Recently an article in The Stylist spoke about the increasing pressure from sexual health research to improve the options and expectations we have for men and their involvement in contraception. The journalist writing it actually felt that contraception should be kept in the control of the woman. I disagree.
At present, most options of contraception revolve around disrupting the hormones of a woman. In fact, most research up till now has been around options for a woman to take. This is because we have, up till very recently, seen baby making and family care as primarily the job of a woman. As those views shift we start to wonder if men should be more involved at the first point of contact; contraception.

Let me introduce you to Anu. She is the bright light behind the Anuuk brand. Bringing you naturally scented oils and candles. I am now stocking her oils on the website so it's easy for you to incorporate scent into your daily life. I especially like the oils because they are so adaptable. I've burnt them in my room, I've put some in the bath, I've worn a little as perfume and even taken it for massages with me. I worked in natural beauty care for 7 years before starting Forage and I feel that I've smelt the same old natural scents for years. That's why when I smelt Anu's products I knew this was something different. She does not compromise on quality and the oils she makes are out of this world. Let's hear a little from the maker to discover why she does what she does.
