Announcement   Heya! Welcome to my little corner of Etsy, full of handmade soap, lipbalm, and knit/crochet pieces! For my soaps & lipbalms, I try to use only organic ingredients where possible, but I also try to use local materials; sometimes I have to choose between the two, and some things just aren't available in organic form. However, *all* my soap and balm ingredients are free of non-essential additives and processing.

I've been doing crochet, knitting, soap, and lip balm as a hobby for many years now. People kept saying I should offer this stuff for sale and eventually I became convinced and so here it is.

I am happy to take special requests but please understand that for soap there is a waiting period of at least 2 weeks for it to properly saponify (cure). Thank you!

About

The Evolution of a Ferret Crafter

Legend has it that Harena's Handmade Soap was created when a bolt of unearthly lightning from one of Nikola Tesla's high-voltage electrical experiments unintentionally struck a radioactive spider which was in the process of biting a ferret who was tripping on pixie-stix.

Legend has no idea, however, where "And other things too!" came from; they just quietly showed up one day on the front doorstep inside an urn bearing the label "for services rendered". Legend plans one day to go on a quest to discover what this all means and whether there are any more pixie-stix.

    Harena Atria was born in a CFS Latin class in 1977. At the time, she did have crochet skills & latent knit skills but had no idea of her destiny as a soap & lipbalm creator. This occurred when she burst forth as a fully formed ferret crafter in 2008

Heya! Welcome to my little corner of Etsy!

I've been doing crochet, knitting, soap, and lip balm as a hobby for many years now. People kept saying I should offer this stuff for sale so I have finally been coerced into doing so ;)

I like to keep stuff as natural/organic as possible because who needs all those harsh chemicals on/in your skin?

Currently, you may cancel an order at any time. If the order has already shipped, send it back when you receive it and I will credit you for the merchandise cost when I receive it. If I made a mistake with the order (defective or incorrect merchandise), I'll pay the shipping both ways as well.

There's no arbitrary time-limit on returns, but please check with me if you've had the item for more than 10 days or if you have used it at all.
