Inspiration Comes in Many Forms
Why we do what we do
We are a small, family owned business located in the rural town of LaFollette in East Tennessee. We are just north of Knoxville, and about an hour & a half from Gatlinburg, which is a popular tourist destination located in the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains. Those mountains, along with knowing the history of the people that settled in them help inspire us every day.
We decided to try our hand at soap making initially as a hobby, but it quickly became a bit of an obsession. The entire process is fascinating, and being able to create something tangible that serves a purpose out of an array of individual ingredients is very satisfying. It is also leading us down a path of incorporating new products as well.
Our products are inspired by the abundant beauty of our planet and nature. Trees, plants, animals, air, water, soil, even the changing seasons; all offer their own unique attributes and contribute to this intensely beautiful environment we live in.
Many of the ingredients we use are taken directly from nature itself because we believe that's the way it was meant to be. Technology has helped us to advance in many important areas, but it will never completely take the place of Mother Nature.
While we do use modern advances in our manufacturing process as far as tools are concerned (we aren't outside hovering around the fire like they did in the Colonial days), we make our soaps the old fashioned way in the sense that we combine all of the ingredients from scratch using only what is absolutely needed and nothing else.
We don't compromise on the quality of our ingredients because our name is on the packaging and we take that seriously. We strive to offer products that are made with high quality ingredients you are familiar with, and we put an extensive amount of time into finding those ingredients..
At Simply Earth Boutique, offering you handcrafted products that you can feel good about using is what matters to us.
