What's New?


These are our latest newest products - soaps, skin care, essential oil blends, candles. Naturally we have to drop some of the old ones, and inevitably there is a sudden run on those! But change is great, a fact of life. And we appreciate feedback of any kind about what you really like or what you don't!

All soaps are hand made from pure vegetable oils - WA virgin olive, Segregated Sustainable palm oil (see below), coconut, macadamia and castor oils. These ingredients produce firm, mild, creamy, moisturizing soaps, with rich lather even in hard water. The different soaps are then crafted with essential oils, extra superfatting oils, herbs, cosmetic grade colours and other ingredients.

As well as making good soap at a physical level, we aim to create soap which cleanses and nourishes the human spirit.

CANDLES (Soybeams)

Why burn paraffin when you can burn these little gems, totally vegetable, beautiful and safe?

Our all vegetable soy wax container candles are safe, non-toxic, environmentally sustainable, and have many other advantages. They burn up to 50 per cent longer than paraffin candles, can contain higher levels of essential oils (we use 4 per cent), and spills clean up easily with hot soapy water. We love making them too.

Essential Oils


Hidden Valley sells high quality pure essential oils in 10ml, 50ml and 100ml sizes in glass bottles with dripolators. However, at the end of April 2020 we are without any more 50ml glass bottles, though we have plenty of 10ml and 100ml sizes.

We also sell precious pure essential oils in 2.5% dilutions in jojoba oil, which is very light and long lasting. Examples are Roman and German chamomile, Rose damascena (Bulgarian), Neroli and Jasmine. This makes these oils affordable.

Hair Care


Our grandmothers used soap to wash their hair, then a vinegar rinse to restore acidity. Shampoos, containing detergents, were only invented after the second world war. While soap is still a wonderful hair cleanser in soft or rain water areas, unfortunately it is not a good option if the water in your area is hard (full of minerals). That "ring around the bath" (the soap precipitating some of these minerals) gets left in your hair.

So our purpose has been to find the mildest possible shampoos using gentle surfactants which dont strip all the natural oils, and reducing any other harmful chemicals as well. The popular decyl polyglucose, while being a "natural" plant derived surfactant, has the unfortunate effect of cleansing rather too well, stripping the hair and leaving it feeling dry and hard.
