Meet the Night Owl
Hello, my name is Sherry and I own, operate and create all of the products here at Night Owl Soapery. Born and raised in New Hampshire and now raising my own young children here. When I am not working on soap and body products I mostly enjoy being home and spending time with my family and our 3 cats. I am a full-time working, homeschooling Mom with a very busy schedule. My favorite food is pizza and wouldn’t rule it out as a payment alternative. I am an avid listener of podcasts that help expand consciousness and bring truth to light. I enjoy thinking outside of the box and following my intuition. I am left-handed and was born on Friday the 13th but still consider myself lucky. I value honesty and integrity above most other qualities. More importantly for the purpose of this page, I love all things soap making!
When I began this soap making journey I wasn’t sure exactly where it would lead, I only knew that I wanted to create my own skincare products that I could customize completely using the ingredients and scents that met my own high standards of quality, not just whatever was available on the shelf at the supermarket. What started out as a hobby quickly became an all-consuming obsession. I spent tons of time researching, reading and learning through soaping community groups and online resources. I purchased many courses to gain the skills and knowledge necessary to become the best soap maker I can be. It’s amazing how much there is to learn about something that is seemingly so simple.
Beyond the technical and more serious side of soap making is where the real fun begins, the artistic side. Colors and fragrance and swirls, oh my! The combinations are endless and ideas are always flowing. It's a form of expression I have not achieved through any other creative outlet. The main
elements of creating a batch soap for me consist of the recipe, scent, design and naming it, in no particular order. The creative process comes easier when welcomed organically with an open mind, and inspiration is everywhere. I love the challenge of learning and perfecting techniques. Cutting into a loaf to see the result is so exciting and rewarding!
Along the way I have developed signature recipes that check all the boxes for the most excellent soap. All of the hard work, dedication and investments that went into learning this trade resulted in soap that I am seriously proud of. I knew I had created products worth sharing and was beyond excited to begin this journey of turning my soap making into a business. I registered our LLC in May of 2020 and the rest is history. We have been on the best soap making adventure ever since. Our family loves using all of the soaps and body products we create and we’re confident yours will feel the same!
