Here, at The Candle Tree we are delighted to introduce our very own handmade branded soaps. These were handmade by our supplier Mitcheldean Soap and we are extremely excited to collaborate with this expert soap maker. The soaps are beautifully packaged according to the scent of the soap, and make a beautiful gift. Sara, the soap maker has been making great quality soaps for nearly a decade, and our customers love a natural soap, so we have included the customer favourites to The Candle Tree range.
Mitcheldean Natural Soap is a home grown business making traditional handmade soaps bursting with natural fragrance. They are made in The Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire by Sara Gates, who started the business from her own kitchen. In her own words; "I started it as I wanted to work from home because of the children, however it soon outgrew my kitchen and I had to take on a unit. This was much better as I didn't have to keep clearing up to make meals etc, and then get everything back out again. I love that the our soap is never tested on animals just on hubby first. I really enjoy making the batches of soap, it's a bit like cake making but you must not get the two mixed up!"
With 3 years of industry knowledge, we’ve really got to know what it is that our Candle Tree customers like. For me, it felt like a natural way to introduce The Candle Tree branded products. High quality, handmade, local soaps and the help of the wonderful soap maker, Sara Gates, meant we could do this.
So together with Mitcheldean soap we have created a lovely selection of Candle Tree soaps in our brand packaging. These include: Orange & Cinnamon, Rose, Geranium & Lemon, Rosemary & Lavender, Tea Tree & Lime and Vanilla & Orange. Orange & Cinnamon is a seasonal favourite beautifully fragranced with a balance of zesty orange and aromatic spice. All soaps are naturally scented with natural extracts and essential oils.
All Mitcheldean soap bars are made from natural ingredients, no artificial ingredients or nasty chemicals, or parabans and are very kind and gentle to the skin. The quality of the soaps is exceptional and the fragrances are a natural delight. Mitcheldean soap bars contain locally sourced ingredients where possible, for example, the addition of honey is from a smallholding in The Forest of Dean.
There are exceptional benefits of these naturally handmade soaps, with the beauty boosting properties of natural ingredients. Their fresh and aromatic aromas are captivating, the distinct natural oils are unmistakable. Since natural essential oils and natural ingredients are used, these beauty bars have an enticing but light subtle scent. Mitcheldean soaps are gentle and ultra-hydrating. Once infused with essential oils, the combined vitamins and nutrients work together to minimise dry skin, add hydration and deliver naturally cleansed and beautiful skin.
Mitcheldean soaps are not only a great natural essential to your toiletry collection, but also make wonderfully pretty gifts with their unique printed packaging. They are available in-store at The Candle Tree in Gloucestershire and also on our online shop, where you can take a look at our other fabulous products!
