The orange pachouli soap favors were adorable and smelled amazing!! Leah thinks of everything from putting in a sachet, adding a card with the bride and groom's name and wedding date and even the ingredients. She got them prepared very quickly too and they were very affordable too for a handmade shower favor.

About

Handmade Artisan Soaps with a Unique Twist

I have been making handmade artisan soaps since 1997. From a young age I was creating things to sell from our small hobby farm in upstate New York. I worked on the farm and learned to knit, spin my own yarn and make jewelry. I became interested in learning how to make my own soaps after reading an article in Countryside Magazine. I got the necessary ingredients, bought a couple books to do my research and made my first batch (lavender) in 1997.

Over the years I have expanded into not just beautiful natural soaps but also bath and body products. Being able to mix and experiment with unusual botanical materials is my favorite part of being a soapmaker. My mission is to create soap that is as beautiful to look at as it is to use ( a work of art in every bar.) I love to experiment with texture and color, seeing how certain materials will react with each other. The end result are unusual yet beautiful blends of scents, colors, and textures.

Thank you for visiting my shop and I am excited to share my vision of a more natural skin care experience with you :)
