We are so glad you are here!

Our passion is to help you make your home a place of peace and wellness!

Cate and Nancy created their own cleaning products for their personal use and have loved them so much that they have decided to share these carefully designed and all natural products with you as well.

Their passion for wellness urges them to offer only 100% all natural, therapeutic grade ingredients in their products in place of the toxic and harmful chemicals that are in practically every house cleaning product on the shelves these days.

Homemade stories to go along with our homemade soaps…

Nancy homeschooled Cate along with her four sisters. Spending most of their days around the house, they have experienced the wonderful things that a homemade life can offer. 

Homemade soaps, creams and special cold and flu remedies from essential oils

Sour-dough bread made from a wild yeast starter

Sweet honey from the backyard along with fresh eggs

Merry laughter around a table of good and nourishing food that made the whole family thrive

You don’t have to be home all day or keep chickens in your backyard to experience some of the good things a homemade can offer.

We’ll share with you our own simple recipes and natural home remedies.

Join our circle so we can share these things with you and also send you our special giveaways/discounts!

There is something so wonderful about working with your hands and accomplishing tasks that require a little extra thought and heart that make those things that much more meaningful and something we can all be 100% comfortable with. It is a very blessed thing to know every single material or ingredient that goes into a product before you bring it into your home!  

We love home life. What makes a home is more than just your beautiful decor. It is the love and the relationships that exist in it. It is the healing that happens there.

Let us tell you a little about ourselves!

Hello, I’m Nancy and I love to make beautiful things! I’m happiest when I’m in my workshop making homemade natural soap or another project for Iris + Hart. There are other things that make me happy as well. One is my husband of 35 years, Hart, my five wonderful daughters and their hubbies. And last but not least my sweet grandchildren. Life is full but good. God has blessed me so much.

Hi there! My name is Catharine.  Almost everyone calls me Cate.

I am a believer in Jesus Christ. He is the reason I have so much joy! I am a wife to a wonderful soldier, Gabriel and although we’ve only been married three years- I feel like we have a decade of adventures to tell. I am a mom to two children, Ayelee Sarah and Benjamin George. Ben Ben was born just this year. He was ten days old when his daddy had to leave for Afghanistan. We give him all of the extra cuddles that we can!

I really enjoy taking photographs. My major was in photojournalism. I’ll be sharing lots of photos with you as you read along this journey of ours.

Please feel free to get in touch with us! We would love to hear from you!
