Salty Studio x Hoj

We are very excited to have creative and experimental food brand: Salty Studio part of our coming Winter Box! We have interviewed her creative founder: Maud de Rohan Willner.

Who are you, where are you from and where in the world are you now?

Hi! I’m Maud, a creative food and experience designer based in London, but I’m often travelling around the world when I can! Currently, I’m in the UK but planning some escapes very soon. I’m half British, half French, one foot in each country, which means I have an unconditional passion for croissants and marmite (maybe not at the same time though).

How often do you take some “me time” and how important it is for you?

I try to as much as possible, because being a business owner you can work very long hours and be constantly thinking about your to-do list, worrying about the next months etc. It’s easy to neglect this but it’s so important for your mental health, if not things can get quite bad and you lose passion for what you are doing, which is kind of essential!

What are your favourite wellbeing rituals to do at home?

I try to go to yoga classes to take out the stress and tension that builds up inside my body. In the evening I often do face masks and take a warm bath. Slow mornings are really nice too, listening to your body and what it needs: more sleep, healthier food, a stretch…

What are the benefits of your brand to a person’s wellbeing?

I like to show people they can be creative and take care of their wellbeing at the same time: playing with some new edible ingredients in a different way or some they might already know, being aware of what they are eating and creating rituals around simple actions.

What does intuition mean to you? And do you follow it often?

We need to learn to listen to our bodies a lot more, and to our intuition. Sometimes you need to slow down, and your body will tell you. I think intuition is also linked to self-confidence, and they go hand in hand: the reason we sometimes don’t follow our intuition is because we lack self-confidence, but actually, we must try to believe in ourselves more to trust our intuition!
