Who is Botanica Basics LLC?


Located in the lush, rolling hills of the Missouri Ozarks, Botanica Basics LLC is owned and run by Sandra and Kevin Meyer. We are a farm based small business specializing in handmade soaps and natural bath & body products. We design, formulate and create our products in our dedicated 600 sq ft soap studio.


We create for you only the best and most gentle Handmade Soap and Natural Bath & Body Care products by utilizing pure vegetable, fruit and plant based oils, herbs, their extracts and essential oils and safe, gentle synthetic fragrance oils.


Our core product line is handmade soaps that are plant oil based. We use no tallow, lard or other animal fats. Our soaps are made by us from start to finish with our own soap base blend, not a melt and pour soap base or pre-made soap base noodles or blocks. We also hand make lotions, body polishes (body scrubs), lip moisturizers and foot care. More than half of our products are scented with naturally derived fragrance blends, composed of essential oils, plant and herb extracts and resins, natural aroma chemical components, plus ground herbs in some. We also use top quality phthalate-free fragrance oils as there are scents that either cannot be created with natural based fragrance components or the costs to create or purchase them are too prohibitive for use. Several of our fragrances are proprietary blends, which means you'll only find them here, not coming and going everywhere else!


Our Handcrafted Products are:


Mild and non-stripping;

Retains the natural glycerin from the soap making process;
Use phthalate-free fragrances;

Contain minimal synthetic additives.


Our Scentless Planet line is all of the above, plus 100% No Added Fragrances, Colors or Flavors. 

In our freestanding, dedicated Soap Studio and Lab located in the heart of the Missouri Ozarks, we create for your customers the best Handmade Soap and Natural Bath & Body products. We're repeatedly told our products rival and are even better than many larger brand natural soaps and products.  We will continue to meet and exceed your and your customers high expectations.


Thank You For Trusting Us With Your Customers' Skin Care Needs.
