About Us

I'm Ruth. I am married to Luke, my very artistic husband and have 2 crazy-outdoor-loving toddlerboys. We live in the beautifully diverse city of Bradford, West Yorkshire.


Currently I work as an Optometrist, but have a passion for healthy & natural living. I grew up in a family who foraged for fruit and grew their own vegetables, so I was taught from a young age how to cook from scratch with natural, fresh ingredients. This has instilled in me a passion for cooking and an awareness of what we eat & use around us every day.


Since, beginning to use essential oils I can see that God has given us everything we need in creation to keep us healthy & well without having to resort to synthesised chemicals.


I want to use my passion of chemical-free living, ethical living & the use of natural products to help others on this journey & see lives changed.


My business Essencia by Ruth comes from Portuguese for essence meaning:

  • Nature
  • Soul
  • Being
  • Lifeblood


I will be sharing about my journey by:

  • running classes online & in person
  • running make & take parties
  • selling products which are ethical & benefit the environment
  • sharing recipes
