Aunt Dee’s is a locally owned small business making handcrafted bath and body products from scratch and in small batches.
I’m Aunt Dee and I LOVE homemade soaps. I like the fact that they don’t have harmful chemicals added and have natural glycerin left in the product, unlike store bought detergent bars. I was having a hard time finding what I wanted locally so I set out researching to make my own. I didn’t want a quick melt & pour soap from a base, being able to control what goes into my soaps is very important to me. I wanted a soap that is moisturizing but has lots of bubbly/creamy lather and a great scent. It has taken me a while to find that right balance but I feel I have a great product to offer to others.
I started selling my creations in 2014 in Smithville, TN and have tweaked recipes along the way. Many customers love the products but have had allergies to certain oils or butters and some want certain types of soaps (goat milk, vegan) so I use different recipes while formulating the right balance of moisture and lather.
I have since added different product lines. I make a thick, rich body cream (absorbs quick and non-greasy), solid lotion bars, whipped body butters (with no preservatives added), facial/shaving products, beard oils & balms, lip & cuticle balms, and more.
I use therapeutic grade essential oils or high quality, phthalate free fragrance oils for scent and high quality oils and butters like avocado & sweet almond oils, shea, cocoa & mango butters and more. It may cost me more to make but I feel it makes a better finished product for your skin.
Although we have moved to Northern Alabama, I continue to still offer the same great quality products throughout Tennessee and Alabama in craft shows and always here online.
