At Live Full I am living out some of my creativity by crafting beautiful soaps for my family, friends, and yours. I use only natural ingredients and value knowing exactly what we are putting on our skin. I love experimenting with new techniques and ingredients to creating unique luxury soaps. Some of my favourite soaps use infused locally foraged beneficial herbs in their recipes (like Wild Violet picutred with this listing). These soaps are wonderful gifts and would also make sweet wedding or other party favours.
Hello! I’m Krista, owner of Live Full, an artisan soap company crafting luxury soaps in Nelson, BC.
I use only natural ingredients in our products and am inspired by the myriad of ingredients available to natural soap makers. Creating herbal infused soaps is my favourite, but I also love using milks, clays, local coffee, and many other things to make unique and beautiful soaps for my family and yours.

In 2016, I took a short soapmaking course and I was instantly hooked! It’s turned into a passion and a part-time business. I love creating new products and combining colours and scents to create handmade soap! It’s like baking – without the calories.
All of my soap is cold-processed. This involves a 24-48 hour saponification process before unmolding and cutting the soap. Then soap has to cure for 4 to 6 weeks in order for the water to evaporate. It’s a long process but well worth the wait! The longer soap cures, the more long-lasting and gentle it is.
