WELCOME TO
THE SOAPMAKER`S SHOP OF MAINE
HuMaine Essential Herbal Soap

100%biodegradable/crueltyfree

You can find my soaps on display at our local natural market in Boothbay, Maine


From my home in Boothbay, Maine,
I am very pleased to offer you my homemade herbal soaps.
By carefully preparing, then stirring all the natural ingredients by hand,
I am creating a fine quality, all-natural skin care product.
I`ve been creating natural soap since 1995. It was my love for animals
that I decided to create my own humane cruelty-free natural soap.
I found that our commercial bars are made from a large amount of animal fats
and synthetic chemicals that can rob the skin of it`s natural oil. Using my natural soaps,
you will notice a difference in how your skin looks and feels. All my soaps are made
with 100% pure vegetable oils, the vegetable oils produce a mild gentle soap which tends
to make the skin feel soft and smooth while helping to retain it`s natural moisture.
These natural soothing oils are a precious gift from nature promoting
good health and well being.

Handmade Rustic
Wooden Crate With Handmade Soaps
for gift giving.
Initially, My plan was to purchase small wooden crates
online for my handmade soaps but after talking it over
with my husband, we decided that he would build the crates
using his new table saw (that he purchased through Lowes)
and I would hand stain & stencil to give the wooden crates
a really unique, rustic look. Here`s how they turned out!
Rustic pine wooden crate measures: 4 1/2 x 7 1/2
Holds two handmade soaps and a wooden nail brush.

moose soap, pine tar soap, peppermint soap.

Handmade From Scratch Cold Process Pure Soaps
100%biodegradable/crueltyfree
Cruelty free means no animal fats are used in my soaps.
The most common oil used in commercial and in some
handmade soaps is beef tallow or better known as animal fat
You may find this listed as sodium tallowate or lard.
Tallow is relatively cheaper than using vegetable oils
and does have a distinctive odor.
Tallowate has no skin care benefits and may even clog
your pores and cause acne and other skin problems.
I use only high quality essential oils and/or fragrance
oils to scent my soaps and pure vegetable oils
that are rich in vitamins, minerals and proteins, all
of which are especially beneficial for those with
sensitive skin. Each small batch is handmade from
scratch made by the cold process method.
The cold process method makes soap that is high in
valuable nutrients retaining the nature glycerin
produced in the soap making process.

Cocoa Butter Goat Milk Facial Soap Bar
For the last few years now, I have been experimenting
with different ingredients and methods to make unique soaps.
The process of creating unique soaps can be really fun
and rewarding and allows me to use my imagination.
Recently, I have been creating whipped butter soaps.
During the soap making process of making whipped butter soap
I keep the oils very cool ensuring the oil properties and nutrients
are kept intact to nurture your skin.
Learning more about the natural butters and what
properties they contribute to my soap formula is
the key to a successful batch of soap.
A perfect face soap cleanses without drying, and has
just the right amount of nourishing oils.
The gentle soap is made with a large amount of pure cocoa butter,
and small amount of coconut, sweet almond, and soybean oil,
and moisturizing goat milk. Goat milk adds to the
gentleness lowering the ph in soap and is full of vitamins.
What's also nice about whipped soap "they float".





Cocoa Butter Goat Milk Facial Soap Bar
Made with a large amount of pure cocoa butter,
and goat milk, a small amount of coconut, sweet almond,
and soybean oil.
Cocoa butter allows the skin to retain its own
natural moisture without the skin feeling greasy
or oily. Along with providing excellent moisture
its known to reduce the appearance of wrinkles
and lines and restore the elasticity of the skin.
This is a lovely, gentle soap with no coloring.
Any scent is a product of the refined cocoa butter.
With gentle yet effective ingredients,
I have created a wonderful facial soap.
Also makes the perfect shaving soap.
Easy to hold (3 1/2" long x 1 3/4" wide) bars
that weigh between 2.8 to 3.2 ounces each.
Price....$3.75 each

Herbal Tea Tree Goat Milk Oatmeal Soap Balls






Rose Verbena Herbal Soap Balls
After the soap sets up (after 18 hours in the mold) I roll
the warm soap into soap balls, so each soap ball
is unique. They are created using the
finest ingredients including a large amount
of pure olive, coconut, palm, sunflower, and soybean oil,
a touch of organic oatmeal, dried ground verbena,
red Brazilian clay, geranium essential oil, and a small
amount of rose fragrance oil. Geranium is used in
skincare, for its delightful aroma, for its
astringent and antiseptic properties.
Once respected as a very holy herb, verbena is thought
to clean and tone the skin and it seems to enhance
the beautiful, fresh rose scent. I added just a
pinch of natural Brazilian red clay which adds
a very soft rosy hue.
Use these soap balls for a luxurious bath, to make
closets and drawers smell nice or add them to a
gift basket, decorative canister or jar.

Made on 12/13/15 a small batch of calendula chamomile oatmeal castile soap -
this recipe includes lots of calendula infused olive oil, and a touch of chamomile
essential oil, dried calendula, and organic oatmeal for their natural healing
and soothing properties. This olive oil soap recipe is a wonderful choice for someone with sensitive skin.
Traditionally castile soap contains only olive oil for its base but since I like more lather,
I have included a small amount of coconut, sunflower, palm, and soybean oil.






Sorry, on 1/1/16 the calendula chamomile oatmeal castile soap
Sold Out through my etsy shop.



On 1/2/16 I made a small batch of goat milk shea butter oatmeal soap -
this recipe includes lots of goat milk, and moisturizing shea butter,
and ground organic oatmeal.
Goat milk contains valuable vitamins, particularly vitamin A and lowers the ph in soap.

On 1/6/16 made a Herbal Tea Tree Goat Milk Soap -

vitamin rich goat milk, and healing tea tree essential oil.

Comfrey protects the skin from bacteria and environmental toxins,
while drawing out impurities and encouraging healing.
Calendula heals, soothes, and softens skin.
Goat milk contains many vitamins, but is particularly high in Vitamin A,
which is necessary to repair damaged skin tissue, and maintain healthy skin.

to help with skin ailments from acne to athlete`s foot.



made 1/13/16 Pure Lavender Shea Butter Oatmeal Soap -

right after pouring into the wooden loaf mold.

Lavender essential oil is an all natural oil extracted from the
flowers of the beautiful plant. The soothing, antiseptic
and anti-inflammatory properties of lavender
make it valuable for all skin types.
