In a serene little stand fragrant with lavender and lemongrass, Lynette Manteau ties soaps into ribboned bundles. Trained as an anthropologist and sociologist, she began making soap 20 years ago as a hobby after reading a book about it. Five years later she started selling soap on a cart in Reading Terminal. Now, Terralyn is open every day of the week, and she still makes all of her soaps and other products entirely by hand in small batches from all natural ingredients. Subtly fragranced with essential oils and colored with natural hues, the soaps are available in basic bars or in little bundles of gift soaps molded into hearts, flowers, and Celtic knots. Though soap was her first love, Terralyn also offers a variety of bath salts, oils, natural toothpaste, mud masques, and sachets, all handmade and all natural.
