Vendor Spotlight: Righteous Branch Soapworks

Righteous Branch Soapworks will have their soaps, bath bombs, home fresheners, and bug spray for sale at Backroads Market in Leavenworth, IN on May 11 & 12, 2018

Making soap is Kathy Morgan’s happy place.  “Having my own business helps me to actually relax sometimes,” she says. “I work full time and then come home to make my product, which is a lot of fun.”

Righteous Branch offers more than soap, though.  They also offer bug spray, room/air fresheners, bath & shower bombs, dog shampoo, charcoal soaps, Tea Tree cream, and menthol rub.   Kathy is also hoping to have her new sugar scrubs ready in time for the Market.

Yeah yeah.

She tells us, “We fell in love with homemade soap while on vacations.”  Soap stores seemed to draw Kathy in wherever she went, and her vacation souvenirs almost always turned out to be bath soap.  Having fallen in love with the natural products and the way they made her skin feel, Kathy and her husband ventured into the soapmaking business in 2015.

The name of their business comes from Jeremiah 23:5 “Behold, the days are coming,” declares the Lord, “When I will raise up for David a Righteous Branch; And He will reign as King and act wisely And do justice and righteousness in the land.”

Righteous Branch’s best-selling soap is the Oatmeal, Milk and Honey.  “It’s great for sensitive skin, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis,” Kathy tells us, “and it is really good for baby eczema.”  Her best-selling bath bomb scent is Apple Sage, but you’ll have more scents to choose from at the Market.

Of past events Kathy says, “I have actually tried to set up at one event where the rain was so bad that I was standing ankle deep in what felt like a river.”  She and her husband finally gave in and waited till the next day to set up. “It was wet ground but at least it wasn’t pouring on us.”

So do your sun dance, my friends. That way, we won’t be standing in the river on Market Day, May 11 & 12.

If it does rain, we’re totally blaming you.

You can follow Righteous Branch on Facebook, but if you want to smell that Apple Sage, you have to come to Market.

Bring the sunshine.

See you there!
