Shampoo & Shaving natural soap Pleasant View Soaps


 Why Handmade?

   These handmade cold-process soaps are created with care in small batches with simple, natural ingredients that provide conditioning and pampering for your skin. The variety of traditional oils and butters used contribute to an emollient, well-lathering, and long-lasting product. Each hand-crafted bar of soap is unique.                                                              
   In contrast to commercially-made bar soaps, handmade cold-process soap has no harsh synthetic detergents that will strip your skin of its intrinsic hydration. Instead, the soap is rich with natural glycerin that attracts and holds moisture to your skin rather than drying it out.                      
   The soaps are scented with pure essential oil blends for a gentle, fresh, and wholesome bar, or high-quality skin-grade fragrances to give you a wide variety of luscious scents that are a treat to use. Most of our soaps are enhanced with vitamin-rich, creamy goat's milk.                      
   Many who try natural soap are delighted to find the soap to be healing to a variety of skin problems. Feel confident in choosing handmade!

Oatmeal Milk Honey Goat's Milk soap

I have wanted to get away from the commercial shampoos but my hair is always such a wreck from being outside in the sun and weather... making it difficult for me to find shampoo that will work for me.  After using your shampoo bar for a week, I am just thrilled!  My hair is soft and manageable.

My skin is somewhat sensitive, and after using harsh chemicals to clean my bathroom, my hands always feel dry, irritated and smelly! Using the coastal lily soap is the best way to remove the chemical odor and clean and moisturize my skin.


The beard oil was a hit with both my husband and myself. It made his beard nice and soft, as well as shiny. I think the scent was wonderful when nuzzling :-). I would buy this product again.

   In the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, in the shadow of the Blue Ridge Mountains, there's a plot of land on a grassy hill tucked away at the end of a country road. Here you might find Hannah taking a walk, tending the vegetable gardens, plucking herbs for infusing into soap, creating photographs of the surrounding beauty, or back inside the homestead kitchen whipping up a batch of something new.


   Hannah first began making soaps and body products in 2010, having had an interest in natural health for several years and being encouraged in this new avenue by family and friends who appreciated the beneficial results. She taught classes on soap-making to share the knowledge she had gained - and before long began offering the soaps to the public. Many of her loyal customers met her during the 4 years she was a vendor at the Staunton-Augusta Farmers' Market or at craft shows in the Valley area.


   The products you find here invite you to join her as she seeks to reflect the beauty and order of God's creation and provide quality skin care for you and your loved ones.
