Home of handcrafted Tallowed Touch tallow balm skin care products and vegetarian Magic Wand Stick Salves.

You have tried everything for your dry skin condition and are at your wit’s end...

Welcome to Mother Makings where you will find nourishing, long-lasting, super-emollient tallow balms and tallow lip balms made from local 100% Grass-fed Beef Tallow from Hickory Nut Gap Farm(R).

Our products are highly functional, wholesome, and elegant in their simplicity!

Tallowed Touch is our first and main product. It is our version of tallow balm crafted specifically to relieve the long-time dry skin eczema that I suffered from 2000 to 2012. Changing my diet and always using gloves to wash dishes were also an important part of getting my dyshidrotic eczema under control but the long lasting moisturizing quality of the tallow balm soothed my distressed skin better than any commercial product I had ever used (and I have tried lots!). It worked so well that I knew I had to make more so that others could find relief with their own dry skin conditions as well and Mother Makings was born.

Mother Makings is a small Mompreneur business that believes in sustainability and resourcefulness.

-We source local 100% grass-fed beef tallow from Hickory Nut Gap Farm® in Fairview, NC, USA (https://www.hickorynutgapfarm.com/)
-We source only organic ingredients for our nourishing skin care products
-We use only high quality certified organic essential oils, never fragrance oils (which are artificial)
-All of our products are handcrafted in small batches for quality
-We use sustainable and recyclable materials for our product packaging
-We use colored paper, upcycled newspaper, misprinted product labels and their waxy sheets to create our handmade envelopes and padded mailers. We also source eco-friendly compostable recycled boxes from EcoEnclose (https://www.ecoenclose.com/) for larger orders. All of which can be reused.

Mother Makings products are handcrafted with great care from the heart of the home. We hope you will love them as much as we do!

We would love to hear from you! Please let us know what you think and if you have any questions or concerns!

Additional policies and FAQs
Disclaimer:

I am a full-time mother, not a medical professional, and none of Mother Makings’ products have been regulated by the FDA. Mother Makings descriptions are meant only to inform and have been carefully researched to the best of my knowledge.

Mother Makings uses therapeutic grade essential oils - never fragrance oils - in its skin care products. If you are pregnant or nursing please be aware that many essential oils are not recommended for use during pregnancy and although the amount used may be small I want to be sure that you are aware of the possible risk. Here is a wonderful blog post by the Hippy Homemaker that discusses essential oils safety for babies and children: (http://www.thehippyhomemaker.com/essential-oil-safety-babies-children/)
Please educate yourself and when in doubt contact your midwife, doctor or medical practitioner.

Mother Makings skin care products are handcrafted in small batches; variances in color and scent concentration may occur. Claims concerning my products usefulness stem directly from having been tested repeatedly by myself, family and loyal customers.
