Renee Selby knew that her family's drastic times called for only one thing: drastic measures. Her daughter suffered from severe asthma to the point where she had to stop going to school. So after homeschooling her daughter for an entire year, Selby found studies that showed a correlation between asthma and the chemicals in a person's environment.

 

As drastic measures were in order, Selby did a complete overhaul on her house. She cleared out the pantry, threw away all personal care products and dumped all of the household cleaners. Then, she restocked her house with only all-natural, chemical-free items.

 

The result? "[My daughter] was on 12 prescription meds at the time, and over about a six-month period, I had her weaned off all the meds, and she was back in school," Selby says.

 

The massive overhaul had worked, but while the all-natural products were eco-friendly, they weren't exactly economically friendly. And that's when Selby started looking into making her own all-natural soaps.

 

As she whipped up batches, she would give some away, and "everyone just kept wanting more," she says. So what started as a way to save her family money has now exploded into a full-scale online boutique of all-natural soaps and bath products called Miss Selby's Soap.

"Natural soaps can be just so boring, and I wanted them to be fun," Selby says, so she keeps things interesting with several scents. Some of the more popular soaps include Goat's Milk, Oats & Honey; French Lavender; Herbal Feel Good; and Fruit Smoothie. And now, you can take advantage of these chemical-free, all-natural soaps and bath bombs via her online store.

 

At just five bucks a bar for most soaps (and $2.50 for the rest), Miss Selby's Soap can fit nicely into your bathroom and your budget. And for $3 per bath bomb, you can have some fizzy fun too. Even your pup can like the lather with the special Miss Selby's Pet Shampoo bar.
