Handmade Organic Soap & Beauty Products Online, UK
Behind the gable door and timeworn step, hides an apothecary for the senses. Blocks of organic handmade soap, dotted with rosebuds and cinnamon sticks, nestle in wicker baskets. Earthenware bowls, filled with dried flowers, herbs and spices, brighten the table. And the air is scented with organic handmade soap and beauty products, gently hand-stirred to retain the natural goodness. Here, time takes a back seat – and one batch of organic handmade soap takes a whole day to perfect.
After a long day in the office, designer Jacqui Sheard would unwind by making bars of crafted organic handmade soap. It was a passion that became a profession when she found a cosy little shop in Lacock and started Quintessentially English.
Behind our products is an age-old philosophy: When you touch a flower you disturb a star. It’s an idea that goes right back to medieval times when herbalists combined the sciences of medicine and astronomy – and flowers, linked to the stars, were used for their healing properties. Like these early sages, we believe there’s a connection, between earth and air, fire and water – an energy that flows through everything: a quintessence.
At Quintessentially English, we make organic handmade soap, natural beauty products, and luxurious toiletries – for your head, right down to the tips of your toes, available in our store and online. You’ll find everything from handmade organic soaps, sublime shampoos, perfumes and face creams, to ‘me time’ massage oils, fizzy bath bombs, bath melts and Shea butter lip balms. Organic handmade soap and beauty products aside, there are all sorts of gifts from vintage treasures and home accessories to discover, like beeswax candles, silkscreened cushions and enamelware. All created by local british artisans – and selected for their rustic beauty and good, old-fashioned quality.
As well as supplying beautiful organic handmade soaps and beauty product gifts online, we also run courses in organic soap making in Lacock, UK. Our team of specialists will teach you how to make natural soaps during an exciting and interesting day course which takes place in a lovely calm environment. At the end of the organic soap making workshop you will have learnt the essentials and secrets of creating beautifully smelling and gentle soaps and you'll leave with a gift, plus a personalised batch of handmade soap made by you!
