Putnam Provisions Co is our storefront but also serving Coffee, Teas and Food!


Hello - My name is Connie and have been making soap, natural, nourishing bath and body products since 2011.  I have formulated the best handmade soap recipes formulations - as I pair quality ingredients with locally sourced additives and creativity. It is a combination of chemistry and art. I didn't make to sell, I made because I needed to for me. 


What sets Good Horse Scents soaps/products aside from other handcrafted soap?  I have worked diligently to create formulas that not only clean and nourish, but also help to guard your skin against the daily exposure to the elements.  As a HCSG Certified Soap Maker, our products are scientifically based with ingredients derived from nature.


Formulations include several different combinations of oils, fats and butters to have something for everyone.  

  • Our primary Oils and Butters are:  Olive, Apricot Kernel, Rice Bran, Castor, Avocado, Sunflower, Grapeseed Oil, Coconut, Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter and Mango Butter

  • We also use Hemp, Brazil nut, Pracaxi Oil, Babassu Oil, Passionflower Oil, Kukui Nut, and more but never Sweet Almond, Soy or Canola oils.

  • We are very conscious of individual skin intolerances- allergies. 

  • We have animal fat (sourced locally) and Vegan Bars as well. 

  • If you need a bar without a particular ingredient - I can do that! We custom formulate as requested. 


We also use the beautiful colors and textures from herbs and botanicals. 

No fragrance oils will be found here- only plant based essential oils if we think they are important and smell amazing.

It is important to us that you see the purpose of the soap “don’t be gross wash with soap!” But it sure is beautiful enough to decorate your home - we just suggest using it to have your skin nourished, never stripped of the natural oils, vitamins and minerals


We also want you to see the artisan designed soap- the creativity- the combination of the plants to create a swirl, a scene, etc.  

Oh and all SOAP is made with LYE! If you don't see that on a label - it definitely is not true soap!
