The company’s name was inspired by the ancient Chinese tradition of barefoot doctors who travelled from village to village without shoes, dispensing wisdom and remedies. With their extensive knowledge of healing plants, Hilery and Jonathan had the perfect basis for a range of natural remedies and organic skin and hair care products for the 21st Century.
Jonathan Stallick and Hilery Dorrian met through a love of natural medicine. Their passion for the healing power of plants has led them to create the heaven-for-skin Barefoot SOS now know as Bare Botanicals range. Actually, Bare Botanicals has its roots in a problem that’s usually talked about in hushed whispers: head lice. When her daughter was affected by an outbreak at school, Hilery trawled the shops to find a natural head lice treatment – but as a knowledgeable homeopath, couldn’t find anything she was prepared to put on her daughter’s head. Over a cup of tea with Jonathan, Hilery discussed her dilemma. Together, they set about formulating their own solution – using carefully-selected, tried-and-trusted essential oils in a base of pure vodka. The formula worked brilliantly – and Barefoot SOS was born
