Oooo, Australia is Full of Talented Soap Makers!


I luckily found this independent soap company this morning as I cruised the internet strip in my pajamas while I drank coffee... hungrily looking for a soap fix. I was feeling soap-bored, if you know what I mean. Every soap was kind of looking like every other soap and the descriptions were all blending into each other and blah, blah, blech. I got bored, but then I found, Beguile. In Sydney, Australia.










...and lately I have really been lovely the white creamy peaky topped soaps. So pure, so wintry and fresh looking. They look so moisturizing and luxurious to me.



Kathy is Beguile's soap maker and owner. You can check out Kathy's blog , too, where she writes about her soap making journey and shares photos of what she's up to in the studio. Check it out.

Why so many talented soap makers in Australia, I wonder? ;)

I would love to go to Australia - just to go on a soap tour! I also love Platypus Dreams.
