A Little About Us

Scum Soaps Creator and Chef
I grew up in a very artistic and creative environment. Anything we needed– we made. Everything from our house to the furniture inside it, our cookies, pastas, jams, quilts, and clothes. It was only a matter of time before we began to make our own soap; And now that we’ve started, there’s no stopping us....

A Classy Autumn

A Classy Autumn – an Introduction

Sweaters, changing leaves, crisp air, pumpkins, apples, cinnamon, nutmeg… We hope you are just as excited as us for Autumn! As we reflect on our favorite parts of the season, we also like to take some time to remember how hard this season was for our early American ancestors. At this time, the harvests are coming to an end, and ensuring there was enough food to last the winter made all the difference in surviving. We are infinitely blessed by having access to all the food, water, and warmth we could want during the colder months.


Halloween is a holiday full of inspiration and creativity. It is a holiday like none other, and we are celebrating the unique creativity of Halloween with a special product. We have officially introduced our Halloween Guest Soap Set in our Etsy Shop. These Halloween Guest Soaps were such a hit last year, that we decided to bring them back- and with even more scents to choose from!

Scent options include: Witches Brew (Amber, musk, teakwood), Ghost (Peppermint), Absinthe Soaps (Evergreen, mint, wintergreen), Poison Apple Soaps (Apple), Black Magic Soaps (Cinnamon, Sage, Cedarwood), Bubbling Swamp (vetyver, moss), Grave Yard soaps (vetyver, moss), Dead Man’s Treasure (Patchouli), Cauldron (apple wood, smoke).

New Product: Guest Soaps

Honey Almond Guest Soap

Lavanula Guest SoapHoney Almond Guest SoapForest Floor Guest Soap

Our New guest soaps are now available throgh our Etsy and Opensky Stores! You can find links to these sites through our Shop page.

We designed our guest soaps to be small and elegantly packaged, perfect for counter top decor or small gift items. They even work exceptionally well gifted with other Scum Soaps products, or as a set of 3, 5, 10… You get the idea. We made sure these soaps had a strong fragrance- strong enough to fill the room they are displayed in, or to pack a punch when used. We know you buy soap for the scent- and who doesn’t hate a soap that loses its fragrance?!? We can assure you that these soaps will not!

As a small, handcraft-based business we like to roll our new products continuously! Make sure to check back often and see what we have whipped up for you.

If you would like to hear about new items and exciting features, make sure to subscribe to our Newsletter! The subscription box is found on our Home page. Don’t worry- we honestly don’t have the time to send you 2 emails a week. We do our best to not end up in your spam box!

Forest Floor Scrub



When maker Briana Petruzzi first attempted making a sugar scrub, she was loosely following a common recipe she found online. “I quickly realized didn’t have all the ingredients needed, so I started to improvise. The final product ended up being nothing like the initial formula, but it was absolutely amazing! Over the years, I’ve done some minor tweaking in the formulation, but that mistake is still the foundation for our sugar and oil skin treatment.”

Forest Floor is a fresh, clean scent inspired by the Appalachian Mountains. The scrub is handcrafted from natural granulated and large crystal sugar cane to provide two levels of exfoliation.

Wedding Favors

Wedding Favors


This listing is for a set of 50 small soaps for favors, labels customized to say whatever you would like. Just keep in mind that more text = smaller font. Our company logo and the soap scent are labeled on the back side. We can also do a photograph, logo, design, etc. Whatever you may have in mind!

These favors are perfect for your rustic, barn, or historically themed wedding!

Each soap weighs approximately 1.63oz / 46g. Since they are 100% handmade, hand cut, and also packaged by hand, weights and sized will vary slightly. I do my best to ensure each piece is consistent with each other.

If you would like a quantity other than 50- please message me for details and a custom listing!

The scent and color of the soaps are to be discussed, and are ultimately your decision, based on the theme and time of year of the event. Please message me with any ideas you have, as well as relevant information.
Any materials needed that are outside of my collection (which is pretty extensive) would cost an extra fee, based on the materials needed- this basically means a fragrance or essential oil bought specifically for your event.

Please allow a 5-6 week turn around time for custom-made soap favors, as that is the amount of time needed for the soaps to cure. Only cured soaps are safe for use.

If you are using soaps already in my collection (pre-made), the wait is 1-3 weeks from time of order till they are in your posession.

Our soaps are made from Olive Oil, Soybean Oil, Cottonseed Oil, Castor Oil, and Coconut Oil. Please message me if any of these ingredients become an issue.
