This soap smells wonderful and leaves my hair feeling clean but not squeaky. This seller is wonderful to do business with. Thank you!

I love this soap, it lathers really well and smells like a dream. I will definately be purchasing more. Excellent product! The samplese of lip balm and the other ocean soap is also fabulous!

received it yesterday, can't wait to try it tonight. :) Thanks so much!
Apples don't fall far from trees!
I was brought up by my Grandmother, and what a teacher she was! A knitter, rug-hooker, soapmaker, a terrific cook and baker, she did it all, and did it well. I picked up all those loves, owned a fabric/yarn shop, custom seamstress business, and more!
I raised my family and put most of my skills to good use, designing wedding gowns, christenings sets, prom dresses. But I always had a hankering to make home made soap. My memories of my grandmother making soap were a far cry from the way it is done today, but I bought lots of books, did a lot of research, and started collecting supplies. A mold here, measuring cups there. Oxides here, essential oils there. Everywhere I went, I searched. And finally the day arrived for my first step into the world of my ancestors, and mixed my first batch. Oh, the anticipation. And oh, what a failure.
But I was also blessed with a terrific stubborn streak, (Taurus) and I persevered. And it was worth it! Now, to try a new recipe or tool, and 4 weeks later to give a few bars away to friends and family to try, I love it!! What's next? Why Etsy, of course! I hope you give Black Rafter a try, too!
Hi! I'm a proud Canadian, and a happy soapmaker! My world is filled with a wonderful husband of 36 years, four terrific grown children, and my newest additions, four little dividends! (Grandkids, of course!)
