Thistle in Thyme, located in the quintessential New England village town of Fitzwilliam, is a local New Hampshire-based business specializing in natural bath and body products for the entire family.
Owner Tammy Pelland found that being surrounded by simple living had given her the passion to create what she thinks is the perfect match to her lifestyle; creating all-natural goats milk soaps and bath products the old fashion way with a whimsical approach to unique scents. Each scent is uniquely named by what it evokes.
Thistle in Thyme's nourishing goats milk handmade soaps, Aloe Vera hand & body lotions, body butters, exfoliating sugar scrubs, and all natural deodorants are all made in small batches and are hand poured, wrapped, and labeled. Their products contain generous amounts of rich butters, oils, and natural ingredients to soften and nourish your skin.
Tammy uses the method of soap making called “hot-processed” and “cold-processed” to make her soap. All of her soap is also shown in their natural beauty with no added colorant. Thistle in Thyme's products are scented with a mix of essential and fragrance oils with exceptions of our non-fragrance and deodorant line, which use essential oils. For texture and color, They only use natural clay, herbs, mineral pigments, and mica for texture and color.
And if you've ever wondered if there are any "best practices" to care for homemade soaps, here are some tips from Tammy:
- Don't let your soap sit in water.
- Allow your soap to dry between uses.
- Store your soap on a well drained soap dish.
- Use a natural wash cloth or loofah to extend its life.
- Store unused soap in a dark cool place like a lingerie drawer or linen closet.
