Announcement   Here in the upper Midwest, fall has defintely arrived. Holidays are approaching and this is a great time to get a jump on gift giving for everyone,

We have added Cold Process soaps, made in the traditional manner, with premium fats, oils and lye. We also have a line of our popular glycerin soaps. What ever the type of soap we sell here at Lavish Handcrafted, remember they are SOAP made of oils which nourish your skin, not compressed detergent bars, which are what you will most likely get in the grocery store aisles. So while our soaps are "pretty" they are meant to be used!

People often don't want to use the "pretty soaps", but remember, they are all great for everyday use. If you want to see the colors vary and change through use, and have the most moisturizing soap out there, try our cold process soaps. I have several of them listed on Etsy, but also have many new ones which haven't made it online. Convo us for more information.

We often receive special orders for Weddings, Anniversaries, Showers, and Birthdays and many other occasions (we have several soaps with special bulk pricings for parties, or can offer discounts for large purchases of any bars) . Also think for personal use, like showers, bathtubs (fun soaps can make bath time more enticing for the kids), and the kitchen sink! Yes, at the kitchen sink you can use one of our coffee soaps to take the stink out of onion-hands or use the additional scrubbies for those gardening grimed hands!

If you have a special style of soap in mind, message us and we'll see if it's doable. During off seasons, I may not have certain "seasonal" products displayed on Etsy, but I do have many available for the asking.

We thank each an every one of our customers for their purchases throughout the year and I try to do what is right.

Regarding shipping:

I try to get your order out as soon as possible, often the next day. Special orders may take several days up to a couple of weeks to make, package and send. All of my orders are sent out USPS, either First Class or Priority Mail. I've had very good service with them, even during the peak pre-holiday rush most packages get to their destinations in anywhere from 1-5 days. Priority Mail is generally 1-3 days. But, as we all know, weather and other things happen so packages could be delayed.

Your typical soap order is charged shipping based on the purchase of one soap in the box.. That includes when you order multiple soaps that tally up postage fairly fast. If it overestimates your entire shipping by more than a dollar, I DO and WILL refund you the difference back into your Paypal account as soon as I have the official calculation on the total weight of your package.

Remember it's significantly cheaper to ship multiple bars of soap, so think ahead and keep some on hand for hostess gifts or for that time when you need a nice little gift but don't have the time to go out and look for something. And, of course, don't forget to get some special soaps just for yourself!

These soaps are beautiful - love the vibrant color and the pretty flower design. Arrived very quickly too and included some awesome freebies. Thank you so much! These soaps are great for sensitive skin. We love the Energy scent as well. Good stuff!

As always, I am overjoyed with my order from this shop. I got some of these Christmas Forest soaps as gifts, but can't help to hold and smell them each day to make me happy!!

Welcome to Lavish Handcrafted Soaps. We have been working with glycerin, goats milk, shea, coconut, and other quality soaps for over ten years. What started as a hobby has overtaken our home, and now you benefit by purchasing our products! While we have an extensive product line, we are always open for suggestions and requests. See our complete list of fragrances below (it is expanding rapidly).

PLEASE MESSAGE US BEFORE PURCHASING F YOU ARE INTERESTED IN CUSTOM SOAPS. Please note that there will be a $1 SURCHARGE PER BAR OF CUSTOM SOAP, under a quantity of 6 identical soaps of a "regular" size and under 10 for "small/guest sized soaps. Think of it as baking one cookie versus baking a batch of cookies...it's a lot more work! Animal embeddeds in custom soaps are subject to availability.

Our soaps are also available in organic, through special order. There is a $1.50 per bar surcharge for the extra expenses with the organic products, plus the $1 custom order charge per bar if it is for less than 6 of the same style.

We do discounts for bulk orders! 10+ soaps are 15% off

Exclusions may apply to listings with bulk pricing discounts already applied (i.e. "set of three soaps")

Message us if you're interested in a bulk order, and we can make a separate listing for you with the appropriate discounts and shipping costs.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
Shipping
Message us for bulk orders, and we will give you a shipping quote based on the weight of the soap. (Save more in shipping by purchasing more soap! It gets exponentially cheaper!)

International shipping will vary according to location and package weight. Please message us for a quote. Please note that international shipping STARTS at about $18, and is best shipped through Priority Mail International flat-rate boxes. According to your location, please allow up to a month for delivery.

The small flat-rate box that is $18 fits about 4-6 regular-sized bars of soap, but won't fit any of our bulky soaps like our Ducky Soaps. Those will fit in the medium flat rate boxes, however that will generally bump the shipping cost up to $38. We'd love to ship things internationally for cheaper, but unfortunately it gets pretty pricey as soap is heavy.
Refunds and Exchanges
Disclaimer: The glycerine based soap melts at 180 degrees, and prolonged exposure to heat can cause the scent to dissipate. If you live in a hot climate and order during warm months, we cannot completely guarantee the product’s quality at arrival, however chances are that everything will be just fine! Additionally extreme cold during shipping can cause layered soaps to split at the layer lines. In both cases, the soap is safe to use.
