Handmade Natural Bath & Body Products
Growing up in a European/Middle Eastern family, I learnt very quickly, that if you needed something, you either grew it or made it yourself. As a young child, I spent much time with my Italian grandparents, learning the traditional ways of cultivating and harvesting for the seasons ahead. We would spend months preparing foods for the family to enjoy. A particular fond memory I have is watching in awe as my Nonna would strive away at making her own soap. Her multi-purpose recipe was used to clean everything from the laundry, the dishes and we would even bathe in it. At the time, I didn’t appreciate the elbow grease involved and how something so simple, was made with great love and care.
In 2014, after completing my studies in Natural Therapies, I realised instantaneously, that I had finally found my passion. The world of essential oils and herbal remedies blew my mind and I was captivated. I set about replacing my personal skincare products, which were not only toxic, but contained a list of ingredients I could not pronounce. I was determined to create a range of naturally derived skincare, which was simple, non toxic and transparent in the ingredients contained.
The birth of my daughter, Luna, was even more of a driving force and my journey to set an example for something worth fighting for, was embarked.
