welcome to lucy's soap kitchen, my home studio in rural leitrim, ireland

...Hello, I'm Lucy,  it's good to see you! Let's have a vitual mug (always a mug) of tea and I'd love to share with you a few things 'about me'.

I need to have my hands in the soil, to breathe outside, be creative and I work hard to be the nurturing mama my two girls need.

I'm an Irish based natural soapmaker working from my (often messy!) home studio in rural Leitrim. It's a converted attic space and I cover the sloped ceiling walls in happy photographs. It's ledges are filled with beautiful things, gathered from other makers and creatives, that inspire me.    

Having had flares of urticaria in my teen and adult life, I understand how completely miserable experiencing red and itchy skin is. My eldest lady has life threatening nut anaphylaxsis. My littlest lady manages eczema, which she's had from birth. As a result, Lucy's Soap Kitchen natural skincare is nut free and sensitive, eczema prone, skin friendly.

Clean and simple skincare. Plant based natural products to help reduce the synthetic chemical overload and gently calm itchy skin. I create what has been tried and tested to work for me and my girls.

I believe in slower paced, more sustainable living. I believe in keeping life simple and I believe in growing my own vegetables and herbs organically. You'll find me in my old, taped together at the seams, 30 x 15 foot poly tunnel and weedy but productive kitchen garden. 

I don't wholesale my soap and skincare as selling direct to my customers gives me the flexibility to support my girls in the way they need and in the life I choose. 

Enjoy browsing and send me a message via the contact us form with any questions. If you already know you want to hear more, please do join my email 'nuachtlitir' list (you can click to sign up here). I'm popping into inboxes on the first and third Sundays of each month  (give or take a few days at busy times...).  More recently I dip in and out of instagram and facebook, although I'm trying to have more social 'flow'... (remember I've got these feet and hands in soil and disappearing behind the 'going to seed' coriander).

Speak soon,
Lucy x
