Hi, I’m Caroline. I make herbal healing creams,salves and more from native UK, wild hedgerow herbs & flowers. I came to this after doing herbal medicine & foraging courses for years, I then had a little girl who developed eczema, so I started experimenting making herbal salves and hit upon my Calm-it-down, chickweed-based cream which cleared it in 3 days! And I’ve not looked back…
I now make a range of natural herbal, healing creams, salves, deodorants and other products on a small scale from my home. I use locally foraged herbs where possible, as wild herbs are stronger, growing away from pollution. Where possible I infuse all oils twice with fresh herbs each time for extra potency, in my homemade solar cooker in the garden if the sun is shining. I put as much of the herbs as possible into the products to pass on all their benefits. All the other ingredients are as natural, organic and the best quality I can source. The containers are all recyclable, or re-usable if you bring them back to me, and I make a donation to the Baby Bank Network for every 3 returned pots. All products are best kept out of direct sunlight […]
I have volunteered on farms and learned about horticulture over the years with the aim of having a more intimate connection with food, how it is grown and where it comes from. I learned how to make kimchi whilst studying on a horticulture course in Devon and since then have made and eaten kimchi as part of my staple diet. I started the business in Autumn of 2017 because I realised that friends and family really like the taste of the kimchi that I was making and that I also enjoyed the process of transforming food from a farm into something even more delicious and healthy. There were other kimchi brands out there, but none that I could see that were made in Bristol and also sourced the vegetables from nearby farms, which I thought was important due to my desire to have a closer connection to where food comes from. I’m inspired by local rowers, makers, artists and generally the spirit to be creative and independent
