Only disappointing thing was that i used it up kind of fast, I ended up using like a third of the jar the first use.

Fragrant Beauty

The Bathtub Bakery was established on January 1, 2012. My goal was to create a line of high quality skin care products with a touch of whimsy.

Since that time my product line has grown from a handful of soaps to over 200 skin care products. Lip Balms, Sugar Scrubs, Body Butters, Lotions and Party Favors scented with fragrances that spark pleasant memories.

My photos above outline one of my favorite creations - the free form loaf soap. First I scour my stash of bits and bobs of soaps left over from previous projects. They get grated and curled and chopped and such.

The bits and bobs go into the mold, in this case the binder soap is white scented and poured over the bits.

Then un-mold and slice. Slicing is just like opening a present, you do not know what you have until you see what is inside. It is great fun, pretty and good for your skin too.

When I am not whipping up my soaps and concoctions I love to travel and spend time with my twin grandsons.

Thank you for visiting my shop.

All my bath and body products are made in small batches as a result colors can vary from the one pictured. Fragrance oils that contain vanilla (and most of my fragrance oils do) can darken the product over time. This in no way affects the quality of the soap or lotion some fragrances darken faster, some slower and some not at all.

Why use Fragrance Oils rather than Essential Oils ? FOs are synthetic (but perfectly skin-safe) fragrance blends, and EOs are natural essential oils distilled from the plants and fruits themselves. FOs tend to last a little longer, and are generally less expensive.

Why do I use fragrance oils? Well, first of all, I wouldn't use or offer these artificial fragrances if they were in any way harmful to you, your family, or the earth. Many essential oils, contrary to popular belief, can be very irritating to the skin. Some can even aggravate lots of serious medical conditions. In addition the harvest of many essential oils is having a devastating ecological effect, and I really want no part of killing off the last of the sandalwood trees in the name of smelling pretty. I'd much rather get my fragrance from a clean, conscious, animal-free lab. And of course most of my scents are not the scents found in plants for example - Blueberries Yes ! Blueberry Muffins No :)

My goal is for you to be 100% delighted with your order. Because skin care and scent choices are incredibly individual and personal, if you are unsure about your selections, I encourage you to order smaller sizes, and then come back for more when you've found your favorite scents and products.

I use nut oils in many of my products. So if you have severe nut allergies, I don't recommend shopping with me. The same equipment is often used for most of my products, and I can't promise that there won't be cross contamination.
