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 www.pattiflynn.etsy.com. 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.
