Dilecta was created by Husband-and-Wife team Kerry and Steve. Established in 2012, Dilecta has been a work in progress, but the overall aim has always been to create a handmade, high quality & consistent product, whatever that may be? We want our customers to be happy when they purchase one of our creations, in fact, Dilecta means “Beloved or Loved” in Latin and this is what we stand for where our products and service is concerned.

In 2012 Dilecta created a range of natural skin care products, these were very popular, especially the Tangerine lip balm (see below) which we still get requests for today! Who knows? Maybe we may introduce it again in the future!

In 2015 Dilecta moved from it’s base in Manchester to a wonderful part of the world, Penrith the gateway to the Lake District. Here a change of direction happened where we looked to create a range of Natural Beard Oils & Balms, again we had excellent reviews from our customers.

In 2022 Dilecta looked to create a range of Wax Melts, Reed Diffusers and maybe other exciting home fragrance products. We have used a natural Coconut & Rapeseed wax blend and will look at using natural fragrances in a new range we plan soon!

The future – We would love to extend our range of home products and keep our loyal customers and new customers happy with their products.

Speaking of loyal customers, we have almost 500 followers on Facebook now and we are so happy with your continued interest and support.
