In 1993 a retired Australian Hot Air Balloonist emigrated to Norwich England, where he founded Abbey Essentials.
In those early days Abbey Essentials would advertise oils and handmade cosmetics in the local paper and would cycle around the city delivering orders in person. By the late 90’s Abbey Essentials was one of the few small businesses selling online.
Today Abbey Essentials distribute all over the world, whilst remaining a small independent business. We pride ourselves on delivering top quality essential oils and providing expert advice, friendly customer service, and encouraging members of our community to advise and inspire each other too.
Our founder still maintains his sense of adventure, sailing, skiing and flying whenever he gets the chance.
