Bubble and Flame Soap and Candle Company intends to infuse your daily rituals with fantasy, whimsy, and the esoteric. Sarah Frost, the one woman show behind Bubble and Flame Soap and Candle Company relates that her first soapmaking experience was in high school. “Some people paint, some people sing, some people write…I make soap.”
Aside from focusing on cold process, palm oil free, primarily vegan soap (do try the Honeyed Porridge with locally sourced raw honey and organic milk if you are not looking for a vegan bar), Bubble and Flame has a unique twist on the process. As Sarah explains, “Some of us soapers like the soap making process because it makes us feel like mad scientists, nurturers, and self-sustainers, but for me soap is a way to communicate with the world. I dream, I journal, I research, I feel, and I put these processes together into soap. I prefer to dwell in the curious realms of folklore and imagination and that is where I draw my inspiration and my most beloved products from.”
You can certainly imagine the spell being cast by a soap like Conjure, a deeply-colored soap packed with activated charcoal and a delicious blend of clary sage, cinnamon, frankincense and other essential oils. And if you can get your hands on it, Strange Brew has piqued local interest with its exotic combination of coffee and a deeply aromatic, extravagant blend of essential oils including French cypress, benzoin, and cinnamon.
Entering her third year of business and second year of Guild membership, Bubble and Flame offers soap, soy wax melts, and lip balms (seasonally). Primarily online and at shows local to the Gilmanton, New Hampshire area, you’ll also find Bubble and Flame products in New Hampshire at New to You and Susana’s Sewing Studio in Concord, Sorella Flower Shop in Contoocook, and The Studio in Laconia.
