    I ordered a bunch of random soaps from this shop because their reject soaps seemed like an affordable way to sample some different scents. I threw one full price Fancy Camping scented soap in my cart since there weren't any rejects of that one available at the time. I thought my husband might like that one. I was NOT disappointed. It smells amazing and brings back such great memories of camping and renn faires! All the soaps look and smell fabulous! They came carefully and beautifully wrapped with the sweetest note and adorable little goodies. It would be really easy to gift these with minimal effort. This Etsy seller goes above and beyond to make a buyer feel like their business is appreciated. I was impressed with the fast shipping too. I will definitely be back to order more! Thank you so much!

About FictitiousSoaps

Sales 68
On Etsy since 2015

tl;dr: I learned a new skill and ran with it

So what happened was in the fall of 2019 I got weirdly into watching Royalty Soaps videos (dat ADHD hyperfixation). I decided I was going to give handmade Christmas gifts that year so I learned how to make soap myself.

Turns out it's a whole lot of fun! I've learned so much in the year and a half or so since I started soaping and I only get more and more into it. I really, truly love making soap, but I can't possibly use as much as I make, and it does get expensive! This is how Fictitious Soaps, my passion project, my darling unicorn baby, was born.

Fictitious is my attempt to build a self-sustaining creative outlet. I'm not trying to get rich; I just want to keep doing this one thing that makes me happy and gives me a sense of accomplishment. This is my therapy, my Zen space. I get a big ol' hit of dopamine every time someone favorites or purchases a soap (and being first in line at the post office is also unexpectedly gratifying).

Fictitious is, in addition to being committed to producing quality handcrafted, vegan cold-process soap made with no harsh detergents, environmentally conscious! I package and ship in primarily biodegradable, recyclable materials. I'm working on swapping my cellophane tape for paper packing tape, which is the only part of my packaging that is made of plastic. I do include small toys in most orders, so if you'd prefer not to receive one please note that in your order comments.

If you want quality eco-friendly, vegan soap made lovingly in microbatches by a neurodivergent WOC, this is the shop for you. Thanks for stopping by. 💕✨🦄
