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!
Rules of Purchase- USE my products! They aren't just to sit on the vanity for pretty! During a hectic day these little luxuries will bring moments of comfort and bliss, allowing you to re-center.
