Founded in 2018, Fifield Road Apothecary has grown at the intersection of quality craft and design, the practice of traditional self-sufficiency skills and a passion for herbalism and wildcrafting.
I make my soap using the time honoured cold process method, working only with plant-based ingredients, ethical suppliers of organic butters and oils, and plastic free packaging. I make everything I sell by hand in small batches. My 'Wildcrafted' designated products incorporate infusions of healing plants which I responsibly forage from the fields and hedgerows on our restorative family farm in the Cotswolds.
A portion of our sales are donated monthly to the global reforestation charity One Tree Planted; we have helped plant over 900 trees since 2021.
I offer botanical soap making workshops a handful of times a year, and local foraging walks several times per season. I usually list the dates for these on my Instagram page @fifieldroadapothecary so do follow along if either of these are of interest.
When I’m not making things for my shop, I can be found working on my herbal studies, sewing a quilt, or wandering through the woods foraging for edible, medicinal and dyers plants and mushrooms.
Please get in touch if you have any questions about my products or practices, wish to enquire about wholesale, or have an idea for a collaboration. I would love to hear from you.
