Handmade Healing

Detroit-based soap company goes beyond the bar

The Little Flower Soap Company has blossomed since its sudsy start in 2010. Husband and wife duo Holly and Justin Rutt run the Detroit-based company with beautifully packaged, all-natural products including: bath salts, skin balms, lip balms, and, of course, soaps. The first time the couple made soap together was for their wedding. Now they’ve created their own unique line using essential oils, organic cocoa, and shea butter. Justin, who graduates from med school this month, utilizes his knowledge of herbs and natural health to formulate products packed with healing properties. “I love our Muscle Rescue balm the most,” Holly says. “It really works. It’s great for all kinds of different ailments.” The formula, rich in anti-inflammatory St. John’s Wort, was so popular it inspired a Skin Rescue balm, without menthol, suitable for the face. For now, the couple is concocting products in small batches in a small studio, but they hope to expand soon with the purchase of a 3- to 5-acre farm. littleflowersoap.com — Lexi Trimpe
