Handcrafted Soaps from Iowa


My best friend from Chantilly High School, Victoria Spain (formerly known as Vikki Wickham), is now crafting some of the greatest soap I have tried so far.  After sending me a bar of her Goat’s Milk Soap to use on my extremely dry and allergy prone skin, she has gained me as a loyal customer for life.  I was so excited to try some of her new fall scents, such as Pumpkin Chai and Caramel Popcorn.  I even bought extras to give as gifts to a few people I know will love them as much as I do.  I’m completely addicted to her Peppermint Patty Goat’s Milk Soap Cupcake, which has such a heavenly scent, and looks so adorable.  I’m looking forward to seeing what she comes up with next.

“Victoria makes homemade, handcrafted cold processed (CP) soap for sale online and at local farmer’s markets, vendor fairs, and charity auctions.  She strives to use natural locally-sourced ingredients whenever possible.  Primary ingredients consist of goat’s milk, coconut oil, grapeseed oil, castor oil, lard, kaolin clay, shea butter, tussah silk, essential oils, fragrance oils, and mica colorants.  CP or cold processed soap is much better for your skin than commercially processed “detergent” or “beauty bars.”  Take a look at the soap in the store – it’s not listed as “soap” and the ingredient list if full of non-skin-loving additives.  CP soap is natural and specifically designed to be of the highest benefit to your skin.”

As a special bonus, Victoria, even sent me this lovely handcrafted Halloween Felted Soap.  Somehow I think she knows just how crazy insane we are about Halloween in this house.  It makes me want to start decorating right this second, just so I can put it out to enjoy.  Thank you so much Victoria, it was so thoughtful of you to spend the time making this for me.  Even B.O.B. Bob was amazed to see what you could do, although I did have to explain to him what exactly it was…MEN!

Check out Victoria’s online site, blog, and shop Maitri Bath & Body LLC.  She has a variety of every changing products, and will even work with you to make custom soap and felted bars.
