Hi! I’m Winetta. My husband, Adams, and I started Oloo Farms in December 2013. Adams loves farming and as a result, we found ourselves with an overabundance of herbs from the garden. At that same time, I found myself experiencing very dry skin. Nothing I tried seemed to help. We did some examining of our bath products and realized there just had to be a better alternative. So, armed with the knowledge of what would be best for our skin and loads of organic herbs, we made our first batch of soap. My dry skin began to improve immediately. Friends took notice and started asking us to make soap for them. And just like that, Oloo Farms was born. Since then we’ve done a lot more researching (A LOT!) and a lot more sourcing of natural ingredients but our mission has remained the same from the beginning. That is, to make products with natural ingredients that are nourishing and loving to the skin. Natural farming and natural ingredients for a natural you.
Over the years we have expanded our product line beyond soaps to include supple moisturizers in the form of lotion bars, lip balms, and, most recently, whipped body butters. We make bath bombs that are formulated for ultra relaxation and shower steamers loaded with essential oils to combat congestion and more. We also offer accessories, e.g. loofahs that are home-grown on our property with no chemicals. You won’t believe the difference between ours and the typical store-bought loofah. Other accessories include teak wood soap decks that are specially designed to extend the life of your soaps and hand-carved wooden gift boxes.
Adams and I are proud to be the owners of a small business that has built a reputation for providing high-quality products and survived the Covid-19 pandemic. Our team of two could not have done it without the support of you all – our customers. We are forever grateful and can’t wait to show you what’s in store next! You can sign up for our newsletter to be kept up to date on what’s happening with our store and products here.

Why Shop with Us
Each and every product on our website is made by us (or Mother Nature in the case of pumice stones 😊). We carefully select natural, food-grade, and organic ingredients from reputable companies and our own farm, we mix and pour all of the soaps, we shape every bath bomb, whip all of the body butters, etc. This means that each item receives individual attention and that all of the ingredients are known and sustainably sourced. No secrets, no compromises. As you check out our website, you’ll find some of our scented items use fragrance oils versus essential oils. This is done to offer a broader range of scents to everyone who shops with us. In those instances, the items smell great but the fragrance is only 0.01% to 0.03% of the whole and deliberately chosen from the most trusted companies in the business. You can shop for yourself and your loved ones with confidence.
