Susan + Caroline
Caroline's talent shone in everyday items such as the quilts and crochet work she made for her family. I have four of her quilts and enough Christmas tree ornaments to decorate several trees at a time! Her large garden had a supply of fresh veggies throughout the summer. Bread dough was continually rising, baking or being eaten somewhere in her house.
Sadly, Caroline died when I was still a teenager but her work ethic and pride in handcrafting was the inspiration to start my company.
Over 24 years ago, I searched in vain for chemical-free products to soothe my sensitive, acne prone skin. I decided to stop searching and instead utilize my knowledge of herbs, agriculture science and entrepreneurship to formulate my own line of skincare that is highly effective and a delight to use. I use only the finest ingredients available and lovingly craft each batch with my own hands.
I love being outdoors, especially riding bikes and hiking around Vermont. In August 2022, I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. It was scary and overwhelming but luckily, I already make products that helped me recover and heal from my double mastectomy. You can read about my cancer journey HERE -
