SOAP FOR YOUR SOUL
Soap created for and by you!
I got started making soap about five years ago as part of learning to tap my intuition and my body's wisdom. I haven't stopped.
Soaping has taught me the importance of scent as a doorway into experiences and emotions from long ago, or to the moment that is here right now. My soap-making process is a way of listening to the whispers of my own memories and longings, and of those around me. Using a combination of science, intuition, experience and co-creation, what began as a small two-week practice has evolved into something much deeper.
So - what or who are you longing to celebrate, remember, honour, witness?
All soaps are made by hand using the hot or cold process depending on the need. This means I work with raw oils and lye. Base oils include olive, coconut, palm kernel, avocado and castor. As much as possible, I source my ingredients from Canadian suppliers who in turn use ethical and fair trade practices.
When the saponification process is complete, I add essential oils, shea butter and beeswax (from our own bees!). Other additives are used to colour and texture the soap, including loose tea, spices, seeds, coffee grounds, salt, clays and ground apricot shells. All of these are customizable.
Soaps are made monthly, so what I have on-hand varies. If you're looking to buy a few bars of ready-made soap, email or call to find out what's available!
CUSTOM SOAP, INSPIRED BY YOU
What or who would you like to celebrate?
If you want something special and unique, but don't have the time to participate in the actual soap-making, I work with you to choose base oils, additives and scents, based on the experience or memories that you want to make.
