Handcrafted Artisan Soaps, Herbal Skin Care, Beeswax Castings
Welcome to January's offerings and we have been having quite a challenge to stay warm here in the "frozen north" this month! The woodstove is going full tilt and the cats are all enjoying it! I have been formulating natural botanical soaps and herbal skin care since 1991 but my interest in all things herbal began as a child. My husband and I came to the beautiful Lakes Region of New Hampshire in 1980 and have made our home in an old circa 1835 farmhouse ever since, sharing our home with a bevy of rescued pets that at one time included 28 cats. Today we share our old home with three very spoiled kitties. I combine my handmade soaps with vintage/antique items whenever possible for that special gift. Once you try our fine soaps you will find them to be the best handcrafted soaps on the market. Beautiful vintage packaging is my specialty and samples are included with each order. I also offer antique and vintage items in my Etsy shop.
