Drum roll please!!

I am so very excited and pleased to announce the artist who has
taken over the True Vine formulations.

I was actually able to meet this great mama in REAL life and I can
fully believe she is as committed to natural and herbs as I am.

Natalie has made letting go of the control of True Vine SO easy on me
and I have FULL confidence in her abilities AND her commitment to customer service.

Beyond that,her professionalism speaks in her packaging.  She’s done a beautiful job with her new labels and I am just loving her branding.

I really think she has what it takes to succeed and more than that, she’s a REAL mom who is committed to mamas and children…. Not just “faking” for a great marketing gimmick.  She’s the real deal and I just can’t say enough how happy I am at how all of this turned out.

The Avocado and Calendula soap?  It’s stocked!

What a great Mama’s Day treat for yourself or someone you love.

I am so grateful to all of my VERY loyal True Vine customers and I can’t tell you what a blessing you all were to me.  Natalie has made parting with the business very lovely and sweet and a true relief rather than a burden. 

So with great joy I am announcing Earth Muffin as my successor!
Blessings and ENJOY!

But I’m finally done formulating my baby wash!

And Andrea (WANTED Web Design) made me a lovely label for it!

I’ve been making soap for a good while, but this is our first batch from our own goats!  Made from calendula infused olive oil, shea butter, goatmilk, and more!  No synthetic fragrance oils, just lavender essential oil….

Who we are, what we’re about… In pictures.

True Vine has had a bit of an evolution from the time it was created until now.  I began soaping going on three years ago, but have been interested in herbs for far longer.  I began dabbling in 2001, when I began taking red raspberry leaf during my pregnancy with Elizabeth and it’s grown over the years.  When I began soaping, I just wanted to find an outlet for using herbs and essential oils.  I wanted to make something good, something healthy, to nurture my family.

It grew beyond my expectations and it became a bit overwhelming.  We had many choices to make…  To see how successful it could be, or to scale it back a bit to manageable proportions.

In the end we found what we truly wanted we knew all along.  True Vine, from John 15, means staying grounded in God and what He would want for us.  I see True Vine as a ministry to other families, wanted to raise their little ones with healthy products.  We’ve scaled back so that it’s success would not be at the expense of our family’s well-being. 

In the end, we’ve found that we are all happy when I am a wife and mother first and foremost.  And in my spare time, while walking WITH my children, I’m able to create a few great products, especially for mamas and little ones… Naturally.

Free of parabens, free of fragrance oils, sulfates, and striving hard to utilize organic and natural materials, we create these items for our families and for families like ours.
