Bowers, Leslie — Peace of the Earth

Louisville, KY


soaps & lotions, soy candles

Leslie Bowers grew up in Louisville, KY and spent quite a few years as a baker. She has always loved the chemistry of mixing ingredients and creating products people will enjoy. Leslie started Peace of the Earth in early 2006, after years of studying essential oils and buying natural products for her family.


As she has developed her business and product line, Leslie has learned how to source the finest ingredients, often local and organic, and has developed eco-friendly packaging, down to recycled paperboard and soy ink.


Since 2011, Leslie has also operated a shop in downtown Louisville. She enjoys getting to meet her customers and hear their feedback. Leslie says of her business, “Peace of Earth is a bit like a third child to me—I have put much hope and energy into it and have loved seeing it blossom over the years.”


Leslie Bowers’ work can be found at NuLu, her shop in Louisville, KY; A Taste of Kentucky, Louisville, KY; Completely Kentucky, Frankfort, KY and the Kentucky Artisan Center at Berea in Berea, KY.
