#BehindtheBrand…Karis

Karis is always busy in the workshop, keeping our shelves full of your favourite cold pressed oils from around the world. She is also in charge of carefully wrapping up all the orders we receive from our lovely customers and getting them ready for the postman. In her spare time Karis loves being outdoors with her camera taking fantastic photos, or rustling up the most amazing raw chocolates in the kitchen. She also makes the best vegan traybakes ever!

Do you have a favourite oil? There are lots of oils to choose from, but I’d have to pick coconut oil for its diversity and the fact that it smells like a tropical island. I use it as a face and body moisturiser, for oil pulling and of course, you can use it in cooking and baking too!

What do you like doing in your spare time? I love spending time outside, which usually involves climbing mountains, walking in the woods, swimming in the sea, cycling and planting stuff to eat in the garden! I also enjoy photography so I can very often be found with a camera in my hand!

Do you have a beauty secret you can share? I try and keep my hair in good condition, so I have a special hair oil blend that I make up. It contains one part argan oil, one part castor oil and essential oils of rosemary, ylang ylang and lemon, or any other oils that I like the smell of on that particular day!! I smooth this through my hair, focusing especially on the ends, and leave it on overnight for best results, washing it all off in the morning. These lovely oils help to keep your hair looking healthy!

What’s your favourite flower? I’ve got lots of favourite flowers, but if I had to pick one it would be the rose. They look beautiful and they smell gorgeous! We have quite a few planted around our workshop so in the summer I love to smell the fragrant blooms on the way to work.
