Combing Chemistry and Natural Medicine

When my son was born back in 2011, I desperately needed a creative hobby to keep my sanity when I decided to be a stay-at-home mom. Before getting pregnant, I had dreamed of practicing natural medicine, and even into my son's first year, I was studying Chemistry at the University of North Texas. Since science is fun and exciting to me, formulating different soaps for specific purposes just seemed like the natural thing to experiment with. Even if the only ones who used my soaps were family, we'd all be better off, I thought, since we'd be reducing our exposure to SLS and a host of other chemicals found in regular soaps and shampoos.

Well, here we are, 2 years after selling my first bar of soap here on Etsy, and our business is flourishing both online and off. Soap making has allowed me to stay at home with my special needs preschooler, which is truly invaluable.

We're constantly looking for opportunities to better serve our customers, and I especially love custom order requests. Being able to create soaps for people with specific allergies and sensitivities makes me feel like I'm doing more for their skin health than I ever could dream of doing as a regular doctor or dermatologist (since they're governed by so many rules, limiting their access and use of natural remedies/products).

Soap-making combines both chemistry and natural health care, which lured me into this business. I love formulating natural soaps, but most of all, I love hearing about the difference my soap has made in someone’s life.

    Soap making combines both my love for natural medicine with my experience in Chemistry, and allows me to stay home with my son, who is a very active, but special-needs, preschooler. Thank you for supporting small businesses like ours!

Welcome to Mother Earth's Soaps!

As a stay at home mom, I needed a hobby and after long hours in Chemistry labs, I acquired a fondness for mixing things in precise quantities and observing the results. Soap making, you could say, was the logical conclusion.

All my soaps are natural and completely homemade. I offer a wide array of mixtures, each with specific uses in mind. From plain lye soap to shaving soap, Mother Earth's Soaps is here to help you stay clean--naturally!

Don't see what you're looking for? Contact me! I'd be excited to tackle any custom order you may have in mind.

Payment
We currently accept credit/debit cards, PayPal, Etsy gift cards, checks, and money orders. Payment via check or money order must be received within 14 days of placing the order.
Shipping
All orders paid for on the same day will be shipped together when possible. Orders are shipped next business day via USPS First Class (2 to 8 business days) or USPS Flat Rate (1 to 5 business days).

Expedited shipping is available upon request (all listings should be updated to reflect these other shipping options. If not, please let me know!) Orders of 3 or more bars automatically ship expedited.

All orders include tracking and delivery confirmation. We use a third-party shipping service to generate our labels, so if your order does not update to include your tracking number, please let us know right away so we can resolve the issue.

At our discretion, we may use signature confirmation to ensure that your package is traceable, all the way to the person who received it. We may do this for larger orders, addresses the USPS says is unverifiable, apartment / university addresses, and forwarding service addresses.
Refunds and Exchanges
We accept returns for any reason within 30 days of receipt. At our discretion, we may accept returns outside of this time-frame. Due to the nature of the items, please return only those unused and unopened. In response to a large amount of packages being refused or eventually returned by the post office, we're implementing the following return policy. We reserve the ability to waive any charges on a case-by-case basis.

Seller-faulted returns (incorrect item, not received by the last date of the delivery window, etc) are eligible for a pre-paid shipping label to expedite the return. All charges associated with the returned items will be refunded (product price + any shipping charged).

For discretionary returns (no longer wanted/needed) return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. Original shipping charges will not be refunded. We also reserve the ability to withhold up to 20% of the purchase price (as a restocking fee) if the items are returned in the same condition as shipped more than 30 days after delivery. However, for items returned used (at any time), we may withhold up to 50% of the purchase price.

Packages refused or eventually returned by the post office will be treated as a discretionary return (except, of course, for those that did not arrive by the last date of the delivery window).
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom Orders have never been easier! Tell us what you're looking for in a soap - a hand soap, shaving soap, or perhaps a scented soap, and we'll formulate a batch just for you! There is no longer a minimum order size for custom soaps but larger orders will receive a greater discount.

Wholesale orders are also welcome, but are only available to customers with a valid tax id. There is no minimum order amount for wholesale purchases.
