Blue Ridge Soap Shed
Spruce Pine, North Carolina 28777
The Blue Ridge Soap Shed offers 150 varieties ranging from good-for-your-skin goat milk soap, shea butter and 100% Olive Oil Castile soaps, to Grandma’s Ole Lye Soap, an Appalachian tradition. Each batch of soap is handmade and hand poured, with each resulting block cut into logs, then bars and packaged by hand. The small differences from batch to batch and bar to bar celebrate the handmade charm of our craft. Visitors are welcome to view whatever aspect of the handmade soap making operation is being conducted at the time of their visit, including soapmaking, cutting or packaging.
