Why Make Handmade Soap?

My soaping journey started back in 2016 when I became interested in handcrafted products. I wanted to created my own mini spa experience at home, stealing some time for myself to relax and unwind. But, I also needed a remedy for my skin problems. I have always had very dry skin and keratosis pilaris (or chicken skin). I have tried a lot of products, both prescription and over the counter and could never find a solution. I began researching the "hard-to-pronounce" ingredients in these products I was using and became frustrated by the harsh chemicals and detergents in them. Because I had such a hard time finding anything that worked for my skin, I decided to see if handmade products could help me. I set out to try and make handmade soap and handcrafted items on my own, and The Essential Oils Soapery was born!

We started The Essential Oils Soapery with several goals in mind:


1) Helping others (especially busy mom's) experience their own spa time, sneaking a few minutes to unwind and rejuvenate themselves.

2) Share custom made products hoping we are able to help those who struggle with troubled skin. **Medical Disclaimer: Our soaps and other body products are meant for you and your skin to enjoy!
