Who is behind the brand?
Created by Clare and Darren Cooper, the brand began as an idea whilst travelling around India on a three-month yoga expedition. During their travels, Clare and Darren spent time at an Ayurvedic retreat in Kerala, South Indian state, learning all about the power of plants, natural healing and the effect they can have on our wellbeing.

Following this powerful experience the idea was formed to start a range of natural products, infused with essential oils, with the focus on emotional wellbeing. Made By Coopers Apothecary was officially launched in July 2016.
All products are handcrafted in small batches by Made by Coopers.
Clare and Darren's Philosophy
Believing that what you put on the skin and what you breathe in should be as important as what you put in your body, Clare and Darren carefully select every single ingredient they include in their small batch items and make sure they are natural, clean and locally handmade, this is, according to the lovely couple, the personal touch and special feel they give to their customers.
It is important for the brand that all products and candles are paraffin free; contain no chemical fillers, harsh preservatives, artificial colours or synthetic fragrances. All products are vegan-friendly; plant based and contain only natural and organic ingredients.
How is the Sleepy Mist made?
Being a huge fan of burning frankincense resin to clear away any negativity and relax the mind and body, Clare and Darren felt it was a must to add frankincense in the sleepy mist! They chose to blend with Chamomile and lavender & floral waters to create the ultimate calming mix. Lastly, they use a mild vegetable sourced preservative to keep the mist fresh at all time.
