Welcome to Dancing Garden
Thank you for taking the time to browse our shop.

I like everyone to be happy with their purchase so to avoid any confusion please read this page as it informs you of policies and procedures. This helps eliminate any problems before they happen so please take the time to read it if you have any concerns or questions.

Our goal is to provide you with the best quality body products that are rich in natural and/or organic beneficial ingredients without all the useless fillers and synthetic additives found in commercial products today. We use sustainable palm oil, organic oils, natural products, cosmetic or skin grade color and natural colorants. We strive to use the very best ingredients for our products. We use phthalate free fragrances and the finest essential oils. Most of our products are vegan friendly. Our labels are recycled seed paper that you can plant and grow flowers. We do our best to use recycled papers.

All of my soaps contain natural oils and botanical ingredients that do change the color or alter the appearance over time. This is a part of the natural beauty of handmade soap and makes each one very unique. Every soap will vary slightly, color and design can vary slightly from batch to batch. Please do not expect every single one to look exactly like the pictures. These are handmade creations, not mass produced to be identical. Although I aim to keep the design and color the same, each bar does vary some. I love the variations and I hope you do too.

I also create pottery potpourri, other ceramic items, jewelry, scarves and where ever else my artistic heart leads me :)

I was first introduced the the craft of soap making when I was quite young and have been developing my skills over many years. You can find our products locally in some shops and also at some art & crafts shows. Our products are also sold in Honduras.

I do offer soap favors for weddings, showers, birthday parties, etc. As well, I offer many of my ceramic creations for weddings, showers, etc. Please contact me if you are interested in a special order for your celebration, keep in mind cold process soaps take 6 weeks to cure and ceramic items will need a few months of lead time too. For special/custom orders the amount of time need to complete the order will vary depending on what it is and how many. For items such as my mushrooms, the amount of time needed increases. For wedding favors of 100 or more, I usually request 3 - 6 months, depending on the amount. Please keep in mind that the reason for the amount of time, is also because I am producing product, filling orders, etc while creating your special order. As well, as what time of year it is, as different times of the year I am extremely busy. So, please let me know when you need the order by. The sooner you contact me for a special order, the better :)

You can check for craft shows we will be attending and up coming classes on our Facebook page.

Lip balms and other bath products which are sold in my shop are made with oils and butters which can be temperamental with the weather and they DO NOT like extreme heat or extreme cold. So please consider this when placing your order and be watching out for your delivery so that you can bring it indoors as soon as possible. We kindly ask that if you cannot be there for your delivery, that you please make appropriate arrangements with your postal carrier.

Due to the nature of our products, we can not be held responsible for items that may melt if left on a doorstep, or mailbox in the heat.

We want our wonderful products to arrive to you in the same great condition, as they were when they left :) BUT JUST IN CASE: What to do if you receive your order and your items are a little soft or even melted.
Lip Balms: simply place them in a cool, dark place such as a refrigerator in their upright position and they should be as good as new within the hour.
Body Butters, other lotions or whipped soaps: place in refrigerator for 15 minutes, if necessary give them a stir.
Soaps: do not place in refrigerator, allow to sit at room temperature until they have hardened. Do not remove the shrink wrap from glycerin soaps until it has hardened again.

Additional policies and FAQs
Here at Dancing Garden, we strive to make the best soap, lotions, lip balms and other bath products, unique jewelry and other crafts. We only use the highest quality ingredients and oils. Cold Process and Hot Process Soaps (Including Olive Oil Soaps, Castor Oil Soaps, Casile Soap, Cream Soaps, etc) are made ahead of time due to having to cure, some of the other items are fresh made per order. Normal turn around time is with 1-2 days, however depending on the items the turn around time can take a few days. We make all our products in small batches to insure the freshest product and are continually restocking our products.

************IMPORTANT INFORMATION***************
I strive to make a high quality luxurious soap with the finest ingredients. For fragrance I use essential oils and fragrance oils. I may purchase the same product from different suppliers around the world. I pick some of my own herbs and I buy natural and/or organic products. I have not had anyone report any reactions to my soap, but this does not mean that I can guarantee that you will not have a reaction. Everyone's skin is different and you must test soaps just as you would anything else, especially if you know you have sensitive skin or allergies.

Those of you that have sensitive skin or allergies, please test the soap on a small section for a few days prior to using all over.

I can not guarantee you will not have a reaction and I am not liable for any such reaction. So please if you know you have sensitive skin or allergies, test the product as described and discontinue use if you have a reaction or consult with your doctor prior to use of the product.

Within our listings we do try to explain some of the benefits of the ingredients and properties of these ingredients used in a product. However, we do not make any claims of healing any skin ailments.

Since all the soaps are handmade sometimes the colors and design may vary from the pictures each batch takes on a unique personality :)
