Featured Vendor of the Week - Evelyn Rose Products

Heather, creator of Evelyn Rose Products  This week's featured vendor, Evelyn Rose Products will be enjoying its 4th summer at the Dallas Farmer’s Market.  Evelyn Rose Products was founded by Heather Drake out of desperation when she realized that her little girl, Evie, suffered from terrible eczema.  The products at the store only seemed to aggravate Evie’s condition.  So Heather decided to learn how to make soap so she could treat the eczema.  After friends and family saw how well little Evie’s skin responded, a small business was born.

  All of Evelyn Rose Products are 100% natural and made from scratch.  Heather makes everything out of her kitchen in the Paulding County side of Douglasville.  In keeping with the local food/merchant movement, she uses as many local ingredients (raw goat’s milk, raw honey from Bill’s Bee Farm, unrefined beeswax, and heavy whipping cow’s cream) as possible, grows some of her own herbs.  She also uses only natural essential oils, mineral pigments, and clays in her products so you can feel safe using them on your entire family.  She also says if there is something she doesn’t make, feel free to ask if she can make it for you since she also does special orders.

  Heather will be taking her maternity leave this July, but says the market managers, Michael and Eddie, will keep a small selection of her soaps on hand.  She also said if you need something besides the soaps, please email her (evelynroseproducts@gmail.com), and she will be happy to work out a way to get these to you.

Since Heather changes the products and soap scents seasonally, there is always something new at the Evelyn Rose tent.  She says feel free to stop by and sample her offerings. Also visit her website: http://www.evelynroseproducts.com/
