Natural health & beauty
As well as our fabulous farmers and food producers, the fruits of the land, from the rich moorland to the lush green dales, are also used as ingredients by a small but growing number of artisan makers of natural skincare products. Seek their products out for a special memento of your visit to the North York Moors.
A range of all natural, pure, vegetable based, skincare products; handmade using local North York Moors botanical ingredients, including herbs and flowers. Products include pure and natural botanical soaps, moisturising face creams, hand cream, lip balms with local beeswax. Alice is already selling a little bit of the North York Moors to an organic chain of shops in London but you can find them stocked locally too at Danby Health Shop, one of the best stocked health shops around, and other outlets.
Based in Moorsholm, on the edge of the National Park, Judith makes handmade vegetarian skin and hair care products using natural ingredients, organic where possible. Buy them exclusively online or find them at a number of shows around Northern England.
A range of handmade skincare products made with pure plant ingredients sourced from North Yorkshire. Available to purchase online and from their Whitby shop.
100% Pure Lavender Essential Oil derived from the only wood-fired steam distillery in the country is used to produce a bespoke range of lavender hair, bath and other skincare products, beautifully packaged and sold in their gift shop, by mail order and online.
A second lavender farm in the area also produces lavender essential oil and soap, available to purchase from their gift shop.
And did you know that some of the beer crafted by The Great Yorkshire Brewery goes into the stout shampoo made by a certain high street chain of fresh handmade cosmetics? It strengthens and adds shine to hair apparently or you may prefer to stick with drinking their real ale...
If you're looking for a chance to de-stress and slow down, our tranquil surroundings make the North York Moors a hot spot for retreats and rejuvenating breaks good for your mind, body and soul too.
