Katherine Barnette is the owner of Southern Fields Soap Company. She will be setting up shop at Hippie Fest in Myrtle Beach, SC on Saturday October 28th to showcase her handcrafted organic + vegan soaps, bath scrubs and bath salts. Below are some words from Katherine :)
"Growing up on a farm, I loved nothing more than being outside, running around the fields, and picking wildflowers. I loved their scent, the colors and the textures. I found my inspiration in those southern fields and our Southern Fields story began. As I sat in the field by our pond inhaling the scent of pine on the breeze, I thought why can’t I put this into a bar? I took my sketchbook out and started making a list of all of my favorite scents around the farm: lavender, pine, peppermint, rosemary.
Soon after I began crafting small batches of soap only using organic materials: safflower oil, sunflower oil, sustainably sourced palm oil, and added in herbs, plants and essential oils. It wasn’t long before the kitchen was full of delightful scents and bars of soap, scrubs and bath soaks. I handcraft our products in small batches to ensure purity using only the finest, 100% natural organic ingredients many of them sourced in the Carolinas. The ingredients are carefully chosen from southern fields & their farmers to create an eco-friendly product that is safe for both us and the environment.
Simple ingredients, simple products, simple body care. Just the way we like it!" -Katherine
