Our Story

BOOTH UW2018
Purple Martin Naturals is operated by a small family team of artists, farmers, dreamers and doers. We have been growing organic crops since 2015 and began using local oils to make soap in 2016. Our focus is on formulating quality handmade luxuries using local, natural ingredients that nurture you while respecting the environment. We responsibly harvest wild botanicals from our country property and lovingly blend them into our unique products. We source ingredients as locally as possible and limit our use of tropical oils that have taken trans-oceanic voyages. Taking this unusual path required a great deal of research into the qualities of available local oils, some of which aren't terribly common in soapkmaking. Through this process we've discovered an abundance of nourishing, skin-loving ingredients right at our doorsteps.
We also handcraft bath accessories from reclaimed materials to complement our natural handmade soaps. We prefer to reuse and repurpose, and we are frequent visitors to local thrift shops and garage sales! If you visit us at a local market, you'll see plenty of repurposed materials in our displays: from pallets to barnboard to vintage bottles and bread tins.
