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

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.
Have you ever thought about what happens to that bar of soap in your hotel room you only used once? Shawn Seipler did while visiting Minneapolis in 2008. "I called the front desk and asked," he says. "They
said they threw it away."That's when the idea for recycling soap came to him.
Pointing to World Health Organization statistics on childhood mortality, which lists diarrhea among the leading causes of death for children under 5, Seipler argues proper hygiene using soap could help save lives. "Next thing you know, me and the Puerto Rican half of the family were sitting on upside-down pickle buckets in a garage in Orlando with vegetable peelers, cooking soap," he says.
Seipler's charity, Clean the World, was born.
