Once upon a soap...

I always loved experimenting with new bath and body products and admired the creativity and courage of others who have started their own journeys as business owners. Life of a stay at home mom is more than just diapers, dinners and bedtime stories!

My daughters are an inspiration for me. They're super creative and always ask about everything around them. Their ideas are so "craftsy." My clients mean the world to me, they're like my family, and I enjoy their project requests. Every single order means something to me. It's a personal journey and I feel like am always sending a part of me out to the world.

I remember the first time I experimented with melt and pour soap and I thought it was the coolest thing in the world. I feel exactly the same way today. There's nothing more beautiful than dried rose petals, lavender or the smell of essential oils. And the butters...clays...extracts...I could go on forever.

Shop policies

At Olivenar, you will find unique, handcrafted and custom formulated items, that were mostly inspired by family, friends, and customers like you. Every soap has its story, and every soap is an inspiration. I love that my customers do not hesitate to leave me notes such as "one day your soap is going to be famous" or "don't ever give up even if you stumble upon an obstacle". I truly appreciate EVERY single order, no matter how big or how small. They're all important to my philosophy.

Scrubs are usually shipped within 1-3 business days.
Handmade Soaps are shipped usually within 3-5 business days. Handmade soaps require a certain amount of time for cooling and setting (handpainted) before they are shipped (larger soaps require longer amount of setting time).
