Take two friends, a desire to make homemade holiday gifts, and a business that organically emerged in the process, and you’ve got Made On Acorn Hill. Ashley and Mandy started their Tennessee-based homemade body care company completely without intending to. Which is to say, the two decided to make holiday gifts together, which were met with so much enthusiasm by their recipients that demand for more resulted, which ultimately turned into an “Alright, let’s do this” situation.

Several months ago, I gave a shout-out to the company in a “What I’m Digging” round-up. I think I came across the business on Instagram, and was taken by their snappy yet simple packaging, all natural ingredients, and overall vibe. My mention was followed up by a direct email, thanking me and asking if I’d like to try some Made On Acorn Hill products out. A generous care package came in July and I’ve been enjoying their items since.

I can’t recommend their products enough. The soaps are creamy and gently fragrant, the lip balms are some of the softest I’ve ever used, the “Mama’s Kiss” first-aid salve has been my go-to balm to heal all the scrapes and scratches that toddler boys inevitably incur, and the “Breathe Easy” salve has been in regular rotation on our chests and feet since Huxley and I became sick last week, invigorating us with its menthol splendor. I also loved learning that the beeswax used in their hard lotion bars and lip balms is sourced from a Tennessee beekeeper. Way to keep small, local businesses even more local, and support other small-scale entrepreneurs in the process!

Well, small measure readers, it’s your lucky day! Not only did Ashley and Mandy make their company’s lovely products available to me, they’re going to gift them to you, too! Yay! One very fortunate small measure reader will receive a gift package containing the following items:

Breathe Easy salve
Breathe Easy soak
3 soaps (Breathe EasyRosemary’s Bloom, and Autumn)
Mama’s Kiss first aid salve
Hard lotion bar
Pep Your Step lip balm

In addition to the giveaway itself, Made On Acorn Hill is also offering a discount of 15% off all items to small measure readers. Just enter the code SM15 at checkout. The discount will conclude when the giveaway does, a week from today. Even if you don’t win the giveaway, you’re still winning a wonderful savings! Looking for loving crafted, all-natural holiday gifts? Look no further!

Okay, on to the giveaway! To be entered, simply pop over to the Made On Acorn Hill and comment below which product you’re most excited about. I’ll run the giveaway for one week, concluding next Thursday, November 21st, midnight EST. Do be sure to leave a means of contacting you, should you be the winner, via either a link back to your website or blog, or by leaving your email in your comments.

These hard-working mamas (with 11 children between them!) have crafted a line of products that soothe, soften, heal, and renew. That’s something I can absolutely get behind. Here’s hoping you do, too!
