COLUMBUS—Visitors to the Columbus Farmers Market on Courthouse Square have been drawn to the vibrant display at the Wispy Garden Naturals booth, where Diana Pack of Mill Spring proudly offers a range of homemade, all-natural products. 

Driven by a deep-seated concern for her relatives with sensitive skin, Pack ventured into soap making, infusing each of her colorful creations with a heartfelt commitment to quality and care. From soaps and lotions to bath fizzes and chapstick, all Wispy Garden Naturals products are meticulously crafted by Pack herself, ensuring a personal touch in each item. 

The aptly named Wispy Garden reflects Pack’s philosophy of creating the most effective and safest ingredients in her products. “I try to make everything as natural as possible, with the best ingredients,” she says, highlighting the absence of chemicals commonly found in store-bought alternatives.

While acknowledging the time-intensive nature of her craft, Pack finds fulfillment in the intricate process. Looking ahead, she aims to expand her offerings to include sugar scrubs and bath salts. Several of her soaps are designed for specific purposes, such as treating poison ivy and repelling insects. 

With a curing period of 4-6 weeks, Pack ensures that every item is individually packaged and shrink-wrapped, accompanied by a comprehensive list of ingredients for full transparency. The Wispy Garden Naturals booth has become a staple at the market, embodying the spirit of local entrepreneurship and a commitment to artisanal creations folks have come to expect from our local Farmers Markets. 

Those interested in purchasing Wispy Garden Naturals products can contact Diana at wispygadennaturals2023@gmail.com or visit her booth at the Columbus Farmers Market on Saturday mornings.
