Our Soapmaking


Johnson's Heritage Farmstead (formerly Homesteaders Cache) is proud to offer natural handmade soaps and solid lotion bars from our farm in Potlatch, Idaho. We sell through craft shows, farmer's markets and retail shops to the public and wholesale to gift shops and bed and breakfasts.
We use a custom blend of 6 oils in our soaps, combine with natural colorants and botanicals and add in just the right amount of fragrance oil or essential oils. Some of our soaps include goat's milk which creates a luxurious lather. All our soaps contain natural glycerin which leaves your skin feeling soft.
We make soap the old fashioned way from scratch, by blending natural ingredients in small batches and pouring into handmade wooden block molds.  This process is known as cold-process soapmaking.
When ready, the soap is hand cut into bars, put on drying racks and aged for a month.  
About Me: I've always loved crafting. My babysitter Rosie taught me to crochet when I was 3. My mom taught me to knit. My neighbor June taught me to sew. I made my first quilt when I was 14. I've been making and using handmade soap since 2006. To me, soapmaking combines the part of me that loves to bake and be precise with the other part that wants creativity and to make something unique. 

   Treat yourself to a bar of natural handmade soap!
