 From January 2023, we have our new lab....hurrah! This will be devoted to research and development in skin and hair care.

We extract phytonutrients from our sustainably grown plants. They contain useful properties beneficial to skin and hair repair and they smell beautiful. We also use vitamins and minerals we are unable to produce, from carefully sourced suppliers around the world, who share our passion for quality and sustainability

 We have been offering our locally manufactured perfumes since 2017. 

Our perfumes are for individuals who appreciate subtle and complex scents, carefully constructed by a qualified perfumer. (These are not perfumes that leave the crowd reeling as you waft by), they have depth and complexity. They suit people who prefer an 'old-school' scent construction, made in a contemporary style. Our rose smells like roses growing in a garden, not a synthetic version and our woody note are from beautiful aged sandalwood, cedars, pine, cypress and a patchouli so clean and dry it is barely a base note!

We offer most skincare and all perfumes in small sizes, so you can try before committing to a large bottle. For very special occasions, we can work with you to make a bespoke scent. These take time (a month minimum) as our perfumes contain more than a hundred ingredients and need time to blend before they settle - but for the adventurous connoisseur, it's a bottled adventure that lasts forever.

Our best-selling Rose Absolute Cream with rose, algae and green tea extract. Now in it’s fourth revamp, with enhanced antioxidant protection. This is typical of our formulating style: packed with nutrients for both immediate hydration and long term restoration. As new skin research is published, we re-evaluate our formulations. 
Our formulating philosophy is the same throughout, whether it’s a simple hydrosol cleanser or a serum with peptides more precious than gold…
We make it as effective as it can be, using the  best we can find.
                                                                         As seen in:
Fragrantica 

We have two shampoos and two conditioners. One for dry, ‘difficult’ hair and one for fine hair and sensitive skin. The concentrated recipes mean that a small one cap full will clean a head of medium length hair. The important bit is to leave it on long enough for it to work - one minute for shampoo two for conditioner.

 If you really like big, foamy bubbles, then these may disappoint. Bubbles are not what cleans hair, although its an old association we all have. Our shampoos have quite unimpressive foam, as we use gentle surfactants, derived from plant extracts. Our conditioners contain the sort of proteins and vitamins that are more commonly found in skincare. These work best on ‘problem’ hair and on scalps that feel uncomfortable after washing with harsh chemicals (I’m afraid its those bubbles…). So if your hair needs some TLC and you can live with small bubbles, we may have what you are looking for.

Packaging
We have adopted a novel approach. We use our indigenous, pesticide-free, sustainable crops in our packaging too. Instead of using bubble wrap and plastics, we pad boxes with bags of our own, home-grown lavender and rose petals. These cushion the contents and ensure they arrive smelling lovely too.
Lavender bags
When we need to use ready-made packaging, we continue our commitment by sourcing sustainable materials: recyclable glass bottles, Post Consumer Recycled (PCR) plastic material, (including rPET and rHDPE). Please re-use the bottles and jars where you can.
Our tissue papers and card is recycled.

Our plants provide us with their very clever photochemicals and benefit the local environment too- so everyone gains from botanical beauty!
