About Us

As a child, I remember my grandmother always having homemade lye soap by her kitchen and bathroom sinks. The odd shaped chunk of soap with the unusual smell fascinated me. I never saw her make soap, as that was not considered an activity safe for children to be around.

In 2003, my friend Becky asked me to help her make soap and I eagerly agreed. Before we began, we thoroughly studied some books on soapmaking. We used natural vegetable and nut oils, added natural essential oils for scent and some botanicals for interest and color. After only a few batches, I was hooked! I haven't bought commercial soap since!

With my interest in soapmaking piqued, I began to search the internet for more information. As I researched soapmaking information, I also found information on making lotion and other body care products. I thought what fun it would be to learn to make them and gradually expanded my line of products.

As an RN, I wanted to make products that not only smelled good but also promoted healthy skin and had therapeutic value. I studied hundreds of recipes, tried several of them and finally formulated my own recipes for each product. During my research, I studied the properties of different oils and butters and the qualities they contribute to a formulation. Then I considered the body part I wanted to treat to create nourishing, moisturizing, luxurious products.

Although my soap isn't my grandmother's homemade soap, I still feel a connection with her with every batch I make. Just like my grandmother, I could use "store bought" soap, I know I have a much better product.
