I’m Tanya Braukman! Owner and creator of Rough Cut Soap Co. Born and raised in Oregon and currently living in the heart of Oregon’s wine country with my husband, Shane, daughter Penelope, and two feisty kittens, Hef & Dash. My love for the arts started at a very young age and as I got older, I knew I was meant to create, and now there is not a day that goes by that I don’t make something!
I’ve dabbled in plenty of mediums and have been passionate about many techniques-but in 2014 I found my addiction – traditional soap making! It’s a lovely combination of science and hands-on techniques that allows me to experiment and create functional art. My soaps are all-natural, utilizing essential oils and colored strictly with botanicals, herbs and clays. Along with with being healthy, my soaps have a very organic and artistic vibe including beautiful topping grown in my home garden or sourced locally within my community.
I now have a successful, handmade business and every day I strive to reintroduce people to the simplicity of natural skincare and remind them that the art of handmade is not lost.
