Bath House is a fragrance and natural skincare brand founded in 1997 by a creative team of artists and designers who live and work in the Lake District.
Passionate about art, design and poetry, we seek inspiration in the beauty of nature and from our personal experiences and emotions. We bring this to life in the form of fragrances and skincare infused with evocative aromas and pure ingredients. Our recipe is a blend of passion, nature, artistic creativity and artisan production.
Bath House began as an artistic collaboration, created from humble beginnings. The kitchen cooker was our lab, the table our design studio. We experimented with the world of fragrance and explored ways in which to harness the gentle healing power of natural ingredients. We were keen to learn from experts and began working with a small number of fragrance creators and skincare formulators who helped us with their specialist knowledge. Everything we made was packaged with care and meticulous attention to detail, teaching ourselves as we went along, always focusing on high standards.
We sealed the scent and beauty of nature into artisan glass bottles, designed with a sculptor’s understanding of form and a textile artist’s eye for colour and pattern. The know-how we gained at art school was meticulously applied to every stage of the process, from the initial conception to the individual hand-wrapping of the finished product.
Listening carefully to our customer’s needs, orders were soon plentiful, requiring new premises to keep up with demand. We converted a former grain store in Sedbergh into purpose built making rooms and design offices. In 2003, we opened the first of our fragrance and skincare boutiques in the delightful rural town of Kirkby Lonsdale. Although this represented a leap into the unknown, our qualms were appeased, thanks to the valued support of our local customers and visitors to the area who soon became Bath House aficionados.
Our boutiques are a tailored showcase for our products, a sensorial world of fragrance and skincare, where we focus on customer service and are delighted to be able to offer a unique personalised shopping experience matching the quality of our products.
As a brand, the Bath House continues to grow, with seven shops in the north of England. For those who join us on our journey, our ethos will always be about artistic creativity, artisan methods of production and sharing a love of natural beauty.
