3 Irish Brands Worth Supporting Right Now

Like any crisis we’ve endured in the past, COVID-19 is inspiring moments of uplift and solidarity. Here are some of the brands we've decided to shine a spotlight on.

Supporting local has never been more important. 

While we've grown to understand that by way of 'staycations' this summer, what better way to show Irish creatives that we appreciate them than opting for their products over more international brands. 

The products below have become mainstays in my daily routine – meaning I can seriously vouch for them – and have become my first choices when it comes to gifts and special treats.

For those of you who feel the need to highlight any products you adore, please let us know in the comments. 

1. Spotlight Oral Care 

Founded by two Galwegian dentists, these ladies know their stuff and have produced products that actually work. Their whitening strips are especially brilliant (especially given that they're specially formulated for teeth sensitivity) and their bamboo toothbrushes are among the sturdiest I've used.

2. Modern Botany 

A West Cork-based brand inspired by harnessing the best of natural plant-based beauty. With products so gentle that they can be used by anyone, even breastfeeding mothers, I swear by their best-selling oil for bringing my skin and hair back to life. 

3. Yogandha Daily Wellbeing Oils

Having long been a sceptic when it came to the realm of aromatherapy, I was instantly taken aback upon first using Yogandha products. Soothing, grounding and with scents so beautiful your mum will want to rob them – these products will ensure a calmer day.

Spray or roll them onto your PPE mask to ensure an anxious-free day in a weird time.
