This is my journey with Solitude Soapworks.

Welcome to the studio

Solitude Soapworks studio is situated on the back part of our homestead, overlooking flower gardens, forests, and the majestic high peaks.

It blends in as only an Adirondack Camp cabin can with a green metal roof and dark brown siding. Very unassuming from the outside but indoors is where the magic happens. You’ll find plants, crystals, and a wall of fragrance and color—it’s a hippie’s paradise, and there is always music playing. (It keeps the gremlins away.)

Soaping is part artistry, part science, and part alchemy. It requires focus and concentration.

I make my soaps in small batches, which allows me to oversee every tiny detail of production and put out high-quality products that you can not only feel good about using but that also leave your skin feeling amazing.

Our soaps are formulated to be gentle for all skin types, using only the highest quality plant-based butters and oils we can source, and our leave-on body products are made with organic ingredients wherever possible.

We list all our ingredients on every label. This is done for transparency purposes because as a consumer, you have the right to make an informed decision about the products you buy. We strive to be as zero waste as possible. Our packaging is recyclable, Our soaps are wrapped in a simple paper cigar band and we've been slowly migrating all of our labels for our body products over to Leapin Lizard Labels.

Their customer service is impeccable, their pricing is extremely fair and their labels have simply elevated our brand look.

I founded Solitude Soapworks with
three core principles:


You have so many choices as a customer these days. I believe that by sharing information about my products, you can make an informed decision about what you buy. With transparency, our relationship is based on honesty and trust.


Customer service is quickly becoming extinct in our society, and that bothers me something fierce! Solitude Soapworks would not be where it is today without its amazing customers, and I will always provide you with outstanding customer service.


Charity begins at home, and Solitude Soapworks donates 10% of its sales to three charities that matter deeply to me. By buying from Solitude Soapworks, you are also making giving back a priority.


Suicide hit too close to home and has left my family heartbroken and beyond devastated, which is why I will always support suicide prevention initiatives.


I lost friends on 9/11. For 20 years, First Responders Children’s Foundation has helped support the children and families of first responders who have been killed or injured in the line of duty.


This one is deeply personal for me, since I’ve been hypoparathyroid for the last 13 years. It’s a rare endocrine disease that affects approximately 77,000 in the USA. Because of the tiny patient community, there is not a lot of funding available for research, and living with hypoparathyroidism is like walking an impossible tightrope.
