A natural skincare and home fragrance range - with a wellbeing twist

Walk Mill Botanics was launched in 2014 as a home-based business by our founder, Vicki, at her cottage in Walk Mill – a tiny village on the Staffordshire/Shropshire border in the heart of the English countryside.

Vicki was driven to combine her love of gardening with her beliefs in natural, ethically produced bath and beauty products, and her passion for personal wellbeing, having worked as an executive coach for many years. She started making soaps and learning how to formulate, foraging ingredients such as lavender, marigold, rose and geranium from her garden and surrounding lanes.

Since then, Walk Mill Botanics products have been featured in Landscape, Psychologies, Country Living, Prima Baby, Green Parent, Staffordshire Life, The Guardian and the Telegraph, including winning a Green Parent Beauty Award in 2016. 

Walk Mill Botanics offers a wellbeing range of soaps, hand creams, Himalayan bath salts and room sprays in three series – unwind, relax and refresh.

Our gardener’s hand care range was created due to our founder’s experience as a keen gardener and a determination that being a gardener doesn’t have to mean ‘green fingers.’

Vicki worked with a team of more than 20 professional gardeners to ensure her natural restorative hand scrub removes stubborn dirt, whilst her TLC salve contains anti-fungal, anti -septic essential oils. She completed the range with a sage, nettle and comfrey soap and an everyday moisturiser that soaks in easily.

Vicki retired in 2018 and I’m delighted that she has trusted her ‘baby’ to me to see through her vision.

Walk Mill Botanics products have been a staple item in our house since I fell in love with them when I first worked with Vicki as a marketing consultant back in 2014.

I’m a busy mum of two who shares Vicki’s passion and belief that everyone deserves some ‘me time’ – breathing in the beautiful aromas of nurturing essential oils while soaking in the bath or sinking on to your bed after a long day! (Gin/wine and a book are optional extras!)

Ethical and environmentally focused

All our shea butter is from communities in Ghana where women harvest shea nuts to produce butter. They are paid a fair wage and the profits are invested into education and community development programmes. It is then added into my products by an ethical business that employs people from disadvantaged communities in Scotland. 

To look after our environment, all our containers are made from recycled materials and our seeded paper is made from recycled jeans and impregnated with flower seeds.


To look after your skin, each Walk Mill Botanics product is formulated with plant based ingredients and botanicals and contains no SLS or Parabens.

We are kind to animals and would never test our products on them. All our soaps, room sprays, bath salts, hand creams, and gardener’s scrub are all suitable for vegans.

The TLC salve in the gardener’s skincare range is not suitable for vegans,
as it contains beeswax.
