So long, farewell

Hello friends,

I have some unexpected news, Sailor Mouth Soaps has now closed on a semi-permanent hiatus while I re-locate interstate for work.

Everything has happened very quickly and I understand it's not the ideal time of year for my lovely customers (who are starting to place their Christmas orders) for me to close up and for that I am very sorry for the inconvenience.

All pending orders will be processed as per normal lead times and you will receive them shortly.

Another special apology is due for my wholesale customers wanting to place Christmas orders, I wish I could assist but am on a very tight time frame right now and cannot give your orders the time and care they deserve.

For Brisbane locals, until the end of November you can find a selection of products at Collective Avenue ( and anything unsold will then be auctioned off on Facebook if I have time before I leave.

My Etsy & Big Cartel stores have been shut but you can still leave feedback on Etsy for past orders, for now I’ve just deactivated all listings. Big Cartel was a difficult thing to do as I had to drop back to a free account while meant permanently deleting 84 items (ouch!) and losing all of that content. Sad face. Oh well, onwards and upwards.

Thank you so much for your past support, I’ve met some amazing people and I value each and every person that has placed an order over the last 3 ½ years. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Flavours, GF, Q&A's, new locations & packaging upgrades

So yesterday, in frantic last minute preparation for the opening of Collective Avenue (a little shop of happiness) I was making a tonne of new lip balms and decided to take this quick picture before they were put into cute little trio gift boxes. I'll have a picture of them soon!

I can't decide which I like more, they are all smell so wonderfully yummy . I was hungry just making them.

The hygiene sleeves have been updated too, they now have a perforated top so you can leave the rest of the sleeve on the balm so as not to mess up the labels in your bag, yay! This little change makes me very happy, it's far more user friendly now.

Also I have mentioned before but it's worth saying again, the formula is now gluten free (GF) as I switched the Vit E (from wheatgerm) to Jojoba Oil. It feels more silky to wear and won't upset gluten intolerant tummy's.

I had an interesting question emailed to me today and I thought it was worth sharing here:-

I got a couple of lip balms from you a short while back. The Strawberry and the Apple. Just wondering...are they supposed to be kinda grainy? You have to press quite hard onto your lips to get them to transfer. Not sure if they are supposed to be like this, being all natural ingredients?

Hi Kat!

Mango butter is a bit sensitive to extremes of heat and cold, it can make it go a little grainy but it won't affect the nourishing properties of the butter. The balm I keep in my car has gone a bit grainy too 

They do take a little moment to begin melting so I hold mine to my lips for about 2 seconds then apply as normal.

I made them to be a little harder so as not to melt the second we get a day about 33*.

Thank you for asking! It is a very good question. 



If you have any questions about anything to do with my products, please don't hesitate to contact me. I promise to reply quickly :D

Have a great day and for Brisbane locals, remember Sailor Mouth Soaps will be available at the Mount Ommaney Centre at the Collective Avenue Boutique this Oct/Nov (hopefully longer).

Shop in Brisbane's Western Suburbs

I'm very excited to announce that this Christmas you will be able to find Sailor Mouth Soap goodies among other amazing local handmade products at a unique pop-up-shop at the Mount Ommaney Centre just off the Centenary Motorway.

It's run by the lovely ladies at Collective Avenue and is open full trading hours for the shopping centre, plus they have loads of parking! You know how hard parking is at Christmas time huh.

As a special treat, a lot of the products available will be totally new to the range! I won't give too much away but suffice to say, my love and obsession with animals features quite a bit.

Stay tuned on Facebook for sneak peeks of new stock going in and as the shop launches, pictures of the stall too.
