Shiver Soap

Next market: Pennylane Market at The Toad in Osborne Village. Sunday May 7th, 1 – 6 pm. No admission. Live music. Everything handmade. 


I began making soap in my early 20s but it had been a curious crafty obsession since I was a child. I collected bar soaps from hotels, decorative soaps, large bars,  intricate mini soaps and sample sized shampoos. Soap was the best gift I could ever receive! Finally in a bachelor suite in West Broadway, I started planning Shiver Soaps. I took books out from the library. I learned how to calculate recipes manually  (now I just plug everything into an online soap calculator) and one paycheck at a time bought a couple start up supplies. At that time FoodFare sold little bottles of lye for $6 which was perfect for a beginner! They soon discontinued their lye so I had to find another supplier which currently only sells lye in minimum $100 quantities.  I have enough lye stored in my bedroom to get rid of numerous bodies!

I have changed my soap logo, branding and style a million times but always remained Shiver Soaps. Its been so fun!
