handmade soap

It is so delightful and intriguing to create something beautiful where it once didn’t exist.

The Art of Soap Making is boundless, it is continuously evolving and becoming a definite class of its own.

If you like colour and design, you will love my cold press soaps.

I will not put a soap on the shelf for sale unless I am a 100% satisfied with all aspects of it, including quality selected oils, butters, additives, cosmetic grade colourant, essential oils, fragrances, and design.

Every soap takes much time and planning, with either a Muskokan or Imaginary theme, that I strive to bring alive. I am always looking for better ways to improve a particular batch, so the design may not be exactly what you had before, but that’s the fun in what I do.

I have been making Cold Press soap for fourteen years, and have experimented with Hot Press and Melt & Pour soap, but find that the Cold Press process ultimately produces the best bar of soap.

The cold press process maintains its active beneficial ingredients in the oils, because it’s not heated to high temperatures for melting and curing, and is much more versatile for creating smooth and consistent colour.

My wish is to offer my clients a luxurious bar of soap with a theme that captures their character and style.

My friend gifted me a couple of Muskoka Artisans Soaps for my Birthday and I was pleasantly surprised! My skin is quite sensitive and the soaps left my skin really soft and clear and smelling fresh! I now prefer Muskoka Artisans Soaps over the usual store bought soaps and will definitely keep using them and purchase some more! They do make great gifts

Muskoka Artisan Soaps are a lovely addition to my home. I enjoy the unique fragrance that they add to my bathrooms. Graffiti and Honeysuckle are my favorites so far. The Honey Body scrub soap is also pleasent to use.


Muskoka soap is the best soap I have ever experienced. Whether I'm using one of the fresh flower or the all-time favourite pumpkin spice smell, it never fails to amaze me how long the smell lingers around after each use. The fragrances are simply amazing. The essential oils used in them make my skin feel beautiful and silky smooth.The stunning colours are beautifully blended together for an overall lovely piece of art.I love the careful thought put into each unique design; they have proven to be great gift ideas to family, friends, and co-workers.


I’ve used a few different varieties of her soap and I’ve loved them all. You can tell she uses good quality ingredients. Between the scents, the different layers and all the artistic designs, you’re buying an amazing experience every time you step in the bathtub! Shannon is truly an artist!

I'm so impressed with your variety of soap products. They are silky soft and bubbly. Everything from the aromatic array of scents to the designs and colours bring about a calming experience. My husband loves the Green Man soap.
