Meet The Maker:

Hi, I’m Tina Ames, founder, formulator, and owner behind the scenes here. It all started back in 2013 when I began reading all the not-so-safe ingredients on personal skincare labels and decided I wanted something better. I, being “blessed” with sensitive skin, read about the benefits of using natural soap and thought I’d try my hand at making it from scratch. After much research (and lots of trial & error), I began creating soap my skin actually LOVED! 

I fell in love with the process of making soap then ventured out and began experimenting and formulating other bath & body products. This soon became a way to share my passion with others, by gifting family & friends. Soon after, I realized I wanted to turn this same passion of creating and encouraging others into a business. I found small business resources in my community and took any small business class I could find, still continuing to formulate, create & test products all while working a full-time job! As a mom of three it was a big leap of faith for me to leave my job of 16 years to start a business, but that’s exactly what I did.

Over the years, I’m so very grateful Sweet Home continues to grow and yet my focus stays the same: to create gentle skincare made with ethically sourced ingredients and eco-friendly packaging in small batches to inspire sweet moments of self-care AND beautiful enough to gift & encourage others to do the same!
