Find out who Luna Therapies Lotions and Potions are and what we love about out little business.
Handcrafted Natural Skin, Haircare and Cosmetic Products.
We are a husband and wife team, that decided during the Covid 19 pandemic, to draw on our combined 20 years of Complementary Therapy and Teaching experience and crafting skills to set up our new baby, Luna Therapies, Lotions and Potions.
Our dream is to create our own range of beautiful, natural and therapeutic products. By using the effective and active high quality and sustainably sourced ingredients, we can create gorgeous skin and hair care products that are gentle on the body and even kinder to the environment.
Covid 19 also inspired Paul to get creative and start making soaps, more out of neccessity than need initially, as during Lockdown there was not a soap bar left on the shelves! So he made his first loaf of soap that we could wash – hands- face!!
Despite this is a brand new skill for Paul, he has definitely got a natural talent for it and is beginning to make some really gorgeous cold processed soaps, bath and shower products which are all Palm Oil Free! He is learning on the job and he is smashing it!!
Our Promise to You
As a small business, we shall always endeavour to produce the best quality products and provide the best care to you, our clients.
We will always try to “do our bit” to make that we shall do our best to care for our planet as best as we can.
We only use natural, sustainable and ethical ingredients and packaging where it is safe to do so.
We ensure that every ingredient that we source and suppliers we use are cruelty-free. The vast majority of our products will be suitable for Vegans, but we do on occasion use a little honey from the two hives that are kept on our family’s smallholding and organic goat milk for our soaps. Vegan “Honey” products will soon be an option.
Gaynor will not use anything less than incredible, high quality and active ingredients in her products. She is very particular…some would say obsessive about it!!
Everyone is unique and whilst Gaynor produces aromatherapy products to suit most people, you may need something with that little extra therapeutic umphf that is created just for you.
With over 20 years of Aromatherapy and Skin and Haircare formulation experience, she will stir her cauldron and work some magic to create something fabulous and uniquely bespoke, just for you.

Only The Best Quality Ingredients
Our ingredients, including essential oils, body oils, butters, clays, colourants, herbs and spices and soap ingredients are completely natural, nature-identical, plant-based (except local organic Goat’s Milk and Honey) and are of the highest food and cosmetic grade
We only use ethically and responsibly sourced and cruelty-free ingredients, supporting other small, local businesses where we can.
In order to keep you, the client, safe, I do have to use emulsifiers and preservatives for water-based products such as moisturisers, serums, hydrolats, creams and lotions to ensure that they are safe and stable for you to use. In line with our ethics to only use products that are safe and beneficial, the emulsifiers and preservatives used, are totally safe and essential for product quality and to prevent bacteria and mould,
Where possible, we try and use recycled packaging that can go on to be re-used, composted or be put into your recycling bins.
We encourage our clients, family and friends to donate their unwanted packaging to us so that we can re-use it to send out your parcels and save it to going into landfill.
Time to put a face to the name, but don’t let this part scare you away, we are a lot more knowledable that we look!
