North Clare company Airmid brings a breath of fresh air to Ennistymon
Visit AIRMID on Main St Ennistymon where you can test the amazing freshly whipped organic body butter, hemp salves and plantain balms. Inhale the amazing blends of essential oil perfumes, sustainable candles and melts. Shop Guaranteed Irish art, craft and gifts from local producers. The design of the Airmid store in Ennistymon includes a vintage bath, salvaged from a forge in West Clare, upcycled and vintage furniture and Airmid’s own twist on retail. Airmid products are specially formulated for sensitive skin and contain no parabens, fragrances or artificial colours. The company began in Kilfenora as a truly home-grown enterprise in 2019, when Kevin, an organic horticulturist and his partner Tina Robinson were struggling to find skin products for their son who was born with eczema. They developed a unique pure chamomile soap, using herbs from their own garden. This was the first product created and is still one of the most popular sold.
All soap bars are made by cold process, cut by hand and are cured for at least six weeks to ensure a luxury, long-lasting product. Since then, Airmid have developed a wide range of skincare products to include hemp salves, organic butters, oils, lotion bars, perfume, balms and gift sets – all with nature at the heart of their design.
As well, grooming has become an essential part of a man’s daily routine and their Green Man range is designed for this. They have held on to one principle as they have grown the range: if it doesn’t come from nature, you won’t find it in any of their Airmid products. It’s that simple. A great deal of care goes into creating their products. And where they can, they shop local for ingredients. Beeswax and honey are collected from all the beekeepers locally, everything is as Irish as possible. When they shop further afield, ethical sourcing is important – they source organic Shea butter from Ghana where it is processed by local women, who are paid a fair price for their work. Dedication to using the purest, unprocessed ingredients is what has defined Airmid since its inception. Airmid are genuine manufacturers and the full Airmid collections are produced by hand in their Kilfenora workshop.
