I'm Lindsey Rose Arnold, maker of luxury soaps & candles. Born & raised in New York's Hudson Valley, I made a huge life change and returned in 2016 from a farming life in Northern California to start anew in my hometown.
Having learned to make soap in San Francisco over a 3-day ‘Soapmaking Bootcamp’ hosted by the famous Nova Studio, I had one passion that kept me going during a tumultous time of finding myself & recreating a life almost from scratch, with my dogs but sans the partnership & occupation that had previously so defined me.
Turning an obsession with soapmaking into an artisan company that creates unique, naturally luxurious soap for those who want more from their shower & who want to make a positive difference in the world, has been the name of my game now since May of 2017.
The response has been phenomenal.
Heart & Arrow Handcrafted produces unique, luxury soaps and spa products with the highest quality ingredients that leave your skin feeling divinely nourished and your senses alive.
Locally & lovingly crafted at our studio in the heart of New York's Shawangunk Mountains, each batch reflects our commitment to originality, passion & sophistication.
Our eco-friendly process, minimal packaging & charitable giving mean you can enjoy handcrafted natural luxury while contributing to a better world.
I hope you'll join Heart & Arrow on our journey of growth & expansion. And I hope Heart & Arrow soap is with you on every step of your journey to keep you clean, your skin feeling heavenly, and your senses enlivened by the aromatherapy of each bar.
Elevate your experience!
I believe loving yourself is revolutionary. I believe our connection to nature is an endless source of love, learning, beauty & inspiration. I believe in following dreams with heart. I believe that from the ashes can truly rise the Phoenix.
I believe that true beauty plays off everything you contain, rather than anything you lack.
I believe women are capable of far more than we let ourselves believe. I believe women are inherently leaders. I believe that uplifting women everywhere is fundamental to global sustainability.
I want to live in a world where people feel whole & sexy & absolutely worthwhile, with or without a partner, with or without children; regardless of socio-economic status or political philosophy.
I want to live in a world where women work together to achieve goals & support each other, building self-esteem rather than competing for “likes”.
I want to live in a world where plastics do not fill our oceans & wash up on our beaches; where non-renewable energy is a thing of the past & every person has access to undisturbed nature & clean, free water.
I want to live in a world where raw natural beauty inspires awe; personal moments with friends & family & pets are savored; and neither is taken for granted or ignored for a more Instagrammable composition.
As Heart & Arrow women, we refuse to sit in the passenger seat of our lives. We refuse to be hypnotized by low prices & convenience that compromises our social & environmental values.
We choose to live authentically, embracing ourselves & our life paths wholly. We choose to embrace others (especially other women) with compassion.
We choose to step forward & share our love, share our voice, care for & share ourselves.
Join me in elevating self love & world care through conscious, sustainable skincare.
Join me in loving yourself more.
Join me in changing what it means to be a woman today.
One of my favorite quotes is: "I am one person~ I can't do everything, but I can do something."
