Hi, I’m Colleen!

Hello, my name is Colleen Nisbet and I am the owner of Muskoka Soap Box. Over the course of many years I have enjoyed a long and blissful love affair with soap. In fact, one of my earliest memories was pouring over my guest soap collection gathered from hotels far and wide and stored carefully in shoeboxes!  While I no longer collect hotel soap (well, not every time) I do get that same feeling of satisfaction and completion in each and every activity that is part of this small business.  The attention to detail, creativity, persistence, research and continuous quality improvement all come together when the customer loves their purchase.

I make soap with quality, natural ingredients that uses colour, design, fragrance and botanical elements to create functional art that no only looks beautiful in your soap dish but makes a silky, soft lather that you won’t be able to resist.

My hope for this website is that it becomes a place for soap makers to peruse, learn new things, be challenged by new ideas and hopefully, be inspired by the content. For soap lovers it is a website to browse, shop and perhaps even get the soap making ‘bug’ to create their own soap!
