Product Spotlight – Davey Jones’ Locker

Davey Jones' Locker
Today's product spotlight highlights a new offering, called 'Davey Jones' Locker'. The idea started out as a custom request from a local customer (isn't that how everything happens?!?), who wanted the scent of a famous soap in our vegan formula. Affectionately dubbed 'Dracula's Coffin' by one and 'Goth Bait' by another, this is certainly a deep, mysterious, strong, and alluring...

We Support the Lovin Soap Project

Handmade Carrot Soap that I purchased to support the Lovin Soap Project.
When I first started making soap I always knew I would like to donate my time as well as a portion of my soap sales to a charity. Through the years I have donated to various organizations, but not until my friend Amanda Griffin started the Lovin Soap Project did I truly felt a calling to reach out and not only donate but spread the word. So with this blog post, I would like to ...

I had made some custom shaving soaps before for an etsy customer in Australia, and had made a batch here and there for Father's Day so I decided to give it a go. I sent out some samples for a few ...

Happy New Year from the Tiki Bar!

Happy New Year!
I can not believe it is 2014 already. What a year it has been! I had our second child, completed my postdoc and taught my first college level class (and lab!), and had my first official year in business as "Tiki Bar Soap LLC." It has been a good year, with its ups and downs (mostly related to my health - I am fine but just dealing with some pesky issues). I have so many ...

Meet your maker online

Lavender Lotion
Last month I participated in 'meet your maker', a monthly feature of the maker's market in Tuscaloosa, AL. The maker's market carries my products along with crafts from over 100 other vendors. While I was there I was browsing around, looking at all of the other wonderful crafts and items from the other artists. This gave me an idea - what if I had a 'meet your maker' segment of...
