This soap is beautiful with a lovely apple smell. It was a bit larger than I was expecting, but well-packaged and will make a great gift for a friend who loves horses.

These soaps smell so good and are so pretty. I haven’t used them yet as they are Christmas gifts (one for myself). But I know I will love them! I have a two year old granddaughter who has Down syndrome and I am thrilled to be able to help support April!

Makes unique and wonderful gifts! I am a repeat customer because the soaps are beautiful and fragrant. I love ordering as gifts for family, friends, teachers, and neighbors. The order ships quickly and I've always been super happy. The shop owner and team are super kind and helpful. Will get more soon!

Handmade Soaps from April
April's Cottage Soaps by April, started as the dream of an entrepreneurial artist with Down Syndrome. After spending many years in art classes , she decided to make her hobby her business.
As the craft business grew April discovered a love of glycerin crafted soap making and soap painting. This fun process allows her to use her love of color and painting to create a useful, beautiful product that everyone enjoys. Finding the best vegetable glycerin , creating the lovely scents and painting the soaps with a glycerin based paint is April's business and pleasure.
April has naturally dry sensitive skin that was always itchy.
After using her own glycerin soaps, no more itchy skin, The soaps all have naturally moisturizing ingredients and herbal fragrances. Some have honey , shey butter, or goat's milk. Many of the herbs are harvested from April's own garden.
April loves her soaps ( she has five in her bath and shower). Even Wizard Weaslay-the mascot, has his own doggy bar.
We welcome custom orders and would be delighted to create something special for your event.
We hope you enjoy visiting the shop and are looking forward to seeing you at an Ohio craft show.
