its a journey


My name is Lori Bartel and I am the soapmaker behind Loves Field. All our soap is made by hand, using the cold process soap method. Handmade on our farm in Loves Field, a sweet little community in the Smoky Mountains.

My soapmaking journey began after crossing paths with a local herbal soapmaker in 1998. She handed me a bar of her handmade cold process Rose Geranium soap, with a promise that her natural soap would heal my eczema. It did that and more. It opened up a whole new world of natural healing with herbs and essential oils for me and my family.

What followed was a storm of studying everything I could get my hands on, about soapmaking and natural skin care. Eventually I began growing my own organic herbs and making natural salves and balms for family and friends. After years of making it as a hobby the demand grew and so did my love for this kind of work, so I finally opened up a proper online business in 2014.

This is where we found our roots and planted our hearts, we are glad you're here...
