Modern life has put us out of touch with nature. Before the advance of chemicals, herbs were used for centuries in almost every part of life.
Herbs to heal, to nourish, to make clothes, to cleanse, to relax, to romance, to celebrate occasions and remember loved ones.
This precious knowledge is being lost.
Discovering the magic of herbs and what they can do for us is fascinating and could even change your life – read our story below!
We’ve made it our mission at Cooks Lane Herbs to share this precious knowledge, create natural nourishing products, and show you how you can too. From done-for-you pretty but practical printables so you can design your own herb garden to sharing natural beauty recipes and herb growing tips, we can help.
Your skin will thank you once you’ve tried the combination of herbs with natural oils and butters. Naturally nourishing – (no nasties), beautiful to look at, with evocative scents to lift your mood.
I was always keen on gardening, but it was when my health broke down that I really began to study herbs seriously. My doctor had signed me off work for three months and I had felt awful, tearful and anxiety-ridden, depressed. It was a pretty bleak time.
I noticed that the more time I was spending outside growing and tending to the plants the better I felt. I was fascinated by herbs and what they could do, and began reading and researching plants and essential oils. I made herbs and nature therapy part of my recovery.
Even weeding – yes really! – helped because it calmed my brain down, and I got better at just focusing on one thing at a time, as did planning and growing our herb garden.
My obsession with herbs and natural products began.
Our friends and family would always comment on how much they loved our natural soaps when they visited, so we decided to take some to the farmers markets and craft fairs to see if people would buy them.
Turns out lots of people loved our products.
And not just the way they looked and made their skin feel, or the fabulous scents that filled the room, but people were intrigued by the stories behind the herbs. The centuries worth of healing properties and their many magical uses
So we began sharing the knowledge and offering beauty recipes and remedies too
Today we’ve captured this precious knowledge, applied our unique recipes, and are making Herbs accessible to everyone who wants to help protect and live a more natural life
We called the business Cooks Lane Herbs because it was the lane were walked down where we’d forage for herbs, fruits and wildflowers.
Everything we do is 100% natural.
