About Us

I always loved the fragrances and bright colors of companies like Bath & Body Works but found the products always left my skin feeling itchy and dry. I thought I was only able to tolerate bland, unscented products until one day I received the gift of handmade soap - my skin never felt better!

I wanted to learn as much as I could about soap. I started watching as many videos as possible and researching for many months before getting the courage to make my first batch. One batch became many, and friends and family all were eager to try a bar. After carefully perfecting my recipes, Sweet Escapes Soapery was born. Bright fun colors and sweet scents ARE possible using ingredients that your skin loves!

My passion for soap and entrepreneurship lead me to pursue this dream full time. It is truly my dream and that's why you can tell that every product is handmade with love. Everything is made in small batches and packaged with care. You can feel good purchasing from a small, women-owned business. Great quality self care products at prices that normal people can afford.
