I have purchased from this shop multiple times and LOVE this lotion. I got the Lilac last time and it smelled so good that Mom wanted it this time around. :-D

The soap is beautiful to look at and the scent is delicious! Arrived quickly with pretty wrapping, and I gave it as a gift. It was much appreciated.

About

Soaping...

I love making handmade soap...
The focus on making something useful and even necessary, yet having the freedom to put a creative touch to the product, greatly appeals to me.

I've been an avid gardener for many years, also an RN and in the nursing profession for 35+ years. In 2001, my then, creative "hobby" of making soap, started to expand, and I've since watched it develop into a wonderful journey. Soap making has always been a place for comfortable creativity and that creativity, gradually developed into a steady, enjoyable business.

Most of the time I consider myself a one woman operation, but my husband often helps with weighing and prepping the oils and is a steady companion at Art Shows.

Several highlights in my soaping "career": In 2011, Williams-Sonoma made a large purchase order for my "felted soap", in which I had to recruit beyond my husband!
Also in 2013, my soap was voted "Best in Show" in competition, at the Handcrafted Soap and Cosmetic Guild, at it's annual convention.

Etsy has opened a whole new avenue of displaying and selling my products.... so for now, I'll just keep on creating and enjoying it.

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

I make 2 soap bar sizes. My loaf slice bar is 3.5 in X 2.5 in X 1 in and my flat rectangular bar is 3 in X 2.5 in X 1.5 in

Care instructions

For a longer lasting hard bar of soap, keep out of a direct stream of water and use some type of draining system, so that your soap does not constantly pool in water.

Wholesale availability

I no longer wholesale my products...
If you are looking for bulk soap for weddings, showers, or other events, I do offer "soap loaves" that are cut or uncut.
Look under ITEMS offered.

Custom and personalised orders

--I will be happy to make custom orders, just contact me & ask.

--If it is a custom order for soap...you must purchase at least 4 or 8 bars (sizes of soap mold). I can blend and create something different, but it must be an essential oil, fragrance oil, or color that you see somewhere in my shop. The custom order soap will need to be ordered at least 2-3 weeks before needed...mostly for drying purposes.

Gift wrapping and packaging

SOAP PACKAGING: All of my soaps are individually packaged in a clear shrink wrap band, so that you can see the design. Both ends of the soap are partially opened, so that you can enjoy the scent. Each soap contains a label with title and ingredient listing.
GIFT: If this is a gift, please "check" gift option. Add your message and your recipient will receive your typed message without a priced invoice.
