Citrus Bliss Soap by Spiral Soaps Lets hear from Emma at Spiral Soaps!

Spiral Soaps is natural handmade soap, bath & body products and scented candles, all made by me, Emma. I have a passion for handmade things, and making bath and body products is a natural evolution for me and my craft obsession! My natural soaps are handmade, hand cut and wrapped by hand. I don't love straight lines!

Citrus Scrub by Spiral Soaps I make my natural handmade soap using the traditional cold process method, using only quality vegetable oils and butters. Using this method means that, unlike mass produced soap, all the natural glycerine produced during the soap making process is retained. Glycerine is a natural humectant (draws moisture to the skin) and is therefore beneficial and helps keep your skin soft & supple. I don't use any animal fats or beeswax in my soaps, so they are suitable for use by vegetarians and vegans (with the exception of 'provence' & 'rose garden', which contain goats milk). All my soaps are coloured with plant infusions or coloured natural clays.

Dewdrops by Spiral Soaps I have expanded my range of products considerably to include handmade sugar scrubs, body butter, lip balm, salves, candles, solid shampoo & conditioner bars and carefully chosen accessories that I think you'll love. I have carried the ethos of my soapmaking through to my other bath & body porducts, all natural colours and the minimum or zero preservatives (I only use a preservative in my sugar scrubs, as although they are anhydrous - do not contain water - water may be introduced into the scrub as you use it, and water+no preservative=harmful bacteria :( ) All my products are paraben and sls free.

I hope you enjoy browsing my website, I am constantly coming up with new ideas for products or evolving my existing range. It is an addiction for sure! I have lots of gift ideas, from small gifts for eg. teachers to larger gifts that everyone will love.

Come and say Hello!

I love all your products, it's very hard to pick a favourite. However, i have a real soft spot for lipbalm and pick half past eight rich lip balm as my favourite.

All of the handmade soaps look really nice. I think the gingergrass sounds good to use in the shower in the morning to wake me up.

There are so many gorgeous things to choose from but, one of my favourites has to be the Tangerine Handmade Soap. I think it would really wake you up in the morning, using that. Plus, orangey and other citrus smells always uplift me. It would make me smile whilst using it.

My favourite would be tangerine natural handmade soap. Jump in the shower and refresh yourself with a lovely summery smell.

The TANGERINE HANDMADE SOAP looks devine, almost good enough to eat :) The fresh clean aroma of citrusy tangerine would liven up the darkest morning, as you breath in the yumminess as you wash you'd be whisked away to sunnier climes! :)

I think the kitchen garden soap is my favourite at the moment, mainly because I am spending a lot of time in the allotment and consequently washing my hands!

I like the herbal fushion soap as I'm trying to grow herbs this summer so anyhting herby is fascinating to me. Followed the link to the facebook page and had the honour of being the 100 liker!

I don't know about washing in it - but it looks good enough to eat!! How can soap look so tasty...will have to keep it away from the kids. Provence sounds like a touch of luxury for my new bathroom even though citrus fragrances would be my normal choice.
