Handmade in Leicestershire

About us

Welcome to Cooks Lane Herbs! We are a small family-run herb nursery – small because we grow everything in our back garden in Wigston, Leicestershire. We’re passionate about herbs and use them to make handmade herbal soaps and skin pampering treats. All our plants are grown without propagators, chemicals or electric heat sources.

Our soaps are made using the centuries’ old cold process method. We only make in small batches using a combination of olive oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, coconut oil and golden rapeseed oil, which is produced at a nearby farm.

We add herbs, botanicals, clays and natural ingredients along with essential oils to create lovely handmade soaps that can be used on the face and body. All our soaps are vegetarian friendly, not tested on animals and all our packaging is recycleable.

Please feel free to browse our products pages to see our skincare range and plants – just click on the link above. We can also supply wedding favour soaps or soaps customised for your shop or business, and sell our herbs at plant fairs throughout the year.

We’re happy to help with any queries. If you’d prefer to have a chat in person then look out for us at Ashby and Market Bosworth Farmers’ Markets every month and at events throughout Leicestershire, Rutland and beyond. Click on the Events tab above to find out where we’ll be.

Look forward to meeting you! Sian and Richard
