OAKWOOD SOAPERIE

 Ceri Aitman first discovered about using natural products and real soap- making after graduating in Fashion Design at Northumbria University.

She fell in love with the process of hand-making soap, using natural ingredients and the traditional cold press method, which can take up to 6 weeks! Soaps are then handcut and wrapped in waxed paper with a handmade paper label dotted with dried flower petals. Each bar has full ingredients listing, batch numbers and 'made on' & 'use by' dates.

The business started in 2010 and has gone from strength to strength, and now offers a wide range of bath and skincare products.  All are made with natural, organic ingredients. Ceri even grows her own organic herbs and flowers and sources locally produced Northumbrian honey and beeswax in her range, which she produces from her rural workshop in Northumberland's Tyne Valley. 

Her gorgeous products and her ethos, have earned her a huge following. A couple of years ago Ceri got the chance to show off her soap-making skills on Channel 4's Kirsty's Handmade Christmas programmes.
