Life continues to change day by day in the Outer Hebrides, as it does around the world, and we’re all learning to adapt to the new situation we’ve found ourselves in following the COVID-19 outbreak. Here at Essence of Harris, we continue to fulfil our online home fragrance orders, but have also started to produce hand sanitiser for our amazing front line services and the wider island community here in the Outer Hebrides.
Our hand sanitiser, named “Spirit of the Hebrides”, is truly an island project. We collaborated with the Isle of Harris Distillery to use their alcohol in our WHO-recommended recipe and have, together with the distillery, started distributing the sanitiser to our most vulnerable islanders throughout Harris and Lewis. We're also so thankful for the other island businesses who provided their help and support- Graphite Signs, Stag Bakeries, Hebridean Soap Company to name a few. Collaborations which make us so proud to be from the Outer Hebrides. 
As we’re prioritising our front-line services and essential workers, we are giving out the sanitiser for free- a gesture we hope can improve the safety and well-being of our wonderful key workers throughout the Hebrides.

We have been blown away by the support we’ve received from those in the community, businesses on the island offering their help, and our followers online sending messages of support. We’re all facing uncertain times together, and seeing how supportive everyone has been has given our team here on Harris such a boost.
We are working with limited supplies, but have been doing our best to distribute to as many people in the Outer Hebrides as we can. If you know someone who is in need, send us an email to info@essenceofharris.com and we'll try our best to get a bottle to them.
Hope you’re all safe and well x
