Soaps by Patti Flynn

Known in soaping circles as one of the hardest working soap-makers in the business, Patti Flynn makes some of the most exclusive handmade soap in the world. From her soap studio in Cairns, Australia, Patti works tirelessly to produce her gorgeous natural soaps using traditional methods – all by hand.

For years Patti’s soaps have been available in luxury spas, hotels, and resorts, and now they are available through her Etsy shop at Her generous bars -- usually weighing over 150g -- are a tremendous value, especially considering the high-quality ingredients she uses in her soaps. You won’t find any animal fats, preservatives, synthetic colours or synthetic fragrances in Patti’s soaps.

I’ve tried her famous Inflorescence soap with its lashings of rose geranium, ylang, and lavender, as well as the lovely Caraboo soap which is loaded with rose clay. Both are heavenly. My favourite, though, has to be the Green Tea & Silk bar with its uplifting citrus scent and rich, silky lather. I am also a fan of Patti’s soothing Sweet Baby soap which contains calendula and lavender.

dear elizabeth,

thank you for a delightful plug!
you make me sound quite fabulous....which is particularly nice to experience, because i don't feel so fabulous right now.

we are winding down everything to go away and there is so much to be done.

thank you for the wildly complimentary interlude!

I'm a huge fan of Patti's soap - and in fact, bought some off of Etsy just about a month ago. I kept one for myself and gave the rest away and so far, my girlfriends that I shared the soap with have been raving happy about the unique blends and extraordinary performance in the shower.

I am a total convert to these lovely soaps. I've had several guests comment about the wonderful scents wafting up from the soap dish.
