Green Beauty With a DASH of Luxury

All our ingredients are 'active' meaning they have a function. They are high potency, sustainable and where possible soil association certified organic.

Who Started It

If you had to pick 5 words to describe your brand what would they be?

Sensory Inspired Luxury Self Care

What inspired your work? And how did your career journey begin?

I have worked as a health professional for several years specialising in sensory integration, a branch of neuroscience concerned with how the brain processes sensations, such as touch and smell. It was this that sparked my interest in aromatherapy and made me aware of the therapeutic benefits of essential oils. At the time I had ongoing problems with my skin making it reactive, hormonal and at times sensitised. I wanted to harness the synergistic properties of essential oils from a sensory and medicinal perspective to treat myself.

I had some success and knew other people would benefit from them too. I trained as an aromatherapist and found that this, accompanied by my health background gave me a strong foundation for developing a sensory inspired skin oil range and Botanyblend evolved from here.

Whats different about your products?

We are green beauty with a dash of luxury. Each product has a story. We use British suppliers, who source 'soil association certified' organic oils from sustainable farmers belonging to fair trade co-operatives. The aromas really move people, providing a moment of total escape. So much time has been taken to make sure each one is perfect. We make our products in small batches to ensure they are as fresh and as nutrient dense as possible.

What is your top beauty tips?

Always wash your face before bed, pamper your skin with oils, make time for relaxing sensory inspired selfcare and eat healthily.

How do you make your products perfect?

Each product takes couple of years to develop, I am a perfectionist so I make every possible version before I feel they are ready.

I test them on people, listen to feedback, and adapt them until I come up with the perfect formulation. Because of my background I’m driven to make products which are effective. I research all of my products thoroughly until I come up with the right formulation. I then send them to be safety tested with reputable chemists.

What is your career highlight?

My favourite thing is to hear from customers about how much they love products, I never get bored of that!

Why are organic products important?

Scientists at Oxford university found that organic farms support 34% more plant, insect and animal species than conventional farms and have 50% more pollinators such as bees. The soil association is renowned for setting the highest standard of organic certification. We use soil association organic ingredients so that we can be confident our botanical oils have not been genetically modified or grown using pesticides. We can also be confident that by supporting the soil association organic certification we are minimising pollution, working with natural systems not against them, and contributing to building better soil fertility. Also, in my experience organic oils tend to have this beautiful richness and quality to them which I love.

How we do it

We use a rich and pure range of ingredients, chosen for the powerful aromatherapeutic synergies they create, and the ‘active’ nutrients they provide the skin. Where possible we use wild crafted, raw, certified organic ingredients that have undergone the least aggressive extraction to preserve the vital components of the plant.

Suited to all skin types our products are concentrated with fat soluble vitamins, essential fatty acids, antioxidants, and plant pigments. They provide the skin with glowing radiance, improve elasticity, heal, plump, balance, regenerate and help to hydrate the skin.
