My Story

Hi! I'm Charity, owner of Mieka Olive Oil. I have been a Registered Nurse for over eight years.  While my three beautiful children were younger, I homeschooled them. When they transitioned to a private Christian school I decided to pursue a degree in nursing.  I finished with a baccalaureate from Eastern Mennonite University. My care and concern for others has made nursing a rewarding career, but I have longed to help people in other ways.  
When the opportunity to provide handcrafted olive oil soaps presented itself, I was thrilled. 
Mieka, the founder of Made by Mieka Soaps, enthusiastically taught me the process of making her traditional Mediterranean olive oil soaps.  The natural ingredients ensure a gentle and moisturizing benefit for skin: the polyphenols in the olive oil have antioxidant properties which help protect skin, and the aroma therapy gives a relaxed (lavender) or rejuvenating (peppermint) experience.  The honey and oats soap exfoliates and encourages new cell growth, and the shea butter soap helps heal and moisture dry skin.  These are all qualities that I find extremely valuable as a nurse.  Skin is the body’s first line of protection, and it deserves to be well cared for.  
My hope is that you find my handcrafted soap as healthful and beneficial as I do. Enjoy!
