Who we are:
Airmid was the Irish Celtic Goddess of Herbs and Healing to the Tuatha De Danann, Ireland's magical ancient tribe.
Airmid is a family business based in the Burren * Cliffs of Moher UNESCO Global Geopark with all products handmade by Kevin Lynch. Kevin has suffered from severe eczema since birth and after their second son was born with eczema in 2009 they began looking for an alternative to commercial chemical products and began making chamomile soap which is gentle enough even for the most sensitive skin.
Kevin is an organic horticulturist and they already had a garden full of medicinal herbs grown by organic methods, and so they were soon hooked. Handmade soap is wonderful for your skin, because it contains the natural glycerin which occurs in the soap making process and leaves your skin silky smooth. Airmid only make by the traditional cold process method with minimal heat applied, keeping all the goodness of the ingredients in the final product. Airmid produce bar soaps, shaving soap and shampoo bars by traditional cold process methods. All bars are cut by hand and are cured for at least 6 weeks before sale to ensure a hard, high quality luxury product.
Airmid are passionate about supporting local (where possible) and sourcing the finest ingredients from sustainable ethical sources worldwide. It is the quality of their ingredients that make their products so effective. Pure essential oils are used first for skin benefit and them aroma. There is no compromise on quality and Airmid have full control of all ingredients and production which is essential.
Raw honey, beeswax and propolis are sourced locally and used in Airmid hand poured moisture lotion bars and lip balms. Beard oils, body oil, aromatherapy candles, bath melts and gifts complete the range.
Products (apart from body/beard oil) are in solid form and are ideal for travel, making them a unique gift from Ireland.
Airmid Irish Skincare range was produced in the Dromid Gaeltacht, Waterville, Co. Kerry during 2017-18 where we were proud members of the Original Kerry Craft Trail.
