Tamarack Honors Earth Day with Debut of Wild Mountain Soap


What better way to kick off Earth Day weekend than by offering a new line of all natural products from a WV company accepted into Tamarack in March?

Wild Mountain Soap Company, based in Fayetteville, creates soaps, lotions, lip balms, and even an all-natural bug spray among their line of products.

According to co-owners and husband and wife team, Phil and Mary Peelish, the idea for soaps is based upon the traditional mountain methods merging with the current trend for all-natural, made in the USA brands.

“We turned our passion for mountain living and its heritage into a kitchen-table business, and are thrilled to be able to offer hand-crafted products from our home to yours,” said Mary Peelish.

On their website Wild Mountain Soap Company explains the science and the art behind making soap without harsh chemicals and dyes. Out of both respect for the environment and to support a healthier choice for human skin, Wild Mountain Soap Company, discovered filling one niche fulfills both needs.

“We invite you to experience firsthand the benefits of our home-crated soap and beauty products, the way it should be made with all natural ingredients from the hands of artisans, who cherish the heritage of mountain living,” Peelish stated.

Products are sold at Tamarack, at various art & craft shops in southern West Virginia, and at a number of outdoor fairs and festivals. Wild Mountain Soap is available online at wildmountainsoap.com. Customers may opt for the unique Soap of the Month Club, for gifts or as a personal option.

Meet Phillip and Mary Peelish, the founders of Wild Mountain Soap Company, and sample their products at Tamarack May 10 and 11 from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m., and during the Tamarack Appalachian Music Festival sponsored by Adventures on the Gorge on May 31 from noon-8 p.m.
