A little background information about how Oakwood Aromatics grew from a woman with sensitive skin and a tiny sprout of an idea, to a vibrant colourful fun business with hundreds of regular customers across the world.
From Little Acorns...
... Oakwood Aromatics Grew
Oakwood Aromatics is Kate and Phil Moores and we make gorgeous, all-natural soap and skincare, by hand, in the heart if Yorkshire. We make products that put a smile on people's faces!
We love the fact that Oakwood Aromatics is a small (just the two of us) local business, focused on creating good, natural products in recyclable/reusable packaging, that don't cost the earth.
We deliberately choose to give our products quirky names and a pop of colour. Our products are all suitable for vegetarians and most (but not all) are vegan. Many (but not all) our ingredients are organic and we love to use local ingredients, such as Wharfe Valley Rapeseed Oil. Our honey and beeswax are supplied by Janice Fulton of the Harrogate & Ripon Beekeepers Association. We use Black Sheep Beer in our Stella shampoo bars too!
We live and work in the very beautiful village of West Tanfield. The village has become increasingly popular with cyclists since the Grand Depart of the Tour de France came through in 2014 (complete with a triple-royal visit). Since then we have thrown up decorations, hot air balloons and impromptu bars and cheered like crazy when the Tour de Yorkshire races came through! (Any excuse for a party!)
Random facts. Phil plays base guitar in salsa band Mambo con Rumbo and Kate aspires to being an artist!
