Amazing products, Amazing owner and Amazing business helping those with special needs. I have enjoyed buying these products for years and am sad to see the business close. I hope there is a guardian... angel out there to take over Lynn's mission. See More

My family asked Emma's Friends to create shower favors for a very special baby on the way, I picked up the favors this past week and the cute little soaps were so beautiful and made with such love and... care and packaged so beautifully! The shower was this past weekend and were admired and loved by all! Thank you Emma's Friends, we love you glad you are a part of our town! See More

I only found out about Emma's Friends a few minutes ago, thanks to a FB share of WNEP's story. As a mom of a severely challenged young man, I want to thank you for doing what you do. As a shopper, I... fully intend to visit your shop! See More

Just saw this featured on PCN Tours. This is a fabulous business and can't wait to visit it. Love the natural items I saw being made and love that Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort uses these items at the resort.

I've loved using your bar soap, liquid soap and hand cream for quite awhile but I have to really thank you for your Sniffer Salve. I got sick while traveling. I used regular lotion on my sore nose b...ut it stung & didn't soothe the pain. When I got home the 1st application of Sniffer Salve felt amazing!
It melts into your skin without feeling greasy or waxy. Love, love love it!!!

What wonderful products and fantastic story behind the brand. I will always support businesses with such compassion and pride in their products and those who make them. Thank You!!!

A peek into our lives….
It’s been nearly a year since we closed Emma’s Friends, the business, 20 months since we’ve closed the store. So much has happened in that time and I thought I would share some of it with our amazing customers/friends.

When I announced we were closing the store, it was to stay true to what inspired the business, the life of our daughter, Emma. When we closed the store and I had more time for Emma, she revealed even more how much she was at last ready ...

Our last week of online orders until we close. We are COMPLETELY CAUGHT UP and back on our regular turn around time ...with wholesale orders shipping this week to the amazing stores stocking our goodies till the end. If there was something you wanted in your stocking... now is the time! Thank you to ALL who flooded our online store and shop to date. We are truly immeasurably blessed.

Wave after wave of orders shipping this week.... Fancy Face bottling is up next. If you have Fancy Face in your order.... it should be shipped by Friday! Thank you again everyone for your patience! xoxo Lynn

Thank you to all who have jumped on our site and flocked to our store to purchase our goods at the news of our upcoming closure. To put it lightly, we are overwhelmed. In the first 30 hours, we received what would be a typical 3 weeks worth of orders and a steady flow of walk in customers at our little West Hazleton location. We were wiped out of lotions we had listed online in that short time and are trying desperately to catch up.

If you haven't received your order as ...yet, it probably contained Oatmeal, Milk & Honey, Perfectly Pear, Peacefulness, Marzipan or Lovely Lavender lotions. And, for that, I am terribly sorry for the delay. We are working as fast as we can to get products made, bottled, labeled and shipped. I so appreciate your patience with us. Everything should be shipped by the first week of December at the latest, with orders rolling out as we finish products.

I try to end each day with the thought of the picture in this message as I continue to try to balance the work of the business and the increasingly wonderful needs of Emma and our family.... it has been a chaotic time, but affirmed our work in ways I couldn't have imagined and for that, I am so very grateful. I haven't responded to messages as we work to get products out... when we get all our orders out, I look forward to a little quiet time to respond to the incredible messages many of you have sent to us. Meanwhile, back to work in the shop! While we have announced our site will be closed for new orders after December 10th, we of course won't stop shipping until all orders are out and delivered.

So very sorry for the massive delays... orders are lined up all over the shop awaiting their lotions, with some newer orders without lotions waiting for a moment for me to pull and pack them.

Thank you again for your patience and support of Emma's Friends!

Lynn and ALL of Emma's Friends

Hello! I know we have been a bit off the radar since we reorganized Emma's Friends. It has been a wonderful opportunity to clarify our mission and spend more time with Emma. Something our family really needed!

And, so, while any other year I would be packing up the RV and trailer and heading to the People's Choice Festival of Pennsylvania in Boalsburg today, this year marks yet another change. We will NOT BE ATTENDING ANY SHOWS this year.

I will miss seeing our amazing... customers at the shows, of that there is no doubt! And, while we won't be in Boalsburg, you can still grab our goods at the various stores which sell our goods across the state (find a list here: as well as on our website

We wish all the show organizers and vendors a wonderful season! We'll be thinking of you all! Everyone attending --- have a wonderful time! xoxo
