Zoet Bathlatier is an artisan candle and apothecary line with inspiration rooted in nature and culture. Apothecary blends are infused with healing & nurturing properties to promote & maintain a naturally rich lifestyle. Our candles are inspired by the seasons and journeys traveled for you to enjoy in the home. Our end desire is to provide you with a sense of renewal and well-being within every product.

Zoet (pronounced zoot), is the Dutch word meaning: sweet, soft, gentle, fresh and the good things in life. Bathlatier™ (bath•la•tier) is a maker or seller of luxe home goods, bath and body concoctions. 

We handcraft our products with artisan quality in Malvern, Pennsylvania. Our products contain many natural ingredients, high quality essential oils, fine fragrances and botanicals. They are free from harsh preservatives such as parabens and phenoxyethanol, as well as phthalates, sulfates and artificial colors. Keeping in mind that we do not use preservatives in most of our products (body scrubs, bath products, body oils, and body butters) it is best to use within 6 months to 1 year from time of purchase.

Our line of fragrant candles combine soy/vegetable wax, lead-free cotton wicks, fine fragrances infused with essential oils. Zoet Bathlatier's candles are all hand-poured in small-batches and tested to make certain of even burn and fragrance output. 

About The Founder
You could say that Zoet Bathlatier’s Ilka Evans has roots in…roots. That’s because Ilka’s grandmother was a born-and bred South-Carolinian who had always created healing remedies from the various botanicals that grew wild in the Lowcountry. So it was fitting that Ilka was drawn to crafting bath and body formulations from her own combinations at an early age.
As she grew older she fell away from the hobby, but decided to pick it up again when she moved to Aspen, Colorado, and the dry air took a toll on her skin. Ilka began researching and had soon crammed her tiny apartment full of botanicals, clays, butters, and essential oils. Her concoctions were a hit with friends and co-workers, and her business “blossomed” from there.
The name “Zoet,” pronounced like “zoot” and meaning sweet, soft, gentle or fresh, is in reference to her maternal Dutch roots, and Bathlatier is a maker or seller of luxe home goods. Zoet Bathlatier has evolved from a tiny company producing gifts for friends into a luxurious one-stop shop for artisan candles, soaps and bath products such as sugar scrubs and body souffles. Many are created from organic and all-natural ingredients, and all wrapped up in gorgeous packaging almost to pretty to open (Ilka spent years as a graphic designer). For Zoet Bathlatier, everything is coming up roses.
