Upcoming Event

We will be at the Bayley House sale on June 4th, our booth will be inside where it's nice and shady, so come by and pick up a few things to spoil yourself or someone special! If you are local to us you will want to watch for our flyers in the week or two prior to the sale.

The old mansion is not looking so fine these days, restoration is going slowly being funded mostly by donation. The sale helps by taking in funds from vendors as well as offering items related to the history of the area and the Bayley House.

****Thanks to everyone who stopped at our booth and helped make it a successful day for us, it was a lot of fun!****

Get free stuff from me

It's gotten so crowded around here with all these stacks of soap piling up, my hubby says it's him or the soap... somebody's gotta go. Ok not really, LOL!

But, you CAN get some stuff for free!

I am instituting a new referral policy for existing customers who are on my mailing list. If I receive an order from a new customer who mentions that you referred them to me, I will send a little somethin' out to you as a thank-you. So tell your friends!

In the meantime here's a relaxing scene from my neck of the woods to gaze at...

Ok now go on and tell all your friends, I have lost my mind and am giving away soap! ;)

Bath Essentials

Here are the perfect companions to my soap -

First, shown in the small bowl in the photo below, a whipped shea that is a true body butter, not just a jarred cream - intensively moisturizing yet not thick and sticky. Made from unrefined shea butter (shown below in the red bowl) with all of its skin nourishing qualities, a tiny bit goes a long way and relieves ashy, itchy dryness.

Next, a sugar scrub that is not your average gloppy oil scrub. This one is specially formulated to turn creamy and lotion-like as it exfoliates. Rinses away, but leaves just the right amount of moisturizing behind.


Sea Pebbles

A trip to the coast, where the waves crashed onto a beach of time-worn pebbles in every shade imaginable, inspired this batch. Rich in shea butter, in the mellow herby fragrance of Chamomile, this one is as relaxing as an afternoon spent gazing out at the sea.

****Update - 1 left.****


I was framed!

Had been wanting to try this design for a while, learned a lot in doing it. I'll be playing with this one again, I think!

These both are scented with Nag Champa, a soft incensey floral.

Sold out


Lavender Kumquat

Here's my most popular fragrance, blended into a recipe of the Castile style. It contains half olive oil and half my favorite soaping oil, Rice Bran Oil. With the wonderful mild qualities of olive and the gentleness and foamy lather of rice bran, this bar has proven to be kind to my dry skin as well as a joy to use. Lavender and Kumquat together create a bright, sweet scent with a subtle floral note. Contains no colorant, the creamy ivory is the natural color of the soap.
I will make more as this soap sells out so check back if I don't have any right now.

****Sold out****


Wanna Glow?

What the heck is it, you ask? Well, you (hopefully) are familiar with my emulsifying scrub that turns to a lotion and rinses off, leaving you gently exfoliated and lightly moisturized... imagine it thicker... thicker... thicker... til you have a solid scrub bar that exfoliates and moisturizes, doesn't glop out of your hands and lasts several showers or baths... This is it!
Scented with a bright blend of Kumquat and Lavender, this will be the one part of your bathing ritual you won't ever want to skip. It will leave a light layer of rich emollients on your skin, you may notice you don't need a lotion after using this very special scrub. At 5.5 oz a generous portion that will have you looking forward to spoiling yourself with every shower.

****Update - Lavender Kumquat sold out
