I’ve always been one to support small businesses, especially ones that make crafts and products. I appreciate the time and effort they put into each thing that they create. I love to go to craft shows and one of my favorites stops are the handmade soap tables. I’ve tried some that I was not a fan of, so I was intrigued when I made a connection with Emily. Her soaps were gorgeous and I was excited to try it!
Emily‘s Handmade Soaps are handmade in small batches by Emily Davis, a longtime resident of Des Moines, WA. They use vegan-focused ingredients and include combinations of oils, butters, earth clays, and other botanical ingredients to enhance your daily bathing ritual. While the purpose of soap is to clean you, Emily‘s Handmade Soaps endeavors to make nature-inspired soaps that are lovely to look at, sensational to smell, and add a little luxury to your daily routine.
My favorite thing about Emily’s Handmade Soaps, is that she takes pride in the ingredients that she uses and carefully labels everything so you know exactly what you are getting. Plus, it helps when you can pronounce everything on the label.
When my mailman dropped off my package he said, “something smells good in there.” He was right too. I didn’t even have to open my package to know what was inside. When I opened it, it smelled so good! I could almost tell the kinds of “flavors” or “types” they were, without looking at the label. What I love is that they aren’t made with harmful fragrances, so even though they smelled so strong, it wasn’t overwhelming. Once I got rid of synthetic fragrances in the things I used in my home, I became more sensitive to smell, I get headaches easily when things are artificially fragrant. Emily’s soaps were different. They were wonderful!
I got 2 different kinds. Grapefruit Orange and Lavender Rosemary… Aren’t they pretty??
The soaps are beautifully made. They lather well and really conditioned my hands and left them extremely smooth. Next, I’ll be using this as body soap! I have pretty sensitive skin due to psoriasis. Emily’s soaps gave me no problems at all.
I really can’t get over how pretty they are.. Emily definitely uses her own creative ways to keep things as natural as possible.
