Handcrafted Soaps & Sundries Since 2003

My name is Elin Criswell, a.k.a., The Country Soaper. I am a fourth-generation Texas soapmaker of Swedish descent. I sell my soap & sundries though my website, wholesale accounts, and at local artisan markets.

If you wish to purchase soap or any of my books on the craft, check out the product page. If you live in the greater Austin, Texas area and would like to take a basic soap making class, use the form on the Contact Us page to request more information.   

While you are here, I would like to tell you about Lone Star Soap & Toiletries.  Lone Star is a Texas-based soap and toiletry maker's group. We communicate through our Facebook group and hold our annual Soapmakers Seminar every June in Round Rock, Texas. If you are a soapmaker living in Texas or beyond, check us out!  We are a friendly group and would love to have you join us. For more information on Lone Star, click on the logo below.  

Soapmaking is my passion, my favorite hobby, my business and more.

Enjoy visiting my site and thanks for stopping by.
