Each bar is an individual

One of the best things about making a handcrafted soap is that I have the opportunity to design, experiment and create something new and different every time I create a loaf. One of the most fun things to play with, is the color and design of a bar.

Choosing a color, that “matches” the scent, deciding if a swirl, an ombre, a solid, or just two layered colors matches the scent is one of the most enjoyable parts about being a soap maker. But what does that mean for the people buying my soap? It means, that every bar is going to be slightly different in appearance. Sometimes more than slightly.

When doing swirls, swirls do what they will, so each individual bar may be slightly different from the next one. Like in this upcoming beauty, Sweet Citrus.

But sometimes, I love a scent and recipe and I just want to try a totally different color or design. These bars are exactly the same, they just look totally different. You can see what I mean in these two soaps, Catoctin Morning and Karma. Again, they are made using the same recipe and scent, but two very different designs.

When a design takes me to a very different place, I try to give my customers the option as to which design they prefer. I will make every effort to accommodate. If you want a specific design, please specify by contacting me first so that I can confirm that the design you want is still available.
