About this Product
Paradise is just one beach away, or in this case one bar of soap away. Wonderfully clean, and refreshing scent of cool clear water. It possesses a blend of lavender, jasmine, oakmoss, musk and sandalwood. This scent appeals to both men and women.
Every batch is made in small quantities and every soap is cut, packaged and labeled by hand. I take great pride in crafting my artisan soaps, but please remember, LIFE IS SHORT, USE THE PRETTY SOAP!
To Use: Keep soaps in a dry, ventilated area when not in use, preferably on a draining soap dish, which will help the soaps last far longer. You can also cut your bar in half if you feel the bar is too big or if you are anxious to try your next scent!
Price listed is for 1 bar of soap

Meet the Maker
Thank you for visiting my site! My name is Doreen McKeag, owner and creator of 9 Lives Soapery, where I create artisan, homemade soap. I am born and raised in Southeastern Connecticut and live with my husband, John, and one of the inspirations of my business name and logo, Gracie, a domestic long-haired cat. I have always had a cat in my life and love their quirky, independent nature. Isn't she beautiful? My husband and I enjoy traveling, visiting local breweries, watching football, and when I'm not soaping, I'm riding my Echelon spin bike, my second addiction next to soap.
I started soap making as a hobby, creating soap for my husband and my family. I've always been one to jump right into new projects feet first, learning as I go. I learned how to crochet from watching YouTube videos and have made blankets for my whole family. I started making soap using melt and pour as I was apprehensive about using lye in the cold process method. After I learned that a local soap maker was holding classes, I didn't hesitate to sign up. I finally ditched my fear of lye and I've been making soap ever since. I was making so much soap I had to start giving it away to family and friends, and after getting rave reviews, I decided it's only right to share them with all of you.
I make a variety of different soaps using skin loving oils and butters and a few unique ingredients to add that special touch. All my soaps are made in small batches, and no two bars are alike due to the handmade nature of them. I do not use any unnecessary chemicals, and only use phthalate free fragrance oils and essential oils, skin safe colorants, and natural colorants. I hope you give them a try, I'm sure you will love them as much as I do!
How it’s Made
This soap is made using the cold process method. The oils and butters are melted and then mixed with the lye solution, and then the magic happens, saponification occurs! This is the chemical reaction between the lye and oils which creates soap. The batter is poured into molds and set on the shelf to harden and finish saponifying. After 24 - 48 hours, the soap is unmolded and cut, and then set on a shelf to cure for 4 - 6 weeks which allows the water to evaporate from the bar, creating a hard, long-lasting bar of soap.
