Handcraft Essentials is a privately owned online shop dedicated to high quality herbal favors, gifts, and gift baskets. We specialize in Special Event Pricing for wedding favors, bridal shower favors, and baby shower favors. All items can be purchased in bulk with special event pricing. We also provide customized products and packaging options to fit your personalized style for a small additional fee.

We make handcrafted and all natural cold process soaps, lotions, body butters, face masks, aromatherapy, bath bombs, and massage oils. All products are locally and proudly made in the state of Maine. All products are made 100% from all natural ingredients. Harsh chemicals, artificial fragrances and colorants are never used, so our customers never have to worry about what they’re using on their skin.

What does “all natural” mean? If an ingredient comes from or is a plant, vegetable, mineral or animal byproduct (e.g. honey or milk) then it is natural. Our lovely, skin nourishing products are made with coconut derivatives, vegetable emulsifiers, plant derived colorants, and scented with essential oils. There are no SLSs, parabens, petrochemicals or rush hours here. Our customers should know that all of our fragrances are pure essential oils (plant extracts); our colorants are derived from herbs and other natural sources (like fruit or vegetable extracts); and our preservatives are plant extracts. Our natural soap company does not use any synthetic fragrances, colorants, or preservatives in any of our handmade soaps.

Our mission is to provide excellence and simplicity to our customers, both in product and purchasing experience. Customer satisfaction is always our primary goal. All products are tested only on friends and family, never on animals. We are committed to having an environmentally friendly, sustainable natural soap company. Our products are never outsourced and are always made and inspected by founder and owner Kathleen, certified herbalist and aromatherapist, for quality assurance.
