About Humor & Grace
I started Humor & Grace in October of 2015. At the time, I was not feeling fulfilled by my job and I needed a creative outlet. I have always loved spa treatments and products - pedicures, massages, beautiful smelling lotions and potions - and that's how Humor & Grace was born. I called my company "Humor & Grace" because life is sometimes messy, and you really do need a little humor and a little grace to get through it.
This business is very rewarding - making these products allows me to share my passion for pampering with others, and often times provide favors or gifts for special occasions and events.
About Our Products
Everything at Humor & Grace is all-natural, small-batch, and handmade by me in my kitchen. No preservatives, chemicals, alcohol, parabens or "methyl-ethyl-death" goes into my spa products. All raw materials and ingredients are sourced from responsible, high-quality suppliers and I put each finished product through a rigorous quality inspection.
I want each and every singe customer to be completely satisfied. I want you to feel good about where your product is coming from, how it is made, and how it will make you feel.
Some of the raw materials I use are listed here with their sources:
White & Brown Sugar - I only use Imperial Sugar, from Sugar Land, TX (my hometown!)
Honey - raw, unfiltered. from a local Texas beekeeper
Lemon Juice - fresh squeezed by hand - yes, it's time intensive, but it's worth it!
Lemon Peel -peeled fresh from lemons by me - again, time intensive, but I insist on using fresh lemon peel for the quality and color. Dried just doesn't compare!
Labels - all of my labels are on 100% recycled white paper
We want you to feel good about your choice to purchase from a small business that cares about the environment and the health of its customers.
About the Owner, Lauren
I currently live in Plano, TX with my amazing husband Will and our sweet calico cat, Lyla.
After graduating from Texas Tech University - where I met my husband - with a bachelors and masters in Environmental Engineering, I moved to Oklahoma City where I worked in the oil and gas industry for two years.
In June of 2015, I moved to Dallas to live with my husband (we had been in a long-distance relationship for four years) and took the job that inspired me to create Humor & Grace. I have since left that job, and now work full-time as a Health, Safety, Environment, and Security (HSE&S) Manager for a botanical ingredient manufacturer.
My passions, when I'm not working or whipping up a batch of sugar scrubs, include cooking, gardening, reading, and entertaining family and friends.
