Hanging Herbs


Backyard Herbals originated as a result of the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic. While spending a significant amount of time at home, I was able to re-establish a relationship with all of the lovely flowers and herbs growing in my backyard. With the increased need to wash my hands, I found my skin feeling itchy and dry from the chemicals that are often found in commercial soap. Wanting a softer, more natural feel, I decided to start making my own soap. Mine and my family's skin felt the difference immediately. Friends who tried my soap encouraged me to start selling my products so others could experience the benefits as well. goat milk, shea butter, coconut oil, and glycerin are the main bases we use. Our products are infused with therapeutic grade essential oils like lavender, rose, mint, frankincense, sweet orange, lemongrass, lime, eucalyptus, and tea tree. Essential oils are well known for their amazing scents and multitude of healing properties.

In June of 2021, we temporarily closed our website because we moved to Maine. Thanks to the encouragement and requests from many of our clients, we have reopened our online store. The past couple of months allowed us an opportunity to create new formulations with a slightly new look and feel.
