If you like the idea of handmade soap but just don't have the time to whip up a batch like Erica and I did earlier this week, I found a couple of great looking shops to do your shopping at.
The first one is DeShawn Marie who says, "I've been making handmade soaps, candles, creams, oils, gifts and favors for over 14 years now. It is my full time job and I love it, I can't imagine doing anything else." She has a wide selection of items to choose from including gift certificates. Plus she provides optional gift wrapping for that special someone on your Christmas list.
The owner of Concord Soap Company makes soap in small batches using the cold press method. She states on her profile, "I LOVE to convert commercial soap buyers to handmade soap addicts! I'm tellin' ya...once you've tried handmade soap, you'll never buy commercial again! (and you'll want to convert everyone YOU know!)" There's a gift basket section plus body and bath care products, too.
