Collection: Moher Soap Co
Moher Soap Co
Both Raquel from The Moher Soap Company and her husband have ‘working hands’. For years they both had trouble with dry and broken skin as a result of repeated hand washing with commercially produced soap. They slowly came around to the idea of making soap themselves, using only natural ingredients, at home in the kitchen. With the discovery that she could make use of the properties derived from the flowers and herbs that grow in her garden, Raquel quickly became fascinated with the world of soapmaking.
Falling back on her scientific training and time spent working in laboratories, Raquel gradually built up an understanding of how various natural ingredients interact to influence the properties of soap. Over time she came up with a few products that she thought really worked and decided to see if other people loved using them as much as she did.
With a strong personal interest in packaging Raquel started researching how best to present her soap from The Moher Soap Co to the world and fell in love with the idea of wrapping the soap in fabric, a material that people could reuse to make other things with, themselves. This zero-waste ethos carried forward into homemade wooden moulds and cutters, the aluminium tins, glass jars and organza gift bags that you will find with the rest of her range today and the handmade, upcycled stands used to display them.
Living within a few minutes of the Cliffs of Moher in County Clare and referencing her husband’s love of surfing below these otherworldly cliffs at Aileen’s, Raquel chose to call her project ‘The Moher Soap Co.’
