HSMG Conference Platinum Sponsor – Lebermuth Company!

HSMG is proud to again have Corporate Member, Lebermuth Company, member since 1998, wholesale supplier of fragrances and essential oils, as a Platinum Sponsor at the upcoming in Denver, CO Conference.

In 1908, Lebermuth Company was founded by a farmer named Morris Brown and his family. They traded in farm produce until they discovered the value of essential oils when someone used peppermint oil to barter for produce. The company began as M. Brown and Sons and while headed by Morris Brown’s direct descendant, Irvin Brown, merged with Lebermuth Company in 1974. Today the Company still prides itself on providing the best possible service and quality products available.

Angie Carter will be attending the HSMG Conference for the third year in a row along with Rob Brown, Irv Brown and Eve Hardin, who is an inside sales representative for Lebermuth. Angie will be manning the Lebermuth booth and asks that you to stop by to say hello. She is proud of the fact that Lebermuth has been supporting our Conference for many years.

Angie stated she supports her customers whether they buy from Lebermuth once a year or every month. Lebermuth offers essential oils, organic essential oils and natural and synthetic fragrance oils. She proudly emphasized that they offer everything for soap and candle making, as well as decorative botanicals. They source essential oils from around the world and have direct relationships with the farmers who grow them.

Lebermuth’s strict quality control ensures that everything meets their specifications prior to being purchased and then again prior to leaving their facility to the customer. In addition, Lebermuth manufactures its own fragrance oils under strict quality conditions. Angie said they are tested by an experienced professional soapmaker prior to being sold to any customer.
