About Susan’s Soaps and More

How Susan’s Soaps and More began . . .

Susan’s Soaps & More

Susan’s Soaps came about as a result of eczema I began experiencing on my hands and legs after the birth of my son, over 28 years ago. I had been to dermatologists, but nothing was helping a large patch of eczema on my leg.

One day I went into a natural skincare store and was sold a bottle of cream rinse which the salesperson mentioned that I could also use as a shaving cream. Several months later I realized that the patch of eczema was gone. It hit me how important it is what you put on your skin.

Earlier I had ordered a book on how to make soap, mainly because the pictures looked so yummy! I decided to give it a try. First for myself, then for gifts and finally for sale (at the urging of my local health food store owner.) I eventually added additional products and Susan’s Soaps & More was born.

. . . to Where Susan’s Soaps & More is today.

Today Susan’s Soaps and More is a home-based business that sells both retail and wholesale. I create aromatherapy soaps and skin care products for people who value natural, chemical & cruelty-free products that delight their senses.

 I want the overall experience to be a balm to your spirit!

  1. I have eczema and psoriasis which I’d prefer not to be using steroid creams on to the degree I am now. Can you suggest some of your products which have been the most beneficial for these issues?

      Hello Jane,

      Thanks for reaching out. I usually recommend products with the essential oils of lavender, patchouli and/or tea tree in them. However, there are other essential oils that can also help such as frankincense. Everyone’s skin is different, but mine does much better staying moisturized. I use my Frankincense & Myrrh or my Lavender Sage Body Oil usually twice a day to help with this. I also avoid detergents that make my skin irritated as well as try to drink plenty of water. Try to avoid anything that would make your skin itch. In my case since it is primarily on my legs, I try to make sure and keep my legs shaved regularly as otherwise I tend to want to scratch. As I am sure you know once you start scratching it is hard to stop. I don’t know if you read my blog article How I Got Help with Eczema, but it might have some additional help for you.

      I hope that helps.

    I bought your frankincense and myrrh body oil and I love it. Would like to buy more but can’t find on your web site. Hope you haven’t discontinued it.

      Hi Cynthia,

      I am sorry you are having trouble finding the Body Oil but so glad you have been enjoying it. We do still make the Frankincense & Myrrh and it is listed along with the other Body Oil Scents. Here is the direct link: https://www.susansoaps.com/shop/natural-body-oil/
      For future reference you can find it under Body & Face > Natural Skin Care > Natural Body Oil.
      Please let me know if I can be of further assistance. Best, Susan

    Saw you in our SEN Mastermind this morning – I would love to order from you!

      Hi Donna,

      Thanks for your interest and for reaching out. I used to ship internationally and then last year changed platforms and had not yet set it up. Give me a couple of days to sort out pricing and options and I will get back with you.

      Hi Donna,

      I have enabled shipping to Canada so it is possible now, but we only ship there via USPS Priority Mail.
