Welcome to the Parsonage!


The Parsonage Soap Company began in 1997 after two friends with a passion for gardening and handcrafted products decided to make their own soap one Christmas. Dick, a third generation soapmaker, uses his chemistry background to perfect our recipes. Julie’s accounting degree kept the business end running smoothly. Together, they created the scent blends that make our soaps so popular. After 23 years, our co-founder Julie Pieper decided to step back the day to day operations of the business to pursue other interests. Thankfully, she is still just a phone call away – and has graciously agreed to continue to devise new scents and help transition the business to Dick and his family!

Our products are handmade from start to finish using original recipes. The soaps contain no animal fats and are scented with plant essential oils or cosmetic grade fragrances. Each hand cut bar weighs at least 3.5 ounces and is wrapped in cotton fabric with a recycled paper wrapper. Our vegetable oils are non-GMO certified, our fragrances are phthalate free, and our palm oil is RSPO sustainable. Be sure to call or check online for current offerings, as new varieties are available on a continuing basis.
