The need to get out of the house and make something beautiful was the original motivation. Tim was instantly hooked and soon began making Beeswax & Raw Honey Soaps in all sorts of different styles and experimenting until this new craft had been perfected during the Covid-19 pandemic.
While Leah's interest turned to Sugar Scrubs & Whipped Body Butters, which beeswax made even better. It wasn't long before Salons and Beauticians were calling for tubs of both and requesting more colors and aromas for high end client services.
