handmade-soap-nourish-soaps

Welcome to the Nourish Soap Shop where I switch the world off and create beautiful handmade soap!

Since 2012 I have been creating handmade soap using the traditional hot-process method. My soaps are made from scratch using simple, wholesome ingredients that are good for your skin, making them a safe and healthy choice for your entire family (and your pets too).

I get a lot of mixed reactions when I tell people I'm a soap maker. Most people just grin and nod, and I imagine they're thinking something along the lines of "How delightfully mundane!"

But just like everything in life, people tend to look at the surface of something, and decide they fully understand it. Little do they know that making soap is (at least for me) an exercise in art, magic, and alchemy.

My mission is to get people using real soap.  It looks stylish, it is fantastic to use, it is natural with no added chemicals, it is beneficial for the skin, it moisturizes without the need for creams, it costs less than shower gel and it is environmentally friendly with virtually no energy in manufacture and packaging!

All of the ingredients in my handmade soap come from natural plant-based sources such as vegetables, nuts, fruits, and herbs. With added clays and butters, juices and plenty of love my soaps are super skin food.

Order a bar and try it out - you'll never opt for commercially made soap again!

Please visit my online shop and come back regularly as I am continually dreaming up new products to tantalize my customers with.  If you have any specific desires or comments, feel free to contact me using the contact form below.  I value your input.

Handmade soap curing in the sun

So hard to choose a favorite! I have the Orange Blossom in the kitchen, the Sandalwood Scrub by the bath and the Afrodesia in my clothes cupboard and there is a beautiful subtle smell in our room. I’d have to say the shampoo bar in my shower, my son’s hair is silky soft and it leaves my skin so moisturized, so that is my favorite! Thanks for a top quality product that is part of my everyday enjoyment.
