The Legend of Eva and Maison Terre
Maison Terre was created by Evangeline Arnaud in 1794.  She was just 16 when she left her native France and embarked on her voyage to the New World.  She had intended to join her uncle Rene in New Orleans, but during the voyage she met and fell in love with an adventurer named Gabriel.  In New Orleans, they married and made their way north to the vicinity of Hot Springs.  There, the young couple built a home, which Evangeline called Maison Terre.
Evangeline delighted in this new earth, as she called it.  Her family had been perfume makers in Provence.  Although she was young, she was well-versed in the knowledge of extracting oils from plants and in creating scents and remedies.  At Maison Terre, she created new scents and useful products from the plants around her.  Soon she was able to make new products that gave pleasure and relief to others.  By 1816, her products were being made by all of the members of her household and shipped to New Orleans, and from there to the world beyond.
Maison Terre bath and body products are produced today in Little Rock.  In keeping with Evangeline’s philosophy “the earth gives us all that we need and desire,” Maison Terre produces high-quality, all-natural products.  The makers at Maison Terre search the world for the best ingredients, such as Shea butter, sandalwood oil and eucalyptus oil and are committed to bringing you the finest bath and body products.


Aromatherapy Candles

All natural candles made with a soy-beeswax blend and eco-wick (lead free).  Our candles are truly all natural because they are scented with essential oils (no fragrances).  Essential oils are very concentrated liquids that carry the "essence" of the plant from which they are derived.  By blending these oils together in special combinations we have created a unique and elegant candle.  in addition to using essential oils, our candles are garnished with organic flowers, herbs & spices to reflect the botanical aromas within the candle.

We carry over 100 exotic herbs & spices and continue to update our inventory monthly. Our herbs are 100% Organic and sealed to ensure freshness.
