Hi there, friend! I'm Angela Palmer, your instructor and founder of Farm Girl Soap Co.

I'm an esthetician (skin care expert) and educator, specializing in holistic and handcrafted skin care. Since 2001, I've taught thousands of people just like you, to handcraft their own soap and natural beauty products.

My job is to help you feel confident crafting naturally-based skin care products from scratch. I'll bust down the intimidation factors and get you creating your own farm-fresh, amazing products within just minutes.

Your DIY natural products are beautiful and effective too! Once you've crafted your own soap (or lotion, facial or bath products) you'll never want to go back to mass-produced products again.

Besides teaching and crafting specialty soap and beauty products, I love hanging out with my hubby and three kids on our little farmstead. When I'm not making soap or milking goats, you'll find me on the back of my feisty sorrel horse.
