(Update : Alice & White (February 2014) and Reina Organics (January 2015 )
Alice & White: This is a recent discovery, but oh so good! A few months ago, I was trying to get my hands on some Bodhi products. Unfortunately, they were only available in the UK, until Bodhi informed me over Twitter that there was a Swedish online shop that was carrying their products. Alice & White is an online eco-store founded in 2012. I ordered from them and their service is impeccable. They are also the Scandinavian appointed
distributor of some top British natural brands such as Mitchell and Peach, Bodhi or Balance Me.
