Soap making started out as a hobby, something I read about and instantly wanted to try! Like many who get into soap crafting I just had a desire to learn about something I find absolutely intriguing.
Once I did I was hooked. Soapmaking has given me the creative outlet I need. My love of gardening has been incorporated into the business as well and many of the soaps are made using dried herbs and botanical. These gifts from nature add a variety of qualities to handcrafted soaps. There are over 40 varieties of Ol'Factory Soaps including those that exfoliate, moisturize, heal and relax. In 2004 Ol'Factory Soaps & Scents "blossomed" into Ol'Factory Lavender & Herb Farm. The farm hosts the NY Lavender Festival each year! Go to www.nylavenderfestival.com for more information on our event.
Nothing compares to the rich, clean scent of lavender. It blends well with and compliments so many other scents which is why I have dedicated many of my bars to this truly amazing herb. But Ol'Factory is not just all about lavender, you will find a vast array of soaps to fit every mood, gender and age. I hope you enjoy browsing the site and share in the pleasures associated with using natural Ol'Factory products!
