About

Welcome!  I am Molly Elmore, the owner & lead formulator at Kalmia Botanicals (a sister brand to Ridgeway Soapworks).
 *
At Kalmia Botanicals, we create plant-based skincare products that are formulated to nourish the face and body.  Our products include serums, moisturizers, cleansers & cosmetics.
 *
Kalmia is part of the latin name of mountain laurel (full latin name is kalmia latifolia).  The gorgeous flower of the laurel tree is a source of inspiration for my botanical based formulations. Fortunately, mountain laurel loves the north Georgia mountains so I am fortunate to enjoy the blooms through most of May.

This blog is more than a place to talk about our products.  I want to share ideas on how to make your life richer, more balanced and fulfilling.  Juggling a career, family, travel, exercise and time for self-care can be tough.  The Kalmia Tribe is a group of people interested in figuring out how to do that in a less stressful & enjoyable way.  I want to take time to smell the roses, have fun with my family & friends and build a company I can be proud of.
