About Us:

We are based in a beautiful area of Southern Ireland near to the coastal towns of Dungarvan and Ardmore in County Waterford.

We started making soaps and creams using beeswax from the family's bees in 2001. We use organic ingredients in as many of our products as possible and none of our products are tested on animals - we do however test them on friends and family!

Wherever possible we use locally produced ingredients and Irish companies for our supplies. Most of our beeswax comes from our own hives, herbs are home grown and seaweed harvested by hand from local beaches.

We use the Irish hare in our logo as there are many of them in the local area and they have become a kind of mascot for us.

We use only the finest natural ingredients in all our products, however in the unlikely event of any adverse effects - stop use immediately.

As with any product containing essential oils care should be taken during pregnancy. If any soap products get into the eyes, rinse with clean water. Some of the bath products can make a bath or shower slippery so care should be taken when using them.

We hope you enjoy using our products and we appreciate any feedback you can give us.

Training Days.

We offer a hands-on training day for people interested in getting started in melt and pour soap making and we offer online support to get a Safety Assessment.

If you are interested in the hands-on training day, read our One Day Introduction to "Melt and Pour" Soap Making which is an easy way for the complete novice to get soaping.

We cover basic equipment needs and methods, with practical classes in colouring and scents. We will take you from sourcing raw materials to finished soaps.

 Please mail us at  for a complete print-out of course summaries and costs.

We can also provide accommodation options close to us if you are too far away for a day visit. For location - see Google map on this page, or Lat & Long is 51.99555, -7.668092 or Loc8 code YRD-45-SJ9

What people have said about our courses:

 "The soap making course gives an excellent grounding on how to make soap. Everything from equipment, ingredients and method all the way through to packaging and presentation was covered". Mike Finnegan, Co. Kerry.

"I set up a soap making business for students with learning difficulties after attending the course and they felt a great sense of achievement making and selling their own soap, the course was concise and well run and got us off to a great start". Sally, Lewisham College, London.

"We did the soap making course as part of our honeymoon to Ireland and were pleasantly surprised. It was extremely informative and precise, we learnt the different kinds of bases, melting and pouring, design and presentation. Our trainer Clive explained things in a clear way and was able to share his knowledge. We were empowered by the practical elements of the course and would recommend it to entrepeneurs or hobbyists. Great Fun. Thanks Clive and Rachel for a wonderful experience". Amos Gustavus & Sophia Valentine, Beckenhham, Kent.

"My head is still buzzing and full of ideas I can't believe how much we covered - I would certainly recommend your? course to anyone." Sarah Mallen, Co. Wicklow.

"It was informative, hands on and fun and very good value for money. My family were very impressed and I am full of ideas and enthusiasm about getting started. Thanks again for your hospitality (and for the lovely lunch Rachel). Thank you once again and continued success in all your ventures". Karen Cottier, Co. Waterford.

"I arrived home safe and sound after my lovely time in Co Waterford. I cannot thank you and your family enough for your kindness and hospitality. I really enjoyed the soap making and can't wait to get some supplies and have a go. Your information and advice and the hands on opportunity was worth more than reading a stack of books. I'm still in awe of the soaps I made, thanks to your relaxed and no nonsense approach". Eileen Fitzgerald, Co. Kerry.

 I want to thank Clive and Rachel for organising this course, i left feeling welcomed and crazily inspired. Clive is a great teacher and of course thank you to Rachel for the great lunch! Don't hesitate, if you want to learn how to make soap this course is the best.

Olga, Shannon. 

 I had a great day last Saturday on the course with Clive.

I learned so much and Clive was great teacher. I got great hand-outs before leaving along with a bag full of soaps I made. I had lunch there and and both Clive and Rachel were wonderful hosts. I would definitely recommend it.
