Our manufacturing studio is stuffed full with new summer soaps. We're brain storming and creating yummy new flavors that are wrapped with summer inspiration. We are also whipping up fresh new blends. Our latest new lines evoke warm summer breezes and mild summer eves. Our new lines are available at our brick and mortar.
Summer time and the living is easy. We reflect upon those thoughts and reminiscing about summers past.
Country fairs, lake houses, and fire flies inspire us to create unique back to basics soaps and sundries.
"The world's favorite season is the spring.
All things seem possible in May."
- Edwin Way Teale
Isn't she lovely?
Bittersweet is filling our stainless steel kettle with a variety of spring, summer soap.
It seems pretty odd to start thinking about the holidays in July, but since our cure frame is six weeks, we're always a couple of months ahead on production.
For now, we'll concentrate on May, and make every attempt to take in her natural beauty.
I'm growing white sage and sweet grass and my fingers are crossed that my garden hydrangeas will produce plump sea foam green, and ginger pink blooms. Usually they begin to bud in June.
Wishing you a glorious spring!

We celebrated a fabulous May Day at our brick and mortar. It was a joy to hand out May Day baskets to our wonderful customers that attended. Thanks for coming.
Fast speed ahead to Mother's day, and we've fastidiously selected a grouping of some of our favorite things from Bittersweet. Artisan soap, soaking salt, lip balm, and organic cotton mitts create a unique bundle.
We'll be announcing the "scent of the month", and introducing new soaps in the merry month of May.
Keep posted, as our menu changes quickly as we sell out of soap.
We hope you have a few days to take in all the goodness Spring has to offer.
Best wishes for a blessed Spring.

Five years has passed since we moved our shop inside the beautiful century old home. The changes that have occurred over the past five years are mind blowing, to say the least!
We've scattered our uncommon shop with amazing new products, clothing lines, and accessories, and now inhabit most of the first floor.
We're looking forward to another fulfilling year ahead, and plans are in place to make even more changes at our brick and mortar.
Our Perfumery and "Scent Your Own" department is in demand. We've already expanded the popular service to accommodate an array of happy customers. We plan to cultivate and grow this department even more.
Each month we'll be presenting a yummy new Scent of the Month in addition to our Custom Scent Department.
Of course, we won't forget to include a new glorious menu of moisture rich olive soaps. We're busy manufacturing soaps throughout the year. The cart du jour advances with the seasons, and you never know what scent will capture your heart. Of course, if it's retired, you may always recreate it in our fragrance department.
We're excited to be offering these unique offerings.
Best wishes for a safe and happy New Year.

I'm busy whipping up an assortment of olive and coconut soap! This is the time of year, when I pull up my sleeves and dedicate my days to making soap.
Bittersweet Soap is similar to a fine wine, as it requires a lengthy time for the ultra rich blend to season, (up to six weeks.) My recipe is finicky, and also demands above freezing temperatures during the making. I believe the extra time is well worth the wait! I urge you to compare other hand made soap on the market. As you unwrap the beautiful handmade Italian paper, rub your fingers over the silky bar, and begin using it, you'll immediately notice the ultra rich creamy lather. I compare it to a lotion bar.
The wrapping... Each beautiful bar is hand wrapped in stunning hand made Italian paper. We believe the outside should be as pretty as the inside!
I'll be adding new seasonal soaps to the menu as they become available.
If you're searching for a unique, extra special gift, might I suggest, saying it with soap!
