When Life Gives You Lemons

I’ve always thought of lemon oil on either end of the spectrum.  It can either force you to screw up your face with bitterness, or the complete opposite when drizzled on a pancake.  I was really quite surprised with the amount of health benefits that lemon oil claims to have!

–>Suddenly find yourself with a nosebleed?  Lemon oil.
–>Coming down with a fever?  Lemon oil.
–>Feel yourself developing a throat infection?  Guess what… lemon

OIL Systems GO!!

Treasury Team finished off 2012 in our usual no.1 spot… yes, we won the Kerfoot Christmas Quiz for the 3rd consecutive year!  This was the highlight of our year – the quiz proved more tense than dealing with Tropos queries, I can promise you that!

2012 however also saw KSO go LIVE on our new TROPOS system with very little teething problems; with KPO & KBO going live this week we are expecting their transition to be as smooth – all orders flying through

KSO Feeling Fruity at SCS – here come the girls!

Monday 12th November

Well, the time has come for the girls to head off on the road down to Coventry for the SCS Formulate exhibition. The car was packed to the rafters & the three of us only just managed to fit in with our cases (well you have to be prepared…hairdryer, straighteners, more outfits than we could possibly need for two days etc!)

We arrived at Ricoh Stadium with the security guards giving us 20 minutes to unpack, set up the stand

Keep the dentist at bay with Coconut Oil

Believe it or not, recent research has suggested that our much loved Coconut Oil can now help to fight tooth decay, and it could soon be winging its way into your toothpaste and mouth wash!  Yet another accomplishment to add to an ever growing list of benefits for one of our favourite oils.

Without boring you, here is  the scientific part… the bacteria Coconut Oil attacks includes streptococcus mutans, an acid-producing microbe that is a major cause of tooth decay. 

Logistics Coordinator swaps office for truck

There is usually only one 4am in my day however on Friday 10th August I discovered there were two as it was my turn to experience a day in a Kerfoot truck.  The route planned was six deliveries of KPO and KSO oil throughout the South Yorkshire area.  Armed with sandwiches and a flask of tea my driver for the day was Dave Hodgson and at 6:30am we departed our Goole James Street factory and headed on our way.

Despite working in Logistics for a few years now I had never

Kerfoot Argan Oil Challenge

Argan Oil is all over the media, it really is the hot topic as the “new super oil for hair and skincare.”

Kerfoot Speciality Oils stock Argan Oil & even we are shocked by how popular this product is proving.  Our own Elizabeth Kerfoot, Executive Director, has been using it for the last few months & now swears by it – forget Creme de la Mer & Lancome apparently!

So the KSO girls and Jennifer Kerfoot have taken up the challenge too.  Instead of

My suitcase has never been so heavy!

There are no shortcuts to any place worth going“.  This is the story of my trip to the UK & to working at Kerfoot HQ in Yorkshire.  My trips have always been unique; unfortunately, I am leaving very soon, but as for any trip I will be taking back a full & even heavier suitcase – packed with new experiences & new challenges, new memories & new friends, new places visited & of course one of the most important ones – new targets

I feel like Alice in Wonderland!

Not more than eight hours have passed since I started the so-called escape from the realm of ice and snow.  It was the beginning of February and the cold wind of the north felt like I was trying to fool him and started blowing fiercefully as I approached the Chisinau Airport hill in Moldova.  It was so cold that I could no longer feel my hands and toes and the air was almost hard to breathe.

Somehow frozen and a little bit dizzy I followed the airport and Duane personnel hoping that
