The Dandy Lions Apothecary was set up by Jonathan and Paul in 2013, initially we were working from our home in Norfolk, England. We were lucky enough to move to Spain in 2017 and now produce all of our products from our Cortijo in the Almanzora valley.
We use a traditional cold process method that turns oils and butters into exquisite soaps and shampoo bars. Our soaps and shampoos are 100% natural, fragranced only with essential oils. We do not use palm oil in any of our products and strive to reduce the use of plastics in our packaging. We have taken our of love of fragrance and fragrance blending further and introduced our own range of candles.
As part of our move to Spain we took part in the Channel 4's TV programme a New Life in the Sun. This was an exciting, if daunting experience and we hope that you might enjoy watching us settle into our new surroundings.
We have a deep love of dogs, having five of our own and we are supporters and volunteer dog walkers for a local resuce centre, Maz's Canine Rescue. Our work with this charity has recently been included on New Life in the Sun - Where are they Now?
