After 28 years of cooking in Australia and Europe, former chef Anne Hulls turned her interest in botanicals and essential oils into more than a just a hobby.
The natural room sprays she started making for friends and family eight years ago has since grown into The Essentials Lab - a range of 22 pure botanical products for every home and every body, including body oils, washes, room fragrances, body spritzes, serums and oil perfumes.
With the aim of developing natural, luxurious products for everyone, using minimal and sustainable packaging, everything at the Essentials Lab is done by Anne, by hand; from sourcing raw materials, blending, and making , packaging and marketing. Totally a one woman show.
Like all good food experiences, The Essentials Lab products allow beautiful ingredients to speak for themselves. Enhanced by Anne's interest (okay, obsession) in rare oils and attars and resins, there's no messing around, no fake ingredient lists, no claims and absolutely no synthetic fragrances. For her, its all about creating beautiful smelling products for every day use with the best ingredients possible. Just nature at its best.
