Katie Henderson’s childhood was full of people making things. Her grandmother was an ardent fiber artist, gardener and excellent cook. Her grandfather was a cabinet maker for New York Central Railroad. Her dear mother too was always working with something, refinishing and re-upholstering furniture and making her own laundry soap.
Katie never saw a box of laundry soap in her house, only large tins of hand grated soap flakes that made this phenomenal head of bubbles over her Easy washing machine. Playing with bubbles was the start of her soap passion!
In her thirties, as a registered nurse, she worked in the emergency rooms, and would plaster people with various medicines, particularly Nitro-paste to relieve angina. It worked more reliably than Nitroglycerin tablets placed under the tongue. She began to wonder just what else your skin would absorb, and since you daily use soap, slathering it over your entire body, she was determined to find out just what was in it. She has four children and with their health topmost in her mind, she set out to research soap at her local library in Twinsburg, Ohio.
She read every soap ingredient label and did not like what she saw – detergents & chemicals. She thought – this is not real soap! She then set out to make her own soap with mainly food ingredients that you are not afraid to use both inside and out.
Her goal over the past 30 years has been to create soaps, mainly out of edible, healthy, good for the body and soul items with occasional safety tested fragrances added.
This is her story and it is her dream to share her sudsy little achievements with you!
