- Choose from a variety of bar sizes, from 0.8 oz, great for an amenity bar, to 5.3 oz, our retail favorite.
- Imprint each bar with your logo.
- Bevel the bar edges for a smoother feel.
- Package your soaps in one of our eco-friendly options.
- Display the finished soaps in your retail setting, or bundle them as gift packs.
From our experience working with customers, the easiest method is to open and/or print our custom order form
then have it handy to refer to as you are reading through the choices and descriptions below.
To gain access to the order form, please register your company name and email address
, on the wholesale/private label page, and you will be taken to the wholesale pricing/ordering information page.
Our soapmaker has worked with plant and essential oils, herbs and spices, plant butters and seeds, to create a line of soap scent/color combinations which distills the complex array of possible ingredients into some easier choices. This set of ten different soaps is designed to highlight the beautiful diversity of the plant kingdom, with each type featuring a particular blend of species chosen for their unique and pleasing scent or color. Occasionally we may change the soaps we feature in order to highlight the seasonal nature of the botanical world.
Please use the photos and description of the ingredients and benefits to help you choose from our featured scents.

*All case counts are approximate and may vary by +/- 5% due to handmade nature of soaps.
Each of the bars can be hand stamped with your logo, beautifully extending your brand into the finest of handmade soaps. If you would like this option you will need to send us a computer file of your chosen logo or design (.pdf, .eps, .ai) at the time you place your order or soon thereafter. We will have a brass stamp made to fit the size bar you choose. This stamp is yours to be reclaimed at any time.
Our basic bars have the clean, straight lines left by our guitar-string cutters, creating a square edged bar with a rugged look and feel. For those who want a more refined finish, we offer the option of hand-beveling the edges and points. Because the beveling is done free-hand without the use of machinery, each edge has small undulations that give evidence of the bar's artisan roots, creating a look similar to carved stone or a block of hard cheese.
Although many of our customers display their soap unpackaged, due to the beauty of the natural colors and lusciousness of the botanical scents, we offer eco-friendly packaging options for those who prefer an enclosed bar. We have carefully sourced our materials for maximum sustainability and designed our packages to highlight both the bar itself and your brand on it. In all cases we have minimized the packaging to both reduce your costs and reduce the use of natural resources.
Bag and Sticker: Our simplest and least expensive option, yet carefully designed for maximum visual appeal and sustainability. The bag is cellophane, a material manufactured from wood pulp and fully biodegradable. We source cellophane that is made from plantation grown eucalyptus and aspen, not native forests or old growth trees. Please see material details about the sticker below. Each sticker will be stamped with the appropriate scent and can be shipped separate from the bag or assembled.
Private Label Sticker: All of our stickers are made from tree-free paper, a mixture of sugar cane waste, bamboo fiber, and cotton lint. They are printed with soy inks and use water based adhesive. The scent will be stamped above the text, while your information or logo can be stamped below in the blank space.
5.3 oz Bar Window Box 3.5 oz Bar Window Box
Boxes: Our paperboard boxes are made from 100% post consumer recycled material and are fully biodegradable and recyclable. The window cut into the face of the box allows the beauty of the bar and the full logo stamp to show through, enhancing visual appeal and maximizing brand visibility. It also allows a space for the customer to smell the essential oil scents.
Cello Wrap Vellum Wrap
Wraps: The cello wrap is biodegradable cellophane. The vellum wrap is 60% recycled material. Both are hand wrapped tightly around the bar, giving the soap an elegant, sleek appeal. The wraps are the same price.
Redwood Display: This soap display case is handcrafted from reclaimed redwood. Designed to fit our artisan soaps, it was built by North Cal Wood Products (www.northcal.com) using redwood salvaged from old buildings. North Cal purchases old structures, in this case an old mill, and carefully deconstructs the building to save the usable wood. Large beams and planks are milled
down to remove the aged surface and reveal the beautiful heartwood.
Season's Sampler: Nestled in aspen shavings are four soaps with scents that echo the season:
-Rosemary Barleygrass for Spring
-Lavender Peppermint Milk for Summer
-Spruce Fir for Autumn
-Orange Cinnamon Clove for Winter
The soaps are scented with only pure essential oils and are made from organic extra virgin olive oil, organic palm oil (sustainably sourced from Brazil), and organic coconut oil. The only preservative is Vitamin E derived from GMOfree plant sources. The box is a 100% recycled paperboard core covered with handmade Nepalese paper. The paper is made from the lotka shrub by harvesting the branches, leaving the plant alive and growing. Colors are achieved with vegetable dies.
Winner of the Best New Natural/Organic Product in the body care section of the 2010 Winter New York International Gift Fair.
Nepalese Paper Gift Box: These handmade boxes are crafted from a core of recycled paperboard and covered with lotka paper. Lotka (Daphne papyraceais) is a shrub which lives in the wild in Nepal and regrows after pruning. Lotka paper is made from the prunings of these shrubs, allowing the plant to live and eliminating the need for tree harvests. The colors of the paper come from vegetable-based dies, and the manufacture of these boxes is done according to Fair Trade principals.
Wooden Gift Box: Made from pauwlonia wood, fast growing, drought tolerant, cultivated tree, this box is light in both color and weight, but possesses a surprising strength. With its four square compartments wonderfully sized for our 5.3 oz bars, and its tight fitting overhanging lid ready to enclose the contents, this box can make a wonderful gift. Each compartment can hold a different soap or you can include your own personal touch like a washcloth, loupha, or other bath item.
For those who want the freedom to create their own unique soap, or if you have a special ingredient or natural perfume that you want to incorporate, like your own olive oil, flower petals, or essential oils, we can accommodate you. Here is a list of the ingredients you can choose from. Please email or call us when you have arrived at some possible combinations or if you have questions. There is a one case minimum order. The custom soap is not guaranteed to come out exactly as you imagine it, but it is guaranteed for any flaws in workmanship. Any custom recipes will be held strictly confidential.
