I love the ritual and nurture that comes from bathing and self-care. I don't love the array of synthetic chemicals found in so many store brands of soaps and skincare. Even the "natural" versions often contain unpronounceable ingredients of questionable origin as well as possible skin irritants. I felt like I could do better.

Six years ago I began my soap making journey. I learned the cold process method for soap making. Although it is the most time consuming style of producing soap (with a six week cure time) I feel it creates the mildest and most gentle soaps, I use natural oils and clays to create mild but effective cleansers. I add organic essential oils and herbs for their healing and aromatherapy benefits. The result is gorgeous botanically scented slices of paradise.

When using a soap that contains all natural ingredients bathing becomes an indulgent time to reconnect with nature and the health benefits our earth provides. I have always felt that this is the best bar of soap I've ever used and it is so encouraging to receive the same feedback from those who try it.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my shop. I hope you find an herb based soap or oil combination that speaks to your heart.
