Natural nourishment – a dozen new ways to help your skin feel good.


Every one of these twelve new and beautiful soaps has been carefully hand crafted using a blend of olive oil, coconut oil, and shea butter. We’ve used an age-old traditional method that means each bar retains all of the soap’s naturally released glycerine. It’s a method which helps produce a wonderfully natural moisturising soap, with a rich creamy lather which is kind and nourishing to even the most sensitive of skins.

Free from Parabens, SLS and palm oil, this exciting range is loaded with ingredients to hydrate, soothe, and pamper the skin. Made using only the finest natural ingredients, pure essential oils, herbs, spices and flowers – these soaps are naturally kinder on the environment too.


All beautifully packaged into perfect recyclable little boxes, each bar has unique properties which will help you relax, and indulge your senses, with some wonderfully unexpected exfoliates. The only problem is working out which one you’ll try first!

All our essential oil soaps are:

• Made using only the finest essential oils.
• Beautifully coloured using herbs, spices, flowers and clays, with some wonderfully unexpected exfoliates, try our aduki bean soap and see!
• Individually boxed into perfect recyclable little boxes.
• New increased weight, all our soap bars are cut by hand and have a minimum weight of 95g each.
