Welcome to Jo Wood Organics

Welcome to Jo Wood Organics; offering beautifully crafted, organic skincare and beauty products, made in the UK from all natural ingredients.

Founded by Jo Wood, our products have been created by a passion for all things organic; since using an organic lifestyle to recover from an illness in the ‘90s, Jo has been on a mission to take care of what we put into, and onto, our bodies.

Offering Eau de Toilette initially, with Body Oil and Natural Wax Candles launching in 2017, our products are formulated from two fragrances: 

Amka

Amka is a fragrance of energy and spontaneity, with a romantic heart of Iranian rose otto, Egyptian jasmine and bright fresh top notes of neroli and bergamot. Green mandarin and sweet orange add a fresh, vibrant layer, and the whole combination is grounded in a soft, spicy base of cedarwood. 

Usiku

Usiku is a resting and relaxing fragrance, combining top notes of rosemary and pineneedle with a spicy hit of cardamom and hot ginger. A complex heart of coriander, clove and clary sage give way to the woody aromas of Virginian and Chinese cedarwood, patchouli and vetiver.

 

We’ll be stocked in major department stores so you can try our products in person, and we’ll be releasing a number of new products during 2017 and beyond… Watch this space!
