You Need Soap

Artesia does not make soap. The world is probably a better place for it. However, I have found a wonderful soap maker on etsy.com for your artisan soap needs: Swan Mountain Soaps. These soaps and body products are full of the stuff your skin loves: butters, oils, and healing herbs.
Christina of Swan Mountain creates cold pressed soaps and natural body products from scratch, often including the gifts from nature found near her Alaskan home. Her five kids and supportive husband often help with the harvesting, packaging, and testing. Three cheers for Test Monkeys!

Swan Mountain Soaps are absolutely gorgeous! The photos are lovely, too. It is no wonder Swan Mountain made the Front Page of etsy.com twice last week!

Alaska Rain Soap

One of the many wonderful product lines Swan Mountain offers is their Scents and Sensibility line of perfume oils. These olfactory treats are inspired by some of Jane Austin’s characters: Elizabeth, Jane, Charlotte, Georgianna, Emma, Harriet, Elinor, Marianne… and Mr. Darcy of course!

Swan Mountain Soap’s blog is a fun place to learn more about Christina’s products. You might even learn a bit about yourself if you take her Soap Personality Test. Go ahead – it’s fun!




  1. Great feature on Swan Mountain! I love her soaps and Jane Austen inspired items!
