About Us

Janelle’s Soaps & Succulents creates luxurious soaps, handmade from scratch, using the cold process method. Our soaps are made with combinations of quality skin loving oils and ingredients, ensuring your skin is left feeling fabulous after use. There is a soap to suit everyone within our large range of soaps, including all natural soaps, Aromatherapy Soaps and Gardener’s Soaps (also great for mechanics). Although our soaps make beautifully scented decor items, they are made to use and enjoy in the bath and/or shower.

Why not give your self a little bit of luxury at bath time? Your skin will love you.

Meet the Maker

My name is Janelle Frappell and I am a cold process soap maker from Wellington in Central West NSW. I was born in Wellington and have lived here for most of my life. I am married to Peter, who is also a true Wellington local. We have two adult children and a two gorgeous grandsons that light up our world. I play golf, swim, kayak and enjoy gardening and reading when I’m not making soap. Our house is beautifully scented with all the soaps I have curing and there is no shortage of succulents at our house either.

Why did I start making soap?

I fell into soap making and selling quite by accident really! I love handmade lemongrass soap, but was continually unable to buy at our local markets, so I started making my own. My family and extended family loved it. I ran out and was making some more and thought…If I can’t buy it, maybe no-one else can! I also have a love for succulents, and made some planters and put up on social media, and everyone loved them. Hence Janelle’s Soaps & Succulents was born. It came at the right time in my life, combines two of my passions and keeps me really busy. And I love it!
