Owners, Catriona Canning and Diana MacPhee grew up in Glendale on the Isle of Skye, surrounded by the native plants and herbs that inspired them to start their soap business.
Long childhood days were spent making perfumes out of wild rose petals and mixtures from meadowsweet, wild thyme, heather and the obligatory mud! Since then, our recipes have been refined but we still make use of the abundance of natural ingredients surrounding us.
Island Botanics was established in 2003 and started off as a small venture with a grand vision. Catriona had a dream of one day expanding her business idea to make use of the native herbs and plants surrounding her.
To help realise this plan, her sister Diana joined the team. Together they aim to develop their product range whilst staying true to their ethos.
