About Us

(Dolly Parton and Polly Anna our Bantam Chickens!)
I live in the small village of Storrington, my back windows look onto the South Downs National Park, everywhere I drive around here I am surrounded by countryside which I find so calming and inspiring. 

I came to make soap for several reasons, the children were of an age it left me with time on my hands, my hands were getting arthritic from massage and reflexology so I needed to change.  I am a qualified flower essence practitioner and have always had a passion about flowers and the countryside, this combined with being very interested in how natural things work for us inspired me to make soap a very natural thing.  Another inspiring point was my son closely followed by my eldest daughter.  My son since two has had excema and therefore bath items were a no no even the supposedly safe and natural ones upset his skin.  My eldest can tell you within an hour if you have changed the washing powder, which is now made by me, because her skin will itch and go red.  So washing powder eliminated.  When I make soap the ends often have creases from the greaseproof paper so I grate it or I make it the same way as I do our hair shampoo, yes I make that for the kids.  In my early days of making soap I wanted to make something to help my sons spotty skin so I made a glycerine soap for him to see if we could clear up the spots, so successful I made it in Olive (cold press soap).  Neem today is one of the best sellers and people come back time and again because it works. 
So three years down the road and there is no comparison to the lady who started out with her first bar of soap, I have learnt to make cold press, hot press, melt and pour and bath bombs.  Hair shampoo and washing liquid for the clothes.  I have mastered making iced bath bombs and now have just mastered iced bath bombs with shea butter.  I am moving over to a new web site and on this I want to include recepies and a question and answer page where newcomers to soap can ask the questions.  I have spent hours searching the net for answers but I would like to be there for beginners to point them in the right direction.

- Organic.
When I mention neem oil an awful lot of people have not heard of it.  Neem Oil (Azadirachta indica) - extensive research on the properties of neem oil has shown it to have numerous therapeutic applications not least anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-viral and is highly effective against eczema and scabies. The oil is extracted from the seeds of the evergreen tree usually through cold pressing (which ensures that most of the beneficial properties of the oil are retained). In soap making, neem oil is usually incorporated as a minority oil (around 5%) to make fantastic anti-nit and anti-flea shampoo bars. In pure form, neem oil is extremely potent being used in organic pesticides. Neem oil in soap is safe for use by pregnant women or women wishing to conceive, but, as ever, always seek advice if you are unsure on whether soap containing neem oil is right for you. I have numerous testimonies of how it has cleared up spotty teens skins. Used in our dog soap, Waggy Tail Dog Soap named after our Baily with his constant waggy tail.

The Benefits of Nettles:
- arthritis, and rheumatism.
- anti-inflammatory and very helpful with skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis because of the rich content of histamine, chlorophyll, acetylcholine and iron.

- anti-parasitic, antiseptic, a digestive stimulant, regulates body temperature, helps against celluloid and wrinkles, broken nails, a menstrual promoter, arthritis, muscle wastage, head lice and stimulates hair growth.

- a good source of Vitamin A and C
  Nettles are picked in the fields near where we live and are kindly donated free by the Farmer we do not use dried nettles.   If you have any questions or queries relating to any of the products please feel free to contact Bev.  I have nettle in stock as I sold so much last year I made extra and I have just made a soap with nettles, aloe vera and extra shea butter plus lavender, soothing the skin.  Nettle and neem soap is now available.

NO artificial colourings - NO perfume - NO fragrance, we label our soap with the words FRAGRANCE if we have used it and we tell you to steer clear of it if you have skin problems.- NO Propylene Glycol - NO Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) - NO Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS) The top of our bath bombs do have this - NO Parabens - NO Phthalates - NO MIT - NO Triclosan - NO Methylchloroisothiazolinone - NO Methylisothiazolinone (MIT).....to name but a few of the common 'nasties' you may have seen on other ingredients lists or heard about. - Next time you go shopping, take a moment to look at the ingredients of your usual bath products,....you may be in for a bit of a shock!
