"Sometimes you have to step back in time to move forward with better ideas."

Rustic or elegant, our soap line or your custom idea, retail or wholesale, we make it all and have since 1994, first inspired by my own problematic skin needs, as well as a rare ancient Victorian journal I found in a used bookstore, hand-written and chockful of simple, uncomplicated, pure ingredient recipes from long before skincare product chemicals and cheap substitutes even existed!

Our soap line mimics these vintage recipes, always crafted with the best Earth/animal/and people-friendly ingredients & practices -- the purity & magic of ancient alchemy!  THAT'S how you create & maintain repeat-buyer-clientele as well as enlighten newcomers to healthier products! Once people try handmade pure vegetable oil soaps, it's pretty difficult to go back to mainstream chemical-laden detergent bars ever again! Skin just feels SO MUCH BETTER with handcrafted, it sells itself! 


However not all handmade soap is crafted the same.  We use ONLY the finest ingredients in our recipes, just as we always have, sourced from reputable suppliers that share our commitment to fair trade, and fair wages for sustainable crop workers.  Our soaps may cost a bit more than some on the market, but their quality and firmness to the last sliver speaks volumes!  As a super-sensitive skin person myself, it's what led me to become a soapmaker in the first place!

I'm my own best guinea pig! Come try!

Interested is selling Ancient Alchemy at your shoppe, e-commerce site, at craft fairs & festivals, in catalogs, or as home parties?  Are you a soapmaker also, but unable to keep up with occasional extra demand?  Or a fellow like-minded, healthy product entrepreneur? We're happy to partner with you as a supplier, offering our products at wholesale pricing, at a minimum purchase! (We do not do drop-shipping or consignment!)


First, accountant's orders....we are required to have a copy of your state resale permit on-file (to prove you are a business entity and exempt from paying tax on your purchase), so please forward a copy to this email address: ancientalchemy(at)  THANKS!

Once your valid resale permit has been submitted to us, we will provide you with the wholesale code to use at check-out.  Your checkout will only complete if you meet the wholesale minimum purchase sub-total of $150.00 PRE-SHIPPING CHARGE with wholesale discount applied.

This equates to approx, 28 - 30 soap bars PLUS $14.75 (<-Medium Flat Rate cost, up to 30 bars)

or PLUS $19.90 cost, (<-Large Flat Rate cost, up to 40 bars)

Or 3 12-bar soap logs, or 36 soap bars - + Shipping - $19.90

Other products or combinations of products - shipping TBD. Quotes available if needed.

We can also tally your order off-cart and send you a PayPal funds request if you prefer. 


We also do custom soap orders!

Many of our long-time shoppe-owner clients have us craft their CUSTOM soap for a unique-to-them crafted product, that no one else offers! BE DIFFERENT! But be GREAT!

Interested?  Email us and let's craft YOU a custom soap that fits your shoppe's unique theme, region, special needs, or ingredient specifications! Ancient Alchemy has proven over and over since 1994, to be an excellent repeat-buyer-clientele builder! ancientalchemy(at)
