About

a soaper on the natural path

Many years ago, before sustainability became the buzz word it is, i got it in my head that it would be awesome--empowering!--to be able to create the necessities of life rather than buy them. Along with my best friend, we started our mad science experiments: concocting soaps, shampoos, bath bombs, lotion bars, bath salts and candles. We sold a little, but kept a lot and enjoyed the fruits of our labors as much as our feelings of accomplishment. But along came kids, and they don't exactly mix with bubbling cauldrons and hot wax, so i let it go for a few years. The economy hit my little family hard, and i found a need for my abilities (and the ingredients i still had to make everything!), so i began churning out my favorite of the goodies: soap.

Soap is like a little piece of heaven to me--the scents, the bubbles, the warmth of the bath or shower (it became my "me time" when my kids were babies!). Over the years I've become aware of the dangers of commercial products--from beauty and hygiene to household and cleaning products. So i made it my mission to create soap that was really, truly natural and contained none of the nasty stuff--not even artificial colors or scents. I still uphold that mission, as my company evolves with my budding ideas and creations: nothing but all-natural soap that not only smells amazing, but leaves your skin baby-soft and lathers like crazy. I even use my soaps on my hair and create a watered-down paste version to wash dishes and in my household cleaner. Laundry, too, has become all-natural with my Laundry Soap and Laundry Bars (available in my shop).

Throughout all of this, i've kept crocheting, as well, and have been determined to create unusual pieces to strike someone's fancy. I've learned so much over the past few years, and have enjoyed the challenge of appealing to a customer's tastes.

I hope you enjoy my products as much as i enjoy making them. Please contact me with any questions. I'm happy to help! :)

Frequently asked questions

Care instructions

Homemade soap is a humectant, that is, it attracts moisture. For this reason, please keep your soap dry between uses and in a well-draining soap dish. If you don't, it will melt and greatly decrease the life of your soap!

Laundry soap may get a little clumpy in humid climates. All you have to do is mash it up and mix it. I go through my mixed laundry soap thoroughly with a pastry blender, but I can't control what the humidity does to it after it leaves my hands!

Hard water + natural shampoo

This is a tricky combination. Put together, these two things can make your hair feel gross. Try a 1:6 apple cider vinegar to water rinse. If that doesn't help, you might be out of luck when it comes to natural shampoo. Rest assured then when washing your hair with soft water, my soaps should make your hair feel awesome--much better than after using store-bought shampoo.

Wholesale availability

At this time, my soaps are not available for wholesale. I'm a one-woman operation, and I also have a job. And a family. And a boatload of pets. I can provide large custom orders, but probably not on a routine basis. Please feel free to contact me with questions. :)

I love trades!

If you'd rather trade my goods for yours, drop me a line! I love handmade stuff of all kinds--including other's soap!--so feel free to ask. :)

Shipping costs are way too high!

Do not fear! I refund shipping overages!!! Don't let the shipping costs scare you. Etsy has some weird shipping calculation practices, IMO, so I charge enough to ensure shipping costs are covered, but sometimes, it charges WAY too much. PLEASE contact me with concerns. I can tell you exactly what you'll spend, once your refund has gone through. I ship the least expensive ways possible because it makes sense. And i'm completely transparent about how much you're charged and why. Also, cuz it makes sense. If you're in or near Lancaster County, PA and would prefer to pick up, we can do that too, with a full refund of shipping costs. :)
