About


Good quality organic ingredients should be affordable for everyone and need not cost the earth...literally.

Our COSMOS certified Organic creams and lotions are infused with natural oils to suit skin types, helping to keep your skin nourished and healthy. Oleum infusions give an intensive treatment to help improve the look and condition of your skin.

Handmade rustic soaps are prepared using quality oils, shea butter and essential oils, and not from pre-made gel. Like all natural soap they need to be kept dry between use, so they last a lot longer. Pop them on a soap dish, simple as that.

We used recyclable packaging wherever possible. Natural and sustainable is the way forward.

Testimonials


 I came across earthenbynature shortly before the lockdown at Reading Farmers’ Market where I bought a jar of the clementine face-cream. I loved it and have just purchased a larger jar and several other products, both for myself and as gifts. For me the face-creams have a perfect consistency: they are light and yet feel nourishing to the skin. The scents are delicate and natural; the clementine cream is particularly delightful – the scent which greets you on unscrewing the lid reminds you of peeling an actual fruit. Likewise, the handmade soaps have a very attractive, delicate appearance and a natural perfume. They produce a very good lather and do not disintegrate on use. The earthenbynature website is straightforward and attractive, and communication very easy and prompt, even for buying products during lockdown. Prices are competitive. I bought beeswax wraps as a gift and liked the fact that you can choose your own fabrics. Everything arrived attractively and environmentally-friendly packaged. I shall certainly continue to shop with earthenbynature, both for myself and as gifts."
