Like the name suggests, the team at Naturally Thinking believe in knowing where the ingredients in their aromatherapy and skincare products come from. And so, the botanicals used in their products are organically grown in fields near Banstead to make sure they’re 100% natural – more than 50 acres of lavender, peppermint, chamomile, rosemary, basil, sage and thyme are grown on the farm, providing over 100 different botanical extracts.
These are combined with the finest natural ingredients sourced from throughout the world to create essential oils and skincare products including moisturisers and skin serums, body scrubs, facial wash and cleansers, shower gel, hair care products. They also produce aromatherapy candles and massage oils.
Gorgeously scented, and wonderful for the skin and the mind – they’re available online as well as at their own shops in Carshalton and Croydon. There’s also a zero-waste range of products available at the moment at the Croydon store.
Naturally Thinking also offer courses in how to make natural cosmetic products. Courses are from 1 day to 3 days – and are attract a variety of people including those who want to learn for fun, to those who are more serious about producing their own skincare brands.
And exciting news!! From spring 2020 – you can visit Little Woodcote Estate Farm where there’s a new shop and a café which will offer a range of home-cooked food – some some of which is grown in the fields. The fields are at their most beautiful from June to September when the lavender is in full bloom and the fringes of the field are awash with colour from other botanicals.
