Welcome to Lather & Soul!

I started this shop in 2009 as Stinky Dancer Soaps and now we are back!! New name and look but my soaps and lotions are still the same handmade from scratch goodness that smells great and is kind to your skin. My recipes have been years in the making and I'm excited to bring them back to you!

My Hot and Cold Process soaps start with Lye mixed with Aloe Vera Juice then I add this solution to my Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Shea and Cocoa Butters, Avocado Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Castor Oil, Fragrance/ Essential Oil, and Mica.
My Cold Process soaps are cured a minimum of 6 weeks but closer to 8 weeks on the average.

My first soapy love is Hot Process soap. They start the same way as Cold Process Soap. The only difference is that I "cook" the Lye out of the soap batter. When the soap is done cooking, the lye is neutralized and we are left with saponified soap . I cure my Hot Process soap for 3-4 weeks for a harder bar that lasts longer in your soap dish. The soap also has a charming rustic texture for the first couple of uses, then it is as smooth as Cold Process soap

*Keep in mind, the Fragrance or Essential Oils never come into contact with the Lye when making Hot Process Soap, so scents in Hot Process Soap are stronger than in Cold Process Soap.

I also offer SLS Free Decorative Glycerin Soaps. Transparent soaps show off colors beautifully with a bountiful lather.
My fragrance oils are all Phthalate free.

With the exception of my Honey and Goat Milk soaps, they are all Vegan friendly as well.

None of my products are tested on animals but I have plenty of human guinea pigs.
I proudly display my ingredients on every soap ordered and in every listing.
We do custom soap loaves and do take scent requests!! Message with any questions you have!

Thanks for taking the time out of your day to check out our shop.

Welcome to Stinky Dancer Soaps!

All of my products are handmade by my daughter and I in our kitchen from start to finish. I have been selling my handmade soap for 10 years and for personal use- many years longer.

My soaps are either Hot or Cold Process.There is no lye left in any finished bar, only the natural glycerin which is a by product of the soap making process.
My soaps are cured a minimum of 4 weeks but closer to 6 weeks on the average.

Sometimes the mood strikes me to make SLS Free Decorative Glycerin Soaps- I love that I can play with colors and designs with them that wouldn't hold up in the Cold Process.

Since all my soaps are hand cut, weights and shapes may vary.

They are very kind to your skin and full of bubbly lather using only high quality soap making oils and Phthalate free Fragrance or Essential Oils.
With the exception of my Honey and Goat Milk soaps, they are all Vegan friendly as well.

None of my products are tested on animals and are used and tested by our family and friends.
I proudly display my ingredients on every soap ordered and in every listing.

Thanks for taking the time out of your day to check out our shop.
