Back in 2009-2010 Michelle had an urge to create her own soap, so gave it a go and loved the results. She wanted something that was as natural as could be, with no nasties in it. Michelle sourced fantastic ingredients...organic if possible...and she was off. There’s only so many bars of soap you can use yourself though, so she researched selling it - the journey began.
The bath goodies - salts, bath/body melts, fizzes and scrubs - soon followed. Again, Michelle wanted the ingredients to be natural, with the bare minimum added, but producing amazing results on the body. She loves the simplicity of them all.
When Michelle started making the makeup remover pads there were a few others about but they were all made with an overlocker. She didn’t like the edge it produced so designed hers differently. Years later she has a few different fabric choices, all with organic fabric where available.
Michelle is passionate about what she does and makes. She believes that simple is best, and that things should be made to last. She tries to use all the fabric scraps to make other bits too...why buy more if you can use up the off-cuts? ☺️
