About Us


As a sports massage therapist, I had an opportunity to witness the world of prevention and rehabilitation. Roots Essential started when I customized a Bath Soak for few local athletes that's going through a difficult rehab. While Bath Soaks are known to help relax muscles and loosen stiff joints, it is also great for physical and rehabilitation therapy. At first, this is given as a gifting hoping it will make a difference for them. And it did! They raved for more, and the rest is history, Recovery Bath Soak was born! Handmade in small batches, our mission is to bring natural healing in our body through clean products. Roots Essential is women owned and locally operated in Wayzata, MN


Let's be honest, eliminating plastic is unrealistic, but reduction of it's usage is absolutely possible! Our products as well as our packaging are mindfully designed for simplified living. From our famous 3 in 1 Everything Soap to our Face and Body Cleanser Bar + Mesh Scrub, sustainability is our highest priority. In addition, our rich, plant-based products are formulated "free" from Animal Cruelty, Artificial Color, Formaldehyde, Parabens, Petroluem, Synthetic Fragrances, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and GMO.
