This company was located in Hammond IN and sold herbs, tea & soap. I was hoping to find some formulations in it but didn't have much luck. I did find this and liked the write-up:

Wild Wood Toilet Soap
.25 per bar, 6 bars for $1.00
The superfine toilet soap. Is for those who value their complexion. It is the aristocrat of soaps. It is intended for those who consider quality above price. It is made of the finest materials, as is apparent to any connoisseur upon the first using of this soap.
That fresh, dainty appearance desired by every lady of refinement can only be maintained by the use of a superfine toilet soap.
Soaps made from cheap grease, rendered from every conceivable source, cannnot be good for the complexion. No amount of perfume can make such soaps good.
Our Wild Wood Tiolet Soap is made of selected materials-edible fats-scientifically blended with essential oils.

I thought this was interesting, too.
Canada Snake Root Liniment
Made from Canada Snake Root, Capsicum, May Apple Root, Indian Turnip and soap shavings
