A bit about our products:
Why did we start making natural products?
We love nature and appreciate everything that Mother Earth gives to us. Our intention is to contribute toward the health of the planet and the happiness of the people around us. Yoga for us is one of the best ways to connect with other people and make this happen. We also try our best to live conscious lives, living by example, with the awareness that every decision – from what we eat, to what we say and do – has an impact on our world.
As a consequence of this, Polly began making natural soap and also sells Neal’s Yard Remedies products. Through these, she attempts to demonstrate that every penny we spend is a vote cast toward or away from a natural, sustainable way of life.
*Caution: The skin nurturing products that Polly makes are so lush, so delicious, so spine-tinglingly awakening that they have been declared by many experts to be “seriously addictive“. You have been warned!*
