about me

hi, i'm lucy...

...I love my retro headscarves, having my hands in the soil, the sea, taking photographs and home educating my two beautiful girls.

I work from my (mostly messy!) home attic studio in rural Leitrim. It's in the middle of a turf bog in midlands of Ireland. I was born in Britain but Ireland has been home for most of my life. 

Having had flares of urticaria for my adult life, I understand how completely irritating red and itchy skin is. My eldest lady has life threatening nut anaphylaxsis and my littlest lady has had eczema since she was born.

I believe in keeping our skincare clean and simple. Plant based natural products created to help reduce your synthetic chemical overload and gently calm sensitive and itchy skin. I create what works for me and my girls.

I believe in slow, sustainable, living. I believe in keeping life simple and I believe in growing my own vegetables and herbs organically. You'll find me in our 30 x 15 foot poly tunnel and kitchen garden as much as possible.

I don't wholesale my soap and skincare as selling direct to you gives me the flexibility to support the life I choose. 

Enjoy browsing and you can send me a message using the contact form if you'd like to ask anything. Feeling social? You'll also find me on facebook, instagram and pinterest!
