An award-winning company creating a range of natural room sprays designed with women in mind has discovered that men also love the sensual sprays.

Margaret Morrison-Macleod set up The Divine Hag in January 2017 after being inspired by Ganavan beach near Oban where she spent happy childhood days. With a workshop in Oban and an office in London, Margaret hand crafts the room sprays using a mix of organic aromatherapy oils. As demand grows Margaret is soon to release a range of reed diffusers and candles with the same signature scents.

With support from Business Gateway Argyll and Bute, Margaret now sells online at as well as stockists in Scotland and London.

The Divine Hag was one of six winners of a Business Gateway Argyll and Bute competition which saw Margaret win a trade stand at the popular Best of the West festival.

Margaret said: ‘I was thrilled that my product was chosen to represent the Best of The West. I had a wonderful response to my products and to the beautifully crafted Baby Bliss spray which launched on the day. It was wonderful to meet customers and get feedback, as a result I will be bringing forward the launch of my menopause relief spray as so many women asked if I made a product such as this and it is currently being tested.

‘I had a lovely day, driving in the early morning sunshine from Oban and Inveraray Castle was a magical location. I am very grateful for the help and support given by Business Gateway.’
