Angela's Profile

About

My name is Angela... and I am a germaphobe by association.

My Dad received a heart transplant in 2005, and is extremely susceptible to illness due to his anti-rejection medications. His medications lower his immune system, so it is really easy for him to get sick and extremely hard for him to get better.

Our home has become a "germ-free" zone and anti-bacterial haven. Okay, maybe not completely "germ-free", but defintely more so than the average home. We are big about washing our hands before we do ANYTHING and we use A LOT of hand sanitizer.

It is so important for us and everyone to stay clean, but that doesn't mean we have to have use products that smell like medicine or that dry out our skin in order to do so.

My Mom, who owns her own jewelry shop here on Etsy (http://creativityismessy.etsy.com), taught me how to make bath and beauty products a few years ago and I just love to do it. I make them as gifts for my friends and family and sometimes sell them at craft shows.

After seeing my Mom enjoy selling her work here on Etsy, I really wanted to give it a try as well (with her help, of course!). We put our heads together and created a plan for my very own Etsy shop... and thats when Germaphobe was born!!

I try very hard to keep these products as simple and natural as possible, while still making them feel and smell amazing. I don't use any unnecessary dyes or chemicals when making my products. I try to use ingredients that are safe enough to eat (but please don't). Often the only unnatural ingredients are purely to add fragrance.

I know that you will love these products as much as I have enjoyed making them!!
