We hope you enjoy reading our Love Letters as much as we do!!!
Order got here in a flash! Lavender is for one friend in particular for her birthday, and maybe some other lucky birthday persons will get soap too. No guarantees I will part with my bars!
I tried some of the beautiful soap from Lush. Although it looked dry there was a huge amount of evaporation in the soap bars. They were just rattling around in the once-tight packaging by the time I got to using them some months later. Some discoloration too. I should not stray from Hill Country Haiku again!!
Glad you are carrying on, Leta!

I figured that you must have been in the area and not just made a special trip out here to deliver it. I used the bluebonnet soap today in the shower, and its great. My whole bathroom smells a little like fresh flowers and spring...I love it. Liz...Cedar Park, TX
Yes, everything arrived in time and the soaps were a big hit with everyone at the office (and we had a few left over for ourselves).
Thanks for making such a unique gift-worthy product.
Dear Ms. Leta,
We received our shipment of soaps today. The postman said his truck never smelled so good! My two sisters and I have made an annual pilgrimage to Wimberly for the past two years just to get our hands on your soaps. Imagine our excitement when we discovered that we could order online. I think you spoke to one of my sisters a week or so ago. We were having trouble placing our order online, but everything seems to work perfectly now. I had the soaps delivered to my office address; we don't have a mail receptacle outside of our house and the new postmaster is still trying to match P O Boxes to physical addresses. I didn't want to leave any room for him (being a new guy) losing our order.
Anyway, your soaps add a little bit of luxury to our lives. Rest assured, once we've used these up, we are certainly going to place another order, and another, and another....no other product compares to your soaps. Your formula is the best. The only downside is that I hope our ability to order online does not diminish my family's annual pilgrimage to The Red Door in Wimberly; we usually make the trip in October, but didn't this year because we knew we were going to order online. Hopefully, we can find some time this spring to make the trip. Nothing beats walking into the store, scouting out our favorites, and stumbling upon a scent that we haven't tried before.
Also, thanks for the thoughtfulness in packing our order. The small touches you added, the soap dish, soap net, and letter, are much appreciated. Thanks also for the swapping out the lotion for the shea, another one of your marvels!
If we don't see you in Wimberly next year at The Red Door, you certainly will hear from us online! Thanks for making your products so easily accessible.
P. S. One of the most difficult things to do with your soaps is HAVING TO SHARE WITH FRIENDS! My sisters and I are very selfish when it comes to your soaps!!! Of the 42 bars we ordered, only 4 or 5 are gifts for friends. The rest to be split among the 3 of us.
Sincerely, your most loyal customers from Louisiana,
Dianne Spencer and
Love your soaps and wish they were available in one of my local stores. We have Biggs & Featherbell which is made locally and sold by many organic stores but they can't compare to HKH. Thanks for keeping me clean and soft during our cold winter in Maryland.

I recently purchased the Orange Blossom and LOVE IT! My daughter uses it also on her dry hands and now they are SOFT! I will buy and try more of your products!
I just received my order from you. Wow! Beautifully packaged!
Thank you SO much for my soap & soap dish, and the delightful surprise of the few sample soaps you included as well.
I was very curious about your other scents, now I can "try before I buy".
I can't wait to try the raspberry one!!
I'm home sick today, but even with a stuffy nose, your soaps smell heavenly...and made me feel a little better. : )
Again, thank you!
Sheila P, Quakertown, PA
I hope you have a great day. I can't wait to get my order! Your soaps made my heat rash go away and even my husband got totally addicted to it (and he usually does not go for handmade soap ever!). Again, I can't wait to get more of your soap, my skin and nose miss it.
Amy Murphy, Austin Texas
We've been using your soap so long here at home (in Colorado) that I think we take it for granted. But when we go up North to our cabin we are reminded! It is so dry there that your soap makes all the difference!
Gerry West, Denver, Colorado
I had only purchased a bar or two before, but now I am hooked on it and will be sure to stock up this time. Besides working so nicely with my skin, since becoming pregnant again it's the only scent I can tolerate,haha!! I'll see you later this month!
Wendy, Cedar Park, Texas
Thank you! I am so excited to be giving your products as gifts this season. They are so unique and beautiful. And the service you provided today has also added to my shopping experience. (You can put this part on your website.)
Anne Perch, Houston, Texas
We'd run our of soap for a while until I got back down to Wimberley last weekend. Next morning I walked into the bathroom and Brad was latherin up and saying, "Man, I love this soap, I love this soap." Thanks for making my manly man happy. (-:
Cathy Brown, Spicewood, Texas (Cathy is responsible for the following Love Letter too:)
(written to Cathy Brown) I've been using the soap that you gave us from the shop in Wimberley. Love it, love it, love it!!! I know some people just have them for decoration, but I like using my nice stuff. Can't take it with me, right?
I bought a jar of your shea butter from a friend and gave it to my husband to use on his feet as he is a diabetic and has little circulation in his feet giving him dry skin, it has worked better than any scripts we have been given by doctors. I am sending one to my mom in California as she suffers also with heat rash and I told her how your shea has helped my husband. Thanks again for the products. I am sure more orders will follow.
Leslie T., Cedar Park, Texas
My grandbaby came by this morning and picked up a bar of your soap and couldn't but it down. She's 16 months old and in love with your fragrance. It is your oatmeal milk and honey. I make the same fragrance myself but it smells nothing like yours. Would it be to much to ask for your supplier. I just love it and would love to try and carry it myself. Not to mention all the baby products for grandbaby. :-)
Can you hear me squealing???????ohoooooo. I love this Blackberry and Sage soap I just received in my order! The "balm" in the tin container you gave me 2 years ago lasted fooooorever. I had it with me in my purse 2009 when I was a witness at trial in Lampasas and we witnesses took turns balming up! My friend Mary was also witness , and I thought she was going to get high!
Betty Rials, Lampasas, Texas
....and Lord knows I am at the age where the abuse of the sun on my skin inspires me to look for a way to heal my own “envelope”, and the idea of being able to share with others a natural “cure” is very appealing. Kind of like the value you feel when you serve your kids, family, friends, homemade biscuits or fresh grown tomatoes...you know what I mean. Thanks again for sharing your ‘dreamy’ shea butter.
I need more shea butter. It’s gone fast and I’ve passed your cards to ladies who thought my skin looked great. Even my doctor said it looked healthy. Of course I want to send it to everyone I know.
Mickey T. Austin,Texas
Thank you for making up a special batch of peppermint soap for me. You wanted a report on the ‘tingle’ factor...it is just right!
Bobby M, Houston, Texas
....your soap suggestion for the guest bath is absolutely perfect!
It has just the welcoming effect I was looking for.
I feel like June Cleaver.
Kim R, Spicewood, Texas
I’m so excited! My shea butter is supposed to arrive today - you ship FAST! I fell in love with the sample you sent, it was just a little bit of heaven!
Becky K, Nebraska
I recently went through the wringer for about 4 weeks to get good shea, which I use in everything I make. First I got green shea, then I got marigold shea, finally I found Hill Country Haiku and now I get great natural beige shea on a regular basis. Her service is great and her prices are the best and with her quality I’d happily pay more (don’t say anything!!)
Jody B., Ohio
I received a gift of some of your products. Your soap is simply a gift that keeps on giving. In the underwear and sock drawer it gives up some of its scent. After a shower, even those who don’t even know you thank you. After the soap was gone from one of the loofah bars, I saved the loofah for the soap dish to rest the hand soap on and keep it dry. When I finish another, I plan to do the same with it until all the bar soaps in the house have a loofah to rest on.
Clive and Curtis (retired and rolling down the road in their motorhome)
Lady, this soap is “da bomb”, wonderful, maaaahvelous!!!!! After using my bar I even love the jojoba spheres. Who would have thought they were exfoliating, stimulating! This is by far the best bar of soap I have ever purchased.
I just got my unrefined shea...boy that was fast. I am so very pleased with this product. It is just wonderful used neat...disappears right into my skin with no greasy after-feel. And my skin feels so silky and moisturized! I am looking forward to experimenting with it. I wonder how many of my products will be even better with an addition of your terrific shea?
My husband used your shea butter for the first time today and called it dreamy creamy silky smooth. I guess I had better get more (I wasn’t planning on sharing it!)
I am using the shea I purchased from you and it is soooooooooo nice, have rubbed it on my winter hangnails, even around my nose and sinus glands and the shea has helped that too.
Betty R, Lampasas, Texas
Thank you so much for making this wonderful raw shea available! Is is the best I have ever used and there is such a difference in the skin feel between your shea and the cosmetic counter shea. I am recommending it to everyone I think of.
Vicky K, Burnet, Texas
I love my shea butter! Or should I say I love your shea butter? It’s beautifully creamy, has that nice nutty natural scent, and it arrived so quickly!
And I love simply looking at your soap almost as much as I do using it! I was studying, very closely, the magnificent swirled colors in a bar of your soap today. Stark naked, 52 years old, too many pets and un-read books, and I’m sitting in the tub peering at your soap. The lighter colors when wet even sparkle! I had a wonderful afternoon peering at your wet soap. Well, not the WHOLE afternoon!
Sue K, Ohio
It lathers like crazy!!!! It feels fantastic, very moisturizing while washing and a wonderful afterfeel once the air hits the skin. My skin is SUPER dry, so when a bar of soap makes my hands Not make noise when I rub them after they are dry, that is impressive. I can’t even hear my fingers when I rub them together and it usually sounds like sand paper. I’ll say you have a pretty great luxury bar here!!! Seriously, my hands are nice and dry and my rings are flopping all over the place. That’s a good sign that it’s got residual moisturizing when my rings flop!!
Teri N., Oregon
I received my order of shea butter today and I wanted to Thank You. You were sure lightning fast to ship it out! I appreciated the hand written note on your business card also, what a thoughtful thing to do! I know you must be very busy, but you took the time to do that! I just had to let you know how wonderful your product and service to to me.
Many thanks,Krystal D
Thank you for your very kind note.
Your soap truly is a work of art. The texture, the swirls, the fragrances..they are all so precise and technically perfect. I had someone in the shop yesterday looking at your soap, and I was able to honestly say that I gave it a 10 out of a 10, overall as a bar of soap. Again, thank you for such a fabulously wrapped package. It was a delight to open.
