What our customers say

“From the pictures on the wall, to the materials used, the incredible scents of the products and the meticulous treatments it is almost the antithesis of the type of treatment where excess, over indulgence and chemical products are the tools of the trade. Lucy's knowledge of creating products as well as other organic products to use, along with how best to look after yourself and your skin seems limitless. A truly deep and wonderful way to spend an hour or so if you can - for your mental health just as much as your skin :-)”  
Nicola Bradshaw, Somerset

“The fact that you champion local causes and other causes ... Even your toilet paper is ethical . Such careful consideration about everything! In a world of green washing this is really admirable.”  
Jane, Somerset

Background: I love to give you bespoke treatments for the face, head & shoulders which are natural, cruelty-free & plant-based. I often work intuitively, as much for your mental wellbeing & relaxation as for your skin. The beauty of this approach is that you look good & feel good after a treatment with me.  Please visit the Treatments page to discover more.

A holistic therapist & aromatherapist since 2006, I started out giving body massage, making bespoke blends of using essential oils to treat different physiological & psychological conditions. Over the years this grew into a passion for natural skincare. I became aware of the huge impact that touch for the face & head could have & this then became my passion.

What's in a Name?

Orchard View naturals

When I started treating clients with aromatherapy back in 2006, I'd just moved to Somerset & my first home was called "Orchard View". Once upon a time, there had been apple orchards in the fields outside. Somerset has a long history of apple growing & I love that link with nature & the land. It seemed perfect to incorporate the name into the business, reflecting its provenance. And so "Orchard View naturals" was born, shortened to "OV".
