When you purchase a soap from Hyssop Tree, you're actually paying for two. You get one, and the other one is given on your behalf to someone in need.
Your soap goes to someone struggling out of life's dark corner.
Here is a look at where our soaps have gone, and what we are accomplishing in our community.

Your soap made each child at a local facility feel loved, treasured and cared for – this Christmas she knows she’s valuable, beautiful and wanted.
