When Bittersweet was founded fifteen years ago we had one main objective in mind..
To produce a product line thats character was built and inspired by days gone by.
A time and period that reflected simpler days, when less was more, and items were made by hand and
The idea was not so much to re-create products from the past, but rather to re-visit an era when
workmanship and quality were king. A time when the greatest attention was paid to the smallest of detail to
ensure that people could enjoy their purchase to the fullest, from beginning to end.
Through hours of research I created a unique soap formulation very much like the one used by my French
The recipe contains moisture rich olive oil, clean spring water and natural nutrients like goat milk and French
clay. Each bar is cut by hand and then wrapped in beautiful creative packaging. I enjoy focusing on the tiniest
of detail. I believe the outside should appear as pretty and special as what's inside!
Even though I consider soap manufacturing my expertise, I also take great pride in making over one-hundred
other unique artisan creations. In addition, a line of natural home keeping essentials. All of these creations
are crafted with my own two hands. I'm passionate about incorporating vintage inspired details into the
design and packaging.
You won't find Bittersweet hand-made items mass produced or sitting from store shelf to store shelf. I
believe in a more personal approach when marketing my products. I believe that philosophy makes each
item more special. I'm proud of that !
Bittersweet hand-made may be found at our apothecary shop located in historic Liberty Misssouri
and on our web site.
Occasionally, Bittersweet participates in a showing of our newest items.
We announce those events on our web site and blog.
I'd be happy to answer any questions about Bittersweets natural and hand-made essentials.
Thank you for visiting.
