Donwell Orchard

Whether apple picking, baking, or eating, there is nothing like a good apple in the colder months. Enjoy the apple and sage fragrance of a Donwell Abbey apple every day with this inspired artisan soap bar.


“The apples themselves are the very finest sort for baking, beyond a doubt; all from Donwell. He had brought them all—and now his master had not one left to bake or boil.” ~ Miss Bates of Emma, by Jane Austen

Mr. Knightley is generosity itself, giving the rest of his apple crop to the Bates family. A more gentlemanly man there never was! As for the apples, they smell as good as they taste.

Mr. Woodhouse's Christmas Cocoa

This Christmas soap is scented with hot cocoa and peppermint. It is the perfect Christmas drink, and you need not be concerned about overindulgence as this is Mr. Woodhouse approved.


"He had, therefore, earnestly tried to dissuade them from having any wedding cake at all, and when that proved vain, as earnestly tried to prevent any body’s eating it. He had been at the pains of consulting Mr. Perry, the apothecary, on the subject." ~Mr. Woodhouse, of Emma, by Jane Austen.

Mr. Woodhouse would like us to believe he eats nothing but “thin gruel.” But what if he had a secret delight? A taste for hot chocolate that began as a sip at Christmas and turned into a daily indulgence? For though he could not abide the richness of cake, there is no mention of other desserts in Emma. Perhaps Ms. Austen did not want us to know that, in fact, Mr. Woodhouse had a weakness: hot cocoa with peppermint. So easily hidden in his cup, there was no need for anyone to know what he was drinking.

He is certain there is no peril to be had with such an innocent indulgence. Did he have it in the morning, whilst still abed? Or did he drink it near the fire, in his favorite chair? I suppose we will never know.

This chocolatey soap smells so yummy that you might need a cup of hot cocoa right after your bath!

Silk and Gold Paper: a Christmas soap

Luxurious clay gives a silky feel to this festively scented soap and the elegant gold paper lines and swirl atop are the perfect indulgent touch for a special time of year. Scented with fig, apple, and forest wood.


“On one side was a table occupied by some chattering girls, cutting up silk and gold paper; and on the other were tressels and trays, bending under the weight of brawn and cold pies, where riotous boys were holding high revel; the whole completed by a roaring Christmas fire.”~ Persuasion, by Jane Austen.

This cozy passage of Christmas at Uppercross is so delightful we wish ourselves a seat at their table.

A Comfortable Winter

A snowy hill, a coppery fire, a spiced drink, and a pumpkin cookie are the wintery comforts this artisan bar depicts. A warm bath is waiting for you. Scented with warming spices and pumpkin.


“Upon the whole, it was a comfortable winter to her." ~ Mansfield Park, by Jane Austen

This simple line from Mansfield Park is just how the perfect winter should be. The warmth of spices and pumpkin treats are essential comforts during the cold winter months--so much so that one cannot do without them. This handmade artisan soap bar is inspired by these words Ms. Austen penned over 200 years ago.
