Tara Patey's Profile
If asked when, how and where On a Branch Soaps began, I would have to answer that it began when I was 5 years old, making mud pies on the side of our dirt road in Newfoundland. It continued when I was 7 years old, to the great delight of my mom, by mixing her various cosmetics and toiletries together in the bathroom of the two storey house built by my grandfather. A seed was planted in my 21 year old brain by the discovery of an old soap making book found in a used bookstore in Guelph, Ontario. The confidence to mix the various ingredients required to make soap was gained from a degree in applied chemistry and biology. Many years later, inspiration was found from spending my days with two young boys that make me laugh, from the books that have been my companions since childhood and from stepping outside my front door.
On a Branch Soaps are hand crafted in small batches…
