Though this may sound silly, my interest in making soap actually started in middle school after I read The Lord of the Rings for the first time. I loved Aragorn's character, his self-sufficiency and how not only could he always be relied on to take care of himself, he could take care of others too! It was the part that he identified Kingsfoil, a known weed, as a plant that could slow the Ringwraith's poison that got me interested in herbology. My dad helped me grow my first herb garden and I studied their medicinal uses. I also wanted to learn how to be self sufficient in other ways and my interest in herbs led to my interest in soap making. I wanted to learn to make my own soap.
I just love all the wonderful things found in nature from the natural remedies of herbs and flowers to the smells that they bring into your home. So much of what comes from the earth is beneficial for our skin. I wanted to bring that into my soaps and body products. Almost all of our soaps, scrubs, and bath salts use dried botanicals. The products that don't have dried botanicals use shea butter, coconut oil, and other plant based ingredients that moisturize and strengthen skin. As we continue to grow and learn we love being able to try new recipes and experiment with new methods.
My husband and I recently had our first child and thanks to Etsy and all of you I am able to be a stay at home mom! My daughter sits in her bouncy chair while I work in my soap shop. I love the opportunity Etsy has provided for creative individuals to turn their hobbies into careers.
I am a new mom to a beautiful baby girl! I decided I wanted to stay home with my daughter and focus on Botanical Bars. Thanks to Etsy and all our wonderful customers I am able to do just that!
