Botanical Notes is inspired by nature and the power of scent.

Scent is immediate, halting and comforting. Like music, the notes of a scent, evoke memories, take us back to particular places and speak to our emotions.

Through our shop we aim to bring you natural products that we hope will speak to your emotions and bring back some lovely memories.

Most of our natural products are vegan and handmade in small batches in the UK. None are tested on animals.

Through the therapy room, our aim is to bring you the opportunity to take some time out for some well-deserved self-care. We believe that caring for yourself is not self-indulgent, it’s necessary.

Ellie Whitehall

Natural Skincare Coach and Founder

I am registered with IFPA (International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists) and offer aromatherapy and holistic massages, and natural organic facials.

I have a keen interest in wellness, which stems from my background in nursing, all too often I have seen people saying ‘No’ to themselves for the sake of others.

Ellie Whitehall

I am passionate about using natural products with beautiful, quality ingredients which are free from nasties.

Facials are my favourite treatment because they have so many benefits. Not only are they brilliant for making your skin look great, but they’re also incredibly relaxing and great for relieving stress. I approach my treatments with a holistic outlook, and take into account the whole picture to help you achieve a natural, healthy glow and a balanced, calm lifestyle.

Kate Yabsley


Kate has had an interest in holistic therapies for many years and after maternity leave, decided to join Neal’s Yard Remedies as an Independent Consultant. This led her to meet many self-employed therapists and realised she could do that too.

Having recently qualified with a VTCT Level 3 certification in Reflexology and Kate is very excited to start doing something that she loves. Reflexology is a powerful medium to balance & relax us in a busy and demanding world. It is so much more than a foot massage!
