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 live in Central Texas and would like to take a basic soap making class, check out the Soap Classes page. If you wish to purchase soap or any of my books on the craft, check out the Products page.    


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.
