Hi! I’m Sarah and I figured I should do a little ‘Meet the Maker’ post and introduce myself to our new followers!

Five years ago, I found myself low on funds after my husband and I bought a house and moved out of the city. I was used to spoiling my loved ones for Christmas, but I just couldn’t afford to, so a dear friend recommended I craft something to gift like “soap or candles.” A light bulb went off in my head! Soap!!

I had recently switched to natural soap myself after struggling most of my life with sensitive skin. It had changed my skin dramatically, so I figured I’d give it a try. I invested $200 in everything I’d need to make a few batches, and I was immediately hooked. I posted pictures of them on Facebook because I was so excited about how they turned out! Friends and family started asking if I was selling them! Fast forward three years later, I was able to quit my job and make soaping my full-time job! Fast forward again two more years, and my husband was able to quit his job too!! You can find our soaps in 18 states now!!

It’s been such a rewarding journey. It’s hard work, but it’s the kind of work that makes you want to wake up early and continue to be better. I’ve learned so much about myself, my limits, and how you can’t succeed without the help and support of others. The support I’ve received from my friends, family, husband, employees, and customers has humbled me beyond belief. I / we will continue to make you proud and be the best we can be for you and our planet.
