Our Story

We've loved every minute of our journey

An Idea is Born

 Here at Earthmuffin's  soap  making is a tradition . We 've been herb farmers & gardners from our roots. I  evolved as an herbalist & herbal soap crafter 15 years prior to attaining  Herbalist Certification in 2001.  I began writing recipes to create my own natural body care . I wanted the highest natural quality ingredients . 
 Making Hand-milled herbal soap,  at Earthmuffins' where  all is handcrafted - vegetable based french milling -process using only  plant based  ingredients from the earth. My soaps are saponified oils : pure  organic coconut & shea butter & local sunflower oil (healthy skin oils)+ local  raw honey , with  cold pressed organic olive oil , mango butter, pure  Vitamin E , organic  beeswax & 100% sea salt for saponification process! Springtime Ritual- i mill the pure white base again , I add organic  skin conditioners aloe vera gel ,oatmeal  for soothing & softening  skin.  I also add loofah, mint leaves or espresso for (exfoliating).  
These  fine  soaps  are made in small batches to ensure quality. all Earthmuffins' products are  Phosphorous free- no  dyes-  + only plant based ingredients & colorants.
Because It takes many long hours - we hand mill  the soap base  in wintertime.
Spring & Fall times we pour the  final hand milling  of our fine herbal soaps ,  where adding only food grade natural plant base colors from sustaining  sources . Plant based: madder root powder(orange + red),  red currant extract, bergamot &  violet flower powders,   espresso bean makes  (earth brown & grayish), Vit. E, honey & vanilla extract for ivory, green from chlorophyll + mint leaves, last but not least green tea & lemongrass.  Sustaining sources  for our  Pure essential oils which are glorious for scent & amazing aromatics!  Simple ingredients for sensational results!

We are about our ..SKIN. ..

Healthy Skin is not just skin deep. It's body talk! Beyond pain, skin is the best means of our bodies talking to us!  Ignoring and suppressing what your body - is saying - means future payback...Fortunately you don't have to do either. While cleansing with  our herbal teas, tinctures &  soaps, & purging which helps us  cleanse out things trapped inside. There's No mystery to  why wonderful care comes through natural products for your mind-body-spirit..... 

 Healing support with  natural herbals is the path to healing..We can help our bodies resolve issues thoroughly and naturally, though not necessarily over night!

 Sustaining sources for my ingredients.
