hi, i'm lucy...

...I need to have my bare feet and hands in the soil, breathe outside, be creative and am constantly working to be the nurturing mama my two girls deserve.

I work from my (often messy!) home studio in rural Leitrim. It's a converted attic space, covered in happy photographs and full of the beautiful things I've  gathered from other makers and creative people that inspire me.    

Having had flares of urticaria for my adult life, I understand how completely miserable red and itchy skin can be. My eldest lady has life threatening nut anaphylaxsis and my littlest lady has had eczema since she was born. (Sensitive lot aren't we!) 

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

Lucy's Soap Kitchen, Natural Irish Skincare
natural soap, made in leitrim, ireland

nut free and preservative free, irish made skincare...

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 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 looking and do send me a message using the contact us form if there is anything you'd like to ask. If you already know you want to hear more, every two weeks (give or  take a few days...) I send a nuachtlitir (you can click to sign up here)  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
