Parties for Kids

Soap Party


We have a party space that can accommodate up to 30 people. The parties are 1 1/2 to two hours. The first hour is soap making, then the soaps need to cool before they come out of the molds, so we clean up the soap supplies and you and your guests have the snacks and cake (that you supply) and then we bring the soaps back before your guests leave.  You and your guests will have a great time, and they will each leave with 3 or 4 of their very own, personalized, homemade pure vegetable glycerin soaps. No need for goody bags because their own handmade creations are each guest's treasures!

Even though these soaps are brightly colored and highly scented, they are safe to use. In fact, the soap base we use is much better quality than grocery store soaps. They are made with vegetable oils,  no preservatives and no harsh petrochemicals that dry the skin.  Your skin will love this soap!


Although soap parties are by far the most popular (and super fun!), we have some other great party offerings.

Do you love lip balm and luxurious baths?  Have ever wondered what it took to make your own?  You can with this fun party.  Using some of nature's purest ingredients known for their moisturizing, healing, and soothing capabilities. Ingredients like rich cocoa butter, all natural beeswax, vitamin E, and natural flavor oils and mica colorants.

 * This natural lip balm really works to soothe and moisturize dry chapped lips.. and it’s pretty, too!

Bath salts are wonderful because they have the ability to greatly enhance the physical and emotional benefits of bath time.  Bathing in salt water can stimulate circulation, hydrate the skin, increase moisture retention, promote cellular regeneration, detoxify the skin and soothe dry or irritated skin. Bathing in salt water also reduces inflammation of the muscles and joints, relaxes muscles and relieves pain and soreness. Bath salts can be expensive when paying the prices that many retailers charge. We’ll show you how to make affordable, skin nourishing, fragrant bath salts at a fraction of the price.
