~APPALACHIAN INSPIRED~ HANDMADE SOAPS & CANDLES

Hello!

     I've always been rather an old soul. I dream about simpler times & living off the grid in somewhere in Alaska. Even as a child I loved being as closely tied to the outdoors as possible. I guess that's the reason I've always had an interest in homesteading. It's pretty fun creating functional, every day tools in an artsy manner. More importantly, I like knowing what's in them. Health is very important to me so I try to stay away from as much man-made, processed products as possible. & use as much earth-given, natural products instead. 

 

   My hubby (Jason), our three amazing kids, two pups, one kitty & I live in the mountains of North Georgia. We have a little shop called Sunrise Grocery, which is about two miles from Vogel State Park at the base of the mountain. My hubby is a published photographer at JMC Artistic Photography and I hand make Appalachian inspired soaps, candles & other health products. We have both our photography & soaps at Sunrise, along with other locally-made goodies like honey, jams, pottery, shirts, produce, etc. We do a good bit of traveling in the Appalachian region and share a lot through our blog/brand, Souled in Appalachia.

 

   Besides making suds, I adore hiking, kayaking, yoga, skiing when able, traveling, reading, or just sitting by a river. Jason & I are out & about exploring every chance we get, often with boots on wading in rivers or climbing rocks. We have tried to bring our love of land & the Appalachian area into all our work as much as possible, sharing the beauty of what we see so others are able to appreciate our public lands, too. It's beneficial for both people and our land when a connection is felt. Plus, geez, it's beautiful out there!

 

      As for how Sunrise Wick & Wash was born...an opportunity presented itself in 2016 when a friend who made soap for our store taught me the art of soap-making and handed me the torch. I decided to take a little bit of a different route with it to make it more personal. I wanted to create soap that had ties to Appalachia and our mountains. I make an old-fashioned, simple, yet amazing, natural lye soap that makes lots of suds. Every bar of soap & candle is made in small batches, using high quality fragrance and essential oils. I take pride in being able to send a little piece of love, creativity and Appalachia into every order that goes out. It has been so much fun these last few years and everyone has been amazingly supportive! I owe every person who has supported me a huge "THANK YOU" for such a cool opportunity!

 

Thanks again for stopping by and especially for all the support you guys have given me the last few years of starting this journey.

 

Much love!

~Jes
