Simple Soaps For Simple Folks officially began business in January 2009 after the owner gifted some handmade goat milk soaps to friends and family in December 2008. A few Flea Markets and an approved application to the Downtown Rochester Farmers Market, and Simple Soaps For Simple Folks had a customer base. 

I handcraft cold process soap, which means the soap must cure for 4-6 weeks before it is sellable. I believe good things take time and patience; I love the texture and quality of my soaps after the curing period passes.

Handmade Bar Soap Descriptions:

* Patchouli & Ylang YlangWhat a groovy bar, man! This scented bar was due to multiple customer requests for a "Patchouli Bar." I used the Ylang         Ylang to soften and tone down the Patchouli's strong, spicy base notes.

* Pearberry -  Is a mouthwatering combination of pear, apple, peach, and melon with some floral notes and a musk base.

* UpliftThis bar was generated for all the Eucalyptus scent lovers out there! Eucalyptus, Rosemary, and Peppermint are the 3 essential oils that             contribute to the distinct scent of this bar.

* Terra RoseThis unique scent is earthy/woody with a nice floral touch. Traditional floral scent lovers agree --this bar gets two thumbs up!

* LemongrassThe lemongrass bar is quickly becoming one of my personal favorites; it has the citrus-y zing of lemon with a pleasant 

green, grassy overtone.

* PomagranateA super fruity blend of pomegranate, strawberry, pear, orange and coconut with some tones of vanilla and musk...DELISH!

* Peppermint w/Tea Leaf BitsWake up to a brisk peppermint blast! This bar of soap has some zip to it.

* Dirty DogDoes your favorite pooch need some extra special care when it comes to bath-time? Well, here's a bar of soap to bark about! It has a             blend of essential oils in it that will set your tail wagging because it's great for your canine companion and yourself.

* Tea Tree & BayAntiseptic meets spice! This bar attracts both genders, especially because Tea Tree essential oil has recently become well 

known in the public for its many uses.

* Scent & Fragrance FreeThe best thing for sensitive skins! If you know you react to fragrances/scents, and have issues with your commercially             made bars, PLEASE put this bar in your basket.

Lil' Scrubbers Bar Soap Descriptions: 

* Apple-licious Share some bath-times and good times with this crisp, juicy scent that will make you want to take a tiny nibble of the soap 

to be sure that it isn't a red, juicy apple!

* Sweet PeaAhhh, the lovely sweet pea is a classic spring scent that's lightly floral, pretty, and quite appropriate for the little 

"sweet peas" in your life.

* Cucumber MelonA summery, fresh smell that brings to mind sweltering summer days!

* Peach BlossomI wanted a scent that seemed truly peach--juicy, tart, and sweet. This is it!

Solid Hand Lotion Tube:

* PranaI'm a freak for Frankincense, so this one is MY fav: Sweet Orange and Frankincense essential oils!

* TerraTerra, another word for earth, was created for all the Patchouli addicts out there who couldn't get enough of it from the 

Patchouli/Ylang Ylang soap bar! Several customers have remarked that they wear this lotion as a "perfume" of sorts. Groovy!

* Winter A custom blend made with a tantalizing combination of warm, smooth French Vanilla and spicy chai tea overtones of 

cardamom, clove, nutmeg and cinnamon.

* EpiphanyTop seller here! Peppermint, Lavender, and Tea Tree make this one a crowd pleaser!

Lip Butter:

* BerryFruity, fun, and the lip butter you'll want to have for spring and summer enjoyment! The sweet, juicy strawberry in this lip 

butter practically pops from the tube to your lips. Made with certified organic olive oil, local beeswax, and a fragrance oil (synthetic flavor/scent), 

this tube of berry bliss glides smoothly onto your kisser as you apply it.

* TropicPineapple and coconut make this one sweet summer for your smackers! Pucker up and put some fruity, summer fun on your face with this     newest addition to the lip butter family.

* GreenWintergreen and Lavender essential oils are in this lip butter--a fabulous blend because Lavender is noted for it's soothing powers as 

well as it's antibacterial and anti-fungal properties.
