A homemade Christmas gift: 

that was the beginning of my obsession with making hand crafted soap. Many family members had suffered from dry skin issues like eczema, and I was intrigued by the prospect of making natural, moisturizing handmade soap that would soothe their skin and eliminate harsh additives found in commercial soap. After extensive research I launched The Soap Chest in the fall of 2000 and began selling the soap that our family had fallen in love with.

I enjoy incorporating my own homegrown herbs and local honey and goat milk into my soap and experimenting with exotic oils and butters from all over the world. I love creating a beautiful and wholesome, yet practical product. Starting from scratch, I make soap in the “new, old-fashioned way,” that is, using centuries-old processes but incorporating new and more precise measurements and globally obtained ingredients. Each bar is hand crafted and hand cut with care to ensure a truly custom product that is perfect for personal use or gift giving.
