The Blue Ridge Soap Shed

The Blue Ridge Soap Shed

Now making 130 varieties, The Blue Ridge Soap Shed offers one of the largest selections of handmade soap made in the world. They make it all, ranging from good-for-your-skin goat milk soap, shea butter and 100% Olive Oil Castile soaps, to Grandma's Ole Lye Soap, an Appalachian tradition.


They make their handmade soap completely from scratch, combining raw ingredients like tropical oils, goat milk, herbs and exotic vegetable butters in their own original recipes. Each batch is handmade and handpoured, with each resulting block cut into logs, then bars and packaged by hand. The small differences from batch to batch and bar to bar to confirm the handmade charm of their craft.

They specialize in creating unusual soaps for hard-to-treat skin conditions like diabetic feet, eczema & psoriasis, even soap to help combat the skin consequences of chemotherapy and blood thinning medications. Their unscented products are perfect for persons with fragrance allergies or those who simply like it plain and simple. Whether you're looking for soap to discourage Summer bugs; soothe sunburn or poison ivy; remove garlic, onion or fish odors from a cook's hands or gently cleanse a newborn baby's tender skin - you'll find it here at The Soap Shed.

They created some of their soaps as aromatic reminders of the beautiful mountains of the Blue Ridge and Southern USA, and they make wonderful souvenirs. Take home some Blue Ridge Wildflowers, Fresh Mountain Air or Carolina Kudzu for yourself or to share with your family and friends.

Handmade soap making demonstrations are provided daily during warm weather months (May through October) by their very own retired science professor and Master Soapmaker, 'Dr. T.' They are proud to have such built-in quality assurance and creativity resident at The Soap Shed. Visitors are welcome to view whatever aspect of the handmade soapmaking operation is being conducted at the time of their visit, including soapmaking, cutting or packaging.

They hope you will be able to visit with them during a stay in their beautiful Blue Ridge mountains.
