Handmade natural soap has been the mainstay of our business since it began in 1999. What started out as a small internet company, quickly grew into a retail store, the bulk wholesale soap business, and the publishing of our books on making soap and aromatherapy.
Basically, it works like this: we make the soap for you here in our Nashville, TN workshop and when it arrives to you — you simply have to cut the loaves or blocks into bars, allow them time to dry and cure, then put on your own label and begin selling. No messing with lye or having to order and store carrier oils and essential oils in bulk. That’s our job. You only need to worry about cutting up and wrapping your soaps, giving you more time to focus on marketing your company and preparing for shows and markets.
Our handmade soaps are made in small, twelve pound batches. You can either order 5-packs of bars of soap, loaves of soap (makes about 10 bars of soap) or an entire block of soap (makes about 30 bars.) We use quality essential oils from trusted suppliers. The carrier oils used to make our soaps are a blend of: olive, soybean, coconut, and shea butter. Our focus is natural soap made with real essential oils and herbs, although we do offer a few fragrance oil selections as well.
After seeing it several places on this website, many may ask, what is soapbytheloaf.com? Our main company, Aromagregory Creative Inc. was formed in 1999 as a retailer of soap, bath salts, and oils. In 2005, we opened soapbytheloaf.com, selling bulk soap on the internet to other companies in need of handmade soap. This site, wholesalebulksoap.com is our “testing the waters” with using a content management system as a website. The soap by the loaf site is still up and running and serving our long-time customers. On that html website, the soaps are broken up into several pages and grouped by category. Here, we have tried to streamline the process by having three soap shopping pages: soap loaves, soap blocks, and soap bars, with an easy drop-down menu for quick and simple shopping. You are free to use either website, according to your taste. They both use the soapbytheloaf shopping cart. Your credit card statement will read: AROMAGREGORY CREATIVE INC.
HOW IS HANDMADE SOAP DIFFERENT THAN STORE BOUGHT SOAP?
Inexpensive soap found in grocery stores and the pharmacy are no longer what is called “soap.” These big corporation bar soaps are actually bars of DETERGENT. They begin with a base of beef fat (see sodium tallowate on the label) then coconut oil (not so bad). However, then they add in hardeners, whiteners, foam boosters made from chemical and fragrance made from chemicals. When you bathe with these detergent bars every day, your skin tries to fight off all the unnatural ingredients — alerting you to the problem by showing up as dry skin. With a natural soap made with good carrier oils and essential oils, your body has nothing unnatural to fight off. Over time, the skin begins to repair and take care of itself as it is designed to do. When switching to natural soap, most people report to feeling a difference in their skin within the first three days. We have several customers who have told us that after six months, they no longer need lotion.
DO YOU HAVE A MINIMUM ORDERING AMOUNT?
Yes, only $50.00
IF I NEED A SPECIAL FRAGRANCE OR COLOR, WILL YOU MAKE CUSTOM SOAPS FOR ME?
Sorry, we do not make custom orders. Our company offers you over 35 types of soap to choose from. Your new favorite already awaits you.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECEIVE MY ORDER?
Every batch of soap is made by hand, especially for you. This way, the soap is as fresh as possible and the essential oils at their most potent versus loaves of soap that have been premade and sitting on a shelf for months, waiting to be ordered. Because of this, we require a 10 business day lead time to create your soaps before they ship.
