We recommend the diffuser set which includes a tea light candle, a cork coaster for protected use and instructions on how to use.     

With a variety of scents available from Lemon Mist, Orchid Karma and Royal Sandal, you’ll sure to find the perfect varieties to detox and relax.

How many The Mountain tees do you own? (News updated 2nd June 2016)

Thank you to everyone who attended Interzoo 2016, we had a purrfect time meeting you all… pardon the pun!
