Our Products

Whilst every effort is made to ensure that the Images of products on our website are accurate, due to the nature of our handmade products their appearance may vary. Our products are made from raw ingredients that are organically produced, those ingredients may vary from season to season depending on environmental conditions.  These changes can slightly affect the appearance, consistency and smell of our products from batch to batch. This is because we use only natural oils and unbleached waxes and butters. The quality and properties of the product will always remain the same.
