Based in Portugal, Aurelie de Sousa – also known as Ellie – is an artisan and designer seeking beauty in little things. Since she was a child she always loved herbalism, aromatherapy and the emotionally rich realm of perfumery. She found all these elements in soap making.

Her brand is named “By Ellie” and her work is based on nature’s pharmacy combining vegetable oils, essential oils, fragrances and botanical extracts. She’s not only creating a natural soap with luxurious and skin loving ingredients, but also something beautiful. The colors, the shape, the texture, the ingredients are carefully chosen thinking on the relationship between design & function, the results are beautifully crafted soaps. She says on her page:”I love what I do and I want to share my passion with others: creating little luxuries that no one should do without.”
