A soap business in beautiful Devon

Devon Botanicals

I make small batches of soap in the traditional way, all by hand. I use only vegetable oils and the fragrances come from essential oils. All suitable for vegans with no added artificial chemicals. The packaging is either re-usable, recyclable or compostable.

I am often asked why I began making and selling natural soaps.

I am a midwife and this professional part of my life has focused on caring for women and families through pregnancy, birth and the postnatal days. Making soap, using essential oils, tinkering around in the garden studio, stemmed from a desire to bring into my life a creative side. I have loved the journey from sharing my hand made soaps with friends and family to bringing them to the wider public. I am proud of the beautiful packaging, compostable and recyclable, which I developed with a fabulous young illustrator, Lucie Jones.  The pots in some of the images are made by potter Bev Rowe.

I hope that you enjoy using my range of products.
