Lola’s Apothecary began as these dreamy stories do, with a whimsical girl and a rose, in a fabulous city of bright lights and large umbrellas, the city of London.
Lola adores roses, fresh air and random acts of kindness. Dancing through the old city, she masqueraded as a creative professional, while mostly lingering at perfumeries and tea shops. In her tiny kitchen, alongside exotic spices and sweet delights, she would conjure up homemade potions based on age old beauty wisdom to care for her sensitive skin. After gifting a friend at a birthday party, her fragrant things became sought after via word of mouth. Lola was inspired to create a range of beauty wonders that marries effective natural skincare with the perfumed glamour that makes conventional, often chemically laden cosmetics so appealing.
Lola was soon joined by Dominic, an intrepid soul who shares Lola’s vision of beauty and grace. In the winter of 2013, they embarked on an adventure to find a new home beyond the city walls. Together they run Lola’s Apothecary on a picturesque cattle farm in Devon, in between cooking, tending to the vegetable garden and lashings of clotted cream.
At the heart of Lola’s Apothecary is a belief in wellness and a holistic approach to life. Lola and Dominic wish that their lovingly handmade products would not only bless one with gorgeous skin, but also become a welcome part of one’s self care ritual, to provide a momentary retreat from the vivid dance of life.
