Haeckels Incense, Bog Myrtle

£16.00

Bog Myrtle thrives in the harsh conditions of the northern hemisphere with a long history of being found on the hard to reach paths of mountainous regions and at the top of cliffs along the coastline. It has been used as an insect repellent for these reasons: its location means that walkers and explorers come across the plants when they are being attacked by midges and other insects finding that Myrica gale is proficient in keeping them at bay.

The aroma is sometimes comparable to that of cloves and is often used in flower bouquets for its fragrant qualities which compliment other floral scents.


Mahal Kita Flowers is a creative floral studio based between the city and the seaside, harboured in Margate’s Old Town. Our design philosophy is creating luxury items of transient beauty and high impact for all of life’s highlights, milestones and celebrations.

We work hard to make sure we can offer everyone beautiful flowers all throughout the year. Our style is always a little bit maverick, english-tropical and OTT, using inventive methods and the best seasonal flowers we can get our hands on.

We deliver Thursday and Friday locally, but will happily take requests for additional delivery slots during the week, but this is not guaranteed. For national deliveries we will only do Friday deliveries.

Customers are also welcome to come pick up any arrangements at our workshop in Margate. We aim to deliver between 12:00 and 16:00, and we unfortunately do not dedicate delivery slots. If the recipient is not home, we will try calling, and leave in a safe place or neighbour, we do not offer re deliveries since flowers are perishable goods.
