My Story

I was always looking for the perfect soap... the soap that you use at the beach where there is just a little bit of sand stuck to the top and gives you a great exfoliation. After never finding exactly what I wanted, I decided that I needed to learn how to make my own.


I took an intensive workshop, then began experimenting with my own recipes and ingredients. I cherish the time I have to make soap and I try to carve out as much time for it as possible.

I was born in Takoma Park, Maryland, where I grew up. Then I lived in New York City for 18 years, and am now back in Takoma Park, where I live with my husband, 4 year old son, a goldfish and a small snake.
