Holistic. Simple. Natural.
Hello. I am Sallyanne from Holistic Kitchen. I believe that everyone should be able to experience the power of natural and raw ingredients on the mind, body and soul, without costing the earth. I specialise in essential oil blends, skin care, and pregnancy care products to suit any mood, emotion, and need, all of which are lovingly handcrafted in small batches in the Yorkshire Wolds. Like the name, the product ranges are holistic - meaning they treat the whole person.
I research, test and blend unique combinations that will heal physical ailments, reduce stress levels and balance hormones, while at the same time, rejuvenate your skin and warm the soul. I've put a lot of time and energy into my products to make them affordable, ethical, and kind to the environment. It’s a hard balance to strike but I am committed, and always looking for ways to improve. All our ingredients are ethically sourced, and we’re on a mission to become 100% Organic (so far, we’re at around 65%).
I am are constantly sourcing new suppliers who can provide high-quality ingredients without having to pass on a high cost. I care about packaging too – it’s either reusable or recyclable, and we’ve very nearly phased plastic out of the entire product range. Watch out for our upcoming blog post on our sustainable journey to find out more!
If you’ve got any ideas, suggestions or feedback, we’d love to hear from you @holistickitchen

Hi there. My name is Sallyanne and here is a little bit about me and how Holistic Kitchen came to be….
Inspired by working with essential oils as a holistic massage therapist, I felt drawn to create my own blends, balms, and skincare. I wanted to create more of a natural environment for our children in our home.
I could not get enough of the natural raw ingredients available to us. It amazed me, how their magical natural benefits, beautiful scents had the ability to heal the mind and the body.
It was during my first pregnancy, I started to take more of a holistic approach to what I was using on my skin. From experiencing a bad case eczema on my hand, I started to look at chemicals in household products and skincare, and realised that this was the main cause of my flare-ups.
I threw out all household cleaning products with chemicals and started making my own bathroom and kitchen cleaners. My eczema slowly went and I was amazed. This set me off on my chemical free journey and I found myself obsessed with finding out more information. One book that inspired me was 'Imperfectly Natural Woman: Getting Life Right the Natural Way' by Janey Lee Grace.” Thanks Janey!
Shortly after my son was born he developed small patches of eczema on his skin. I started experimenting by making my own massage balm which worked wonders on him. This saved me from using the steroid cream the doctor wanted to give him.
During my second pregnancy, I began to experiment with more essential oil blends and made products suitable for pregnancy and breastfeeding. Now, those products, such as Magic Foo Mist, Birthing Blend, and Little Pot of Wonder are my best selling products.
Through friends and family requesting blends and balms, Holistic Kitchen started to organically grow. I'd like to thank you all for your support.
