Thanks for stopping by! Athena's Choice Naturals is located in beautiful Salt Lake City, Utah, at the base of the Wasatch Mountains. All our products are currently formulated, created, tested, and then produced in our home, here in the Valley. I hope you find them as soothing to your skin and as luxurious to use everyday as we do. The idea to make our own natural soap at home came about after my second child, Athena, was born. My son, Dakota, suffered from numerous allergies as an infant and into his early childhood, including allergies to all types of perfumes and artificial fragrances. Finding skin products that lacked the fragrances that irritated his asthma was a real challenge. I didn't want to take the risk that Athena might be as adversely affected by the chemicals and fragrances found in seemingly every product for skin care on the market, so I decided to make her soaps and lotions myself. These handmade products were so nice, my whole family began using them. Friends and relatives who visited tried our chunky bars of soap and ask for some of their own... Thus, Athena's Choice was born. Since that early start, I've experimented with various essential oil combinations for fragrance and aromatherapy, and added to the list of items I make here at home. We've come a long way since that first batch of hand stirred soap in a pot on the stove, but still produce every batch in the same careful, home made way.
