I think it depends on what state you are in.

Hi Amy,

The rules of Etsy state that you must follow the laws required where you live. so if you need a business license to operate a store in England, then you need one to sell on Etsy.

And I would strongly recommend that you have business insurance as well if you are selling soaps in the odd chance that someone has a reaction to a soap that you've sold and decides to open a lawsuit.

It doesn't happen often but if it does, it can mean the difference between losing your livelyhood and not.
