Thank you for your love and support for my all natural soaps, salts, beard balms, candles and other creations! I found my new hobby and obsession!
I am a wife to a very loving and supporting husband, mother of 3 amazing grown children, and grandmother of 4 precious grandsons.
I began my career path many moons ago as a baker/cake decorator/pastry chef for 20+ years then shifted my focus to a science based career teaching biology for another 20 years. I've always been an entrepreneur to some degree. So, now that I am older and wiser.... I made the transition from full time biology teacher to full time soap maker.
I find it hard to choose just one craft or hobby to focus on as I appreciate and enjoy so many. I love learning and helping others explore the wonders of nature. I love working in the lab. I love saving seeds and planting my garden, which in turn allows me to use all the flowers and produce in my soap products. I love cooking, baking, crochet, patchwork quilting, working with wood and leather, making flower arrangements, etc.
I have a passion for natural skin products and have been searching for quite some time for solutions for my own skin care needs (dry skin - Eczema). After developing a few recipes for natural soaps and bath salts, my family was eager to try out my creations. When word got out, my neighbors and co-workers were asking for samples and inquiring how they too could get soap and body products for their friends and loved ones.
I suppose all my career paths merged nicely into what I now call Naturally Rustic Soaps & Salts. I am so grateful for the encouragement I have received from family, friends, and coworkers.
Thank you for supporting local businesses!
