Welcome to Azure Mountain

It began with a passion for natural things…


In college, Art and Brenda studied environmental science. One of Art’s chemistry professors believed in teaching practical things that his students could take beyond the classroom. Art was so excited about learning to make soap he wanted to continue the practice at home. Brenda added herbs like lavender, rosemary, and essential oils to give it that special something. They shared their soap with friends and family.  It was a hit!  A coworker once told them Azure Mountain soap is the only soap that helped relieve her husband’s eczema.  They quit buying commercially made soap and embarked on a new journey.

Art and Brenda’s desire for a quieter pace and love of nature relocated them to the foothills of the Blue Mountains where mint grows in the alleys, lemon balm intertwines in their raspberry vines, roses and yarrow line the fences, lavender adorns the street corners, and Azure Mountain began.

Art and Brenda have been making cold process soap for several years near the foothills of the Blue Mountains of Southeastern Washington. Each small batch is carefully prepared, often using herbs from their garden or other local sources. Only the best quality essential oils and fine fragrance oils are included in their handcrafted artisan soap.
