I’m Sarah of Duchy Designs Home Spa. I hand make Organic, vegan friendly, cruelty free and eco friendly home spa beauty & bathing products & aromatherapy Soy Wax Candles.
I use only real aromatherapy oils and precious stones in our products which are proven to benefit your body, mind & soul.
I wanted to bring the spa to ones home whilst also introducing people to the concept of natural beauty products with out all the additives and water that so many big companies bulk their products with.
Whilst remaining a plastic free company we encourage people to reuse jars or repurpose them into something useful. We are passionate about doing our bit for our beautiful planet.
Previously a photographer and part time model, I came to start my business after the sad passing of my Mum. My mum suffered terribly with fibromyalgia and arthritis and so I wanted to create something in her memory, to help others who suffer in pain on a daily basis, like she did bless her.
Living with Bipolar depression 2 disorder I came to find the wonderful power of aromatherapy oils to also balance ones mental health.Setting up my business was hard, and has cost A LOT of money. My best advice to anyone wishing to start a business is save, because you need to spend money to make money, and you will spend a small fortune building it.
Research and research everything, then learn and learn everything you need to know surrounding your business. I signed up to an online pytotherapy Course.
There are certain guidelines in place that some businesses most follow, so you must check that you tick all of these boxes and comply before you begin.
You need to dedicate most of your time to your business, time is the most valuable thing you have when you run a business.
I’m lucky enough to be able to work from home- Duchy Designs Home Spa Studio is on the ground floor of my home, so I can nip down and do some work whenever I get the chance to.
During this pandemic I am home schooling my twin boys so Duchy Designs Home Spa has to fit around that. It’s tough sometimes because I just don’t get the time, so I have to work into the evenings or on the weekends.
Your business becomes your baby so you’ll nurture, develop and grow it and when you start to see it grow, it really is so rewarding, especially when you get those magical orders ping into your email box.
Love & light,
