About Handcrafted Soaps by Bonnie



(and my family, of course)

Do I really need to say anything else? I love so much about what I do! I enjoy the creative process and the research and the learning and that makes those brain cells exercise and stretch. I love seeing someone’s face light up with they find that perfect fragrance in that perfect soap that feels so awesome on their skin. I love watching all the ingredients transform into something as wonderful as soap or body butter. I LOVE MY JOB!

A lot of people have asked me what made me get started. Have you ever looked at something and said “I can do that!”? Well that is exactly who I am. I am a crafter, an artisan, a scientist and a do-it-yourselfer (from making bread to putting up drywall to setting up my new website). I should have known that making soaps would transform my life, but I didn’t pay enough attention to the warnings in the forwards to all the books I read and online forums that I visited. But I had always wanted to make soap. (Just ask my Mom. I’m sure she’d be happy to tell you.) So here we are years later and the books were right. It is the perfect product to combine all the elements of art and science and creativity and I love it.

I still make small batches of handcrafted products and take pride in the presentation and packaging of them as well. I start with premium ingredients that turn the average into the extraordinary. After all, it’s the end result – how you feel when you use the products– that really matters. The packaging is just icing on the cake.

I started Handcrafted Soaps by Bonnie in late 2006 and have been going strong ever since. I finally changed my structure to an LLC in 2012, but other than that everything is the same. We are still located in Mead, Washington, just north of Spokane and west of the Idaho border. If you would like to contact us you can email me at bonnie@soapsbybonnie.com or call 509-464-4910.

To all of you - Thank you and Happy Shopping!
