I created the Inspire body care line in 2007 out of the need to find skincare products for our children that were free from harsh chemicals, and nourishing for the body. My original line was called Green Pad Living, and it consisted of bulk soaps, body butters, sugar scrubs, and bath salts. As fate would have it, being in the right place at the right time one afternoon at a farmer's market in front of Whole Foods Market, my line was picked up and featured at the launch of their Local Vendor Program in 2009.  From that point on, the line grew so quickly that I was practically in overwhelm, which lead to my closing the line temporarily in 2013 so that I could regroup, recharge, and figure out how I was going to move forward next in a way that was all inclusive and supportive of my lifestyle. I wanted to shape my business around my life, and not my life around my business. 


Today, 100,000 soap bars later, I've re-launched my line and branded it with its new name, Inspire Pure Botanicals, and I believe it's better than ever! Through many years of experience and some very challenging times, I've not only learned a TON about business, organic living, and people, but I've grown to understand that my spirit instinctually knows what it needs in order to feel in alignment and loved at all times. This vibration of wholeness is what the inspire line carries with it in each bar, still produced by hand, as close to nature as possible, supporting work for people of ALL unique abilities.

Inspire Pure Botanical Products are sold exclusively at Whole Foods Market, Mid-Atlantic Region

Pure Ingredients: Cold Process Soaps (pictured above!)

Each bar of Inspire Pure Botanicals Cold Process soaps are made with pure Olive Oil and Coconut Oil, distilled water, Food Grade sodium hydroxide (lye), and pure essential oils. During the saponification process, the lye molecules are converted with the oils, and the end result is a firm bar of soap.  The longer your soap sits out, the more it will cure, and become more and more mild over time. This allows for a luxurious washing experience, one that will leave your skin feeling hydrated and moisturized. We suggest keeping your soap as dry as possible in between uses, as it contains no palm oil, a hardening agent....(and a rainforest nightmare!). 

Essential Oils & Herbs

All of our soaps are made with therapeutic grade essential oils. For those with sensitive skin, it is advised that you stick with our pure Olive Oil bar that is unscented, or something lighter such as Lavender. We do not recommend using bar soap on the face, as the pH of your facial skin is typically much more sensitive than other areas of your body. All of the herbs we use in our soaps are locally harvested and biodynamically grown!
