New Natural Soaps Handmade by Heirloom Soapworks

New Handmade Natural Soaps for September 2014

We have been working hard (well, o.k….it feels more like playing) designing and creating new handmade soaps for the upcoming Fall/Winter season.  Several of our new creations are “natural soaps” in the truest sense of the term, including pure essential oils for scents.

Other new handmade soaps are 98% natural, the only synthetic ingredient being skin-safe, phthalate-free fragrance oils.  (some scents that our customers love simply can’t be made without them!)

Here is a peek at a few handmade soaps on the curing rack:

Customer favorite “Mr. Sensitive” will be returning in September.  It is our 100% natural soap that’s completely unscented and designed for sensitive skin.  New for the Fall release is “Oatmeal Castile.”  Sure to become a customer favorite, this all-natural soap is made using 100% olive oil (known for mildness & skin conditioning) and organic oatmeal.  This will be a super-gentle face soap, baby soap and body soap!

The last new soap I will tease you with is called September Love, and is currently waiting to be cut….just look at those colors!  A romantic “Love Spell-Type” scent is sure to be a hit with customers!

St. Louis Handmade Soap and Soap Making Classes

As you probably know, the short list of handmade soap shops in the St. Louis area now includes our Heirloom Soapworks Handmade Soap Shop in historic Lebanon, IL., but did you know that we now offer soap making classes?

Soap Making 101 Classes:  Yes, I am finally able to teach soap making in our wonderful art classroom, located in beautiful, historic downtown Lebanon, IL. :)

I have held several classes already this spring, and they have been a blast.   With a maximum of 6 students per class, there is plenty of individual instruction.  Each student comes away with both knowledge AND experience from this 100% hands on class, PLUS they get to take home two big bars of soap that they created from scratch!  Each class lasts approx. 2 hours, includes all supplies and costs just $30.   (“Soap Making 201″ will be coming soon, where we will delve into more complicated “artsy” designs!)

Please call Holly at the Tiadaghton House for upcoming class dates and times: (618)808-0311.

100% Natural Melt & Pour Soap Base!

100% Natural Melt & Pour Soap Base?  Impossible?  Not when I make my own! :D

That’s right, we have been wanting to add adorable, decorative kids’ soap to our product line, but when I researched melt and pour bases…..well….YIKES!!  Chemicals, chemicals everywhere!  NOT what I wanted to offer parents to use on their kiddos.

I even went so far as to order a “how to” book on melt & pour soap bases a few years ago.  Sadly, the recipes contained in the book were no more natural that the pre-made bases.

What’s a girl to do?  I was busy, distracted….the new shop, blah blah blah, and so the hunt stalled.   Well, my Dear Hubby recently expressed interest in the art of melt and pour soap making, so my hunt for a handmade natural melt and pour recipe resumed.

I am happy to report that I found a recipe online with NO artificial ingredients, I tweaked it a tad & it actually turned out!!  Here it is in the loaf mold cooling:handmade melt and pour soap by heirloom soapworks










Here are a couple of experimental soaps using the base:handmade m and p flowers










While Hubby is developing new designs and learning the tricks of melt and pour soaping, this much we know for sure:  this soap is a healthy, fun soap that contains only pure, natural ingredients that folks can feel good about their kiddos using (and hopefully kids might wash more as a result? -We can only hope!)

Happy Soaping, everyone!   ~Becky

“True Christmas” Handmade Soap Trio

Handmade Christmas Soaps are here!

There are few things I enjoy more than freely expressing my faith through my work. (Being self-employed does have it’s advantages!)  Christmas seems like one of the best times to do so, as with all the hustle and bustle and secular distractions….well, it can take a person’s mind off of what Christmas truly celebrates -the birth of Our Savior, Jesus Christ.

It’s this most blessed event which I hope to convey (albeit with the most humble of materials -soap) in this year’s Christmas Gift Set from Heirloom Soapworks:

True Christmas by Heirloom Soapworks








This set includes three full-sized bars of natural soap, with the tangy-sweet scents of citrus and pine.  Whether you’re looking for a gift for your Pastor, Sunday School Teacher, or a favorite brother or sister in the faith, this set is sure to be appreciated!  Reserve yours now on our Facebook page, as supplies are very limited.

Happy Soaping everyone!  ~Becky

“Luke 2:7″ Christmas Handmade Soap -your opinion, please…

To glitter or not to glitter, THAT is the question!

The limited edition “Luke 2:7″ Christmas soaps are on the curing rack, but I can’t decide on one thing:  are they prettier and more evocative of Baby Jesus’ presence: with glitter or without?

Here’s a picture of both with and without glitter, please comment to let me know which you prefer:

Luke 2 vs7 Soaps by Heirloom Soapworks

“And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in strips of cloth and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.” Luke 2:7

The camera doesn’t pick up all of the glitter, but I think you can get the idea!


Thanks for your input, and Happy Soaping everyone! :)

New Handmade Soap Shop in St. Louis (Metro East)

There’s a New Handmade Soap Shop in St. Louis!

O.K., well, we’re technically about 20 minutes from downtown, on the Illinois side of the St. Louis Metro Area, and while the shop/studio is new, we have actually been making soap since 2002, but I digress.

Heirloom Soapworks Handmade Soap is now officially open in beautiful, historic, downtown Lebanon, IL!  We are so excited to be the FIRST handmade soap shop on the Illinois side of the St. Louis area, and ready to serve up some fine, locally made bath goodies to all the folks in the St. Louis area, both East & West of the Mighty Mississippi! :D

Our shop/studio is located right on “the brick street” at 111 W. St. Louis St., inside the Tiadaghton House.  Hours are Wed.-Sat. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday Noon -4 p.m.

I have been collecting pieces for the store since early last Dec.;  arranging and re-arranging things in my mind.  I know many of you are curious, so without further ado here are some pics of the new soap shop/studio:

Heirloom Soapworks Soap Shop

Heirloom Soapworks,
111 W. St. Louis St.
Lebanon, IL 62254

What do you think of my vintage-inspired bathtub soap stand?  Hubby made it for me, and I couldn’t be happier with it -what a guy! :)   He also transformed my work counter/cabinet with waiscoting and crown molding.  And built the table below that holds my sink trio.  Speaking of sinks, that a 1923 Kohler pedestal sink that my sister Martie found for me (along with my 1921 white wall mount sink) in Champaign, IL.


My vintage sink collection finally has a home (at least for 3 of them!) Looking from left to right: “Sky Blue” 1962 American Standard,  1921 Kohler in white,  1950 American Standard  (sometimes referred to as “Mamie Pink” -unwittingly inspired by Mamie Eisenhower)  I love how this display turned out, and customers seem to appreciate it too!

Our studio is nestled upstairs, and the Tiadaghton House’s main shop below is filled with some AMAZING local art -from fiber art, pottery, jewelry & paintings to some gorgeous Stickley furniture.  Worth the drive just to see the downstairs, we hope while you’re visiting you’ll venture upstairs to pick up some handmade soap and bath/body goodies!

Happy Soaping, Everyone!  ~Becky

Handmade Soap “Lavender Creme 2013″

Should a handmade soap that’s been a bestseller for years ever get a facelift?  Well, I happen to think so… a matter of fact, I believe our 100% natural lavender soap, “Lavender Creme” has earned a new look.

Please note that the moisturizing formula for this lavender soap will stay the same.  Handmade soap that’s this rich with fresh goats milk, fresh yogurt, unrefined shea butter, mango butter, avocado oil and lavender essential oil is hard to improve from a performance standpoint…..but I think we’ve succeeded in making it prettier than before.

But what do YOU think?   Which natural soap is more appealing to you?
