After you read more about Irene and her handmade soaps, lotions, and perfumes in the Q&A below, be sure to complete the early entries!

Tell us a little bit about your business?
I have a handmade, artisan soap business called Ginger’s Garden. Ginger is my middle name and I love flowers and gardens.

I also make bath and body care such as lotions, scrubs, body powder, lotion bars, men’s shaving needs, fun bath jellies for kids, balms, fragranced body sprays and hand sculpted glycerin soap flowers. I love to create. This is my way of being creative and productive.


What inspired you to become an entrepreneur?
My mother and grandmother made soaps, elixirs and balms when I was little. It has rubbed off on me, no pun intended.

I started making soaps in 1969. I have always enjoyed working with and helping people. Street Fairs and markets was where I met a lot of my customers. I work hard, but I get to choose my own hours and create products that people enjoy buying and using.


What makes your products unique? 
My products use the best ingredients that I source from all over. I also support the local economy whenever possible. My recipes are unique and have been proven a success. A lot of testing goes into each product that I make. Ginger’s Garden products offer a more natural alternative to what one can buy in a grocery store. Ingredients that I use are better for you and better for your skin. They are also more environmentally friendly.

What advice would you give women about feeling pretty?
It’s important to feel good on the inside, so you can feel pretty on the outside. Take care of yourself. Be good to yourself. Everyone deserves to be pampered. Take some time out and take a nice bath. Use a quality handmade soap as it’s better for your skin. It will thank you for it.
