Merrywood | Blackthorpe Barn

MEET Linda Hamblen

At Merrywood they hand make a range of soaps, candles, botanicals, scents, and pretty things in the Garden of England from a blend of natural, homegrown and wild-harvested plant ingredients. Their range is diverse, unique and sometimes seasonal. They’ve been handcrafting our soaps for over 25 years now!

The techniques have remained the same though, working to a traditional recipe and using a blend of up to eight different plant oils infused with herbs, spices and flower petals. They don’t use palm oil, keep plastic to a minimum and keep their packaging simple, natural and recyclable. They create something that will appeal to everyone with nearly thirty different scents to choose from, including their new shampoo bars.
