Our Story


My sister Julie has been making her own soap for years, and I always made fun of her and told her she was weird.

Well, she came to live with me for a few months while waiting for her new condo, and she made some soap while she was here.  I am always up for a new craft project, so I asked her to teach me the soap-making process. I found out that it's very similar to baking, which I love, so I was hooked!

A few months later, I found myself thrust into the reality of no job after 30 years at the same place. I was terrified, but I have always wanted to own my own business, so we sat down at my kitchen table, and with the help of my granddaughters came up with the idea for Sweet Sisters Soap.

Until I started using it, I had no idea what a difference the right soap makes for your skin. I had to take back all the weird jokes about my sister at that point. She was right all along! I love helping people, and I love the fact that handmade soap is better for the environment, as well as better for us, so it's a win-win.
