Natural Artisan Soap from Shakespeare's Birthplace

Shakespeare's Sister's Soap



We are a small artisan natural soap making company, based in Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare.

We are unique in making our own hydrosols (flower waters) and many of our essential oils using an ancient method of distillation in our handmade copper Alembic Still giving our soaps layer upon layer of glorious natural scent.

All our natural handmade soaps are made using the finest quality, home-grown or locally sourced, sustainable and where possible, organic ingredients and are hand-made entirely by us.

If Shakespeare visited us today, he would recognise our time honoured production methods we use as our soaps are made using the traditional cold-process batch method, producing twenty-five bars at a time and taking five weeks to cure to perfection.

We hope you enjoy our website, so why not browse the products we make and if you have any questions, please get in touch by emailing judith@shakespearessisterssoap.com

I used the healing body butter with the healing soap when I was going through treatment for breast cancer; it kept my skin soft and stopped any infection. I would recommend for other women who are going through this medical procedure. Thank you. M.S Stratford
