On Etsy since 2018

All natural handmade soap, wash/dish cloths, face wipes and more. No nasties, just the good stuff.

I’m on a journey to reduce my waste, use less unnecessary chemicals, leave a smaller footprint and live a more minimal life.

All products are handcrafted with love in small batches in Havelock North using fabulous 100% natural, nourishing ingredients. My soap bars are loaded with nourishing oils like olive and coconut, as well as luxurious butters like cocoa and shea. Scented only with pure essential oils and naturally colored with clays and/or botanicals.. No nasties, just the good stuff. ❣️

Thank you for visiting, I hope you find something you like. If you have any questions or would like to visit my home-based pop-uP shop please just let me know.

Frequently asked questions
How can you customise knitted cloth orders?

I can make cloths, make up removal wipes and scrubbies to order in a wide selection of colours. Most of my yarn is cotton, but I also have some bamboo and linen, and I use hemp twine in the scrubbies. I source most of my yarn from Trademe and it is pre-owned i.e. not store bought new, this helps to reduce the environmental impact of manufacture by sourcing ‘second hand’ goods. The hemp twine I purchase is Fair Trade.

Do you make soap from scratch or do you use ‘melt and pour’ pre-made bases?

All of my soap is made from scratch using natural ingredients. I do not use any palm oil, SLS, artificial fragrances or other unnecessary ingredients in my soap. No nasties, just the good stuff.

Can you custom make a batch of soap for me?

Yes absolutely! If you have a particular type of soap you’re interested in, or need soap for a special occasion e.g. wedding favours, branded for your bed & breakfast, for a fundraiser, or just a flavour that you love, please get in touch and we can work out details.

Do you ship outside New Zealand?

I ship to Australia, but it is likely cost prohibitive to ship elsewhere. But ask, you never know!

Wholesale availability

I prefer to supply entire batches at a wholesale rate rather than individual items. I keep my retail prices low and my margins tight so the items are affordable for everyone. I only make soap in small batches but can offer a special price for an entire batch. Please enquire if you are interested.

Care instructions

- All of my knitted/crocheted items can be machine washed and dried on the clothesline or in drier.
- Soap, shampoo and conditioner bars are best left to dry out between uses so they last longer. I recommend sitting them on a pumice stone or other free draining dish. Pumice stones are available free with all soap orders.

What if I'm rural delivery?

No problems at all, simply click on the shipping options available and select rural delivery!

Can I pick up my order?

Yes absolutely! I have a contactless collection point as well as a COVID tracker QR code. This means all items can be collected simply and safely. Use the coupon LOCALDELIVERY at check out to waive shipping costs.
