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 . 
 We  handcraft small batches- -  french milling saponification-process using only  plant based  ingredients from the earth. My soaps are  pure  organic coconut & shea butter  & local sunflower oils for emollience -  which support  healthier  skin .We also use local  raw honey , soothing aloe vera & cold pressed organic olive oil for olive oil soaps. We add  mango butter, pure  Vitamin E , organic  beeswax & 100% sea salt for saponification process!  Our Springtime Ritual- final milling the pure white base -with our lovely organic  skin conditioners aloe vera gel , soothing & softening  skin. Adding   either oatmeal or loofah makes for  marvelous exfollient bath bars! We  also use organic   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.   Adding only food grade natural plant base colors from sustaining  sources . Plant based: madder root powder (orange + red), black currant extract(dark pink), bergamot & violet flower powders for pinks, grays &  espresso bean makes  (earth brown gray). Vit. E, honey & vanilla extract for ivory, green from chlorophyll + mint leaves,  green tea & lemongrass. 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.
