Announcement    I recently combined all of my crafts into this one shop, and changed its name to reflect that I've now got a little of everything: wax melts, soaps, bath/body items, jewelry, and craft supplies.
All current bath/body and soap items are on clearance, so I can make room on my shelves for the new fall and winter items I have planned. Soapmakers have to work several months ahead!

About BrandisCraftsnGifts

Sales 498
On Etsy since 2014

We're proud producers of creatively scented bath, body, and wax products.

I started making soap in 2007 when my then-infant son was having excema problems. It's something I enjoyed doing, I saw the benefits, and I decided to keep doing it off and on for years. I finally decided to pursue it as a real business instead of a hobby at the beginning of 2018, so you'll be seeing more and more goodies showing up in the shop!

Frequently asked questions
Why don't we take exchanges/returns/etc?

For bath/body products, it is a hygiene issue. However, if there is something wrong with the order, please contact us within 3 days of receipt and the item must be returned within 7 days. We cannot accept exchanges without the original item being returned to us in new, un-used condition. Pictures will be required, to show damage or the problem with the item. Exchanges MUST be pre-authorized or they will not be accepted. If an item is sent back to us partially used, or without pre-authorization, there will be no refund.

For digital items, it is industry standard to deny returns/refunds after an item has been downloaded. If you are having any problems with a digital product, please contact me.

We do not refund for buyer's remorse.

Coupons

We are aware there are apps out there that hunt for coupon codes. Please understand that if you checkout using a coupon code that is not actually applicable to your situation, the order will be cancelled and refunded. We do offer occasional coupons - keep an eye on our Facebook page for those!

Will my item look exactly like the one in the picture?

For vintage items and supplies, YES.

For soaps and wax melts, different batches with the same scent may have a different appearance due to variations in colorant lots. However, the colors are generally the same, and if something changes significantly we will change the photo.

Digital item previews may not include all items included in the download, but will never include something that isn't! Sometimes in digital previews I combine items into clusters which aren't included in the form shown, but all individual items will be there so you can recreate it.

What are the ingredients in the glycerin-based and novelty soaps?

Our glycerin soaps are made from a base which includes soap, and does NOT include any synthetic detergents. Our glycerin base does include propylene glycol, which is considered generally recognized as safe by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and it is used as an humectant (to draw moisture into the skin) in soap. A full ingredient list is included in each product listing.

LYE?? There's LYE in the handmade soap??

Some people seem bothered by the fact that we use lye in our soap. The fact is, you CAN NOT make soap without lye. Soap is, by definition, the result of the chemical reaction between sodium hydroxide (lye) and the oils used in the soap. If you're buying "soap" that doesn't include lye, you're not buying soap. You're buying a detergent. We don't sell detergent.

Shipping Information

Shipping cost includes handling.

Orders are processed daily, but shipments are only taken to the post office Monday - Thursday. I try to re-use as much packing material as possible, such as boxes and padding, air-bubbles, etc so that we can keep costs down for both of us.

Please be certain your address is correct during checkout. If your package is returned to us as undeliverable due to an incorrect address, we will have to charge you again for shipping to send it out again, otherwise the order will be cancelled and a refund of the purchase price, minus shipping, will be offered.

At this time, we are only shipping physical items within the USA.

Digital items can be purchased by anyone.

Care instructions

All of our soap is made to be used - even the decorative and novelty types. It is best to leave glycerin soaps in their plastic wrapping until ready to use, so they won't get what's called "glycerin dew" on them - small beads of water and glycerin that form because glycerin draws moisture to itself. Handmade soap may be left in its wrapper or unwrapped, according to your preference.

All soap must be allowed to dry fully between uses, and should not be left sitting in a wet soap dish! We suggest using a hanging soap saver bag, a soap net, or other similar product to allow the soap to drip-dry between uses and keep it from sitting in a puddle.

Custom and personalized orders

At this time, we are not offering custom or personalized orders.
