Welcome To Ella's Herbal Apothecary
So fast forward 20 years when my first child was born and I began to wonder again at the possibilities. I wanted products that did not contain parabens, that contained only natural ingredients. I have continued to experiment over the last ten years. I make beeswax candles for birthdays and gratitude time at the table and make a cream called Mummy's Magic Cream (because it fixes anything from bruises to hurt feelings to small cuts and even pimples).And now Ella is carrying on this sense of curiosity and delight of 'making from scratch'.

So far lip balm seems to be the hot favourite of recipes but I got a lovely mix of hand and face creams for my birthday and felt very spoilt.
