What happens when an engineering firm in Carlow hooks up with an accomplished aromatherapist in Dublin? Nice things, that’s what.

Petalwell, the new portable diffuser invented by Oglesby & Butler and Fiona Hedigan is a nifty little gadget indeed. On its maiden voyage to London I dropped in the recommended six drops of Travelwell oil, turned the dial to max and in the space of a few minutes had transformed my temporary digs into a space I actually wanted to spend time in, even with all those temptations outside. After dinner and a few drinks Travelwell gave way to Sleepwell, which does what it says on the tin. Result.

This would make the prettiest gift (?120) because for once the packaging is truly world class and doesn’t let the side down. You’d be happy out bringing it as a house gift to the very fussiest of hostesses. (It’s no wonder it did so well when launched at the recent gift fair in New York and that closer to home, Monart will be stocking it in their lovely gift shop.).
