Hazelwood Soap Company is a family owned business that specializes in artisanal bath, body and home products using the finest of natural ingredients and essential oils. All of our products are hand-made in small batches in order to preserve their potency, consistency and integrity. Drawing upon the benefits of aromatherapy, we strive to offer a superior skin care experience with a little bit of sass (You must with 4 children).
As our kids and company continue to grow, we aim to take our healthy and happy approach to a greater level by giving back to our community, educating our customers and sustaining the environment for a better future for us all.
We started making soap in 2001 as a result of good ole fashion curiosity! A couple of recipes were acquired, tweaked and poof there was soap. Along the way, family and friends enjoyed a bar here, a bar there. Before long, folks actually were placing orders. We started with a really nice shea butter bar of soap, moved onto our well known natural shea butter lotions and kept going with body washes, hand soaps, soy wax candles, etc. As our product line expanded so did our customer base. As a result, in January 2007 we opened our retail store in Waynesville, NC (Hazelwood Village).
Many have asked why and how we got started. It started with a book from the library and the desire to start a family owned business with an emphasis on customer service (something we feel has been lost throughout the years). Above everything else, our focus is to make a difference in our four childrens' lives. We are not afraid to work hard while caring for our children at the same time. We are proud to show our children that hard work, a good product line with quality ingredients, a desire to exceed and kindness can go a long way.
We have a wonderful community who shares in our success. We do not spend our budget on costly advertising, but rather focus on quality oils, organic shea butter and elegant packaging. We are only a phone call or e-mail away. We pride ourselves in going above and beyond to make your gift, soap, lotion or overall experience worth your time and dollar. We appreciate each and every customer and look forward to making a difference where we can.
We love having visitors stop by our shop in downtown Hazelwood. We should warn you that there are usually little feet pitter pattering about and lots of giggling to be heard from the back. The children are part of the business and are often the first to meet and greet. Please feel free to call or e-mail should you need directions while you are in town. Thanks for all of your support!
