About Us

Our Passion is Natural & Organic!

Established in 2008, Pompeii Street Soap Co. & Aromatherapy is a small company located in the heart central Pennsylvania. We proudly handcraft natural artisan soaps and body care products in small batches right here in our Mifflinburg facility, and meticulously source certified organic and wildcrafted essential oils, carriers, infused oils, and hydrosols from our trusted agricultural partners from all around the globe.

We are organic certified!
In 2015, we completed the USDA Organic Certification process. We offer over 70 certified organic products including essential oils, hydrosols, and carriers. In addition to our collection of organic essential oils, you will find an abundance of organic ingredients used throughout our bath and body products.

Our Products Are...

  • Formulated through the lens of a certified aromatherapist
  • Scratch-made in our cozy little Central PA workshop
  • Made with natural, organic, and sustainably sourced raw materials
  • Lab tested. We verify the chemistry of our essential oils and many other raw materials to assure they are free of parabens and phthalates.


Our Essential Oil Quality Standards


  • Label each bottle with the batch number, country of origin, cultivation method, distillation method and the distillation date.
  • 3rd party gc/ms test every batch of oil we sell, meaning that even if a distiller provides us with a report, we still send a sample to a lab for 3rd party testing to verify the chemistry.
  • We have 3 Certified Aromatherapists on staff to evaluate each oil as it is received and to review the test results to ensure our exacting standards are met.
  • Store our oils in our climate-controlled cold room to ensure maximum freshness.
  • Move oils to our clearance section of the website when they are no longer at their peak freshness.
  • Provide the batch-specific gc/ms analysis for our current batches right on our website so you can view the chemistry before you buy.
  • Offer introductory aromatherapy workshops in our cute little green building. 
  • Promote the safe use of essential oils by working with each customer in our shop to ensure they understand the safety concerns of the oils they purchase.


About Our Staff

We are a close-knit staff of certified aromatherapists, soapmakers, formulators, creators, nature lovers, vegans, and ingredient label readers. We look forward to helping you smell and feel awesome, naturally.

Jessica G.
Company Owner & Soap Maker


Jess is the author of all Pompeii Street formulas. She started the business in her parent's basement and has been working happily with essential oils since 2001. She is an artisan soap maker, certified aromatherapist, graphic designer, and back-porch distiller.

Besides crafting soap batches, Jess specializes in sourcing and analyzing the chemical composition of each essential oil before it is offered for sale. She firmly believes in transparency of product ingredients and is dedicated to continual learning. Jess and her staff keep up on the latest research on essential oils and the aromatherapy industry.

When not in the soap kitchen, Jess enjoys time with her family in Mifflinburg and spends her free time knitting and planning her next venture, Green Ridge Lavender Farm.

Dawn H.

Our employee with the longest seniority, Dawn has been with Pompeii Street from the very start (2008) and specializes in the creation of many of our body care products. She oversees the inventory and production of our lotions, body butters, sugar scrubs, liquid soaps, lip balms, salve and more. Dawn is a lover of all animals and enjoys caring for her cats, vegan cuisine, gardening, and thrift store shopping.

Often, Dawn can be found laughing with employees and customers, and is a very familiar face behind the counter in our retail store. 


Morgan O.

Joining our team in 2020, Morgan manages our retail operations and oversees virtually all aspects of product finishing. She is also responsible for pouring/bottling our wide selection of essential oils, infused oils, carriers, and hydrosols, and is a common face you'll see when shopping in our brick-and-mortar store.

Outside of work, she enjoys spoiling her two cats, playing cards with friends and family, and spending time with her husband.

Ben joined our Pompeii Street family in April of 2019 and manages all digital facets of Pompeii Street. He oversees our multiple social media channels, maintains our website, and designs our marketing materials such as brochures, product labels, newsletters, and product photography. Though much of his work is digital, he can also often be found at the checkout counter or helping a customer on the sales floor—and is usually the voice you'll hear when you call us!

Ben is passionate about sustainability and lessening our collective carbon footprint. Outside of work, he enjoys photographing live music events, hiking the forests and mountains of central PA, grilling, and making strong coffee. 


Kathie H.

Among our newest employees, Kathie joined our team in June 2023 and oversees all of our order processing. When you make an online purchase, it's very likely that Kathie picked, packed, and shipped your order (with love).

Kathie considers herself a 'foodie' and enjoys tasting different varieties of craft beers. Her hobbies include traveling, pollinator gardening, reading, rescuing animals, and holistic healing through aromatherapy, acupuncture, and massage.
