After finishing my degree in Herbal Medicine, I set up Herbal Harmony in 2005 and began making natural skincare to treat my clients and sell to customers. Over the years I developed & extended my product range into hand creams, face creams, lip products, cleansers, cold process soaps and felted soaps. I’ve recently moved from Dorset to Bradford on Avon in Wiltshire and teach a range of Soapmaking and skincare classes alongside making my own natural soaps and cosmetics.
