Our handmade natural soap, bath, body and grooming products are inspired by the traditions, beauty and scents found in the back country of the beautiful state of Idaho. Our natural soaps are hand-poured in small batches to ensure each bar is a unique work of art. Essential oil scent blends are inspired by the natural wonders the state. Pine, lavender, fir, sage, patchouli, citrus, cloves and more are used to create aromas reminiscent of hiking in the mountains, floating down swift rivers or relaxing by an alpine lake. All things we love about Idaho.
I was skeptical, but Osana bar soap definitely works. Mosquitoes love me, so much that I had to cut short a SCUBA trip to Belize. I started using Osana after getting about 20 bites in my SoCal backyard. No more bites. I hope that you are able to resume production soon.
This soap is very effective mosquito repellant here in the Philippines. I have been here 3 months now and only got 2 bites compared to a dozen bites in a week before using it years ago. It smells fine and my wife loves is effect too. I wonder when you are going to start selling them again.
Soap extender: Our Agave fiber exfoliating bag also helps provide a longer life to soaps by letting you use tiny soap scraps (just stuff your scraps in the bag), and helping the soap dry fully between use.
Use it for natural soaps: Natural handmade soaps have a large amount of glycerin (unlike conventional big brand soaps), which makes them moisturizing. Glycerin can pull water from its surroundings, so keeping your soap completely dry between uses is essential.
A few weeks ago, I asked y'all to vote for your favorite soapmaking suppliers in the country and boy, did you respond! Almost a thousand soapmakers cast their votes! We narrowed down the best soapmaking supplier by product category, plus the best soapmaking suppliers for customer service, quality, shipping, and prices!
If you are new to using essential oils, I have a slew of articles to get you started, including my top ten recommended essential oils for beginners, how to calculate your usage rate for essential oils, and the answers to common questions about using essential oils in soapmaking.
Bramble Berry was voted the best soapmaking supplier for fragrance oils by a landslide! Bramble Berry carries over 250 different fragrance oils. They are always adding new fragrances to their catalog, so it's easy to see why!
While I don't use fragrance oils often, there are a handful of soapmaking tutorials here on Modern Soapmaking that use fragrances. Plus, you can use fragrance oil in any soapmaking recipe you wish! I love using fragrance oils to bring notes to blends that are cost prohibitive in natural fragrances, or impossible to find - like chocolate, coffee, vanilla, fruity notes, and bakery scents!
Bramble Berry does it again - they were voted the best soapmaking supplier for natural colorants and botanicals! They offer dozens of natural colorants in the form of whole botanicals, powders, and other forms. Some of my favorites include Activated Charcoal for grey and black (and to also make other colors darker!) and Madder Root for a beautiful red or pink!
Like essential oils, I love using natural colorants for a wide variety of colors! Natural colorants offer a full rainbow of colors, in muted earthy hues, which is perfect for an all-natural soapmaker. If you are new to using botanicals and herbs in soapmaking, Jo created a beautiful series about coloring soap naturally here on Modern Soapmaking.
Voted in as the best soapmaking supplier for cosmetic micas and other pigments, Mad Oils offers a full spectrum of cosmetic grade micas for your bright soapy creations! Mad Oils is super diligent about testing their micas for cold process soap stability. I love that they package their micas in jars, and that they only offer vegan-friendly colorant options - no carmine!
Without oils and butters, we wouldn't be able to make soap! It's fabulous to see one of my favorite suppliers was voted the best soapmaking supplier in this category: Columbus Foods/Soaper's Choice! Soaper's Choice offers all the staple soapmaking oils and butters in bulk sizes and attainable prices. And if you have ever given them a call, Mike does a brilliant job in helping soapmakers formulate better!
Changing up your recipe to reach your all time best might require switching around your oils and butters, but it's important to understand that all oils and butters are made up of fatty acids that influence how they perform in soap.
Voted the best soapmaking supplier for lye (no lye, no soap!) was Essential Depot. With a variety of size options and both kinds of lye (sodium hydroxide and potassium hydroxide), they've got you covered.
A super popular vote in our survey was soapmakers who find their lye locally at chemical supply companies and hardware stores. Other honorable mentions include Boyer Corporation, Duda Diesel, and The Lye Guy. So, if you are having a hard time finding lye locally, you know where to look online!
Bramble Berry snagged the most votes for being the best soapmaking supplier for soap molds. They offer tons of molds, from silicone to wood to plastic. My favorite molds from Bramble Berry include my 18-bar Slab mold and my silicone loaf molds!
By a landslide, Bud at Bud's Woodshop won the top dog spot as the best supplier for soap cutters. His craftsmanship and variety of options (plus affordable prices) definitely helped him land this spot! I have one of his loaf splitters and I adore it.
If you are new to using soap stamps, they're the perfect way to add a unique touch to your soapy creations. In this tutorial, I provide a walkthrough on using my own custom soap stamp from Lasercutz. You can also add a dash of mica to your soap stamping to create an impression with a little pizazz.
If you're looking for more options on the packaging front, my huge guide on how to ship handmade soap for your soap company also dishes on tons of places to get packaging, shipping materials, and more!
It makes complete sense that Bramble Berry was voted best soapmaking supplier in customer service, since they offer a variety of ways to get in touch, from social media to online chat to email. Plus, Bramble Berry's network of help sites offer a variety of tutorials, soapmaking information, and more!
They have a new WSPbulk website where they offer large quantities of ingredients for the growing soapmaker, which helps you get your costs down as you grow. And Wholesale Supplies Plus offers monthly deals on various product categories and a generous rewards program. It's no wonder, they offer a lot of bang for your buck!
With hundreds of votes, Bramble Berry snagged the coveted spot as the best soapmaking supplier in the country, thanks to your votes! So if you are new to soapmaking, you know you can't go wrong with Bramble Berry!
Goat milk soap is also great if you have acne, eczema, psoriasis, dry or sensitive skin. Its high fat content hydrates your skin, and the pH balance of the fatty acids found in goat milk is very similar to the levels in the human body. This makes it easy for your skin to absorb the beneficial minerals, vitamins and fatty acids, without disrupting the natural pH balance of your skin which leaves your skin feeling the way it should.
It has been said that smell is the sense that evokes our most distant memories, and I wonder if that isn't why so many people stop at our craft show booth for a sniff of soap. See what memories pop up when you smell our soaps.
Our soap is a custom blend of olive oil, castor oil, coconut oil & palm kernel oil, and of that combination, 50% is olive oil. Our own Northwoods filtered well water plus sodium hydroxide makes lye, and lye mixed with fat makes soap! Our scented soaps contain either cosmetic grade, skin-safe, essential or fragrance oils formulated for use in soap and body products. We offer a variety of fragrances, including 4 different fragrance free soaps for those with ultra-sensitive skin. You will find that there is something for everyone.
We have added Spearmint-Rosemary Salve to our line, because we, like everyone else, occasionally need some extra moisture! As always, you can read the label and know what is in our product! We've attached our own photos to the soap descriptions, some relevant and some not.
