A Special Thanks To Our Organic Loving Customers

plants growing from a seed



We’ve been a bit busy lately. We got our first order to cater a bridal shower and we’re thrilled! When we first started making holistic products, we never expected business to pick up the way it has. We knew that catering to a specific market would be challenging. The farmers and gardeners at SoapMuffin would like to thank all of you for your support and kind words.

If you’re still on the fence about all-natural products and what they have to offer, allow us to sway you. The general rule of thumb at our family-run company is this: If it doesn’t come from nature, don’t use it. That means fresh fruit and vegetable purees, fresh milk and all natural butters. The results are a clean, earth friendly, organic and holistic shop that you can trust and feel about.

If you are having a party, gathering, bridal shower or any other special event, consider us and get back to nature…with SoapMuffin.


P.S. Our newest gift raffle is well underway! Visit our shop for more information.

Bums The Word

Bums The Word Oatmeal Creme

Bums The Word Oatmeal Creme

Hydrocortisone is the same as the natural corticosteroid, cortisol, and is used to decrease inflammation in the skin. If corticosteroids are used long-term, on large areas of skin, raw skin, skin folds, or under airtight dressings (including nappies) they are absorbed into the body more.

This increases the risk of local side effects such as skin thinning, and those on other parts of the body, such as a decrease in the production of natural hormones by the adrenal glands. For this reason, continuous, long-term use of this medicine should be avoided wherever possible, particularly in children and on large areas of skin.

Why use a steroid when you can go natural?

We made this creme from raw Ghanaian Shea Butter, coconut oil, a dash of finely ground but smooth natural oatmeal flour to dry up the rash and a droplet of tea tree antiseptic/ anti fungal serum. The result is a Mother Nature approved salve that will:

1. Dry up that pesky rash
2. Soothe and heal your little one’s bum
3. Offer a protective barrier of moisture
4. Offer antiseptic properties with no harmful chemicals

This creme is also suitable for those suffering from itchy eczema, bug bites and poison ivy. I used this after suffering from insect bites while pulling up weeds in my garden. The creme dissolves very easily into your skin and provides relief from itching. Doesn’t your baby, and you, deserve an all-natural salve that has no harsh chemicals or additives? Grab one today at:

Protect Your Pet…The Natural Way

Animal Shampoo Set

Birch Tar Soap

A customer came up to me at a craft fair to tell me her dog had “bald spots.” She tried doggie shampoo from the vet and various chemicals to combat his affliction but nothing worked. I explained to her that parabens, polysorbate and aluminum were just a few of the chemical compounds in animal shampoo. They seep into his skin, entering his bloodstream and cause bald spots, itching, allergic reactions and attract fleas.

I gave her a bar of our Animal Shampoo called Birch Tar and told her to let me know after a couple of weeks if it worked. She was pleased. Birch Tar is made from the dry distillation of the bark of birch trees. People have benefited from the restorative qualities of birch tar for centuries. Acne, eczema, seborrhea, psoriasis, dandruff, and itchy skin have all been successfully treated with birch tar, and because of the naturally occurring salicylic acid (an organic plant hormone) and methyl salicylate (an organic ester)  in birch tar, it acts as a natural exfoliator that sloughs off dead skin and tones new skin.

Birch tar is also an excellent diuretic; it is used for body detoxification and cleansing. It helps enhance the body’s blood circulation and prevents toxins from collecting in muscles and skin. Birch tar can even be applied to small cuts and wounds to prevent infections and speed up the healing process because of it’s disinfectant and antiseptic properties.

Our all natural Birch Tar Soap is a stellar way to keep your furry loved one clean and healthy. If he or she just needs a gentle but effective organic cleanser, our Woof and Hoof Set is made with green tea extract to ensure a shiny coat.

Memories of My Childhood on the Farm

Oatmeal soap

My family works with our hands. We’ve relied on our skills in carpentry, fishing, steel construction, farming, sewing and yes, soap making, to live and thrive. We love it. I can remember when I was little and used to watch my mom cook in our kitchen, preparing delicious meals with the food grown from our farm. I remember her singing songs as she pinned our clothes on the clothes line outside. How I long for those tender, wistful memories.

Doesn’t time seem to fly nowadays?

No one seems to have the time anymore to do anything handmade. Furniture is made in cookie-cutter factories instead of in our garages where craftsmanship and quality was key. Clothes are made in sweatshops instead of by a loving aunt or grandma who took your measurements. And our food…


Instead of fresh, organically grown blueberries, strawberries and huckleberries that waited to be placed in a scrumptious pie or cake, we now have blueberries in a can, dripping with a too-sweet, sticky substance they tell us is “syrup.” How I long for the simpler days when families ate meals together and the TV was NOT center stage.

You know what I remember fondly?

The excitement of boiling tea leaves for our peppermint or lavender soap. It was an entire process! Picking the leaves, boiling them, straining them, letting the water cool down and deciding which soap was going to get the fragrant lavender water. At SoapMuffin, we hope to give you fond memories of a bygone era where things were a bit less complicated and quality mattered. We made very small batches of our soaps to ensure quality.

All of our handcrafted soaps are made fresh with real tea, buttermilk, goat milk, chocolate (yes…chocolate!) and Shea Butter from Ghana. Our little farm works hard to give each customer the best in skin care. Try one of our “muffins” today and feel the difference on your skin.

Acne: What Is It? And HOW Do You Get Rid of It?

Despite what doctors say, acne is a complicated medical condition that affects MILLIONS of teens, young adults and older adults well into the golden years. Acne, also called acne pustules or acne rosacea (redness) or simply “bumps” are the result of clogged pores from:

Dead skin cells

Debris/ Dirt

Oils from the face and body

“But what causes it and how do I get rid of it?” My organically-aware customers are always asking us how to get rid of it. Here’s the scoop. Acne is caused AND made worse by:


Bad/ Poor diet (sorry it’s true)



Air pollutants

Doctors like to claim that acne and food do not correlate but that’s not true! What you eat is the number one precursor of good health! That’s why organic foods and all natural products are the way to go. If you eat junk, your body secretes junk. It’s that simple, folks.

Organically grown foods with no pesticides or parabens, which can cause cancer and skin allergies/ reactions, are a great way to:

Support the farming community

Take care of Mother Nature

Take care of yourself and your family

Fight illness and disease WITHOUT harmful drugs

Acne is a disease. You cannot fight a disease with a chemical that causes MORE disease. You fight disease naturally with antioxidants from natural foods and products. Try our Garden Tomato Clear Complexion Soap made with real garden grown tomatoes. Eat more fresh, GMO-free fruits and vegetables and drink more water NOT soda. Your skin will be hydrated and your body will immediately feel the difference.

Tomato Soap

Our soaps are made fresh with no preservatives. Even though we never claim to cure any illness, using organic products like our tomato soap and an improved diet will make your skin healither, smoother and clearer.

Tomatoes: Mother Nature’s Fruit Called a “Vegetable”

Tomato Soap

Soooo…as you know, July is “Garden Tomato Soap Month.” Here’s a little fun info on this fruit called a vegetable:

1. A tomato plant can grow up to 10 feet

2. Produces fruit with red, pink, orange, green, yellow and black skins

3. Plum tomatoes are often eaten as “candy” in South America

4. California produces 90% of the United States’ tomato production

5. Active ingredient is “lycopene” which is Mother Nature’s antioxidant


That’s a lot for a small fruit!

Image what it will do for your skin. Check us out at for our Garden Tomato Clear Skin Soap. More to come fans…

Soap of the Month: Garden Tomato Clear Complexion

Tomato Soap

Yeah…yeah…I know what you’re thinking….It’s not July yet!

I know but I’m so excited to bring you this new and fantastic tomato soap that I just can’t wait! Did I tell you that I grow my herbs, fruits and vegetables myself? Yep, you read it correct, folks. I’m a gardener and a proud one at that. Since I love food (maybe a little too much? lol) and my folks are farmers and tradesmen/tradeswomen, I decided to incorporate my favourite fruit ( tomato is a fruit, not a vegetable ) into an organic soap to help my customers with the one thing I hear over and over again….

“Can you make something for acne?”

Now, don’t misunderstand me.

Acne is a complicated illness due to several factors. I’ll go more into it in my next post. But…tomatoes can help to kill harmful acne-causing bacteria. Try our garden fresh soap and feel the difference of farm-fresh products.
