Handmade Soap! Lavender Honey Soap! Simply Soap!


*NEW*!!! - Lavender Honey Soap

I was instantly inspired to make this soap while reading lavender recipes - how to make lavender honey! (My lavender bush is bursting with buds!) Why not make it in soap?!?! Half lavender scented, half honey scented, and all enriched with organic beeswax and golden honey! An absolute skin and olfactory sensory delight; leaves your skin super-softened and scented of lavender, honey and a wee hint of beeswax!! My new favorite soap! (And when you perspire, it only seems to intensify the delicious scent!)

You can find it here!

Handmade Handcrafted shea butter soap!

Customers often ask me what my favorite ingredient is to work with! So hard to choose, there's SO MANY! But virgin (unrefined) African shea butter has to be near the top of the list! It's SO FANTASTIC IN SOAP! You can even use shea butter straight on any dry areas for instant relief (cracked heels, elbows, hands)! I use it as fully 5% of our popular Rustic Soap Collection soaps. http://simplysoap.com/rustic-soaps.php I order my shea butter from a coop that purchases from African women of Ghana, who hand-crush the shea nuts into butter! Purchasing from them supplies much-needed jobs ....something else to feel good about, besides gently-cleaned, well-moisturized, gloriously scented (or unscented) SKIN!

Handmade Soap - UNSCENTED Soaps!


Customers often ask me "So what's YOUR favorite soap?"...and are surprised when I say "my unscented soap", given all the scented-soaps I have available to me at any given time, I guess this does seem unusual!  But truth is (and what led me into soapmaking in the first place), is I have very sensitive skin.  Change in the weather can exacerbate this, too!  Especially HOT weather! Unscented just keeps my skin on a more even keel, and MANY, MANY of my customers are the same way or have sensitive skin for a myriad of reasons!  

We've grown to having 5 different unscented soaps!

- African Black Magic (Ancient Alchemy line) - made in the tradition of African Black Soap!
- Bar None with Oats - the soothing benefits of oatmeal!
- Hawthorn, Daisy & Feverfew - filled with ground botanicals known for their soothing effects on inflamed, irritated skin!
- Soothe & Smooth  (Rustic Soap line) - also filled with skin-soothign botanicals and herbs, and made sans coconut oil for those sensitive to it.
- Simply Organic Soap - made with certified organic oils.

You can read more about each at our site!  www.simplysoap.com

And these are some more tips for healthy, sensitive skin that we agree with!

Order EARLY!!!!

*****PSA*****
But it's "only June"!  Right, I know!  ;)
But it's a faaaaast ride from here on out to the end of the year!  A plethora of fests, faires, and holiday shopping displays that has already kicked our production into high gear!  So just a sweet lil' reminder to all of our valued retailers in particular---lead times may be lengthened from here on out, (especially on custom-made soaps!) and if you have a special event and need-by date, please get your orders in early so we can fulfill for you on-time.  Remember...soap needs time to cure! - Thanks!

Handmade Handcrafted Coffee Soap - Java Bean Scrub - hmmmmm!

IT'S BACK! RE-FORMULATED! 

Contains Starbucks® coffee!

Coffee lovers, you can now slip into the biggest coffee pot---YOUR TUB! And did you know coffee is a natural deodorizer? The entire liquid portion of this soap (usually distilled water) is made with freshly brewed double-strength coffee, as well as we added a ribbon swirl of ground coffee thrown in for ever-so-light "scrub". It also makes a highly effective deodorizing HAND SOAP sink-side in the kitchen to help remove onion, garlic and just about any kind of smelliness you can cook-up! For some, well, we know you just love lathering up in your favorite brew as you sip a cup in your morning shower. What a way to WAKE UP!
No scent oils added whatsoever, however it smells like coffee from the coffee used to make it!
