The Art and Science Behind Everleaf Herbal

Striving For Perfection
The Everleaf team is hugely excited about 2023. We officially launched Everleaf Herbal this year and can’t wait to see what the remainder of the year brings. We are so proud of our first products and delighted to introduce them to you. We currently have three products available, all using natural ingredients only:  

  1. Everleaf Herbal Skin Salve
  2. Natural Joint & Muscle Rub
  3. Everleaf Baby Cleanser

You’ll meet each product individually over the next few months. Prior to delving into the background and passion of each product, however, we’d like to explore our process with you. This will explain why Everleaf Herbal is truly different, and why you can trust Everleaf Herbal with all your family members’ skin needs.


It's All About Family

Everleaf products were initially created for our own family (Read our story). The products we sell, are products we use ourselves.  We want the best for our children, family and friends. For this reason, we only choose ingredients with a specific function following the ethos ‘as little as possible, as much as required’. Nothing is added as a small percentage to make the product label look good. 


Getting Every Detail Right

Formulating natural products is no easy task! All the oils, butters, plant extracts, active ingredients sound so wonderful and have undoubted benefits for the skin. However, simply mixing them together and placing them in a pot does not create a wonderful and safe final product. It is crucial the formulator has an intense knowledge of:

  • each ingredient used,
  • how it will affect the formula in terms of stability and preservation, and
  • how it helps achieve the goal for the final product.

Even small adjustments to the manufacturing process such as heating the oils and butters 10c higher can have a huge impact on the final product. With this in mind, every one of our products has gone through extensive product testing and development. 















Safe Skincare First

Every batch is made in our own laboratory in small runs to ensure the highest standards are maintained. 

The herbal extracts used in our balms are full extracts created ourselves. This means that our extracts are not as concentrated as essential oils. This allows us to use higher quantities if needed whilst retaining the gentleness of our products on your skin.

The final products are sent for advanced stability and safety reports with Oxford Biosciences which offers the most comprehensive and affordable Cosmetic Product Safety Reports available.

Introducing … the Everleaf Family

Our experiences as a family created our mission:   fully natural herbal self-care products that soothe, heal and prevent reoccurring outbreaks.  Everleaf Herbal is family-run and, among custom from our separate high street studio business set up in 2005, we were thrilled that many came to trust in our care and the relief that Everleaf Herbal products bring for themselves and their loved ones. Their encouragement means we now share with the wider world – ideally with you – so that you and those you care for no longer need to suffer discomfort or frustration with a range of medicines that may seem to treat symptoms yet leave underlying issues unresolved. Our Inspiration Raising our three beautiful children is a wonderful experience and, if you have family, you’ll know that can also be very stressful. Our middle child, Fiona, was born with a rare genetic disorder. She needed a tracheostomy at just ten days old.  She went through many more operations, over 20 before she was 8 years old. Wh

Everleaf's Skin Salve

Going Back to Our Roots! Everleaf Herbal Skin Salve is the product which started Everleaf Herbal. It was created from a love for Andrew and Emi’s daughter Fiona; a desire to help with her many skin issues. Our full story is here. This salve is perfect for the whole family, gentle enough to use on babies right through to grandparents too. Every ingredient is 100% natural and is carefully chosen for its nourishing, replenishing and restorative properties.   Our Skin Salve  contains our signature blend of butters and oils; Cocoa and Mango butter, Avocado, Watermelon seed and Broccoli seed oil and mixed with our botanical absolutes of Echinacea, Burdock, Cleavers and Lavender.   We love the special contribution offered by each of our ingredients:  Burdock root is well known for its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Echinacea hydrates the skin, boosting the skin's own natural moisturising ability. At the same time, it protects the skin’s outer layer by helping to lock in

Everleaf's Joint & Muscle Rub

The Origins and Efficacy of Our Healing Blend Do you now the background of the products you use? Have you ever wondered why specific ingredients are used within products? Andrew originally made the Joint & Muscle Rub to help heal a hernia injury. He gifted a bottle to a family friend who was amazed by the results when using it on bruises, aches and pains. Andrew decided to develop it further … it’s now the ‘go to’ cream for his family when anyone has an injury of some kind. It’s the perfect way to help soothe pain and aid recovery. Our Joint & Muscle Rub  uses Everleaf’s signature blend of butters and oils; Cocoa and Mango butter, Avocado, Watermelon seed and Broccoli seed oil. These natural ingredients are mixed with our botanical absolutes of Ginkgo Biloba, Comfrey root and Comfrey leaf.   Each of our ingredients is chosen with care and a specific purpose in mind:  Ginkgo Biloba is known for having analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties. It helps reduce pain instantly whi
