I love to make soap!! My passion began many years ago when I first read about the benefits of hand crafted soap. I have gone from learning the very first and important steps to finally trying out my very first "pure Olive Oil" soap. It was ugly and smelled funny and I was not the first to try it in a practical application. Finally, one day my sister said "Give me a piece of it and I'll try it myself." I said "Are you sure?" Her reports: "Other than the fact that it had no added scent it was a wonderful bar of soap." I was hooked from that point on; researching and finding new scent and essential oil blends to make it smell better, trying different oils and butters to make it firmer, testing a few minerals to make them "pretty". 

As a logical progression of my passion for the art of handmade natural soaps Dirty Water Soap Works was born in the spring of 2007. I am always looking for new recipes and as a result my soaps are constantly changing with exciting new scents and imaginative creations. I always have the tried and true formulas and favorite scents that stick around to be enjoyed year round. As well, I throw in a few seasonal scents, to mix things up. 

All of the soaps are made in small batches, hand measured, hand stirred and hand poured. Each formula used has been created and tested by myself and the review board before going up for sale.
