Inspired By Nature
I fell in love with making crayons by accident. I have always loved to create, so it wasn’t surprising when my children too found delight when creating something of their own. I began experimenting with crayons shortly after they made their first scribble.
I started by blending mineral pigments with different textures of natural soy wax. Not too many people have a special connection to soy, but I do. My grandfather was a soybean farmer in rural Minnesota. I grew up watching these plants grow in his backyard. Throughout the summer this lovely plant becomes full until the whole field is a brilliant green. This image was inspiring to me. I worked on my crayons until they were just as brilliant and beautiful as the memory from where they came. I poured my crayons into shapes that inspired a love for nature.
In 2010 I sold my first box of crayons on Etsy. Since then my little craft business has grown. I've added designs and colors to my line and am constantly exploring new ideas for crayons. My hope is that Earth Grown Crayons inspires a connection to all things living and lovely, like it does for me.
Owner, Maker, Designer
I am a mother of three from beautiful Minnesota. I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family - biking, camping, and hiking. One of my favorite places is the Boundary Waters Canoe Area in northern Minnesota.
Earth Grown Crayons are hand-made from soy wax. Unlike most crayons which are made with paraffin wax, a petroleum product, Earth Grown Crayons are 100% biodegradable and eco friendly - as well as safe for young artists. I use soy that is free from genetically modified material and is pesticide and herbicide free. Tinted only with non-toxic pigments, each set is shaped designs that celebrates one of earth’s treasures.
All ingredients are non-toxic, but not recommended for children 3 or younger due to choking risks.
Crayons come packaged in recycled or reusable materials.
Natural soy wax has a frosty matte appearance. This goes away when they are held by warm hands. Soy crayons glide on smoothly to create a creamy texture.
