Bramble & Blossom is the culmination of a lifelong dream for founder and owner Karen Anderson. Having been ‘completely obsessed’ with lotions and potions since childhood – the first product Karen ever made was a sugar scrub with honey and oats when she was just 14 – she has now turned her love of creating new natural beauty products into a successful career.
Karen’s idea of launching a sustainable beauty and homewares business first came about after completing massage therapy and aromatherapy courses, and becoming a self-proclaimed ‘nerd’ about the myriad beneficial effects of essential oils.
“If a friend or relative has a skin complaint or a health-related problem, the first thing I do is see what essential oils can be used to help,” Karen says. “Used correctly, they can have amazingly positive health benefits and also boost wellbeing. In fact my encyclopaedia of essential oils is my own personal go-to bath book!
“I have very sensitive skin myself and always stick to organic and natural products, as well as keeping what I use simple and minimal. I’m not a fan of fussy skincare routines and this is reflected in our Bramble & Blossom products.”
Mum-of-two Karen says having children has made her even more responsible with her beauty choices and concern for the environment,and this drive to produce ethically sourced, carefully packaged products made with the most natural and highest quality ingredients available, has all been channelled into Bramble & Blossom’s beautiful and unique range, made right here in England.
