Bespoke Therapies, Botanical Skincare
Thank you for visiting my website. You may be seeking a natural or vegan facial treatment, shopping for natural skincare or looking for inspiration in the Blog. I hope you’ll find something to spark your interest. Here's the OV naturals story, in a nutshell.

I’ve been running OV naturals since 2006, starting out as an aromatherapist. Clients visited my home clinic (Orchard View) & I began observing the profound effects of facial massage, not only on physical appearance but also on mental wellbeing & overall relaxation. Coupled with the beautifying & mood-boosting properties of essential oils, this was a winning formula for a natural, holistic approach to beauty, which is reflected in the treatments I offer today. In 2011, prompted by therapy clients, I launched a range of skincare products including Vital “Triple Rose” Facial Oil, dubbed a “beauty industry favourite” from the outset.
