Owl & Apothecary Gift Box
Every so often a product comes along that you wish you had thought of. The Owl and the Apothecary (owlapothecary.com) handcrafted luxury gift box is that very thing. The brainchild of former East Londoner now Dorset dweller, Katy Theakston, the gift boxes have been created with expertise, consideration and above all, love. Included in the hampers are natural bath oils, body butters and candles. So far so usual. But each product has a ritual attached to create and guide a more meaningful experience; from a luxurious bathing ritual to dancing wildly under the stars. There are four in the range (from £65), all inspired by the British countryside and the night sky with a magical dose of paganism. The Intrepid Fox is for those seeking change and adventure. The Beautiful Wild Rabbit for those embarking on motherhood. The Thoughtful Night Sky for those seeking truth and freedom. The Gentle White Hart for those in need of peace and clemency. It was important to Katy that she works with ‘established products and bespoke crafters that share the same philosophy – beautiful products made with love and care’. The boxes exactly reflect this. Each feature products from the Natural Health Beauty award winner Mel Millis, London’s cool brand Skin & Tonic and Somerset based Mary Temperley’s Make Skincare. There are own brand aromatic candles, healing stones, masks and Happening Cards… See, not your standard hamper.
Katy was keen to find a way to support herself in her new country surroundings and wanted ‘to build a business with creativity and kindness at its very heart.’ Her ambition to create something that would inspire women to make positive changes in their lives seems to be well on its way to being realised.Read our interview with Katy Theakston here www.owlapothecary.com
