New Beginnings


Today is my first day of making soap in our new surroundings! After cleaning the kitchen thoroughly and nominating cupboards for storing supplies, I am ready to crack on with making Soap Cabin products again! 

It’s always strange starting again somewhere new (at least we’re roughly in the same area), but it is also fun to set up your space how you want it. We have more kitchen worktop space compared to before, which is good and less restrictive. 

Next job is to finish sorting out my new office/craft room! I used to have a lot of natural light and an amazing leafy view in the old place, which I miss a little, but it has definitely been a good move. Also a good opportunity for a clear out! 

This Weekend 

I’m currently plugging away at getting products made for our upcoming Christmas markets (Chalfont Crafty Collective and St Clement Danes School Chorleywood), as you can see from the photos above and below. I need to wrap and label these soaps and start on the next lot this weekend, as well as getting on with my regular wholesale order. I’m also thinking about what new products we can introduce this Winter…

We’re really looking forward to these two local events because we haven’t been able to take part in many markets most of the year due to putting our place on the market and now awaiting a move date. Hopefully this won’t happen too close to Christmas, which is the busiest time of year! Anyway, exciting times!

Check out our website for dates of events we’ll be at, or to purchase online 🙂

The Balm I Made on Friday 

Melted ingredients poured

After setting

I made a one-off skin balm for a friend of mine as per request. They’re not currently available on the website, but they usually come in a 50ml tin and will hopefully be back later in the year… The skin balm is full of natural goodness to help dry, damaged or eczema prone skin. Also makes a great balm for lips or feet, or all over!

Busy Day

I have lots to do today as I’ve had a busy week this week and not much time to start making a larger order that I need to get started on.  We also have the Chalfont Crafty Collective Spring Fair tomorrow. Thankfully I’ve got most things sorted for that, apart from soap samples and some bottling and labelling. 

Hoping it’s a good day tomorrow!
