Soap for Sale

008absolutefinal

Welcome to Soaping Passion

I hope you like my soap.

Soaping has become a real obsession with me.  It started as a casual hobby but then I found I wanted to make soap all the time.  Soap started taking over my life and my house.

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.  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 pick up.

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:   $7.60
  • 500gs – 1kg:  $15.70

Four bars of soap will take you over the 500 grams so you may as well buy more 🙂 .

I am only offering soap for sale to Australian customers.

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.

Where olive oil is an ingredient, I use extra virgin cold pressed olive oil from olives picked from our trees.

When palm oil is used, I buy sustainable palm oil only.

Unless otherwise stated, all fragrance oil is Brambleberry fragrance oil.

I have also started making glycerine soap (which I just love).  Glycerine soap is made by: first making cold process soap, then cooking it until all the oils are completely saponified (ie, it is completely neutralised).  You then add solvents (alcohol, sugar and glycerine) to dissolve the soap, giving it a translucent appearance.

All soap bars are presented for sale in small organza bags. Where I have limited numbers of a certain soap, I will list the number available.

I hope you enjoy using them.  I sure do.

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

  1. 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!

  2. 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.
