About the Shop

How It All Began

It all began in the basement of my childhood home outside of Boston, Massachusetts where my mom, Martha, organized an after school “Art Club” program. There we did everything from painting giant under the sea themed murals on the walls and learning to quilt, to going on nature walks to find items to incorporate into fabric design and papermaking projects; it was there that I fell in love with creating.

I have spent the years following college working with at-risk, disadvantaged or special needs youth and their families. Notably I previously worked for the YWCA of Lowell, Massachusetts where I facilitated Girls Going Green. In that program, the girls learned job preparedness and other life skills while engaging the community in workshops around the idea of DIY cosmetics and informing others about the toxins that exist in the store-bought products. I loved the work I did with the Girls Going Green teens, but I got the adventure bug and took off for the PNW.

I now happily live in Southern Oregon and work in an elementary special education classroom for my local school district, but I still crave to connect with and make a difference in my community while fulfilling my desire to create. What has come out of that is EB Simply Naturals, an artisan soap line.

The Bigger Purpose

EB Simply Naturals will always be evolving and it includes a dream to tell the stories of those whose voices often go unheard. I am still working out the details of what that looks like; perhaps I would work with local organizations to help them gain exposure, perhaps I can create care packages for those in need including handcrafted soaps, or maybe it looks like something else entirely. Stay tuned! Or even better contact me with suggestions or if you want to collaborate!

Products at a Glance

EB Simply Naturals’ soaps are handcrafted in small batches with all of the love and none of the BS. This means that I select only the best ingredients, local (as local as my own garden) and organic whenever possible, and that I am transparent with you about my practices. I never use artificial dyes, or perfumes. I feel good about putting my products out there for my community and am happy to work with you to make an individualized product to meet your needs.
