Hi, my name is Gill, and I am the face behind Mountain Garden Botanics.
We are a small family run firm based on a mountain in North Wales.
I started my journey as a keen gardener. Growing all my fruit, herbs, vegetables, and flowers from seed. I had taken an interest in growing vegetables originally so that I could have organic produce for my pets. Spring is one of my favourite times in the garden as I can wonder around with my basket and forage. Whilst foraging for all these amazing ingredients in my garden it gave me the inspiration to explore the other benefits of these natural botanicals that mother nature has given us.
I started with a shampoo bar, which is still my favourite today, as it is scented with lavender and lemongrass and has neem oil to repel some of the biting insects that I have on the mountain. After an initial detox period, the shampoos’ natural ingredients had an amazing impact on my hair. My hair grew faster, became thicker, bouncier, and even lighter. This success motivated me to not only develop other recipes, each with their own natural benefits, but just as important for me, a range suitable for pets.
