Heather and Kate have been passionately creating luxurious natural soap together for two years. Pleasantly surprised at the accessibility of the soap making process, they are continually inspired by nature’s gifts in the creation of new recipes. Heather and Kate are very intrigued by the powerful healing and mood altering potential of essential oils, and use them extensively in their daily routine. When they're not busy concocting personal care recipes, you can find them hula hooping with the Royal City Hoop Union.
