Handmade in Vermont......
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 Herbalism Certification in 2001. I began writing recipes to create my own natural body care . I wanted the highest natural quality ingredients . Here At Earthmuffins' we handcraft small batches- -to guarantee quality- saponification- a french milling process using only plant based ingredients from the earth. My soaps are pure organic coconut & shea butter + local sunflower oil for emollience . all of which support healthy skin....In addition: by adding only local raw honey , soothing aloe vera & cold pressed organic olive oil ,organic 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. Earthmuffins' products are Phosphorous free/chemical free- no dyes- + only plant based ingredients & colorants.
Because It takes many long hours - we hand mill the soap base in February.
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!
