The Orange Tree was a thriving shop in the days of the ironstone mines and served the community well for many years – in fact from 1890′s to the 1980′s.!
Our own little shop is a far cry from this general store but we hope that you might find something to tempt you ! We offer a range of products to help you continue your relaxation when you are at home.
We have a line of unique hand-made aromatherapy products including cleansers, creams, masks and scrubs for all skin types. They are all made here with love and attention by our qualified aromatherapist Leanne. They include essential oils such as geranium, lavender, tea tree and frankincense. They don’t contain any alcohol, lanolin or perfume and are not tested on animals.
We also sell a range of scented candles, yoga mats and cushions, as well as a beautiful range of pots and mugs made by Dave from Thorpe End Pottery who runs pottery classes here.
