How it all began
I first started making natural products many moons ago with my mother, Jane, as we both suffered with the curse of eczema which would generally flare up just before going to an event when I was hoping to look my best. The prescription from the doctors was always a ‘skin thinning’ steroid to apply twice a day which went against the grain for various reasons, so this was when we set to and produced a natural remedy.
This led to creating multiple natural products for my family, friends and even our pets who have used them successfully for years. Growing up in the country we had many ingredients on hand, comfrey was one that stands out in my memory as we grew it specifically to make a poultice for our ponies if they had a sprain. To add to our homemade products my mother would source natural ingredients and make some sensational beauty creams, lip balms, natural lipsticks and sunburn lotions and in our latter years an array of pain relief remedies for arthritis and joint pains with astonishing success.
Being creative and inventive has always been a large part of my life in many different areas and has naturally led to the inspiration behind producing this new range of luxurious beauty creams and butters.
I have researched all the ingredients over the years to find the most suitable formulations for all skin types and created a range of products based upon this knowledge.
Since going on maternity leave to have my granddaughter, my daughter-in-law, Jade took an interest in what i do so together we formulated the current range of products we have. This meant we were able to try out new formulations and really pick out the best possible combinations of ingredients and we are really pleased with the outcome.
Jade is now a full time mum at home but has chosen to join me on this journey and we are selling our products together.
We were also very keen to concentrate on minimising our plastic use and being as environmentally friendly as possible.
The decision to do this was easy, with the world in crisis from single use plastics and micro beads flowing into waterways and oceans destroying our ecosystem now was the perfect time to produce the best natural beauty products possible and to start sharing our eco-friendly products with the world.
