====================================================================

Here at Soap Distillery, we make bath and body products inspired by cocktails, liquors, liqueurs, beer, wine, and the like. These products are not designed to make you smell like an alcoholic, however. What we do is we start with the base notes of the inspiration, and build a fragrance blend around it. For example, our Bourbon soap won't make you smell like you've been drinking all night, but it will make you smell like vanilla, vetiver, and clove: very warm and mildly sweet. It's a treat!

====================================================================

Direct checkout and gift cards accepted.

For custom orders (custom fragrances, custom look, wedding soaps, party soaps, etc), please contact us through etsy or email! We can do just about anything. Please allow 4-6 weeks for soap orders.

Due to the handmade nature of products such as what is in this shop, there may be some slight differences in size, color, texture and fragrance from one batch to the next. It's to be expected with handmade products. We follow our recipes to a "T" to avoid this as much as possible, however, it does not mean that your product is defective.

There's nothing like the smell of spring all year around!
Gin soap. So clean. A little spicy. All natural.

About

Don't settle for less. You deserve better.

Hi. I'm Danielle. Soap Maker. Formulator. Designer. I first started making soap because I was unsatisfied with the ingredients and fragrances in the "all natural" section of my local grocery store. I thought the essential oil offerings were pretty boring, and I could never find products that had the perfect ingredients in them. I'd often find stuff to try, and wouldn't enjoy it at all. Either it was too drying, had ingredients that I wanted to avoid, or was just tired. How many times could I see a lavender soap or a patchouli orange perfume oil? Don't get me wrong, these blends are fine, especially if you love simplicity. I loved my lemon room spray but I just needed something different. I needed something more unique. I needed simple ingredients with complex fragrance blends and I couldn't find anything like what I wanted. So, I tried my hand at making a Patchouli Fig soap with a little beeswax added, and I never turned back. My next challenge: how do I make this stuff "unique"? How do I give my soap a character that can't be duplicated, or even properly imitated?

Since I was old enough to drink in Chicago, I've been interested in the chemistry of a good cocktail. It often starts with high end spirits that have been specially crafted to stand out from the crowd, and those spirits are made with clean, raw ingredients that have their own individual character. Each ingredient used in different amounts can make or break a spirit, and what you have left after this crafting process is a smooth tasting aromatic perfume of a base that's smoky, or sharp, or piney, or sweet (unless it's vodka. Then its just clean). These drinkable perfumes are what makes good cocktails taste (and smell) so - damn - good. So, I thought one day, I bet I could make a bourbon SOAP. Shortly thereafter, Soap Distillery was born.

We pride ourselves in only using the best ingredients we can get our hands on, and testing our formulations for months to years to make sure we are offering products that are great to use and look good too. Think of picking up someone in a bar. You see them from across the room,and you're hooked on them at first sight. Imagine your disappointment when you get over to them, and they've got nothing good to say? This is why our products are the whole package. They look great, feel great, and our customers enjoy using them. From organic to sustainable, our special line of items have it all. It's the guy that dresses nice AND smells good. It's the lady that could be a model that teaches physics. You will not be disappointed. Take a shower with our Gin soap and leave that hangover for someone else.

    I love making cocktails. At some point in my life, I discovered that I loved making soap. I've always loved making things, so it just makes sense that I combined the two into the same thing, right? But enough about me, how's about you?

Thanks for making it through the massive etsy wave to Soap Distillery! All of our products are paraben, SLS, formaldehyde donor, phthalate, and PEG free. We wouldn't have it any other way. Most products use only essential oils and natural fragrances, as well as clay and other botanicals for color but the exception will be clearly marked.

In accordance with the CPSIA act, effective 2/2009, nothing sold by Soap Distillery is primarily intended for use by persons aged 12 & under. Also, we don't recommend our soaps for children (especially under the age of three), as they have a tendency to get soap in their eyes. Soap, although very safe for the skin, can be irritating if it goes past your eyelid into the tender bits. We don't want your itty bitty one to be sad because they have soap in their eye. Please contact us if you have questions.
