Thank you for your love and support for my all natural soaps, salts, beard balms, candles, lotions 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 6 precious grandchildren.  

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 developing natural skin products and have been searching for quite some time for solutions for my own skin care needs (dry skin - eczema - aging skin).  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.  


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, coworkers, and customers.   

Thank you for supporting my local businesses!​
