Who Is "Pretty Witch Soaps"


Hi there! Pretty Witch Soaps is run by me- Zuzu. I'm a 27 year old Kitchen Witch currently living in Dallas, Texas with my fiancé. In 2016 I graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor's in English Literature. I adore books and writing, but I decided to totally NOT use my degree and spent 3 years teaching English in Japan instead! I loved my time in Japan, and I met many artists, bloggers, writers, and small business owners who were chasing their dreams all over the world. The friendships that blossomed in my time abroad inspired me to come home and chase my more artistic passions, and that's how Pretty Witch Soaps was born.



Why Soap?

I've always been inspired by people who create functional items. People who craft clothing, soap, bath bombs, resin, make furniture or jewelry... there's something especially beautiful about art you can hold in your hands, look at, enjoy, and then use. We decorate our homes and our bodies with so many things that bring us joy, so why not make some of your essential items reflect that beauty as well? The most beautiful thing about soap is that it is meant to be used up, so not a single drop of the care and love that went into making it is wasted.

Soap is something everyone needs. You buy it all the time. Almost everyone does, and its often on display too- in your kitchen, your bathroom, or your shower. For that reason, I think soap is one of the most interesting functional items you can craft in your own home. We decorate our homes and our bodies with so many things that bring us joy, so why not make some of your essential items reflect part of yourself?

I got started watching YouTube videos, and buying artisan soaps from from high end grocery stores. But I wanted my soaps to reflect things that I love. Whether its your favorite book character, your favorite fairytale, your favorite dress, or even your favorite food- you can represent that thing with soap. You can hold it, smell it, admire it, and use it. And best of all, its ECO FRIENDLY! When you buy a bar of handmade cold process soap, you know exactly who made it, what went into it, and you know with CERTAINTY that you're not harming the environment with it. Cold process soap is good for you, makes you happy, and doesn't have to hurt anyone. :)
