Valerie’s Haida name is Slin-ga_a_Jaad, which means “creative girl”. This name is very fitting as Valerie was always looking for an artistic outlet, dabbling in countless arts and crafts but none were an obvious match for her creative spirit. In 2003 a friend gifted her a bar of handmade soap and a passion was born. Every free moment was spent taking courses, attending conferences, studying aromatherapy and making soap. In 2013 Valerie retired from the corporate world to pursue soap making full time.
Being from the Raven Clan of Skedans many of Valerie’s inspirations come from this heritage. She finds a strong connection the the moon (RavenSong Full Moon Soap), the water (RavenSong West Coast Wave and Stormy Waters Soap) and of course – the Raven (logo and name). Her signature bar; Haida Potlatch Spa Bar, was created for her Uncle Percy’s Potlatch and RavenSong has continued to make if for gift shops and galleries.
RavenSong Soap & Candle has won many awards – Full Moon Spa Bar won at the National Soap Conference in Banff Alberta in 2015, and the Haida Potlatch Spa Bar won first place at the International Soap Making Conference in Las Vegas in May 2017.
RavenSong Soap & Candle is catching the interest of Gift Shops and Galleries across the lower mainland as well as influencers like Kevin Herrington of Shark Tank and As Seen on TV.
Classes are suspended for now and a new schedule will be released when the Covid19 restrictions are lifted.

This luxury soap is made entirely by hand in the cold process tradition.
“Made by hand” means hand stirring and blending, pouring, cutting, trimming and wrapping each unique bar. From formulation to blending to resting and curing, every bar has been through at least a four week process to get to your home.
I believe when you begin with beautiful ingredients such as shea butter and mango butter, olive and almond oil, goats’ milk, yogurt and buttermilk, honey, activated charcoal clays, and essential oils – you can create beautiful soap. This also ensures that RavenSong Soap will be a luxurious way to pamper yourself every day.
