About Mindful Soap
The Mindful Soap Company started as a result of my son who was diagnosed with autism at the age of 3. Later on, he began going to therapy sessions at the Brain Balance Center. At the beginning of each session, his coach would place a drop of peppermint essential oil on his shoulder, which has been shown to help stimulate the right side of the brain.
Having a background in Biology, this was all very interesting to me. I researched essential oils a little further and discovered that many oils have health benefits and have been used in different ways down through the centuries. Around the same time I was learning about all of this, my husband bought me a cheap soap making kit. I had a fun time trying it out, but the fragrance and color were the typical artificial junk you find in most skin-care products.
One day the thought occurred to me, "Could I make a better soap that is totally natural and includes the essential oil used in my son's therapy so that he could get some added benefits while working with him at home?"
I began purchasing soap molds and soap making ingredients and set to work. After a lot of trial and error, I taught myself how to make soap from scratch using the traditional cold-process method. The next thing I knew, the Brain Balance Center wanted to buy some and give it to their clients. Friends and family loved it wanted to buy it too! This was the beginning of The Mindful Soap Company.
As a mom, I'm proud that I've developed all-natural, quality soap products that are safe for my family. As a business owner, I hope that you will enjoy what I put into my soap and appreciate what I don't!
