Welcome and thank you for stopping by.
Esther Rose is a company that specializes in making all natural, handcrafted soap, bath and cleaning products using locally sourced Michigan ingredients as much as possible. Sadly, we still cannot grow coconuts here, but maybe someday! Rather than overload your senses with heavy perfumes, essential oils are used to give just the right amount of beautiful, gentle fragrance while offering a variety of natural, holistic benefits. And, only the finest natural botanicals and herbs are used for colorants – no lab generated colors or additives, ever! The possibilities are endless with selections featuring tallow, goat milk, natural clays, and so much more!
We believe in keeping our products 100% junk free, and 100% made in Michigan.
As a wife and mom, I have always been concerned about what my family puts in, and on, their bodies! For as long as I can remember, I have researched health and wellness topics, and been interested in other aspects of natural living such as gardening, growing our own food, or just figuring out how to do things better. Now, don’t get me wrong – I just can’t afford to have my grocery budget 100% organic, or my skin regimen that way, either. But, like you, I do the best I can with what I am given.
Back in 2015, through my reading and researching, and making things myself, it just was a natural progression to try my hand at making soap, so I did! That first batch hooked me in, like so many other soap makers. And, as a consumer, I never went back to store-bought commercial “beauty bars”.
My favorite part of making soap is the research and development stages! Learning about all of the different oils and butters, what they do, how they nourish the skin, and how they react in the saponification process is fascinating to me, and then bringing together all of that information to develop a beautiful piece of work is the greatest feeling.
I am thankful to be married to my best friend for over 20 years now who supports and encourages me in everything I do… except goats. He draws the line at getting goats, but I’m still working on it. We are now parents to four children, two of whom we have adopted from foster care, and we continue the foster care journey.
When I am not working on soap things, I like to be outside playing with our animals, working in the yard, or enjoying the beautiful home we call Northern Michigan.
Make your own, be your own, do your own.
