The RikRak range of scented products is designed by Kit Kemp, and used throughout her Firmdale hotels. This fresh and invigorating cleansing wash features purifying burdock root and restorative lemon balm, as well as orange flower, green leaves and bergamot zest to create a blend reminiscent of an English garden in bloom, and is often spotted in the rooms of the Ham Yard Hotel. 

“The smell of this is really uplifting,” says Pip McCormac. “And is stays on your hands for a long time - in a really wonderful way. I love it, and am so impressed by how pampered I feel when I use it.”

Formulated exclusively with plant-based ingredients, this soft, all-natural wax candle combines rice, soy and copra in an elegant marble vessel, which is topped with a glass cloche to preserves its fragrance and to prevent dust settling onto the wax. Its scent is rich, with hints of juniper and pine, and the cloche actually preserves the fragrance within the candle, so it doesn't fade over time.

“This would make a such a great gift” says Sarah Spiteri. “The cloche really elevates the humble candle into a design piece that looks completely amazing on a shelf or mantle.”
