Laura explained: “I have always been interested in making potions as a child, and became interested in body balms and their healing properties.”

To create the products, Laura explained that the process involves blending carrier oil, vegan friendly wax and essential oils. The recipe that they follow has been tried and tested (cruelty-free), with certifications.

The products come in different scents, are all priced individually under £10. Lip balms cost £3, hand balms cost £4, foot balms cost £6 and nail and cuticle oil costs £5.
