Meet Our Founder

My name is Naomi Murray, it's nice to meet you! My start down the path of natural skin care began with an unlikely source. In 2007, while helping butcher a steer I found a way to make use of the beef tallow by taking up soap making. Soon after that I switched to making soap with vegetable oils and found that my passion for plants was influencing my handmade apothecary creations. Batch upon batch was inspired by locally harvested plants - Wild Rose, Western Juniper, Douglas Fir - all fed my vision for new creations.

In 2009 I founded Mountain Girl Soap to support others on their journey to better skin with natural soap and skin care made with native botanicals sourced in Northern California. I'm an active member of the Handcrafted Soap and Cosmetic Guild (HSCG) where I earned a certificate in Master Soap Making. I hold certificates in Aromatherapy and Botanical Body Care Product Formulation and I am also a member of the California Native Plant Society. My cornerstone product is my bar soap, which has changed the lives of many. If you need help deciding I invite you to take a look at the testimonials. Mountain Girl Soap offers sample size bars with free shipping.

In the meantime, I hope you'll kick up your feet, grab a mug of your favorite beverage and dive into some of my blog posts. Remember to sign up for my newsletter to stay up to date with the latest news and  exclusive reader-only offers. 

Thank you for following me on this journey, I hope you experience the healthiest and happiest skin with the best nature has to offer.
