Oops, you've done it again. Not only have you dazzled your co-workers with the Robot, Running Man, and your Gangnam style (all while wearing a lampshade), you've also shown extreme skill in emptying the punch bowl and now you're paying for it the next day. You lay in bed (still wearing the lampshade), the room is spinning, your head is pounding, and your stomach is rocking like a hurricane. What have you done?

Don't be the only guest at the party... invite a friend!
You've jingled your bells, hung the lights, and decorated the tree. How else to make the season merry and bright? Bring out the punch bowl and get into a lather! We were inspired to make a fruity, tropical, boozy punch scent for our Mr Punch soap, and we did so with juniper berry oil, blackcurrant absolute, lime oil and a splash of gin and poured it into the shape of a punch bowl. Just the thing to cheer you up on cold winter mornings.
