You must be the change you wish to see in the world

Last Saturday I was walking along the beach with a friend, discussing life, love and all that goes with it. We noticed that dotted around were little coloured lollipop sticks, with a note saying “if you found me take me home” and on the other side a little quote. And this was mine “You must be the change you wish to see in the world”.

No point crying over spilt milk… or should we say, damaged lip balms!

We have found over the years that we inevitably end up with odd boxes of products that we can’t sell for one reason or another. It may be that they were earlier stage formulations where we haven’t quite perfected the colour and smell, or it could be that the packaging gets damaged, or perhaps we have things with a too short shelf life (one of the dangers with natural products)

Come and Meet the Maker at the Great Yorkshire Shop

This Saturday (27th February) I will be spending the day at the lovely Great Yorkshire Shop in Leeds.

Situated in the beautiful Corn Exchange building, this is a relatively new store that opened its doors to the public in November. Started by Aeneas Brewster, the shop only sells things that have been made in Yorkshire. When we were approached with a view to supplying them with our products, we didn’t need to think twice, as it is such a great concept.

Product Spotlight – Soothing Skin Cream

In this blog, I’m going to tell you a little bit about our Soothing Skin Cream.

It was formulated, developed and tested by our very own Managing Director, Cecily Fearnley.

She noticed that there were a few products that were helping slightly, but not clearing the problem entirely. Cecily decided to cherry pick the beneficial ingredients that alleviated her dry/itchy skin and formulate a new product which contained all of those wonderfully soothing elements
