Try'll like it...

I brought in a bar of soap for our receptionist not too long ago. She and the other girls in the office "oooh'd and ahhh'd" over it for a while and wanted to know what other scents we had. I brought the list in for them and they "oooh'd and ahhh'd" over that, too, lol.

The next day our receptionist said she wondered if I had ever made something with pomegranate scent. Funny she should ask. I never have, but there was a bottle of Pomegranate Vanilla oil in the soap cabinet that had yet to be opened. I was hesitant to use it, thinking it was a summery scent and summer was almost over, it was something one of us picked up at Michael's which doesn't always have the best quality, etc. She talked me into it, though. Yeah, I give into peer pressure so easily. In this case, I am SO glad I did.

The outcome was this:

It smelled so good, she sat at her desk and just sniffed it all day before giving it back to me. Then she ordered an entire basket...included soap, salts, and lotion. Since then, I've sold another bottle of the Pomegranate Vanilla lotion.

What didn't sound all that great to me at first, is something that people just never know :).

Swirling Colors and Creamy Dreamy Orange Goodness!

I'm still working on swirling colors which isn't the easiest when working with M&P soap, but I kind of like the marbled look I get when pouring two colors into the mold at the same time. Sometimes it works...sometimes not so much.

With our Chocolate Mint Goat's Milk Soap, it worked wonderfully as you can see:

I've been craving an Orange Julius from DQ for days. While my tastebuds would love it, my shrinking (yay!) waistline would not. Instead of giving into temptation, I decided instead to give my eyes and nose a treat by making some Creamy Goat's Milk soap.

Therefore, I am pleased to present my dessert....Orange Cream Goat's Milk Soap!

Each bar is 4 ounces of creamy goodness and while I wouldn't recommend taking a bite of it, I WOULD recommend buying a few and taking a nice hot shower or bath while you send the hubby or boyfriend to bring back ice cream.


Even though we both (Amy and Misty) have LiveJournal accounts where we sometimes talk about our business, we wanted to have something separate that is just for Heathen's Hearth.

I thought this might be a great place to talk about what we do and how we do it. So what is it that we do? Make soap, of course! And other goodies!

Heathen's Hearth started out in the summer of 2007, as a part time hobby. What began simply as a way to enjoy quality time together as friends, and provide a creative outlet that we could both excel at and enjoy, turned into lots of experimenting, and ultimately to the products we are now proud to present to the general public.

We practice our craft in the heart of our home-the kitchen, which has in modern times, replaced the hearth, and heart, of homes that existed in times gone by. We hand craft all of our soaps in small batches, using only the finest materials available to guarantee their quality, including Creamy Goat's Milk or Silky Shea Butter bases. Starting with these high quality soap bases, we add fresh cosmetic grade natural botanicals, pure essential oils, and cosmetic grade fragrance oils to provide you with beautifully handcrafted soaps that look and smell as good as they will make you feel.

Once we regularly get posting in here, we'll have lots of photos of new creations, but in the meantime, visit us over at
