About Us

From Little Acorns... Oakwood Aromatics Grew

Oakwood Aromatics is Kate and Phil Moores and we make gorgeous, all-natural soap and skincare, by hand, in the heart of Yorkshire. We make 100% vegetarian products that put a smile on people's faces!

We love the fact that Oakwood Aromatics is a small (just the two of us) local business, focused on creating good, natural products in recyclable/reusable packaging, that don't cost the earth. 

We deliberately choose to give our products quirky names and a pop of colour. Our products are all suitable for vegetarians and many are vegan (look for the VF symbol). Many (but not all) our ingredients are organic and we love to use local ingredients, such as Wharfe Valley Rapeseed Oil. Our honey and beeswax are supplied by Janice Fulton of the Harrogate & Ripon Beekeepers Association. We use Black Sheep Beer in our Stella shampoo bars too!


We live and work in the very beautiful village of West Tanfield. The village has become increasingly popular with cyclists since the Grand Depart of the Tour de France came through in 2014 (complete with a triple-royal visit). Since then we have thrown up decorations, hot air balloons and impromptu bars and cheered like crazy when the Tour de Yorkshire races came through! (Any excuse for a party!) 

Random facts. Phil plays bass guitar in salsa band Mambo con Rumbo and Kate aspires to being an artist!
