About Dawn & Jack

At Bathena, we know that small acts of self-care make a big difference in your world. That's why we've dedicated ourselves to creating luxurious, handmade soaps, scrubs, candles, and bath bombs that will nourish your skin and soothe your soul. Each product is carefully made by hand, ensuring that every bar of soap, candle, and bath bomb is as unique as you are.

But we don't just want to make you feel good, we also want to do good. That's why a portion of every sale goes to charity, supporting organizations that help people in need.

Bathena began with our founder, Dawn, who is a cancer survivor. After battling the disease and the pandemic, she rediscovered the healing power of soapmaking. And with the support of her husband Jack, she decided to turn her passion into a business. Now, Bathena is a family-run operation, dedicated to spreading a little love and care to everyone who uses our products.

So, whether you're treating yourself to a relaxing soak in the tub or looking for a thoughtful gift, Bathena has something for you. With every purchase, you'll be supporting a small business and making a difference in the world. 

Soapmaker Dawn

Dawn, the master soapmaker at Bathena, has been creating beautiful soaps for over 15 years. Her love for soapmaking began as a hobby, but it wasn't until the pandemic and her own journey with cancer that she decided to turn her passion into a business.

For Dawn, soapmaking is an art. She loves experimenting with different scents, colors, and ingredients to create unique and luxurious products. Her soaps are not only gentle on the skin, but designed to put a smile on your face.

Dawn's experience with cancer has given her a deep appreciation for the healing power of natural products. That's why she's committed to creating soaps that are not only good for you, but also good for the environment.

At Bathena, Dawn's passion for soapmaking shines through in every bar of soap. Try them for yourself and discover the difference that a handmade, all-natural product can make.
