Bath & Shower Soaps


When I first began making soap, I tried all kinds of different combinations. It was great fun to experiment, and was very important in the whole learning process.

As the business grew and more people became involved in it, it was quickly evident to me that I needed to slim down my recipe collection. Feedback from friends, family and customers helped me tremendously in this process.

People always asked if the soap was for the body or the hands or the face. Well, I personally use the same bar on every part of myself and this was confusing at first. Guess what - this is how the big companies have been marketing soap to us for a good long time. So, I am acquiescing in some small ways.

These are my Bath and Shower Soaps. The formula is primarily a good, food-grade olive oil tempered with a bit of edible coconut oil and palm oil. The soap produced creates a good sudsy lather with plenty of cleaning power. It has moisturizing and conditioning properties to keep your skin healthy and glowing.

I use essential oils in scenting them because these are derived directly from the plant and have their own special properties, from anti-inflammatories to antiseptic and anti-fungal actions, to mention a few. Fragrance oils do not have healing properties and are scents only, often made with petroleum distillates which can create so much trouble for so much skin!

Pretty colors are always eye-catching but, again, modern science has been discovering some nasty secrets about some of the dyes we use. After all, there are decades of "guinea pigs" to learn from now - since we have all been so cooperatively applying these artificial colors to our bodies in our soaps and cosmetics! My colors come from plant roots, leaves and flowers, and you know - what has been good enough for Mother Nature for millenia is still good enough me, and you, too!.

Using a combination of skin-loving oils in this soap, we have created a bar that has beautifully scented, rich lather that gently cleans and moisturizes your skin.

A soap you'll want to keep for yourself, it is nonetheless pretty enough to show off for guests. The delicate pinks, violets and blues swirled throughout the soap are from natural earth minerals, the same colorants used in natural cosmetics.

Scented with relaxing lavender and spiced up with mint, you'll find this soap has a sophisticated attitude that suits the modern woman: this is not your grandmother's lavender powder puff! For a floral soap, Lavender Bouquet is more enlivening than sweet, relaxing not sedating, and good for your skin as well as your attitude!

QTY: 
Richly scented and so straight forward. This soap is pure lemongrass: it even gets its luscious rich color from the essential oil.

Choose Lemongrass for its reviving and super-refreshing scent, or choose it for its healing properties as an anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and antimicrobial. Skin flare ups? Try this soap and see how clear and clean your skin can be. Use a gentle exfoliation, like a rough cloth, loofah or nylon bath poof to deep clean those pores.

Use this soap for everyday - it is gentle enough for healthy, happy skin, too: face, body and hands!

Since men and women alike are drawn to this soap, if you are looking for a gift, try Lemongrass.


M'LADY'S LAVENDER MOSAIC W/ KAOLIN CLAY BAR SOAP
Select from available sizes below
QTY: 
Our basic recipe has been tweaked into this beautiful purple, lavender scented soap with Kaolin clay.

The high mineral content of White Kaolin Clay rejuvenates the skin while the clay exfoliates and stimulates blood circulation to the skin.

Kaolin clay in the soapy lather contributes a “slip” to the lather so you can use this soap as a shave cream, too, to keep the razor gliding along for a nick-free shave. It is soothing and moisturizing on the skin so it is perfect for shaving under arms or legs, and makes great all-over body & face soap.

Try it on your tender complexion, too.

SEA SALT & PINK GRAPEFRUIT
Select from available sizes below
QTY: 
This is the only bar I make with this combination of shea butter and coconut oil. It is a hard bar with a great lather and terrific skin conditioning properties.

The sea salt gives this bar an interesting twist, like a refreshing swim in the sea, and, as most of you know, salt is a healer for minor abrasions, skin eruptions, sore muscles and inflammations.

Pink Grapefruit essential oil is reviving and enervating, stimulating circulation and therefore restoring the entire body.

The salt crystals are just abrasive enough to scrub your skin to a gentle tingle if you use the bar directly on your skin. Otherwise, lather up a bath pouf or cloth and luxuriate in the creamy lather.

Mmmm...warm and sweet and spicy

Walking through the wintry woods in the Adirondacks, it was a special surprise to come upon bright green, leathery leaves poking through the snow. Biting down on a leaf, a most delicious, sweet & refreshing taste filled my mouth: wintergreen. For me, it is a treasured memory of winter.

Now it is a special soap for the season!
