Why Handcrafted Soap?

One important reason that we hand craft soap is to reduce the ever-growing toxic burden on the environment and our bodies.

Angelic Soap was originally created for my family's personal use, as we were growing increasingly sensitive to commercial cleansers, soaps, shampoos and clothes detergents.

We were determined to create products that not only were effective as healing cleansers, but utilized only gentle, non-irritating ingredients. 

We also wanted some luxury in usage, as well as no animal by products.

Today, I am happy to say that our skin and hair is healthy (even our pets) and clean! In fact, I regularly receive compliments on my complexion. My reply - I use Angelic Soap!

Most people purchase soap based on scent. However, not everyone can tolerate scent on sensitive facial and body skin.

The skin absorbs almost everything that is topically applied, so we must be cautious and conscious in our choices. This includes fragrance.

This choice becomes critical if one of us is ill. 

Help your body heal by reducing its toxic load - and all that entails.

In the cosmetic/beauty world, there is a mantra - "do not use soap on your face". The soap referred to  is commercial soap, which is basically a detergent. 

Commercial soap's glycerin is siphoned off, sold as a by product, then chemicals are added to up the bubble ante. 

Synthetic colorants and bad fragrance oils make the commercial soap pretty and uniform.

Finally, industrial fans 'cure' the commercial soap in a speedy fashion. The bars are ultimately sold in great quantities and at a somewhat low price.

Real, handcrafted soap is not a detergent. It is not mass-produced. Typically, this type of artisan soap is not a huge profit maker. 

The Big Commercial Interests do not like this trifecta.

The method, in my opinion, that provides the kindest facial/body cleansing bars is the cold process method. 

This old fashioned, cold process method preserves the vegetable glycerin that is a natural by product of the saponification process.

Additionally, there is complete control over all ingredients - and Angelic Soap uses the very best.

We do not use surfactants or sulphates to increase bubbles in the lather - the bubbles come from the vegetable oils chosen, as well as a nice, long curing period. 

This aging period generally lasts from 4 weeks to (my ideal) 3 months. 

This period is important to lower the ph to an acceptable level for use. It also dries all of the water (or other liquid) out of the soap, which assures a bubbly, hard bar. 

Generally, the older the cold process soap, the milder and better-lathering the bar.

As far as body washes go, I challenge you to read your labels.


Please give a good, hand crafted soap a try. It will be a different experience in terms of lather and scent, but your skin and the environment will love it.

May we suggest Angelic Soap's  Rosewater Butter Cream or Vata Shea Ayurvedic Cleansing Bar

Both of these hand made soaps yield a rich, low-lying lather that acts more like a creme cleanser.

The  Rosewater Butter Cream is made of primarily raw, organic cocoa butter and organic coconut cream with a dose of healing castor oil ("The Palma Christi").

Vata Shea Ayurvedic Cleanser is a splurge with jojoba, avocado, sweet almond and apricot kernel oils, laced with raw, organic shea butter. My skin is currently loving this soap. 

These soaps rotate in and out of our home's soap dishes, with the addition of Rose Pitta Ayurvedic Cleanser in the summer.

 We promise that these bars (in fact, none of Angelic Soap's offerings) will not leave your precious skin feeling stripped or tight. 

Good for the whole family - right down to baby.

In Truth, Love and Beauty,

Angelic Soap

Scents of Antiquity

I am very pleased with some of my new soaps! The two brand new soaps featured in this post are now LIVE in the shop.

Lost Atlantis Crystal

Lost Atlantis Crystal is a bright, clean incense-based soap that is more illuminating than dusty. 
The scent is more lavish than most of Angelic's creations and is partially derived from incense, juniper and black pepper essential oils. 

Lost Atlantis Crystal was created to be crystalline in appearance, thus the only color added is a deep, dark blue horizon line and a heap of shimmering, glittering mica on top of each bar.

Lost Atlantis Crystal

Next, we have Egyptian Kyphi, a mysterious scent of an ancient concoction. 

Kyphi was so sacred that it was believed to follow the Pharoah into the Afterlife.

Egyptian Kyphi

The scent of Angelic's Egyptian Kyphi is so rich and complex, that I worked on it for quite a long time. 

I am so happy with the results! 

Juniper berries, honey-soaked figs, spices, incense and lots of smoky myrrh resin (and many more notes) result in a scent that defies description.

Egyptian Kyphi is beautiful and rather Egyptian in appearance, thanks to the deep Red Reef clay, black mica and gilded tops with puffs of 'smoke'.

Dragon's Blood Resin

Rue Herbal Shea Soap Dragon's Blood Resin is reputed to be able to break hexes and purify. Angelic Soap's Dragon's Blood also features Red Reef Clay to purify the body in a nice ritual bath or shower. The scent is not easily described, but readily recognizable. Our Dragon's Blood is fortified with sandalwood oil for additional purification and a sexy scent!

Rue Shea
No self respecting witch would be without the magickal herb, Rue! Remover of curses, bad luck and hexes, Rue was a sacred herb of the Celts. Angelic's Rue Soap is created from the freshest, organic vegetable oils, infused with our garden grown, organic rue. There is also ground rue incorporated into the soap and sprinkled on top of each bar. Clary Sage ("clear eye") essential oil is beneficial for clear vision and vetiver provides grounding.

Longing for a respite after the long, hot summer?

How about an international escape via our newly listed soaps?

Black Temple Incense Shea is one of those 'sleeper soaps'. 

A fantastic, lush, creamy soap with a gorgeous scent. Black Temple Incense Shea is beautiful too - laced with veins of ground black coffee beans, shades of warm coffee with cream, pale mauve and topped with orchid and gold mica.

The soap is chock full of organic oils and butters, scented with Nag Champa, Frankincense, black coffee and musk. Think Jo Malone's Black Cafe Vetyver meets Nag Champa.

The lucky people who have sampled this treat become devotees. 

Pretty enough for women and hunky enough for men, Black Temple Incense Shea is a winner!

Why not spoil yourself with our shaving soap?

Loads of French Pink Clay and raw, organic shea butter combine with essential oils of dark, Indonesian Patchouly and lively Bourbon Geranium to make this an all purpose luxury soap with aromatherapy properties for men and women.

 For a more feminine twist on the shaving bar, try the "Pour Femme" version. Basically the same recipe, but a different shape and a little sweeter with the addition of Rose Geranium essential oil.

I personally discovered shaving soap about 3 years ago. Now, I look forward to using it all summer long at the sink, bath and shower! No need to shave - this soap is superb as a cleansing bar!

No need for a shaving brush, I let the bar do most of the work. The French pink clay is reputed to gently draw impurities out of the skin, while providing 'slip' for your razor. Of course, the shea butter is super moisturizing. The scent is delightful and really elevates this bar to true luxury status.

Simplify your routine - try a bar today!

Sensual Jasmine Velvet Shea

Lush jasmine lovers rejoice!

Angelic Soap has a few new soaps in the shop that rival some of your favorite scents on the market.

Start with Angelic's Sensual Jasmine Velvet Shea .....

Sensual Jasmine Velvet Shea

This soap's scent is quite heady and lavish. Sweet notes of sugar join gorgeous, intoxicating jasmine petals, multiple florals and wood notes to create an unforgettable, heavy, Asian jasmine fragrance.

The sensual part of this soap does not end with the deeply feminine scent. It continues on with the "Velvet Shea" recipe, which contains large amounts of raw, organic shea butter laced into a basic soap of organic palm kernel and sunflower seed oils.

With any of the "Velvet Shea" recipe soaps in the Angelic Soap shop, do not expect a bubbly experience, but a lotion-like lather that is very soothing to stressed skin.

I fell in love with jasmine after growing several different varieties in my gardens. My experience with the jasmine flowers of Asian origin (not French, which is crisp to my nose) is similar to being lulled into a much different state of being and mind by those precious blooms. 

Sensual Jasmine Velvet Shea captures the narcotic-like qualities of jasmine, initially sweetens things up a bit, then all nestle softly against creamy woods.

The Splendor of the French Orangeries

I cannot stop smelling this gorgeous soap! 

L'Orangerie Shea is dedicated to the many orange blossom groves of France. 

An exquisite blend of essential oils like bitter orange, cedar, vetivert plus orange blossom water give this soap a fresh, romantic and completely therapeutic aroma! 

 I have tried to create many different versions of the orange blossom scent over the years, but this soap has finally captured what I wanted.

The rustic appearance of the soap is reminiscent of Provence, but the gilded topping hearkens of Versailles.

New Richer Soap Recipe

Our new "Velvet Shea" soap recipe is being very well-received by our clients! 
I used to only make this soap in the dead of winter when skin is soooo stressed by the elements and indoor heating. However, the hot summers, windy conditions and air conditioning (especially where I live) begged the question: why not offer this rich, moisturizing recipe in a few bars for ALL seasons? So far, so good. 
Angelic Soap has an assortment of different recipes and scents for any body or face. 
It is important to check the ingredients for any soap that you may be interested in purchasing. "Velvet Shea" contains a HUGE amount of shea butter - much more than our regular shea soap - and other goodies to make it not necessarily as bubbly, but more emollient and moisturizing to the skin.
It really does feel like velvet .... and your skin will too!
This soap is very nice if you gently exfoliate or dry brush your skin before use. 
No need to venture outside your own shower for a spa experience!
Fleur de Caribe Velvet Shea
Pictured above is just one of the Velvet Shea series: Fleur de Caribe.
This soap, unlike some of the other Angelic Soap, is lavishly scented. The scent is mind-blowing! Very sweet and tropical, like a hibiscus crossed with ylang wafting from deep blue water.
From the beginning, Angelic Soap has been created with sensitive skin in mind, so many of our batches are light on fragrance. We use as many plant-based, essential oils as possible.
Scent can be irritating to some people's skins - especially complexions.
Our Vata Shea Ayurvedic Recipe, Pure Castile or Rosewater Butter Cream Soaps may be a better choice for a facial cleanser, a baby, or a sensitive body.
All three of these soaps feature different recipes and are light-to-unscented.
For summer, the Rose Pitta Ayurvedic Soap is an excellent choice for skin that needs cooling (shows signs of inflammation, heat, redness). Pitta Rose also features a different formulation than any of the other Angelic Soaps, the lighter oils and butters are specifically chosen for sensitive, 'red', over-heated, cranky skin.
It pays to read the descriptions and the ingredient lists.
Have an Angelic Week, Beautiful Ones!

Ready for Spring?

There are a few floral soaps in the shop - nothing cloying, or overly sweet. 

Below are a few suggestions for those of you who are anxious for spring!

Cherry Blossom Butter Cream
Love Letter
Magick Shea
All three of the above soaps contain varying amounts of superior grade clays, which make them wonderful for shaving or a bit of extra cleansing when skin turns 'combination' in response to environmental changes.

There is only one bar of Cherry Blossom Butter Cream left in stock. Pure sweet cherry blossoms, as if all the tress were blooming at once, folded into our signature organic coconut cream and cocoa butter recipe.

Love Letter is a mysterious fragrance blend of white rose, smoke, dust and incense. This soap is created with our vegetable oil recipe, enhanced with organic, raw shea butter, and gilded with gold mica - just like those memories.

Magick Shea is a perennial favorite with any one who smells it - man or woman! Gorgeous blend of bourbon geranium, French lavender, blood orange and black patchouli essential oils create an extremely well-balanced scent. This scent is wrapped into our raw, organic shea butter recipe and topped with a generous amount of Red Reef Aussie Clay. As though there are two bars in one soap, Magick is bewitching.
