All products are lovingly handmade in small batches from totally unique and original recipes, using only the highest quality natural ingredients.

"We’d like to congratulate Samantha on her entrepreneurial spirit, we were all incredibly impressed with the growth of Southsea Bathing Hut and how well the business is doing.
