NATURAL HANDMADE SOAPS AND SKINCARE
Welcome to Heather's Hands!
Here at Heather's Hands in the hills of north Cumbria I make my natural handmade soaps using a traditional cold process method.
I use nature to colour my soaps with Olive Oil infused with plants and spices or coloured cosmetic clays to produce their amazing natural colours and I use essential oils for a natural scent. I use no Palm Oil, SLS (sodium lauryl sulphate) or parabens in my soaps.
I also make natural skincare products including: lip balms, shampoo bars, conditioner bars, bath salts, whipped body butter and deodorants in scents to compliment my soaps, as well as clay masks, beard oils and essential oil reed diffusers.
My products are designed to be gentle on the skin, smell amazing and be wonderful for everyday use as well as for that "something different" present you may be looking for.
My Natural Collection soaps are made with Shea Butter to be richly moisturising and are available in:
Tea Tree & Mint - coloured with Comfrey leaves
Lavender & Rosemary - coloured with Alkanet root
Bergamot, Sweet Orange & Ylang - coloured and decorated with Calendula petals
Vetivert & Cedarwood - with added pumice stone, very good for cleaning those extra dirty hands
My Vegan Collection soaps are made using Olive Wax together with Mango Butter and are available in:
Orange, Clary Sage & Clove - coloured with exfoliating Nutmeg powder
Lemongrass & Patchouli - coloured with green cosmetic clay and with added poppy seeds
I've always loved to make things. After having my own family, and suffering from mild eczema and asthma, I wanted to use more natural products that were kind and gentle, while still smelling beautiful, so I started experimenting making my own handmade soaps. This led to my Natural Collection soaps being made with Shea Butter to make them rich and moisturising for your skin, followed by my Vegan Collection soaps with Olive Wax rather than Beeswax.
After this I decided to try my hand at other products and now my range of products has grown to include: lip balms, shampoo and conditioner bars, bath salts, clay masks, body butter, reed diffusers, beard oils and deodorants.
I love to look round my bathroom and not see all the plastic bottles that used to fill it - instead it is filled with beautiful scents and gentle products.
I'm always trying out new recipes and thinking of new products to launch - you can keep up to date with my latest news on Facebook and Instagram.
