~Carol Ochs - Owner, Soapstress, Artist

-WELCOME!.....- Old World style, handmade artisan soap...Simply Soap!

 Simply Soap officially began business in 1994. A simple idea, in a simple kitchen, by a simple gal frustrated with her own sensitive skin issues.  With a background in nursing, gardening, and well as being a throwback to many old ways, the idea came naturally:.....

Why not get back to early, uncomplicated methods of making soap instead of current detergent bars? Once current labels were deciphered, it was easy to choose to let's make soap free of fillers, antibiotic-laced animal fat, residue & chemicals. Instead let's allow simple pure ingredients and the natural plant magic of herbs and essential oils cleanse & nourish the skin as they were *meant to*! 

Sometimes, so-called "progress" in our modern world does not mean true advancement, and you actually have to step-back-in-time to re-discover true quality! I delight in re-creating the past, as well as personally & knowledgeably selecting each and every ingredient, knowing exactly what's in your soap, and what's NOT!

- Pure vegetable oils and butters (sustainably harvested)
- 100% pure therapeutic-grade essential oil scenting, and/or phthalate-free fragrance oil scenting
- Herbs, botanicals, clays and teas chosen and infused into the soap for their therapeutic values
- And just as important... the chants, intentions, and positive murmurings that also go into our soaps, by someone who LOVES creating them!


 Clearly this idea caught on with so many of you, too! Twenty + years since those simple beginnings and I'm still making Simply Soap for you!

 Come explore our regular classic offerings AND specialty soap lines! Feel the naturally luxurious, affordable skin-nourishing difference! We make soap for many sensitive skin types, as well as our fun and popular specialty lines such as:

Ancient Alchemy (based on antiquarian soap recipes)
Rustic Soap Collection (enriched with virgin African shea butter)
Wylde Faerie Soaps (soaps that faeries love)
Wylde Mermaid Soaps (soaps embued with gifts from the sea)
Wylde Wytch Soaps (soaps based on Wise Women herbal traditions)

Bathing is about more than just getting clean.  It can be a joyous ritual!

"I fell in-love with the silky, non-detergent skin-pampering of handmade soaps when they made such a big comeback in the market a couple of decades ago. Who wouldn't? I buy soap whenever/wherever I see it! But in my experience, there can be a lot of disparity in handmade soaps, and honestly, I come back to Simply Soap over and over again as my go-to soapmaker for their unique blends, charming designs, awesome gift-giving, and consistently superior soaps! (Not to mention, Carol is a gem to know!) I love supporting businesses like this!" - Allison, San Diego, CA
