crafting natural soap and beauty products

Tell us about your business.

Since a young age, I have always been intrigued by handmade crafts. Everything from clothing to lotion, I absorbed the knowledge of creating things from scratch. I dabbled in melt and pour soap every now and then, but crafting soap from various oils eluded me...until a leisure class sparked my interest. It seemed like a fun way to spend time with my mother-in-law, and little did I know that this five week class would open up a world of opportunity. After giving away most of the “samples” from class, orders started pouring in for Christmas presents and gift baskets. I knew I was on to something.

What makes your business stand out?

My natural handcrafted soaps use the perfect combination of oils to create a one of a kind bath experience. Each one has a balance of moisturizing and cleansing oils to provide the best soap possible.
