Do you accept custom soap orders?
Absolutely! Our handmade soap is perfect for bridal shower gifts, party favors, teacher gifts or custom gift baskets. There is a ten-bar minimum order and we request at least a six-week notice. Contact us if you have questions or would like bulk pricing and other information.
What is the shelf life of handmade soap?
Heat, humidity and light all affect handmade soap. It should be stored in a cool, dry place and is best if used within one year of purchase. However, we hope you love our soap so much that it will used up way before then! Also, it will last longer if it stays dry between uses, in a raised soap dish.
Why don't your soaps have a much stronger scent?
Handcrafted soaps with a very strong scent are made using synthetic fragrance oils. Our soaps are made using only natural essential oils. And, as such, they have a much more subtle scent.
Why aren't any of your soaps white or have bright colors and swirls?
Handmade soaps that have bright colors or swirls achieve this through the addition of artificial ingredients like titanium dioxide (for white soaps) or colored pigments. We keep our soaps natural, simple and let the wonderful ingredients speak for themselves. All the lovely colors of our soaps are achieved through the use of oils/butters, clays and natural herbs and botanicals. Like we say, "Natural soap made with natural ingredients - naturally."
Will your bath bombs stain my tub?
Our bath bombs do not contain any artificial dyes or colorants that will stain your tub. We only use natural ingredients to add color to our bath bombs. These include ground mint, ground rose petals and paprika. As these botanicals are mixed with grape seed oil (that moisturizes your skin) you may find that some of these dried ingredients will stick to your skin. They will rinse right off with soap and water.
How much do your bars of soap weigh?
Freshly-made bars weigh approx. 4.5 oz., a month later (fully cured and ready to sell) they will weigh 3.6-4 oz. Each bar is approx. 2.75” wide x 3” high x 1” thick.
