I grew up at a farm and living in the countryside gave me endless opportunities to learn about nature and put many of my ideas into practice using creativity and what I could find outside. Already by the age of nine I was busy making my own cosmetics using natural ingredients, such as peppermint oil to make lip balm or rose petals to make perfume. To this day I remember the excitement of trying out different recipes and holding the finished product in my hand. I was so proud of my creations ❤️.
Since I was a child, I have always enjoyed making things by hand and later studied to become an artisan seamstress, while also completing a degree in social services and art therapy. I’m forever curious about the world and always willing to try something new. Over the years I have tried many things and worked as a cleaner, painter, salesperson... you name it!
“I’m forever curious about the world and always willing to try something new.”
From a young age I dreamt of becoming an entrepreneur, I just could not decide on the type of business I wanted to develop… well, not until the day when I was asked to run a course about soap making! Truth be told, I had never tried making soap, but me being me, I said “let’s do this” and set out to teach myself everything there is to know about homemade soap.
After a huge amount of research on the topic, I started experimenting with soap making at home. I got completely hooked! I collected ideas and ingredients from nature and eventually created a collection of soaps inspired by the distinctive seasonal variations in Finland. The soaps turned out to be magnificent and I soon noticed that many of my skin ailments were beginning to heal. This was my lightbulb moment: my gorgeous natural soaps and their many benefits were something I wanted to make available to everyone. It was time to act and start my own business.
“Working in my own company and doing what I love has been like a dream come true.”
In autumn 2011 I took the big step of establishing Onnenpussi, my very own natural soap business. I also created the first batch of my famous salt soap, a near-miraculous product that later became the cornerstone of my business. Onnenpussi’s salt soap has since helped thousands of people (myself included) with their skin conditions, such as eczema, acne, psoriasis and dry skin. I am overjoyed that my soap is giving relief to so many people and I treasure the feedback I get from customers.
Working in my own company and doing what I love has been like a dream come true. One decade later I still wake up every day feeling motivated and committed to bring you the finest, skin-loving natural cosmetics around. I am so happy that you, too, have found Onnenpussi soaps and have chosen to support a small, independent business.
Thank you for being on this journey with me ❤️.
