Lidiia Olszowy made her first soap in Ukraine when she was 15 years old. Her curiosity stemmed from the herbal teas and natural dyes of her mother’s work and was aided by her grandmother’s life long experiences.

At a young age she was exposed to native European crafts like embroidery, knitting, crocheting, candle-making, painting, sewing, flower-making, macrame, herbal teas, beading, healing balms and many others.

Lidiia followed her husband to Fairbanks when he took a job with a local company in 2010. She started a small farm plus a cosmetic and soap making business which she named “Alaska’s Angels Farm”. Her company is well known for utilizing natural and environmental friendly products to many people in the interior of Alaska, the lower 48 and throughout the world.
