Under the Cherry Blossoms' artist Beth Shannon
Artist Beth Shannon with The Tempting Tub makes artisan olive oil soaps and natural bath products for the entire family. How did she get started making soaps, you may wonder. Here is Beth's story in her own words.
"During the I-can’t-leave-3-boys-home-alone-or-the-house-will-burn-down season in my life, my husband and I wrangled a sitter, and fled to Barnes and Noble for a 'date'.  
'Get a hobby,' he said.  'Learn something new,' he implored. Sigh. I’m tired. What I need is a massage, a pint of ice cream. A vacation. Maybe swap the minivan for a cute car to drive up A1A to who-knows-where.  Maybe they won’t notice I left. 
What I need is an oasis from my daily grind.  
What I got on that eventful evening in 2001, was an oasis. It was in the form of a $34.99 kit on the art of making soap, of all things.  Part chemistry.  Part art.  A creative, messy and fragrant journey.   And as they say—the the rest is history.

After all these years, we still love the process formulating luxurious bathing products for you.  Quality food-grade oils, luxurious butters, premium fragrances and extra goodness to create everyday luxuries that smell fabulous and are kind to your skin.   No filler oils, foaming agents, or other harsh additives that typically “anger” our skin.  Our products are phthalate-free and great for the entire family, great for the planet and great for your peace of mind.

So, what was a gift to me—is my hope—will be a gift for you or for someone else.  A gift that keeps on giving, that provides a much needed oasis from the daily grind—in a fragrant bath or shower."
