Chocolate Amber

This soap smells like a candy factory!  In addition to the chocolate and amber scent, it also has notes of lavender and tangerine.  It’s very sweet and delicious smelling.  Due to the fragrance oil, it discolors to a dark brown, despite my best efforts, although there is a little decorative color on the top that will wash off with first use.

UPDATE:  Only 5 left in stock!  Sale price $3.50 per bar plus shipping and handling!

Galactic Skies

I am so happy with how these turned out!  I love the colors and the scent is, to me, decidedly masculine.  I think it smells like a really nice men’s cologne and I can imagine a guy who uses this soap in his shower would get a lot of compliments on how nice he smells when people get close to him. 

Galactic Skies, from the BrambleBerry website, is described as: “This masculine scent is the perfect blend of citrus and wood notes. It starts with bergamot, lemon, lime, grapefruit, jasmine, lavender, cardamom, melon, and rose. Then, base notes of musk, sandalwood, vanilla, and amber come through. Galactic Skies smells amazing in handmade soap, shaving cream, and beard oil.

Also, I’ve added Goat Milk and Yogurt to my bars, so the skin of the man who uses it will not feel dried out or scaly. 

While this soap is spoken for, I wanted to show you the kinds of soap I make. 

Please email me at silverhillsoapery@gmail.com if you have any questions or requests!  I can absolutely do custom orders! 

Thank you!

Pink Pineapple; the cut

This is what it looks like, on the inside!

I chose delicate colors for this Pink Pineapple so that the focus would be more on the scent, if that makes sense.  The person for whom I made this soap mentioned scents more than colors when I asked what she liked so I wanted to focus on that. 

The fragrance I picked is so nice and fruity, almost like a candy.  I hope she likes it!

What kind of soap would you like me to make for you?

Clover and Aloe

This light scent is a blend of fresh greens and bright citrus. It has notes of bergamot, lemon, mint, green tea, rose, lily, amber, moss, and violet.   It comes across as refreshing and green, and is not floral or fruity at all.  It is neither feminine nor masculine.

Black Ice

Because man skin needs love, too!

One of my soaping goals for this year is to design a line of soaps for men.  Men have skin, and men like to have skin that feels good to them, just like women do.   Men want a soap that cleans well and smells nice without being feminine, or sparkly.

To that end, I present Black Ice.  This soap is scented with a blend of Rain Water and Fresh Snow fragrance oils for a mild, clean scent.

This soap is colored with black and blue.  Yogurt and activated charcoal have been added to skin-loving coconut oil to give a gentle cleanse that isn’t drying to the skin.

Thank you!

UPDATE:  Sold out!

Soap for Sale

I live in a very pet-friendly complex.  It wasn’t that way when we moved in, but over the years and with changes in ownership, there are now dogs practically everywhere.  A little dog park was even installed a couple of years ago, specifically for pet owners to have a place to take their dogs and be able to take them off-leash and play freely for a bit. 

In the office, there is even a little table filled with dog treats so people can stop in with their dogs while they’re out walking, and pick up a snack for their fur baby. 

One day, while trying to think of possible soaps I might present to the other residents here, it hit me like a bolt out of the blue (after observing maybe a dozen people out walking their dogs over the course of a half hour, lol) – dog soap! 

Some of you might be amazed that anyone would think to make handmade soap for a dog, but I tell you, it was actually that very thing that got me started on this whole soaping journey to begin with!  See, my friend was breeding pure-bred dogs, and one of them developed a skin condition.  After lots of research, she came to the solution to make a soap specifically for her dog’s skin condition.  Well, that soap was not just good for dogs.  She gave it to many friends, including me, and we all swore by how amazing it was on our own skin.  I fell in love with the whole idea of making soap once I saw what the real thing could do for my own skin.

Management has graciously allowed me to offer my soaps in the office.  I have been working all day, packaging and designing labels and wrapping soaps and sticking stickers and designing a sign to display on the little table next to the dog treats.  I’ll be taking it over on Monday.

I am more than proud, and excited, and I wanted to share it with you, who have all been so supportive of me along this bubbly way.  🙂

Elemental Soap

Sometimes, you just have to go with the inspiration. 

I was watching a video that Clyde from Vibrant Soap was doing on the elements.  I’ve always loved things that express the elements and seasons.  Seeing it done in soap was so cool to me.  My head starting spinning with all kinds of ideas of how I might be able to make my own version of the elements in soapy form, and this is what came out. 

The “elements” are a combination of clear and coconut oil glycerin soap, embedded in a base of coconut oil cold process soap.  Colored with activated charcoal and black oxide; scented with Midnight Therapy fragrance oil. 

What’s not to love about the elements?  🙂

If you are interested in purchasing Elemental, or any of my other soaps, please email me at
