self-care (noun) /,self'ker/

the practice of taking action to preserve or improve one's own physical or mental health.

The Lunar Self-Care Co. journey began back in 2018, then known as Lunar Melts, by a mother-and-daughter team specialising in candles and wax melts. Since then, we have grown substantially, receiving accolades from the Scotland Prestige Awards and the Perfect Gift Awards. Now in 2024, we have evolved into specialising in handmade self-care items, with products such as whipped soap, sugar scrubs, room and linen mists, and scrunchies.

All of our products are handmade from scratch (including their labels) using self-drafted formulations and patterns and we make an effort to sustainably source all of our ingredients and fabrics. All of our ingredients are palm and sulphate-free and vegan friendly. Our jars and bottles are all made using prevented ocean plastics (POP). Prevented ocean plastics are recycled from old plastic packaging which have been collected from rivers and lakes around the world before they enter the ocean.

We chose to specialise in self-care products in particular as research shows that partaking in self-care activities regularly can improve both your physical and mental health. Studies have shown that regular self-care can lower stress which in turn has physical side effects such as lowering blood pressure and boosting your immune system.

Our main aim for the Lunar Self-Care Co. is to promote the practice of self-care through our products and to increase accessibility to these products for those who may have allergies or skin concerns. We also wanted to provide the peace of mind that as each product is completely handmade by us, we know exactly what ingredients are inside the product and can confidently answer questions and advise accordingly.
