About

Bath and body products proudly made by a mother/daughter team in scenic, northeast Iowa.

It all started on a family trip to Door County, Wisconsin in 1999. At every road side stand our Mom would say, “Hey, we could do something like this, but maybe better.” And we knew we could. After we returned from the trip one of us purchased a book on soapmaking and conveniently forgot it at Mom’s house. She flipped through the book and said, “I can do this, but maybe better.” And we knew she could. Close to 20 years later and Mom has done just that. She opened a gift shop in the small rural Iowa town she lives in, and has crafted her own soap recipes from the very beginning. Customers started using the soap and they came back telling us how much they loved it. It made their skin feel better, they didn't get that tight, dry feeling after getting out of the shower, and the additives and oils we used was helping their skin health improve. We started to make additional products like lotions, sugar scrubs, and lip balms and the focus of our business became creating bath and body products that people loved using, not only for the scent, but for what it did to their skin.

That family trip to Door County was to commemorate the birthday of our daughter/sister who passed away in 1998. We learned valuable lessons after that tragic event. That if you have a dream, find a way to make it reality. That if you want to create something, put the effort and hard work into it being the best it can be. And most importantly - if you want to feel like your life is important, fill it with people who make you feel that way. Thank you to all our customers for taking time to find us and purchase from our business, we hope you love our products just as much as we've loved making them for you.
