Oakwood Soaperie

Based within the Historic National Trust property of Gibside nr Rowlands Gill, I hand make natural soaps, bathing products, skincare and soy candles from raw ingredients. My soaps are made the traditional way with pure plant oils, natural clays, botanical infusions and pure essential oils. I grow the majority of my flowers and seeds organically in my botanical plot within the 18th C walled garden within the Estate. I handpick and dry them in my studio for use as decoration and as natural infusions for my natural products. Some even become natural and colorful petal confetti.

I use only ethically sourced or sustainable ingredients which are plant based, natural and pure, ensuring everything is as gentle and nourishing as it can be when it goes onto your skin. All of my products are suitable for vegetarians, all but a small number are also suitable for vegans too. All are preservative free and free from artificial ingredients. Nothing I make or the ingredients I use are tested on animals.
