“Greensleeves” is a traditional English folk song of the form called a “romanesca”.  It first appeared in 1580, is probably Elizabethan in origin and is based on an Italian style of composition. There is a persistent belief that this love ballad was composed by Henry VIII to seduce his lover and future queen Anne Boleyn but this is untrue as it was not performed until after the King’s death.  At the time, the word “green” had sexual connotations and was linked to fertility and nature so it may be an Elizabethan updating of an old pagan song.

A fresh, timeless blend of clover, lily of the valley, gardenia, wisteria, English ivy, raindrops, mist, freshly-cut wet grass and clean green countryside, laced with delicate Elizabethan herbs.

  Ingredients: sweet almond oil, fragrance oil.

Quantity:  at  £5.99  each
