INSPIRATION

Londe is an old English word for ‘land’ and all of our ingredients are British grown. I was inspired by landscapes and literature, particularly rural Somerset (where my husband grew up) and Windsor Great Park, which we are lucky to have so close to home. I was an English Literature student at university so there’s poetry and prose woven throughout Londe’s story; I have a weakness for the Romantic poets and Virginia Woolf.

BEST BEAUTY ADVICE

‘Shoulders back, chin up!’ Brings a boost of confidence if I’m feeling tired or shy.

DESERT ISLAND PRODUCT

A lovely botanical oil of course, but knowing me I’d probably start foraging for new ingredients on the island!

WHAT’S NEXT FOR YOUR BRAND?

We’re about to launch a beautiful chamomile and lavender Evening Oil, and there’s a perfume oil, floral facial mists and herbal bath powders in the works. It’s going to be a busy year.

  1. Get waterwise, including updated cisterns and showerheads.
  2. Keep a recycling bin in the bathroom.
  3. And obviously, cut out single-use and unsustainable products…the planet’s running out of time and there’s no excuse with so many great alternatives around.
