SOME THINGS TO KNOW
ABOUT OUR PRODUCTS,
In these uncertain times we’ve decided to start small –
a small range of small-sized products, hand-made in small batches.
Our products are made with natural ingredients.
As with anything from nature, the products will change slightly over time. They will age, like a good wine.
Importantly, the products will vary slightly from batch to batch, due to their hand-made nature as well as natural ingredients.
We have chosen to use paper labels, instead of plastic. They will likely get a bit grubby over time, and we apologise for that – but we hope you’ll agree that using a material other than plastic wherever possible is a good idea.
When you receive one of our packages, you’ll see that we also print the rest of our wrappings and leaflets on paper. (Hopefully we’ll find an alternative to a bubblewrap-lined padded envelope in the future).
Once you’ve finished a product, we hope that you will re-use the bottle – just wash and soak it in hot soapy water to clean off the oil residue and label.
We are still learning and developing our ideas for perfumes. They were a key idea when starting 1981, so we’ve included ‘perfumes’ in our by-line even though we don’t have anything ready yet – but watch this space.
We don’t test on animals. We test on ourselves and on friends and on family.
We may ask our dog Bonnie what he thinks of a certain scent from time to time. His nose is very well-trained.
We make things that we like; things that we want to use personally.
We are self-taught, and we’re still learning.
Let’s see where this goes.
