About

I`m just a small town girl from Connecticut with a family and a dog and cat (part of the family). I grew up listening intendly to all the true stories my grandmother would tell about her grandmother who was Indian. She would make home remedies that worked containing herbs and ingredients you could pronounce,not long chemical names that you find in store bought products.

I have been making and marketing all natural skincare, body care, handmade soap and candles since 2004, and selling them on Etsy since 2008. Doing research, experimenting and gaining more and more knowledge and information on essential oils,carrier oils and other natural ingredients on a continuing basis keeps my product line fresh. All of my products are made using all natural ingredients, you don`t need a chemistry class to know whats in my products. Why not give my products a try…

While the process is similar, my lye soaps do not resemble the harsh lye soaps our grandmothers used to make. I manufacture in small batches, and everything is done by hand right in my own workshop.

I`m always trying new blends using essential oils and natural herbs and spices in the mixes. Making soap is like baking a cake to me. Simple and handmade cold process soap with over 50% olive oil and scented with essential oils. My soaps don`t contain detergents and artificial ingredients like store bought soaps. Once you try handmade all natural soaps you will never go back to store bought.

The creative process is a cocktail of instinct, skill, culture and a highly creative feverishness.

I am very proud to say I was recently featured in Connecticut Magazine Blog.
