About Truly-Life

Truly-Life: Caring about the planet

Just about five miles south of the White House the tiny company Truly-Life is the ultimate urban garden. Owner Mellenie and partner Andy grow loofahs, herbs, and flowers which are used in their eco friendly skin care products. Farming is hard work – even in the city.

Mellenie started making soap in her kitchen as a way to live more GREEN. The handmade soaps became party favors for her dog Max’s birthday. The handmade soaps were a big hit and a business was born.Ray Runion woodworking  Mellenie and Andy continue to create the ever growing line of skin care products in Alexandria, Virginia.  Mellenie’s father, Ray works in the Shenandoah Valley building the heirloom boxes from trees he cut, milled, and aged all within a ten mile radius of his woodshop.  Check out the handmade gifts including soap, eco lip balm, bath fizz, soap infused loofahs, smudge sticks, lotion, and much more. Family, friends, and lots of laughter. That is truly-life!

Mission:  Handmade soap, skin care and garden gifts that are better for you and the environment.
