Jumping on our soap box …


We’re excited to present our very first Abbey Brown Soap Artisan blog!

When we aren’t busy whipping up new recipes and old favorites, selling our products at one of our three locations, or running the day to day operations of our small, woman-owned business, we LOVE to research, read, and learn about what is new in the world of bath and body. We care about our skin and yours, and hope that this blog will both teach and inspire our readers to feel the same! We encourage YOU to comment, ask questions, even email us pictures of your creations and we’ll post them up!

Check back for weekly posts about current topics in soap, bath, body, skincare, health, herbalism, aromatherapy, and MORE! We’ll share tips, tools, recipes, tutorials, and all of our tried and true favorites, from herbs to essential oils. What are you interested in? Suggest a topic!

    • Hi Susie,

      Thanks for visiting our blog! There are a number of reasons why your soap may be losing it’s scent.

      First it could be how they are stored or packaged. We keep our soaps stored on drying racks away from heat or sunlight until they are ready to be packaged. We find that when we wrap our soaps in tissue and in bags it helps to keep the scent strong! Even when we go to farmer’s markets we find our samples soaps lose their scent very quickly because of the air and light!

      Also, the oils or blends you use can be the cause of the fleeting scent. We usually use around 3% of essential oils in our recipes. We also try to use a balanced blend of three or more essential oils. A low, middle, and top note. Top notes, like an orange, tend to lose their scents a lot quicker. So try balancing it with another oil like Lavender or increase the percentage. If you’re not opposed to using fragrance oils they will always be stronger and last longer then essential oils.

      Let me know if this helps!
