderful therapist who makes you feel very comfortable and relaxed as soon as you meet her. I have been using her beautiful mosturising cream for the past few years, and can honestly say its the best cream I've ever used, my skin craves it now if I run out.
After years of trying different skin care brands to suit my skin type. I opted to try Barbara's range of products. I felt such a difference from the first use. The cleansing balm not only smells define but also leaves your skin feeling clean and smooth. I love the moisturiser, it is really hydrating.
My skin, for the first time in a long time looks clean, smooth and healthy and hydrated with a natural glow. I can't wait to add more of these products to my skincare routine.
I did a natural facial course & indian head massage course a few years ago with Barbara and both were absolutely wonderful. She is a fantastic teacher and so enthusiastic about holistic, natural products. I was delighted to hear about her new range & treated myself to the moisturiser, lip balm, healing flower balm and the deodorant. I haven't used a spray deodorant since; i absolutely love it! My skin has never been softer using the moisturiser; its so luxurious and a little goes a long way. I used tbe healing balm on sore muscles from the gym and it really helped. Barbara is a natural when it comes to all things natural and you just know the time & love put into the products can only yield great results! Looking forward to sampling more lovely goodies in the future!! Keep up the good work Barbara xxx
