ABOUT Evelyn Jane

I love the opportunity to talk about my farm and soap making! I don't just make soap. I am a continual student  of plants, herbs and essential oils. Natural living and health is my daily way of life. 

How This All Began

I was pretty fortunate to have an egg customer that was using essential oils and herbal knowledge in her every day life and shared so much wisdom with me. I was learning all I could about homeopathy at that time; around the year 2001. I was already almost chemical free at that time and already such a weirdo to everyone I knew! haha! 

Fast forward to 2010. My homeschoolers were more independent and it freed up a little time and I had soap making on my necessary list for self sufficiency. I was reading all that I could find and there wasn't much information available at that time and I had more in depth questions then I could get answers to thanks to my overthinking! 

Melody and Terry Crowl were dabbling in cold process soap making and were so gracious to show a group of ladies how it's done and that provided the answers to my questions and I jumped in full force. I practiced with a horrible recipe over and over to learn the stages. Then I studied oils to learn what the purpose was of each in soap making. I was full on with essential oils and herbs already and soap making fit into my life like it was a missing puzzle piece! 

The soap that really got the ball rolling for me was the Activated Charcoal soap. I created that for my son with acne and I've never changed the recipe since 2010! It's just a darn good soap! 

My soap has changed a lot over the years. I started with hot process and kept improving that and then I just went full on cold process and kept improving that and now it's a very smooth and somewhat predictable process that is an absolute joy to make! I'm very pleased with the quality of my soap and I still have so much to learn! It's such a beautiful journey! 

Most Asked Questions: 

Do you make all this yourself? 

 

YES!! Follow along on my Facebook and I show steps during the process periodically.

Do you actually have goats ? Do YOU actually milk them and care for them? 

YES! I do have some wonderful dairy goats that are really a huge blessing to me! They are super easy to manage and are comical and happy and produce a good amount of milk! 

I do all the farm things myself, including milking the goats! I live alone and am the caretaker of all the things going on. Which explains why my hair is often very insane!
