Been using this soap for awhile now and love that the scent still remains as well as the softness it provides!
Why we love making things you love.
The pages of her new book smelled good. A scent almost like chocolate, in my youthful opinion. She purchased it on a whim and carried it home with excitement and hope: a new hobby presented untold opportunities and the freedom to learn. Learning and trying and failing and learning all over again were beautiful to her.
It only became a small hobby before it's end when she moved on to small cards bearing utterances of love. Glorious, small notes from one heart to another that I found in my lunch sacks, my backpack, my books. I didn't rue the end of the soap hobby in lieu of her abundant adoration. She wanted to hand them out the way heavy skies hand out rain drops.
My mother continued her hobby-hopping until cancer ate her energy then burdened her body more than it could handle. Her lovely spirit persists, inspiring smiles and tears alike. More than that she has forever instilled in me a love of learning, trying, doing. From our barefoot walks through mud after storms to her endless patience and gentle guidance.
I aspire to create things I love that, in some small way, make other people feel loved. The entire process of creating Radiant Fettle products from the formulation of recipes and actual creation to the anticipation during the cure time and final testing all give me a wonderful sense of fulfillment. Knowing that other people enjoy them is wonderful and uplifting.
I founded Radiant Fettle because I enjoy making things to spoil myself in healthy ways and I want to share these things with the world.
Owner, Maker, Designer, Curious Mote
After storms I walked through the mud collected in the alleys. Using a small, plastic pail I toted it to the second floor apartment in which my family lived; straight through to the balcony, a small haven, on which I learned of my love of creating.

Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment must be received in full before we will ship any products.
Times are tough and we know full well that sometimes you need a pick-me-up but can't quite fit it into the budget. In an effort to spread our love we are willing to negotiate barters. Please remember: we may not be able to come to an agreement, but we will certainly try our best. Strike up a conversation with us and we'll see if we can work something out.
In addition to offering bartering we plan to offer a pay-it-forward option. This will allow customers to tack on the cost of an extra product to their order. They will receive their regular order while we set aside their pay-it-forward item(s) until someone unable to pay or barter requests to receive it. We will add this option in the near future, after we have established the listings for our regular products.
Thank you for your interest & understanding.
Refunds and Exchanges
We want you to love your Radiant Fettle products and will gladly work with you to the best of our ability to make that happen.
Please know that our soaps are handmade and will bear testament to that fact in the character and charm they each exhibit. This means that our products vary - not only from batch to batch but from bar to bar, as well, so they may not look exactly like the pictures in the listings or like other Radiant Fettle products made with the same recipe.
We gladly allow one exchange per purchased product. If you are still dissatisfied at that point we will happily offer a full refund.
Additional policies and FAQs
Our ingredients are listed as they exist in their raw forms; after undergoing the saponification process (what makes soap soap) the oils bond with the sodium hydroxide (lye) to form new compounds. We feel that listing raw ingredients provides transparency and a clear understanding of what our products consist of for anyone who may read the label.
