5 out of 5 stars

Wonderful customer service; arrived quickly and without issue. Scent is of course very similar to what I remember for the oatmeal, milk, and honey soap, so that's great. I wish these candles came with some sort of top to keep dust and debris out of when not in use, but that's a fairly minor complaint.

Did you know the inspiration for the look of our Black Raspberry Vanilla Soap was the galaxy? Here's a closeup next to the Nebula of Carini taken by NASA!

About

The Story Behind Our Name

We started The Pig and the Peacock as an outlet for our creative passions and chose our name to honor our grandparents. Growing up we spent our summers and holidays on our grandparents’ farm in Georgia. Our grandfather raised pigs and, to add some class to the place, our grandmother had peacocks. Some of our fondest memories are from those summers on the farm.

We started making gift baskets for family and friends. Next, we started making bath salts, then soaps, and the rest is history. We find that the process of making the soaps, salts, etc allow us to express our creative sides in a way that we cannot in our “day jobs”.

Creating handmade skin loving bath and body products is our passion. The Pig and the Peacock make handmade soap, lotions, soy candles and tarts, sugar scrubs and butters. We use all natural ingredients and source locally as much as possible. All of our products are made by us at Jenny's home in Dallas, TX. We hope you enjoy the products we create as much as we enjoyed creating them.

We recently participated in the pilot launch of Fund on Etsy and our DejaVino Wine Bottle Candle crowdfunding project was successfully funded!! To find out more about our DejaVino Wine Bottle Candles look for the section in our shop listings.

We are also members of Etsy Dallas, and are responsible for charitable events and community outreach for the team. Through this position we have launched an annual event for Girls Inc Dallas raising over $4500 in donations and school supplies. We have also partnered with Genesis Women's Shelter and the Ronald McDonald House to help spread the handmade movement while taking steps to improve our community and enrich the lives of others.

  • Jenny

    Owner, Soapmaker, Lotion Maker

    Since we are sisters we do almost everything together-from brainstorming soap designs to creating new scents. We do have our strengths though, with Jenny making most of the lotions and taking care of most the shipping and inventory tracking.

  • Sabrina

    Owner, Soapmaker, Candlemaker

    Beyond the shared responsibilities of soapmaking and running the business, while Jenny is busy making lotions, Sabrina makes all of the candles. She is also more often the voice of the Pig and Peacock via social media and our blog.

  • Opie

    Supervisor

    Our dogs are our family and diligently stand outside the puppy gate and and watch us work (mainly to make sure we take breaks to give them treats). Opie, the senior dog, is mostly responsible for supervision of soapmaking production.

  • Champ

    Shipping/Receiving, Ninja

    Champy loves to help, but he can only do so much with those paws. Champ likes to carry in all the packages and shopping bags of supplies we buy for Pig and Peacock (for the price of a cookie, of course).

Frequently asked questions

Care instructions

All wax based products (candles, wax tarts, and lotion bars) can melt in higher temperatures. We often refrain from shipping some items based on the temperature in TX. If you order them during unseasonably higher temperatures in your area and they come melted, place them in the refrigerator for 30 minutes, and they'll return to normal.

Custom and personalized orders

Custom order ETA's vary and are subject to the size and scope of the request. Please contact us directly and we will give you a quote.

Coupons

Coupons cannot be applied to orders that have been previously placed.

My soap looks different from the picture?

The Pig and the Peacock strive to make high quality soap using only use the best essential oils, fragrance oils, ingredients and butters. Since all the soaps are handmade sometimes the colors may vary from what's pictured and each batch may vary slightly as well.

Summer Shipping

Due to hot weather (it's almost always hot in Texas after all), during shipping, soaps may accumulate condensation. If that happens, unwrap them and let them sit at room temperature for about an hour. During hot weather, we may suspend the sales and shipping of certain soaps, lotion bars, and candles.
