Handmade soaps and candles from Northumberland. Soap making started as a hobby for Alex, with family, friends and neighbours being given soap as gifts, the sales soon followed. Our soap is carefully made, wrapped and finished all by hand. The ideas and recipes were developed by Alex over 12 months to ensure they were just right.
The soap is as natural as we can get it and does not have any hidden nasties. We use olive oil for added moisture and the finest essential oils are blended to benefit the skin and to create soothing scents. Botanicals are added at the end of the soap making process to complement each bar or for a good scrub!
