Crystal Wellman - Founder + Master Aesthetician + Avid Gardener
Crystal Wellman is a licensed Master Aesthetician so taking care of the skin is her greatest passion! Crystal creates most of our products by hand selecting every ingredient used and carefully choosing those that are gentle and safe for the skin, for the environment and for your family.
How did Sugar + Spruce come to fruition? "Morgan and I attended a soap making class in Northern Virginia, so I started making soaps and lotions for myself and my many skincare clients. The response was overwhelming and I saw an opportunity to provide Fredericksburg, and the region, with quality, healthy, carefully formulated personal care products."
Crystal's favorite weekend activities - "You can find me and my husband touristing through Virginia visiting the many historic towns and landmarks. Of course, you will also find me shopping and spending all of our money in these wonderful boutiques tucked into the amazing quaint towns, as Virginia offers so many.'
Favorite things to do - "Heirloom gardening is the best! I love to use fragrant organic flower blossoms to make tinctures and glycerites for personal products as well as all natural perfumes. I have several heirloom rose gardens on my hobby farm so naturally Spring is my favorite time of the year. Recently, I started collecting vintage perfume bottles and taking photography lessons."
Crystal is from Hawaii so it's only natural that she loves everything about nature and natural skincare.

Morgan Wellman - Co-Owner + Bright Idea Woman + Fearless Leader
A 2014 honors graduate from Mountain View High School, Morgan finished her education there in just three years. She spent her freshman year at Christopher Newport University on an honors scholarship before transferring to the University of Mary Washington where she is currently pursuing a business degree.
Morgan’s favorite things to do when not working - "As a student who is also running a company, I keep myself fairly busy, so when I have free time I really like to relax. Most of the time you can find me hanging out with my best friend Hannah or cuddling with my cats and watching Netflix.:
Morgan’s Hobbies - "I am the kind of person who loves to try all sorts of things. This past year I’ve picked up knitting, sewing, pottery throwing, and cookie decorating. I mostly enjoy baking, reading, and binge watching TV shows though. My sweet tooth will never quit so I am always making some sort of dessert. My favorite to buy will always be sour candy, but I really like making brownies! You can usually find me reading or watching something with more of a fantasy/supernatural element to it, but my favorite shows are actually Rick and Morty and Gravity Falls."
