Ethical Small Business in South Somerset, UK A Warm Welcome to Orchard View naturals from Lucy Stevens MFHT (pictured in Provence 2019)

Bespoke Therapies, Botanical Skincare
Thank you for visiting my website. You may be shopping for natural skincare, seeking a therapeutic treatment or just looking for inspiration. I hope you’ll find something to spark your interest. Here is my story, in a nutshell.

I’ve been running OV naturals since moving to Somerset in 2007, after making some lifestyle changes & qualifying as an Aromatherapist. Clients visited my home clinic & I began observing the profound effects of facial massage. Coupled with the beautifying & mood-boosting properties of essential oils, this was a winning formula for a natural, holistic approach to beauty, which became central to the therapies menu you see today. When clients began asking for beauty products to take home, I launched “Orchard View naturals” the brand. Vital “Triple Rose” Facial Oil, our hero product, was dubbed a “beauty industry favourite” from the outset & you’ll find it here in the online shop, along with other skincare & fragrance goodies.

Enjoy your visit & please get in touch if you would like to know more. Rest assured, you’re in good hands.
