When it comes to having 2 minutes peace - which doesn't happen that often, I love nothing more than having a nice relaxing bath with bubbles and scented soaps galore. It's not often that I treat myself and so I do like to indulge in a little light therapy at The Yorkshire Soap Company to stock up on bath treats.
Founded in 2004, The Yorkshire Soap Company started it's life in a small kitchen at home, with a handful of soapy ingredients, some cake moulds and baking cases, and this was all it took to start up one of my favourite soap companies.
Since then, they've gone on to develop a huge range of delectable ‘patisserie style’ soaps, bath time indulgences and even full-sized soap wedding cakes! They even make bath bombs, salts, truffles and foams, body and hair care products.
There are so many reasons to love The Yorkshire Soap Companies products and it's not just down to their amazing customer service:
- All products are made using natural ingredients
- No animal testing – not now, not ever
- All soaps and bath luxuries are handmade
- All products are suitable for vegetarians
Not only that but every item is wrapped to perfection, in their signature design.
With Mother's Day just around the corner, The Yorkshire Soap Company have created their own set of gifts, perfect for the woman in your life. Whether she's your mum, grandparent, or the mother of your children, these products are sure to delight on Mothering Sunday!
If you want to try out some of their scents, then the Classic Collection Artisan Soap Slice gift box is perfect. In a beautifully designed box, this set includes three soaps:
Yorkshire Rose Artisan Soap Slice
Lavender Flower Artisan Soap Slice
Seville Orange Artisan Soap Slice
Made from essential oil based fragrances and natural botanicals, this collection was the first set that The Yorkshire Soap Company made and is by far my favourite. The Rosebud slice is topped with roses, the orange bar includes real orange slices, and a lavender bar topped with lavender flowers.
From floral topped to novelty, the M.U.M. Novelty Soap Bar gift box is truly stunning. Presented in their beautiful large handbag gift box, complete with ribbon and gift tag, this set features 3 very large soaps which create the word 'mum'.
With the charm and beauty of a Yorkshire Lass (ahem!), these natural novelty soaps will leave skin feeling smooth and soft. Handmade with vegetable glycerine, moisturising oils and natural extracts, each lather will leave your body smelling floral and uplifted.
If you're looking for a mega treat, then the Mother's Day Luxury gift hamper includes a little bit of everything to really treat the lady on that special day.
This item is packaged in a beautiful small wicker hamper with all the products lovingly packaged inside with their signature pink and brown shredded packing paper to keep them safe and sound. All sealed with the branded ‘The Yorkshire Soap Co’ brown ribbon tied in a bow with gift tag on the handle.
Inside this beautiful hamper, you will find:
No4 - Relaxing Bath Foam
Happy Mother's Day Soap Cupcake
'Mum' Novelty Soap Slice
'Real Rose Bud' Bath Truffle Gift Box (6 truffles)
I think this is a truly beautiful collection of The Yorkshire soap Companies products and gives you a real taster of what's available. The whole hamper has floral scents coming off it, pulling me in with those 'come and bathe in me' eyes.
The adorable bath truffles are made using cocoa butter and sweet almond oil for natural skin nourishment, designed to melt into your bath water and caress your skin with a luxurious, moisturising cuddle.
As you gently open the packaging of the soap cupcake, you get a real sense of decadence. The Yorkshire Rose scent makes it good enough to eat (but please don't!). Packed full of moisturising oils and natural extracts, this handmade blend will leave sensitive skin feeling polished and perfect.
Sometimes, these are just too pretty to use though and so I have mine in proud of place in my bedroom so it's fragrance can fill the room with beautiful Yorkshire roses.
The Yorkshire Soap Company have a huge range of soapy goodies available in a whole host of fragrances, now I just need for my husband to get the hint and stock up my collection for me!
