How iT ALL Started

Aconcoction is a homegrown bath and beauty dream started in 2013 by Karen Ashford Wilson in the small community of McMinnville, Tennessee.    

It started with a blissful weekend grew from there.....
I needed a get-away badly... very badly.  I saw an article in Southern Living aboutThe Martyn House- A beautiful glamping compound in Elijay Georgia.  My husband and I decided to give it a try and booked it for late September.  The whole weekend was so wonderful... you know that feeling when you are so relaxed you actually tingle inside?  That is what I felt! I wanted to bring that feeling back home to Tennessee with me.  A small part of the wonderful experience were the lovely soaps and sprays that were made on site.
I left the Martyn House with the bug to do something creative.  When we returned the following year for my birthday my husband arranged for me to take a soap class from owner, hippie guru JoAnn Antonelli.  I left once again rejuvenated but I didn’t have the nerve to try to make soap for myself for several years.  Soap was rather intimidating so I started with lotion and made some for my C-town girls for Christmas. They loved what I made so I began learning as much as I could about concocting my own line of bath products.  Here I am almost two years later sharing my bliss with you... 


Why do I do this?  


1. I love the creative process

2. I love making people happy with the things I create!   


I believe everyone deserves moments of bliss in their everyday lives.  People who make time to re-center will be happier and make the world a better place to be!
