About | Scent of the Sun

Scent of the Sun LogoScent of the Sun is a family soap company based in Gallatin, Tennessee and operating throughout the Greater Nashville Area. We started our business in 2013 with a passion for handmade, vegan creations that combine our love for beautiful designs and rich fragrances with a love for animals that manifests itself in our cruelty-free ingredients. We create and package our creations by hand, and our soapmaking philosophy is simple: to create nourishing bath goods that are as refreshing as they are beautiful.

What We Make

Our soapmaking philosophy is simple: to create a nourishing vegan soap that is as refreshing as it is beautiful.

Our vegan soaps are cruelty-free and do not use any animal products. Rather, we use a rich blend of olive oil, coconut oil, sustainable palm oil, and castor oil. We complement that mixture with shea and cocoa butters, “superfatting” the soap so that some of the oils remain unabsorbed when the soap takes shape. This process creates a creamy, moisturizing lather that is both easy and refreshing on the skin.

Where We Sell

In addition to our online shop, we also vend in-person every Saturday (in season) at the Gallatin Farmers’ Market and Murfreesboro Saturday Market. We also vend at a variety of craft shows. You can find our displays at Gallatin's Artisan Hatchery, Goodlettsville's Rare Bird Antique Mall, and Murfreesboro's Painted Tree Boutiques.
