After a long day in the office, designer Jacqui Sheard would unwind by making bars of carefully crafted organic handmade soap. It was a passion that soon became a profession when she found a historic little shop in Lacock and started Quintessentially English. Behind our products is an age-old philosophy: When you touch a flower you disturb a star. It s an idea that goes right back to medieval times when herbalists combined the sciences of medicine and astronomy and flowers, linked to the stars, were used for their healing properties. Like these early sages, we believe there s a connection, between earth and air, fire and water an energy that flows through everything: a quintessence. Everything our team make at Quintessentially English is as natural as we can make it, we hand decorate the soaps and individually pack everything ourselves. We are based in the beautiful and historic National Trust village of Lacock, home of Lacock Abbey and Fox Talbot Museum of photography.
