Meet Our President  & Chief Maker

Val Barnett is the President and Chief Maker of Emmerse.  Emmerse was created to help busy adults find time-efficient and easy ways to relax. Emmerse was born from the need of a mental health outlet for our founder, Val Barnett.  Often using candles to help herself relax, Val started to make custom scent blends and hand-made products to help ease her own anxiety and to create high quality products for her friends to enjoy. 

Our Purpose and Vision

Our purpose is to provide scented, natural, artisan curated products that make relaxation easy and time-efficient.  Our vision is to aid in creating a world where self-care is involuntary and mental wellness is a top measure of good health.  We are committed to high quality products that are effective, while also being eco-friendly.  When we create products we strive to create a diversity of scent blends and to express innovation with our ingredient choices.

 Ultimately, our goal is to provide relaxation in a jar.   Emmerse started as a candle company and has expanded our product lines to include hand-made bar soaps, mango body butters and lip balms.  All of the product names express how you will feel when you use the product. Emmerse provides products to help the entire family relax.


Eco-Friendly, Artisan Curated, Luxury
