Born and raised in the Mitten State, I'm a recent transplant to Holland, and I'm loving west side living. I'm a legal secretary by day and soap-maker by night (and weekends and any free moment I can find). One of my passions is making and trying new microbrews, and in my free time I enjoy visiting local breweries or traveling to new ones. That love of good beer carries over into my soap-making and making soaps with different Michigan beers or our own home brews. Aside from soap and beer, my hobbies include cooking, reading, and trying to become the next crazy cat lady.
Since its inception in 2009, WickedSoaps has specialized in small-batch artisan bath and body products, including cold process soaps, body lotions, emulsified sugar scrubs, perfume oils, lip balms, bath soaks, and facial care products such as serums, masks, soaps. My newest projects include beard oils and balms, shaving soaps, and aftershave. I love working with coconut milk, shea and cocoa butters, luxury oils such as avocado, argan, and jojoba, and incorporating beer, hops, coffee, and different botanicals into my products.
