About My Shop

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my web shop!

I have always been creative person, but never really found an outlet for continuous artistic expression until I was introduced to soap casting by a friend in 2007. I loved the thought of creating something that was not only beautiful, but was also usable! I began by making simple-shaped bars for regular use and have branched into making more complex designs.

I love my job and I believe it shows in all of my work. Every item in my shop is handcrafted with premium ingredients. I use only high-quality fragrance oils and reputable suppliers for everything. My family and friends get to test everything out before I add it to my shop for public sale, so please be assured everything is top notch!

I've sold soap to thousands of customers around the globe. I love custom orders! If you need some special gifts that can't be duplicated, then look no further. If you have an idea and would like to discuss a custom order, please just contact me and I'd be happy to help!

I'm always available to answer any questions that you have. My direct email is alissa [!at] or you can message me through etsy.

Thank you!

    Born in March, a Pisces, I've always been a creative and artistic person. In 2007, a friend showed me the soap-making process & I took to it like a duck to water! I enjoy the endless variety of fragrance and design and craft every product with care.
