About the Artisan and Owner

Patricia Monk and her family were originally from humid Rhode Island, so when they moved to dry Southeastern New Mexico, the desert took a toll on their skin. To solve their problem with tight, dry, and itchy complexion, Patricia used her science background to develop recipes for bath products that would infuse moisture.

Creating a Solution and a Business

Using the traditional cold-process method, Patricia spent many days producing the perfect bar of soap. She was able to formulate one that lathers well, especially in hard water, rinses clean, and moisturizes the skin. Not long after that, Made to Lather was created and has since grown to include a wide range of bath and body products made in small batches to guarantee freshness.

Living in the Countryside

On a small farm in Artesia, New Mexico, Patricia lives with her husband and daughter, where they raise exhibition ducks, chickens, sheep, and goats.
