At Lola's Apothecary heart is a belief in wellness & a holistic approach to life. They believe a holistic lifestyle can be enhanced by moments of sensory indulgence, and are inspired to create couture beauty products that marry fine fragrance with effective natural skincare - bringing the sophistication and decadence of luxury cosmetics back to the realm of natural beauty. From their farm kitchen in the English countryside, Lola's Apothecary formulate and hand blend beauty wonders in micro batches to ensure freshness and quality. Lola and Dominic wish that their lovingly handmade products not only bless one with gorgeous skin, but also become a welcome part of a self care ritual, providing a momentary retreat from the vivid dance of life. For a mini mindfulness practice, add a few drops of bath oil in a mug of hot water, creating a cocoon of wellness, filling the air with comfort. Sit with the fragrant water for a few minutes, observe the oil swirling in the water, inhale the fragrant steam and listen to your breath.
Lola’s Apothecary began as these dreamy stories do, with a whimsical girl and a rose, in a fabulous city of bright lights and large umbrellas, the city of London. Lola adores roses, fresh air and random acts of kindness. Dancing through the old city, she masqueraded as a creative professional, while mostly lingering at perfumeries and tea shops. In her tiny kitchen, alongside exotic spices and sweet delights, she would conjure up homemade potions to care for her sensitive skin. After gifting a friend, her fragrant things became sought after via word of mouth. Lola was inspired to create a range of wonders that marries effective natural skincare but with perfumed glamour. Lola was joined by Dominic, an intrepid soul who shares Lola’s vision of beauty and grace. In winter 2013, they embarked on an adventure to find a new home - now they run Lola’s Apothecary on a picturesque cattle farm in Devon, in between cooking, tending to the vegetable garden and lashings of clotted cream.
At Lola's Apothecary, each bottle encapsulates a miracle of nature: naturally active ingredients and potent botanical extracts are ethically sourced and thoughtfully blended to promote deep healing and radiance. 100% natural, vegetarian and all made in the UK, their naturally fragrant things are free from synthetic fragrance, mineral oils, sulphates, parabens and other undesirable chemicals. Most of the products do not contain any preservatives at all; they only use natural preservatives and antioxidants where necessary. Lola's Apothecary believe wellness springs from a well of self love, and living kindly includes being kind to yourself. To love yourself is a life-long romance, an incessant work in progress that deepens with routine self care. Lola's Apothecary hope that their fragrant things will inspire you to fall in love with yourself by establishing touch with your skin, and become a blissful part of your daily life. Always evolving, they even have their own tea, which you'll find in their beautiful gift sets.
