Ela Nurture No 2 Hand Soap and Lotion Kitchen


Elä Life, the sister brand of ALSO Home is a home aromatherapy and skincare brand created by Anna Schmidt.

Where ALSO Home is to live simply, Elä is to live well.

Elä brings the finishing touches to your home as well as enabling moments to show yourself love and selfcare.

Inspired again by the simplicity of Scandinavia, Anna set about to create a beautiful brand that would sit with and carry the same beautiful aesthetic of ALSO Home. When Anna was in the 2nd year of her Textile Design Degree at Winchester School of Art, she spent 3 months in Norway. She often references this period of her life for falling in love with Scandinavia. Her time there was during the depths of winter and she marvelled at the many candles that the Norwegians lit in their homes. The beautiful finishing touches around their homes inspired her deeply and has stayed with her since.

The Elä brand is designed around 5 essential oil blends Begin No 1, Nurture No 2, Pause No 3, Grounded No 4 and Rest No 5, that take you from the start of the day right through to the end of the day as you wind down to sleep. Hand blended by Anna, the initial creation of the blends came from her and her instinctive hunt for calm, uplifting and refreshing fragrances that would help set the tone and ambience in her home. 

Anna has created a range of candles, fragrance, skincare and accessories to care, nurture and nourish at key moments throughout the day. Carefully designed and thought through, there is something for everyone or every product you need to care for yourself throughout the day or for the most thoughtful gift.
