It's a hand-made range inspired by the double whammy of all things natural and all things vintage. She produces a range of face and body balms and sells them in antique tins, pill boxes, compacts and other original bits of packing. There's a fascinating range available, such as the 1930s compact pictured with is filled with the rosy balm for use on the face.
