My first encounter with Paula’s handmade products was when my husband and I stayed at the beautiful Shaker Road Farm Airbnb, a recently remodeled 1790’s tavern with plenty of the old charm left for the tired city travelers to enjoy and relax in.

On the freshly made bed was a complimentary bottle of Paula’s Wild Lavender scented mist just in case you needed a little extra help relaxing. Of course we used it. It smelled too good not to and plus our little one always needs a little bit of coercing, and whatever other tactics, to get him to go to bed. I found out later, when I went searching for some locally made New England goodies, for our family in Florida, that Paula’s products can be found all over town, at little shops or even the Loudon Station (that’s where you go to get your mail during winter storms).

Her beautifully and rustically wrapped Goat Milk Soaps got my attention and I made sure to grab a couple of her Macintosh Apple soaps as well as her healing salve lotion, since the lady at the counter was raving about how good it is.

And since it’s such a small world up here I was eventually introduced to sweet Paula, the maker behind all of these products I have been buying and enjoying. She kindly invited me to watch how she makes her soap. I was very exited to start up the New England version of my Local Phocus project that I had started not long before making the big move to the beautiful North East, so I jumped at the opportunity.



This is Paula, the maker behind Paula's Pure Life Products

When I asked Paula what made her start this adventure, she passionately explained that her and her husband used to have horribly dry skin during the winter months and she started to look into natural effective ways to relieve their itchy dry skin. During her research she discovered the moisturizing power of goat milk soaps, and since her close friend and not so far neighbor had goats and plenty of extra goat milk she decided to actually learn how to make the soap herself.

Some of the local places where Paula's products can be found are the Loudon Station or the Local shop in Pittsfield, a cute little store that recently opened and sells only New England made goodies. Gotta love this new movement towards local hand made goods that I see popping everywhere. Or just check out her website at  www.paulaspurelifeproducts.com
