Swallows & Artisans

Swallows & Artisans


We’re excited to host Siobhan from The Little Lakeland Soap Company at Swallows & Artisans. Siobhan combines 100% pure essential oils and quality natural ingredients into beautifully luxurious soaps, candles, bath salts, lip balms and more.
In this one day workshop you will learn about the different scent blends, the properties of each oil and why they were chosen. First watch a demonstration and then, with help and guidance from Siobhan, you will create your own perfect soy wax candle and handcrafted soap bar for you to take home and enjoy. Each product aims to relieve tension, stress and lift spirits all whilst smelling amazing!

Your soap will contain 100% pure essential oils and will be SLS and SLES free, made using vegetable based ingredients which are vegan friendly and perfect for sensitive skin. The candles are made using natural soy bean wax and 100% pure essential oils. They have a 30-40 hour burn time and come in a 120g glass jar with aluminium lid.

The workshop will take place in our purpose built creative space overlooking Coniston Water and the Old Man of Coniston. We will provide a healthy lunch along with all refreshments and sweet treats. All tools and materials are supplied for the duration of the workshop. Please bring an apron or wear casual clothes.

More about Siobhan

After training as a beauty therapist and gaining further qualifications in aromatherapy Siobhan worked for over 12 years in the industry. In 2014 Siobhan was diagnosed with fibromyalgia (a chronic pain condition) and later with ME, both of which have no cure. While she had seen the benefits aromatherapy had done for her clients over the years, she now began to look at ways she could treat herself with this natural remedy and in 2016 The Little Lakeland Soap Company was born. She hopes that her products will help other people who have experienced conditions like hers, and can in fact be used for many of life’s niggles as well.
