We are a family run business based in the picturesque village of North Queensferry, Located on the northern shore of the Firth of Forth, between the iconic Forth Bridge and the Forth Road Bridge. Just 10 miles from the centre of Edinburgh.

Humble beginnings

Hello and welcome!

I am Marie, a third-generation soap maker keeping my family's soap making tradition alive.

All started at my grandma’s kitchen back in the 80’s!

She was the first person to inspire my creativity in the kitchen, not only with food and baking. As a child we used to make soap together using three simple natural ingredients, not as fancy ingredients available these days.

Since 2015 we have worked hard to build a successful family business while pursuing our dream.

Our work ethic and passion for our products is what continues to help our soap company to grow, and it is our mission to continue producing ethical and sustainable products which are affordable and good for the whole family!

Thank you for stopping by and happy shopping!

Our Ethos

" Inspired by the beautiful Scottish moorlands, glens and hills"

 

"We love nature and are very conscious of finding ways to reduce waste by using recycled, ethical and eco-friendly materials to produce and finish our products" 

Our process

Our soaps are handcrafted to the last detail, hand-cut and hand-wrapped individually to make each bar very special.

Handcrafted with Organic Oils, Botanicals, Clays, Pure Essential Oils and Natural Colorants including Seeds and Powders that also add nutrients to the Soap.

All our organic botanicals and pure essential oils are delicately blended in our workshop to create a unique scent and a special soap to indulge your skin.

We produce the highest quality products in the most sustainable manner possible to respect the environment.
