The Soap Opera

The Soap Opera is a downtown landmark on State Street in Madison, WI, just a couple of blocks from the capitol.  What a place!  Soap, soap, and more soap.   I've visited there several times over the years (if you even had to ask).



When the Soap Opera's owner approached me a couple months ago, asking to include my soaps in the shop's made in Wisconsin line, I was on board!

Actually, my first exposure to The Soap Opera came from one of my herbal books, published in 1976. Jeanne Rose's Herbal Body Book listed the shop.  It was one of four locations listed in Wisconsin and the closest to me.  Forty plus years later, the shop is still around and thriving!



Have you ever seen so much soap in your life?!




So when you think of Wisconsin, what do you think of?  If you think of beer, cheese and cows, there's a soap for that.  And all three are available at The Soap Opera.

Dairyland, with a Holstein cow design and a fresh sweet grass fragrance...



The eye-catching Cheese soap, also with a sweet grass fragrance...


And then the oh, so very popular beer soap, on the left side of the Cheese soap.  This bar has an Oatmeal Stout scent, which, most unfortunately, is not edible.



Besides these, The Soap Opera also carries several other soaps of mine, including Lilac Blossom, Lime Cilantro, and all the rest that you'll just have to smell for yourself!
