Memories of My Childhood on the Farm

06 Jul

Oatmeal soap

My family works with our hands. We’ve relied on our skills in carpentry, fishing, steel construction, farming, sewing and yes, soap making, to live and thrive. We love it. I can remember when I was little and used to watch my mom cook in our kitchen, preparing delicious meals with the food grown from our farm. I remember her singing songs as she pinned our clothes on the clothes line outside. How I long for those tender, wistful memories.

Doesn’t time seem to fly nowadays?

No one seems to have the time anymore to do anything handmade. Furniture is made in cookie-cutter factories instead of in our garages where craftsmanship and quality was key. Clothes are made in sweatshops instead of by a loving aunt or grandma who took your measurements. And our food…

(sigh)

Instead of fresh, organically grown blueberries, strawberries and huckleberries that waited to be placed in a scrumptious pie or cake, we now have blueberries in a can, dripping with a too-sweet, sticky substance they tell us is “syrup.” How I long for the simpler days when families ate meals together and the TV was NOT center stage.

You know what I remember fondly?

The excitement of boiling tea leaves for our peppermint or lavender soap. It was an entire process! Picking the leaves, boiling them, straining them, letting the water cool down and deciding which soap was going to get the fragrant lavender water. At SoapMuffin, we hope to give you fond memories of a bygone era where things were a bit less complicated and quality mattered. We made very small batches of our soaps to ensure quality.

All of our handcrafted soaps are made fresh with real tea, buttermilk, goat milk, chocolate (yes…chocolate!) and Shea Butter from Ghana. Our little farm works hard to give each customer the best in skin care. Try one of our “muffins” today and feel the difference on your skin.
