We will bring our essential oils and certified organic bodycare products and show you how to care for the body naturally, beginning with a gentle washing of your loved one. This is a very intimate experience; a profoundly respectful, reverent last act of tender, loving care.
Unlike most funeral companies, we are happy to afford you the time to have whatever involvement you would like in caring for your loved one. The people in our care are never the anonymous ‘deceased’. They had a name in life, they have a name in death, and this is how we refer to them.
We leave the body in its natural state and do not undertake any invasive procedures such as embalming unless absolutely necessary.
You may choose to anoint your loved one before dressing in clothing of your choice. In keeping with a natural approach, we suggest natural fabrics of cotton, linen, silk or wool and recommend the minimal use of makeup. We will assist you to lay the body in readiness for others to view if this is desired.
