Handmade Soap - Specialty Soap Bars

Specialty Soap Bars

This section contains our special purpose, luxury, experimental and 'by request' soap bars for your enjoyment.

These are big bars, made in small batches of just 18 bars, so quantities are limited.

Varieties will come and go as demand dictates, but that also means here's your chance to say "Melissa I'd really like a batch like......" 

As an artisan, I NEED this specialty category as they're my chance to go out on a limb, have some fun, experiment, play and get in touch with some funky ingredients.

These are larger speciality bars and so do not contribute to the soap count for bulk discount.

Customer comments...

Thank you for the opportunity to trial your new shaving soap. I have used it daily for more than four weeks now, and have found it to be an excellent product, it lathers well, and I find that my disposable razors are lasting longer. In conclusion, I will recommend your product to my friends, and we will drop in to your shop on our next trip to Glen Innes.

Hello Melissa, 

I just wanted to drop you a line to once again thank you so much for the workshop on Saturday. 

If only Kylie and I started our journey of making soap with you we would be so much further along.  Your sharing of your knowledge and information was truly a blessing for us as I love your ethical attitude towards your techniques/ingredients which I also share.  This was the main driver for us to continue through until we discovered someone just like you.  We have wasted so much time and money trying to understand and wrongly interpret information from the USA to the point we were talking about giving up until now.  Soap making is something that we enjoy to do together for our families and it will just be so much more fun now.  (I almost feel the need to do a before and after video just to show you how much rubbish and stress we were adding to the process, we had a million containers weighing everything to the exact 0.00 gram – even bought expensive scales that could do this, thermometers everywhere not to mention our wastage with the essential oils). 

Your skill of being able to talk the science of soap making I could only imagine would match any science buff out there that would love to know more about the molecules etc. but only mentioning ‘saponification’  a couple of times made me laugh to myself…. all the other classes I have been to have spent more time talking about saponification and what it is to the point of not covering anything about the process of making the soap. 

Your promises of ‘I will show you how’ or ‘I know it will work’ has filled me with lots of confidence to now be making soap which I am proud of. 

I feel very privileged to have met you and to do a class with you.  A big thank you to your family for making the atmosphere a wonderful place to be.  

Loving my soap already! 

Thanks 

Suzie

My family were all down for a wedding and we bought lots of your beautiful products. I love your shampoo and conditioner it makes my hair lovely and soft. As i work in the pool all day i don't need extra chemicals in my products, this shampoo leaves my hair lovely and soft. Well done. Your soap is also a big favourite of mine also. Thanks for all your trouble. Lynda

Thanks for sending us the soap. We usually come over to Stanthorpe for a long weekend just to buy our soap from you (we live in Goondiwindi) but haven't been able to get there this year. We love Washpool Soap and were thrilled to know we could buy online. You must be very proud of your shop and website. I know we are.
