Nestled into the Village Shops in Gatlinburg, the Misty Mountain Soap Company both look and smell delightful before you even step through the front door. The entire shopping plaza has the feel of a quaint ski lodge nestled into a corner of a remote mountain range. When you enter Misty Mountain Soap Company, that impression intensifies. Warm, friendly staff, ample testers to sample the products, and lovely scents that don’t overwhelm the senses all come together to make for a pleasant experience that your skin will thank you for.

Misty Mountain Soap Company sells its products throughout the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area, but this is their flagship store. Here, you’ll find all of their products in one place–from (you guessed it!) a huge variety of bar soaps to more unique products like zero-waste shampoo and conditioner bars, natural insect repellants, and ache-no-more cream to help tone down the aches and pains that are bugging you. Their bath bombs come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors. And hair and skin conditioners, lotions, and balms all comprise simple, wholesome ingredients that beg to be taken home.

You’ll find a huge variety of soaps here, from goat milk soap (the soap that started it all) to charcoal, oatmeal, and herb-based soaps that meet different skin needs. If you’re not sure which soap or lotion is right for your skin, the staff are more than willing to talk to you about the properties of each to help you find the right one.

Misty Mountain Soap Company does offer some fragrance-free options for those who are sensitive to fragrances. You’ll also be delighted to find that the many fragrances don’t knock you over when you open the door, as happens in some skin care chain stores. Instead, the scents gently welcome you in. This is a great place to stop, whether you’re grabbing something you forgot to pack for your trip or stocking up on souvenirs. Expect reasonable prices, a huge variety of products, and unfussy packaging that make you want to keep coming back for more.

Misty Mountain Soap Company is located in the Gatlinburg Village Shoppes, right off the main parkway. You’ll find a huge variety of shopping and dining opportunities in the same shopping area, making this a great stop for retail therapy, great coffee or hot chocolate, or a cozy dinner.

Insider Tips:
-Pull a muscle while hiking, or just need something to take the edge off an ache or pain? Misty Mountain Soap Company Ache-No-More lotion is well-known in the area, and it works great to help ease achy joints and muscles after a long day of exploring.
-Ask about the fragrance of the month when you stop in; each month, one or two fragrances (typically seasonally-appropriate blends) are selected to go on sale; you can’t go wrong by shopping these items if they tickle your fancy.
