ABOUT LITTLE HOMESTEAD FARM
My name is Gina-Marie and I am a teacher, wife, and mommy to my beautiful daughters Jada-Marie, Ava and Rhea. My husband Alan and I began a journey over 12 years ago to rid our family of as many harsh chemicals as we possibly could. On this journey we learned that we were exposing ourselves to hundreds of chemicals every day in simple things like our soaps, shampoos and lotions. This led me to begin creating my own bath and body products for our family and once I started there was no turning back. I love knowing that the products I make contain a small handful of natural, readable, safe ingredients.
All of our soaps are handmade from oils using the hot process soap method. Using this method allows me to pick and choose what extra moisturizing oils are added to the bar after the soap making process is complete. The soaps are made with GMO free, sustainably harvested, food grade oils. We never use soy or vegetable oil! They are made in small batches and each individual bar is hand cut. No dyes are ever used to add color. All coloring is done using natural botanicals (i.e. ground fruits/spices) or natural clays.
Please allow for slight variations in color and size. Our soaps do not contain any bar hardeners. To extend the life of your handmade soap keep it on a ventilated soap dish and let dry between uses. Each bar weighs approximately 4oz.
In addition to making safe bath and body products to share with our community we are on a mission to help reduce waste. Almost all of our products are sold in plastic free packaging. Due to safety concerns our sugar scrubs are packaged in recyclable plastic containers. We always strive to find packaging that is earth friendly, reusable or recyclable. These include items like tins, glass, paper, and biodegradable bath bomb wraps.
