Lorna Henley, Medicine Wheels Herbals

Back in the 80ís with 4 children and up to seven foster children at any given time, I wanted to be self-sufficient.  I raised our meat, grew vegetables, canned, fermented, and brewed. I started making cold process soap during that time, making the yearís soap supply on a summer day.

Katherine Chiu, is a Maine native who lives and works in the mid-coast area.  Educated in science and art, I landed a career in banking and computers, which has consumed my time for almost three decades.

Using hand-made soaps and lotions lets us control exactly what we put on our skin, without harsh, unnatural chemicals and their unwanted side effects.  I formulate and manufacture soap, lotions, scrubs, bath bombs and other personal care products entirely from scratch, enjoying every step of the proc
