So, we went and did a thing

Yes, you heard that right here.  We (my husband and me) went and did a thing.  We opened up an online artisan luxury cold-process small-batch soap company!  (that’s a mouthful!)  No kidding.  I’ve been dabbling in soaps for the past 15 months, as I really wanted something that didn’t strip things from my skin, but that gave my skin good gentle care, copious  bubbles and sensational nourishment, with great essential oils and wonderful base oils like avocado oil, olive oil and shea butter.  And, I don’t mean a measly 1% of each.  I mean that most of the soap bar is composed of these oils!

We cure our cold-process soap in-house for a minimum of 6 weeks.  15 months of hard work produced something that most of my family now uses as their go-to.

I do not use any fragrance oils (as they are chemically man-made) and I use only plant-based base oils.

If you’d like a luxury bar of soap that feels good, scents the air with great essential oils and leaves your skin feeling it’s best, please visit my website at:

I'm a licensed landscape architect who is married with three wonderful step-kids and a wonderful granddaughter. My husband and I share our passion of racing and have very hectic summers. I made my first quilt over a decade ago and waited another 8 years to tackle my second. Doing so fostered a passion to completely "build" a quilt and my third quilt saw me realize my dream to design, construct and longarm a quilt. This was made for a very special person....my mom!

  1. How wonderful – I do like the coloured swirls. Over here I am lucky enough to be in touch with smallholders/homesteaders who make soap from their goats milk! Great to have something home made without the artificial additives. Well done, congratulations – may you be very successful with the new venture. Always a good thing when the makers use their own products.

    1. That is very cool. I totally agree…handmade soap with wholesome ingredients makes all the difference in the world. I have often wondered if I was a homesteader in a previous life. My mom is always like “I don’t know where you get this!” My Dad, who isn’t very complementary (but he’s an awesome Dad and I love him dearly) will say, when he has a good meal, “It’s edible”. Ha! He told my Mom that I better get ready for the business to grow fast. He actually ONLY uses our soap now! Enjoy your soap you can snatch up! Take care!

      1. One of the ranges that they make is one that contains pumice – that is brilliant I have to admit, for hard skin (horrid dirty muddy feet) – it has worked and I said I had shiny soles! LOL!

  2. My sis gets “two clean hands up” for her wonderful soaps. I’ve been the lucky recipient of several of those test batches, and have loved all of them. Normally in the winter I get dozens of tiny cracks in the tips of my fingers. While I did still get several, they are primarily in two fingers now–one being the right thumb, which takes a pounding on the “space” key, since I type tons at work and at home. This has been a huge improvement in my winter hands, since I previously had to use liquid bandaids on half a dozen fingers regularly. The soap lathers wonderfully, smells heavenly, and has TOTALLY replaced my Bath and Body Works shower gel. Rub the bar a few times across your shower poof, rub it in your hands a few times, and you have the bubbles to shower.

    1. Thanks, Sis! I’m totally loving this penultimate one. With the coconut milk, it’s just wonderful. It was amazing to have so many facebook friends and family chime in to my facebook page to tell me that they love it! Sunday is packing day for the weekend orders and I’m tickled pink! So glad you’ve helped me test these along the way. And, since I exclusively have used these in the shower and at the sink these past 12 months, I have not had a single crack in my hands! I’m usually covered in cracks. Win, win! Love you so much!!!
