I'm Toni, Soapstress of the company I created, known as "Handcrafted by Toni." I make my Yucca Root soap in a small town at the southern edge of the Gila National Forest in New Mexico. It's a lovely little "You can't get there from here" kind of place. It's a bit wild, a bit artsy, a bit earthy, and hours away from some things I want. But it has everything I need.

I chose orange and purple to be my business's colors because they are Bold like the sun and the wilderness. Bold like beautiful Mexican Talavera tilework and pottery. Bold like choosing kindness. And seeking the good in people and situations. My logo is a healing hand because I lovingly infuse each bar with Reiki energy. And just maybe that's Bold, too. It's the little things that make the difference in life, and I am inspired to do those little, often unseen, things Boldly.

Good soap feeds your senses, invigorates or calms you, elevates a basic self-care necessity to a pleasure and a positive experience. I handcraft each small batch of cold-process Yucca Root soap from scratch using high quality ingredients and tried-and-true recipes. All these good things combine naturally to result in real soap, which I hand cut into substantial bars and cure for 3-4 weeks in the dry mountain air of southwestern New Mexico.

Rich lather, enveloping scent, and the positive energy of Reiki: Soap Handcrafted by Toni makes the perfect shower experience to start your day, or the "just right" addition to your relaxing nighttime bath ritual. My wish for you is that you enjoy the small things in your day, and bring the positive into everything you do. Every day. I would be honored and humbled if soap that I created and blessed became a part of your own Bold kindness journey.
