Hello and welcome to Cela and Grace!
I’ve always had a passion for creating, I believe it’s a gift from God. Growing up I was a big crafter, I loved making beautiful gifts for others.
When my daughter was much younger I started making melt and pour soaps, lotions, and candles to give as gifts to her teachers. As life and work got busy I put that creative hobby aside for a while.
Last year I picked it up again, however, this time around I decided to try my hand at making cold process soap.
I had in the past been apprehensive about using lye, but after watching tons of Brambleberry soap making videos I was ready to give the cold process method a try, I was hooked, and my creative side was alive again.
It was nice creating again, lotions, creams, body sprays, and candles to go along with the soaps I was making. The ability to make my own bath and body products using ingredients that didn’t leave my skin feeling tacky but soft and smooth was very satisfying.
I started giving them as gifts to family and friends and after much encouragement from my gift recipients, Cela & Grace was born.
I chose Cela because it is a version of my name Celeste, which wasn’t available for me to use. I added Grace because it’s God’s grace that has made a difference in my life.
I absolutely love creating luxurious bath and body products with fragrances that embark a relaxed and rejuvenated feeling.
Cela & Grace products are handcrafted in small batches using high quality oils, butters, clays, milks, essential oils, sugars, salts, phthalate-free fragrance oils, mineral oxides, micas, and natural colorants.
Take a look around, my hope is that you find something beautiful and it brings you a bit of peace, calm and relaxation.
With much Love & Lather,
