Soap for Sale

Welcome to Soaping Passion

I decided to prepare this page because a few people have asked me how they can order my soap and I thought there may be a few more who read my blog and would also like to purchase some soap.

I will endeavor to keep this page up to date so if it is on this page, I have it – well, that is the plan, at least.

All my soap is handmade in Bridgetown which, for those who don’t know, is in the South West of Western Australia.

Unless otherwise stated, all soap is made by the traditional cold process method.  Soap is made from a chemical reaction of oils with sodium hydroxide.  After the saponification process, no sodium hydroxide remains, only saponified oils.

Cold process soap is 100% pure soap. It is not only decorative but feels gloriously luxurious on your skin.  Once you have used pure handmade soap you will not want to return to the commercial variety.

Where olive oil is an ingredient, I use extra virgin cold pressed olive oil from olives picked from our trees.  All other oils are purchases locally or from Perth.  When palm oil is used, I buy sustainable palm oil only.

If you live in Bridgetown, or thereabouts, and would like to buy some soap, you are welcome to come around and check them out.  Just send me an email.

If you live in Perth, I travel to Perth regularly and am happy to bring the soap to Perth  for you to collect.

Otherwise, I will need to post the soap.  Postage will be extra.  It will be charged using standard Australia Post rates which are pretty horrendous. They are:

  • less than 500gs:   $7.95
  • 500gs +:  within WA $10.55 + a distance charge
  • 500gs +:  interstate $13.80 +a distance charge

Three bars may be less than 500g, it will depend on their size and the packaging.  Four bars will definitely will take you over the 500 grams so you may as well buy more 🙂 .

I am only offering soap for sale to Australian customers.

All soap bars are presented for sale in small organza bags or, if there is molded decoration, a decorative box.

To extend the life of your handmade soap, allow it to dry out between uses.  Wet soap wears down quickly. Soap dishes should always be draining, ie have holes for water to run off or, better still, suspend the soap above the dish.  If you care for your soap, it  will last a very long time. 

If you would like to purchase some soap, you can contact me at pfgarden@iinet.net.au

I hope you enjoy using them.  I sure do.

Regards, Glenda

  2. It’s a jolly website. Maybe I’m just a silly old bugger . . . I can’t find where to place an order. Should I use this comment box ? Have you/will you make an equivalent to Pearson’s sand soap ? I remember it being absolutely the best, the very best, for pots.

  4. Hi, Glenda I enjoyed your blog so much I’m adding you to my fave blog list which I just started. I live in College Point, New York which is 12 miles from NYC- Manhattan. I make soap on occasion using regular craft supplies while you are a true artist! Australia is on my Bucket List! Meanwhile, I’m grateful for the internet and you! To be continued…Mary Bradshaw Duncan My friends call me Mimi and I hope you will, too!

  5. Oh I wish I lived in Australia or you could come up with a method of drying your soap to a tiny amount which could be mailed international and lovingly reconstituted like Celia’s sourdough starter!!

    • Fi, sometimes it takes a while for the inspiration for the name to come. I got Mont Blanc because a few people said it looks like a snow capped mountain and Maus came up with Turkish Delight.

Please, leave a comment - it makes me feel loved.
