OriginEarth began when I was looking for a Christmas present for my daughter-in-law’s mother – a very difficult lady to buy for! I knew that she liked carnation fragranced toiletries, but these aren’t that easy to find. I’d thought about trying soap making, so decided to make some toiletries for a Christmas gift. I was quite pleased with the result, and had great fun in making the products, so have gone on to producing items for sale.
I was almost put off by the legal requirements and set-up costs, but have persevered. Once set up, the required paperwork isn’t that difficult to maintain.
I obtain all of my ingredients from reputable UK based suppliers.
I’m based in West London, but know the area around Hemel Hempsted and High Wycombe quite well, so that is my preferred area for craft fairs, at which I have stalls from time to time. Events for which I have bookings are listed on the Events page. Please do come along if you happen to see one in your area. I’m sure it’s best for you to see the products ‘in the flesh’ as it were, and I’m always happy to chat to people and answer any questions you may have. Of course, you can email me with questions using the ‘Contact’ feature at any time. I’ll reply to any messages asap.
