I started my soap making business in 1999. I was inspired to try my hand at Soap Making while at a “Mom’s Retreat” one weekend. One of the speakers mentioned Soap Making and it was like it just reached out and grabbed me, I don’t remember anything else that was said the whole weekend!

My daughter, Lindsay, was the emotional reason for wanting to try making soap. She had terrible Eczema on her hands and we had tried everything to heal it. I can say it was the right move.

After reading every book I could find —and lots of trial and error, I finally found perfect recipe!  A bar of soap that lathered wonderfully and had a high amount of the oil I hoped would make the difference in her skin, Olive Oil, 50%. It did! She has not had an Eczema issue in 17 years!!

What started in my kitchen as a mission to help her bloomed into a growing business that went from kitchen-to-basement-to-garage workshop at my home until this year.



In October of 2016 we opened our storefront in downtown Muncie, Indiana!

I have wholesale accounts in several states that purchase my soaps and I retail them online on my website— I also have FaceBook and Instagram accounts where I market my soaps. I just recently open a blog page too!

The most rewarding part of this business is when I receive emails or calls like this these:

“The soap was on my porch and I am so very excited and grateful! I have had moderate to severe psoriasis for over half my life and I have continuously gone to doctor after doctor pharmacy after pharmacy , and I had yet to find anything that helped! I picked up two bars of your soap in a quant little shop in West Jefferson nc, and immediately fell in love ! It has done wonders not only for my skin but for my self esteem as well! Never stop doing what you do. Without knowing it you’ve helped someone that had lost all hope. Sincerely thank you! 
I have been talking up your product everywhere I go! 
Thank you again.”—Meg Mason

I receive compliments like this very often and it the reward of making a product that not only smells wonderful and is beautiful but is actually beneficial to the health of my customers is beyond words. They bring tears of joy and accomplishment and I am so thankful that the great big hand of entrepreneurism reached out and grabbed me!

Downtown Muncie has been a great place to be….I have been welcomed with opened arms by so many and I am very thankful for all the new friends I have met!
