Ugly Apples came about out of necessity for two reasons;

The first, My son Joseph at 4 months old had eczema which quickly spread all over his body causing him to scratch and bleed, It went as quickly as it came with prescribed medication, but returned with a vengeance once I stopped using it. I started looking for alternatives, there were none that did not require my entire food budget, so I looked into the ingredients and started researching the uses and found I could make my own, simply and with no chemicals, preservatives, or colours. I started with nourishing body balm, it worked and I didn’t have to use it every day. My son went long periods of time with clear skin

I found that when he ate processed, sugary foods the eczema returned, so we went on an “All natural “ way of eating, making good healthy meals using raw natural ingredients. The more I looked, the more I realised that our everyday products such as shampoo, bubble baths, soaps, deodorants, perfumes all contained harmful chemicals that cause our skin to react badly resulting in eczema, psoriasis, dry and itchy skin. So I made them all, soaps, bath salts, body scrubs, shampoo soaps, solid perfumes, All 100% natural and nourishing for the skin.

The second reason was that after my husband and I left the Royal Navy in 2007, we had everything we ever wanted until 2008 when the recession hit. My husband was made redundant, our house plummeted into massive negative equity and we lost everything, house, furniture, cars, anything of value was sold so we could keep a rented roof over our heads, eat and pay the bills.

We live a very simple life now, the good life!  We eat naturally from our garden or food sourced locally, we live without too many electronics, we get plenty of fresh air and exercise. We use all my products in our everyday life, our family life is simple & natural and we have seen the benefits for ourselves.

I had a light bulb moment at the Three Oaks Orchard near Henley on Thames, I decided after years of struggle, no money and debts to take a leap of faith and set up my own business doing something I love and believe in.

My products are individually handmade out of 100% natural organic ingredients. The oils, butters and essential oils are cold pressed from certified organic companies. This provides me and you with only the best in oils, to nourish the skin without causing harm or damage.

Each product has been researched and designed to fit into everyday life and can be used by all the family on all skin types, including highly sensitive skin.
