This is the BEST lip balm ever! When my lips are beat up and chapped, I put this on at night and the improvement in the morning is remarkable. Plus, they smell delicious without being sweet or candy-ish, which is a big plus for me. Also, seller is a dream to order from. My friend brought me back a tin from a real store on PEI and when I ran low, I found this Etsy shop. Messaged the seller asking her to make me a listing for more and it was up and done the next morning! Plus it arrived very quickly. The shining example of what an Etsy interaction should be like (except for the very late review from me! Sorry about that!). Thanks so much!!!

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!

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!
