As a sports massage therapist, I had an opportunity to witness the world of prevention and rehabilitation. My journey with Roots Essential began when I customized a bath soak for a few local athletes who were going through difficult rehabilitations. While bath soaks are known to help relax muscles and loosen stiff joints, they are also great for physical and rehabilitation therapy. First, I gave them these soaks as a gift, hoping they would provide some relief and recovery. And they did! They raved about my soaks and then asked for more, and the rest is history: Recovery Bath Soak was born. Roots Essential is women owned and locally operated in Plymouth, MN, and our mission is to promote natural healing through the use of clean and pure ingredients in our products.

Message from the Founder - Evangeline Stacy
A rehabilitation and body worker, a wellness and empowerment advocator, a visionary and creator of new products and worlds, driven by relationships grounded in community.
My passion for people, food and nature has convinced me that when properly balanced these all work together within our body to promote wellness. I was born in the Philippines where we practice "bayanihan" - a principle of community service which for me just means "I got your back". Growing up in Manila I was surrounded by whole foods and local practices, but I am not a stranger to rural life. My Grandma's farm was my childhood paradise and where my love for gardening was born. From this world grew my calling to serve people.
It is from this background and founded upon my beliefs that I commit to bring you the Roots Essential line of products. Thank you for your support and for helping us grow.
