About

Creations from the Heart!!

You pay attention to what you put IN your body - pay attention to what you put ON your body as well.

Handmade products are like nothing else for your skin. My handmade products are detergent free, gentle and healthy for your skin, and smell wonderful.

My products are made with a combination of skin loving oil blends using Avocado Oil, Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, and Castor Oil, and with Shea and Cocoa Butters, which leave your skin feeling soft and smooth!

The colorants I use are skin safe, either dried/ground botanicals or micas, ultramarines, and/or oxides (natural colorants).

To scent the soaps, I use either pure therapeutic grade essential oils or skin safe fragrances.

My soap bars are handmade from scratch using the cold or hot process method. I also have melt and pour soap bars.

I personally hand cut each bar of soap, so the sizes may vary ever so slightly. Also, because I hand make each bar of soap, no two bars are alike . . . you are buying a piece of Soap art . . . Enjoy !!

With proper care, your soap bars should last several weeks of daily use. Make sure you keep your soap dry between each use with a draining soap saver or soap dish (see the soap savers that we use with our soap gift sets).

Note: Please advise if you have a skin problem or disorder before purchasing. There are some profucts that may not be good for oily skin, and there are some products that may be irritating to dry skin.

Most Ingredients used in Cold Process or Hot Process Soap:
Saponified oils of Avocado, Coconut, Olive, Castor, Aloe, Sweet Almond, and/or Argan; Shea Butter; Cocoa Butter; Tallow; Beeswax; Jojoba Beads; Natural Powders; Micas, Oxides or Cosmetic Color; Clays; Additives like Hops, Oatmeal, and/or Calendula Petals; Therapeutic Essential Oils and Fragrance Oils.

    Owner, Creator

    My husband asked me to learn how to make soap with beer so he could give it as a present to his brewing buddies. I can't resist my husband so I took the plunge and here I am now, making more than just soap and my skin loves me for it.

    Marketer, Assistant, My Sister

    My sister didn't understand what I did to sell my soap so she helped me at a Boutique. After that she was hooked and got involved with my Etsy site. She made it her goal to get each listing as high in the search as she can. I love her for it!

INGREDIENTS:

General Information - All of our handmade soaps retain all the natural glycerin formed in the soap making process, cleaning without stripping away the natural oils, great for those with sensitive skin. The additives are intended to add texture and color. All of our handmade soaps are Eco-friendly since they are made without detergents and other environmental toxic chemicals; made entirely by hand, using very little energy, with the utmost care and diligence and premium ingredients.

Aromas - We use cosmetic skin-safe Essential Oils and Fragrance Oils as aromas for our products, each with its appropriate suggested ratios. We only buy our Essential Oils and Fragrances from reputable vendors. An Essential Oil is a natural oil typically obtained by distillation and having the characteristic fragrance of the plant or other source from which it is extracted. A Fragrance Oil, also known as aroma oils, are blended synthetic aroma compounds or natural essential oils that are diluted with a carrier like propylene glycol or vegetable oil.

Other Information - Our products are entirely made by hand from start to finish. We buy our raw materials from reputable vendors, we do not support the engineered food industry. None of our products are tested on animals, we are cruelty free. We do not use Parabens, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Petroleum byproducts, nor any other similar.

Technically and naturally, soap can not be moisturizing, soap is intended to clean; it is a wash-off product. A well balanced handmade soap can be less stripping and does not act as detergent where the molecular chains pull too much away. Some additives in my bars of soap have exfoliation properties that may make your skin feel softer. Natural oil production in our bodies seems to be less in dry colder months while in hotter months this sebum production increases.

HELPFUL TIPS:

How to make your Handmade Soap last longer - If you want to make your soap last longer, we suggest to keep it out of constant running water, most lather easily and you don't need that much to feel squeaky clean. Let the soap dry between uses.
