Mother Daughter Team
Lynn is an artisan soap maker, lay herbalist and gardener, Reiki master and teacher, wife and mother of two. Since childhood, she has had a passion for plants, animals and gardening, nurtured by her mother who shared her wisdom and passion for all things natural.
Several years ago, health challenges including allergies and migraines prompted Lynn to seek out safer, less toxic alternatives to commercial body care and cleaning supplies. It wasn’t always easy to find pure, natural alternatives, but her reverence for folk herbalism and love of plants were key to finding solutions.
Long story short, she adopted the motto, “If you want to get something done well, do it yourself.” Making laundry soap and soap bars for herself and her family was the goal initially, but eventually friends and other family members started asking for some, and they told a few friends and so on … You know how it goes! In 2007, after over a year of planning and much experimentation to get things “just right”, Lynn took the plunge and created Earth Elementals Soap.
It truly is a family affair here, and we can’t forget the guys! Troy (Lynn’s husband) can be found every Saturday at the Halifax Seaport Farmers’ Market manning our booth and acts as soap studio engineer designing, troubleshooting and making anything from soap molds to cutters. Son, Mitchell, whose day job is chef, pitches in with soap and body care “prep” whenever we need a helping hand. Both guys come in handy and are appreciated when a shipment of those heavy drums of organic oils need to be placed in our studio.
