About Us

Where it all began...

When I fell pregnant with my son, I really started to question all the products I was coming into contact with in my daily life.  Ranging from the shampoo I was putting on my head to the nail varnish I was applying to my toes, plus everything else in between!  That then led me to simplify the way I was living and go back to basics.

Through the desire to cut out all of the unnecessary toxic chemicals, live a like that was kind to myself as well as the planet, reduce my reliance on large corporations to supporting smaller ethical businesses and aim to ideally eliminate my use of plastics, I started to change, which included making my own toiletries.  And then I thought, why not share this with others too.

I hope you enjoy, Nirosha
