Meld Botanicals, otherwise known as Meld was founded by Allison Baird in 2018 in East London in order to provide beautifully crafted and skilfully chosen holistic oil blends to enhance the well being of the people who use it. Allison has long been interested and fascinated by the natural world specifically the plants and trees around us, well crystals and stones too! She trained as a herbalist in Edinburgh in 2008 and is currently learning the art of natural perfumery and loves working with essential oils. Allison currently works in Mental Health and has sought to combine her passion and knowledge of the medicinal power of plants with her desire to help others to create a product line with the goal to improve people's mental health and overall well being.
The melding process is where alchemy comes into play and can typically take from three days to a week. Initially, some of the oils might stand out after they are added to the blend. Allowing the blend time for the different components to meld and marry allows the final fragrance and effect to change qualitatively. It's the alchemy aspect of the work..."the whole is greater than it's individual parts"...which fascinates and inspires.
