Essential Spirit

We are is an environmental award-winning company, making handmade soap for 15 years in the traditional cold process method which produces a superior soap and avoids waste. 

All ingredients used are 100% natural, sustainable and traceable to source, ensuring environmental responsibility. Our gift boxes are made with recycled card and our soap is wrapped in Fair Trade handmade paper. The palm oil we use is certified sustainable. 

We are dedicated to producing luxurious handmade soap for people who care about the environment as well as themselves. 
All our products are cruelty-free, free of synthetics, vegetarian, ethical and totally gorgeous!

We are based in Eskdalemuir on the banks of the river Esk in Dumfries & Galloway.  We share this peaceful valley with Samye Ling, a monastery and international centre of Tibetan Buddhist training. We are inspired by the natural world and wise & compassionate people, such as the Dalai Lama.

My main achievement is creating a beautiful, natural and ethical product that embodies the spirit of nature and has minimal impact on the environment. Every time I finish making a batch of soap, I yodel the 1812 overture – what was I saying about living in a peaceful valley!
