Welcome to Penny Frances Apothecary.
Sarah has carefully designed her products to share with you her many passions in life. She has a profound romanticism for each and every ingredient she carefully selects. Her products transport you; the feeling of salty skin with delicate wafts of coconut and fresh limes, enticing a dance between the olfactory and the tangible. Sun on skin, fires on beaches, dancing on the sand, the smell of the ocean, salty hair, sleeping under the stars on a balmy, summer's night, the sound of crickets, the scent of fresh lemons, orange blossoms, frangipani, jasmine & vanilla orchards in the air, coconut forests. True Love. Real Magic. Elixirs of the earth.
Whilst growing up in Africa, Australia & Scotland, her Mother hugely influenced her on the foundations of skincare, finding the beauty within, what you put into your body, the importance of ones perspective on life & the simplistic benefits of fresh air, drinking gallons of water, plenty of olive oil, good food, salty ocean air and sunshine, from here her passions were ignited.
Sarah's love for flavours and aromas further developed, and so began her extensive culinary training in Edinburgh & Sydney, Australia, which eventually took her all over the world. From her expansive travels all over Europe, to far off islands, the Indian Ocean, the Caribbean, South East Asia and everywhere in between. During these travels, Sarah became enraptured and bewitched by the allure of scent and the exotic potency of plants.
All items made by Penny Frances Apothecary are comprised of plant-based, organic (where stated), wild-crafted ingredients, including essential oils quality controlled and tested by certified aromatherapists and are free of petroleum, parabens, synthetic fragrances and chemical residues and NEVER TESTED ON ANIMALS. Sarah creates her own formulas, all her beautiful products are hand blended and poured micro batches to ensure freshness and ultra potency.
All our products are contained in exquisite Miron violet glass, which works like a natural filter that only lets in the sunlight that protects and improves the quality of our potent botanical skincare.
