Soap is balm to the spirit. Never underestimate soap.

the road so far (has been unnecessarily exciting at times)


stuff for your skin • crap free, guaranteed

i only use ingredients i know are safe • natural, often organic or wildcrafted • the highest grade • i test anything new on me first • (if i weren’t willing to do that…) • natural is where i start • & i research each ingredient’s safety • effectiveness • & environmental impact • & then i only pick the best

i want to offer you what’s best for you • even when it’s more work & costs me more money • when taking a shortcut would be way easier • this is what I believe in, this is my passion • making sure that what I sell really is that good

why? • because soap matters • never underestimate soap • you scrub your skin (the largest organ in the body) • you rinse it off into the earth • you spray my bug spray into the air we all breathe (& on your kids) • & rub healing salve into hurty spots • & soak your hide in my bath salts

this stuff matters.
