Artesia, New Mexico is home to one of our state’s finest soap artisans, Patricia Monk of Made to Lather.
I knew her soaps were something special when a man walked into my store last fall and asked for Mechanic’s soap. After showing him some of our soaps, he said, “No, that’s the name of it, a woman from Artesia makes it and that’s the only soap I’ll buy.”
There is a science to making great soap and Patricia has an Advanced Certified Soapmaker Accreditation from the Handcrafted Soap and Cosmetics Guild. The first thing you'll notice is how creamy her soap is, she’s generous with her ingredients, I love the Oatmeal soap, a great scrubber and it smells amazing. With over 25 soaps to choose from, including shampoo and face bars, she’s got you covered.
Patricia carries a full line of lotions, bath bombs and in addition to her Mechanic’s soap, she carries shaving soaps and beard balms for men, and a soothing balm for your dog's paws.
If you looking for that perfect gift to send to someone, order the Twisted Citrus, sweet citrus with a dash of chile thrown in.
