From The Beginning

Our Beginning

Soap Maker at Her Shop

Bath Divas was started by Cherie Szilvagyi as an avenue to help smaller makers get bulk pricing on their supplies.  By combining our buying power everyone could get better prices on the supplies to create their products.​

"From our original group members we soon learned that they all needed recipes and assistance in creating the products.  Our incredible members started helping each other to succeed.  From one product to the next our group has grown so that our files contain so many tried and true recipes. Members have stepped up and created how to videos on those product recipes.  


I want to say thank you to all the members who have helped others along our journey.  You are all rock stars!!  I so appreciate each and every one of you."

Cherie passed the torch to Laura Staley on September 1, 2022. Her new focus is spending more time as a maker, and helping the makers in our Bath Divas group succeed at whatever level fits their aspirations. Her experience spans 47 years of making soap, operating a bath and body business, owning a brick and mortar store, and selling at pop-up events.

Laura Staley has a passion for small business and helping others succeed. With a background in marketing and business development, she also brings soap-making, bath and body experience, and 8 years of pop-up events as well as running a brick and mortar store to our group.
