Emmie Moe’s

While we at Bubbles and Books love all of our vendors, we admit to having a special place in our hearts for Emmie Moe’s, makers of the famed moisture melts, as well as other favorites, like the spring shower steamers, and the glorious whipped lotions and soaps!

We love the pride and care our handmade sellers put into their products, ensuring that each item that ends up in your box has been carefully cultivated to ensure you have the best possible experience. We want you to get to know our beloved makers, so you can be as inspired by their work as we are!

First things first, what kind of books do you like? 

I like to read just about anything but it really depends on my mood.  My guilty pleasure is paranormal romance.

What inspired you to start Emmie Moe’s? 

We moved from the suburbs to a more rural setting and my daughter and I wanted to start a business doing something that would be fun and where we could eventually use things we grow in the products (lavender, rose petals, lemon balm etc.) 

What product are you the most proud of? 

I would say I’m equally proud of our cold process soap and our moisture melts.

Have you had any terrible first attempts at creating a product that ended up being great in the long run? 

Moisture melts were actually born from the failings of bath bombs.  I had made bath bombs that would just not stay together so I added some moisturizing oils and butters in the hopes of salvaging the bath bombs into a new, more moisturizing product. 

What are your favorite scent combinations? 

Lavender is my absolute favorite and I love pairing it with citrus scents like lemon or grapefruit.

Are there any special tips about using your products that we should know?

No special tips….simple and enjoyable is definitely the goal. We are always looking for suggestions and ways to improve our products or get new ideas so never hesitate to reach out.  

Are there any products still in the development stage that we can look forward to? 

Yes, we’re working to perfect a couple of different new products that we are hoping will be coming in a future box.
