My story.

Hi, I'm Annie and here is my Elm Tree Botanicals journey so far.

In 2018 I spent a fascinating day with my daughter learning about the craft of candle making. It ignited a passion for creating my own fragrances and making gifts for family and friends.  

My full-time employment fell victim to the pandemic. With time on my hands I started experimenting and developing more scents, inspired by the beautiful local surroundings of the Yorkshire Dales and my passion for seeking out new and exotic fragrances.

With my candles and diffusers selling well at local gift fairs and markets, I decided to team up with a handful of friendly local suppliers in the region who are just as passionate about promoting natural artisan products.

Having developed a larger range of fragrances, it seemed natural to share my products to a wider audience. So I hope you enjoy browsing this site and would welcome any feedback or questions about the products. 

I'd like to say a huge thank you to my family, friends, neighbours and local businesses who have been so supportive towards me and my fragrance journey so far. 


What's in a name?

I live on Elm Tree Square in the Dales village of Embsay. The square and the local Elm Tree Inn take their 
names from a tree that has stood there for many years. It was replaced in the late 20th century because of Dutch Elm Disease. A new replacement was planted in 2007.

All my fragrances are inspired by plants and flowers - with local scents such as Rose, Jasmine and Honeysuckle combining with more exotic personal favourites including Lemongrass, Tonka Bean and Oud. My branding has been designed to reflect a botanical theme with each fragrance given its own individual look.
