Peace be with you and Welcome to Loving Hands Made . My name is Emily and I’m 12 years old, I love creating soaps, being an American Heritage Girl, playing the piano and caring for my animals, swimming and gardening. I have a younger brother and sister who I love to create with. I thank God for my many blessings, strength and inspirations. I was diagnosed with Nephrotic syndrome 6 years ago, a chronic kidney disease where my immune system attacks my own kidneys for some reason. I am currently in remission but have to be careful with my diet, fluid intake and exposure to germs and started homeschooling to stay as healthy as possible. My mom, brother and I started making soaps in 2013 for a homeschool project. I really enjoyed the artistic creativity outlet it provided for me. I love to make people happy and give nice homemade gifts and this was the perfect thing! I started making and giving as gifts for people along with using the soaps for myself and I noticed a signifiant improvement in my dry skin and eczema . Soon a lot of interest grew from friends and family that used and fell in love with the smell and quality and wanted more for themselves and to give as gifts to others after they felt the benefits on their skin. We soon started selling a few to friends and family then expanded to selling a few weekends in the year at our church, Prince of Peace. With the grace of God, encouragement from my parents and the many friends and family we decided to expand our hobby into a business. At the time we started in 2013 we only had 3 different types of soaps and now we have made over 50 different soap varieties! This year we have added a shop on Facebook (facebook.com/lovinghandsmade) and Handmade Stores (http://www.handmadestores.com/lovinghandsmade) and ETSY. I hope you try our products, and don't forget to ‘like’ us and visit often as we like to constantly make new creations. Our products are handcrafted with our loving hands and made in small batches using the finest natural oils, butters, and botanicals, they are as natural as possible with limited ingredients and unnecessary additives, detergent and paraben free, non-GMO, and not tested on animals.
For: I am hoping to generate a some money for my college savings and to donate a percent of our profits to a charity organization called Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep (NILMDTS). It’s an organization that photographs families with still births. We learned about it because my baby sister Catherine Anne was born into the arms of angles almost 5 years ago. They do beautiful photography and we want to support their effort.
from our loving hands to yours
