What's in a number?

Love the idea of making your own natural beauty products at home, but don’t know where to start? The whole thing can seem a little daunting, right? Well, we have designed a system that makes DIY beauty that little bit easier.

Let us introduce our numbering system! We’ve organised our range of natural products into eight simple categories, each with a specific number and colour. Looking for an essential oil, they start with a 1. Carrier oil, they start with a 2. Butters and waxes, 3… you get the idea!

We have the ingredients you need to get started on your natural products revolution. So, come join our community, we’ll be glad to have you.
