It first started in the bee yard, I have kept bees for over 20 years and soon after starting with the bees began looking for ways to incorporate some of the honey into bath products. Honey has wonderful qualities for the body, inside and out. It is a humectant, it draws moisture so it is great in soaps to make them more moisturizing, it is also antibacterial. So I started experimenting with soaps and scrubs for family gifts and there began Grubby Girl. I am also a gardener, by trade and at home, so I wanted to incorporate some of the things grown on the farm (cucumbers in farm Fresh Soap, carrots in SunWorshipper soap etc.) I also have very sensitive skin and can’t use most commercially produced soaps and lotions, and I am sensitive to strong scents as well, so I make Grubby Girl with natural and gentle ingredients.
