Announcement   Welcome to Not My Tree! I specialize in natural, handmade soaps and body care, as well as sewn accessories to pamper yourself.

Local customers: if I see you frequently and would like to make arrangements to pick up your purchase or have me drop it off to you, use the code LOCAL at checkout and the shipping cost will be waived.

Soaps are made from scratch in small batches, so I know every ingredient that goes into each bar. I don't use melt-and-pour bases, artificial fragrance oils or synthetic dyes. I started making soap because I wanted the best, purest bars for my family, and I continue that line of reasoning into the products I list in my shop.

** Please see individual listings regarding shipping times for products. Some products are made-to-order. Thank you! **

Fabric items in my shop are a combination of new and repurposed materials. Your treasure will be a little off the beaten path (and not part of everyone's tree!) and it contributes to protecting our environment - and our trees! - by re-using and recycling existing materials. Most items here are crafted with both new and recycled fabrics. In the rare case that something is created with all-new fabric, I will state that in the listing.

Ways to reach me:

~ Convo me through Etsy. I'd love to hear from you if you love something you see, have a question about an item, are interested in a custom order, or would like to set up a trade.
~Browse my blog (www.notmytreeblog.blogspot.com), which features tutorials to inspire you to upcycle and recycle some of your own wardrobe. You can do it! You can contact me through there, too.

So far so good with this one! I bought this for a trip next week with lots of walking involved but have been trying it out already during an unusually hot spell here and so far it has definitely been a little miracle, no horrible chaffing or heat rashes from 'chub rub'. Definitely recommending this one!

This was a bit of an impulse buy for me because I already have more lip balms than anyone could need but so glad I got this! It smells so good and genuinely keeps my lips moisturised for hours! I can't wait to order more of these!

About

Saving the planet, one bar of soap and discarded textile at a time.

Because superheroes come in all forms, most of them imperfect.

I don't know if I can claim the superhero title yet. But I have the imperfect part down pretty perfectly.

I sew (almost everything) using recycled textiles. I make soap (I DREAM about soap). I am a perfectionist, an idealist, and a woman.

In a nutshell: I am a mother, a wife, a teacher, a seamstress and a soaper. Over the course of a year, I came to realize (through some very tough lessons) that my job, rather than being an obstacle to my creativity, was actually a catalyst for it. Now being several months removed from a series of unfortunate events, I am a better and more fulfilled...everything. I have a razor-sharp focus and am more committed than ever to building an earth-friendly, sustainable part-time business, creating things I love using materials I believe in without the stress and burden of past decisions weighing on me.

Welcome to my carefully-constructed, hard-won corner of the world. I'm glad you're here.

    I love fabric, soap, dogs, water, reading and quiet. I can't stand willful ignorance, hypocrisy and death metal music.

Frequently asked questions

Do you have any current coupon codes, discounts or sales?

Current sales, discounts and coupon codes are always listed at the beginning of my shop announcement. They change frequently and are often seasonal, so please check back often!

What do you mean when you say your soaps are natural?

My soaps contain ingredients that are found in nature: oils, essential oils (for scent), food products, and clays or botanicals (for color). I do not use any synthetic fragrance oils or artificial colorants (including lab-dyed micas). The ONLY lab-created material I use in my soap is lye (which is used in the making of ALL soaps at some point). While I could make my own lye by burning hardwood ashes in my back yard, the lye created in a lab is of consistent strength and quality. My products are as natural as they possibly can be. There are no hidden ingredients. If you have any questions, I'd be more than happy to answer them!
