I have had a love of body care and fragrances since I was young so it only seemed fitting to put my love into creating high-quality, handmade products made in small-batches for everyone to enjoy.
I am an animal lover and found it very important to make products that are not only cruelty-free and not tested on animals, but also vegan so you'll find no beeswax, goat's milk or any other animal products here! I have donated surplus products to be used in past fundraisers to AARTA: Akita Advocates Relocation Team Arizona. This is a great rescue where I adopted my dog, A'kiza, from!
With your help, I have been able to donate money and/or surplus products to other local organizations whose mission I care about. Some of those include:
+ The Sojourner Center and the Arizona Coalition to End Sexual & Domestic Violence, both of which help to combat domestic and sexual violence here in Arizona.
+ The Navajo Water Project, part of the Dig Deep Water non-profit. 40% of the Navajo Nation here in Arizona don't have running water and our donation helps bring water and electricity to their homes.
+ The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Arizona, who help with issues including freedom of speech and press (including ensuring the rights of protesters), voting rights, equal protection, immigrants’ rights, LGBTQ+ rights and more.
+ The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) of Arizona, whose mission is to stop the defamation of the Jewish people and to secure justice and fair treatment for all.
+ One•n•ten, who serve Arizona's LGBTQ youth and young adults by providing empowering social and service programs to enhance their lives.
After rigorous testing, Soak + Unwind had its first opening on New Years Day, 2017 and I love to celebrate this day every year as a thank you to our customers for supporting my small business!
I’m a firm believer in self care and don’t think we partake enough, so please come and treat yo’ self!
