About The Owner
Hey ya'll, just a little about me, Melodie, so you know who The Cup & Kettle is....  I have owned a chocolate business since 2004.  When my oldest son (the one the chocolate business was created for) finished high school and went on to culinary school, we took a break from making chocolates and baked goods for several years, however.  When The Chocolate Works was open we operated as a dessert cafe serving fresh baked goodies, sweet crepes, coffees and of course chocolates of all kinds.  Everything was made fresh by us daily.  


In addition to chocolates & confections, I have been manufacturing bath and body products for over 25 years (soaps from scratch, body sprays, salves, ointments, lip products, lotions, butters, etc), studied herbal medicine and aromatherapy and also has a background in the medical field. I am a perpetual student in herbal and aromatherapy studies as I do not believe we ever stop learning and the world of herbs and oils is just so fascinating.


The Cup & Kettle has been a dream of mine for many years.   Everything tea and herbal and natural is a passion of mine to share with as many as I can.  I truly believe that once you try our hand blended teas and all natural products you will see there is no comparison with mass machine produced products.  Many of our bath & body products are all natural (no fragrances or synthetic ingredients).  However, if it contains water, it will also contain a preservative (this is for your safety).  And we do also offer some more "fun" bath & body products that will contain colorants and fragrance oils but we take the time to carefully select the safest ingredients available.
