Bayou Bath Company Opens

01/31/2015 02:54PM ● Published by Gail Garcia

 As you walk in the door the delightful aromas of herbs and bath soaps fill the room. These smells bring back memories of childhood for Patty Lancon, the owner of Bayou Bath Company. Lancon opened the new business on January 31 at 1407 Main Street in Jeanerette. For Lancon, opening the shop was a way of doing something she loved and giving back to the community.

“I see a lot of positive in Jeanerette and I want to help it happen,” Lancon said. By opening the new business, she is able to offer artists and crafters an opportunity to place items for sale in the store while offering new shopping opportunities for the city.

Her love of soap developed when she was a child and slowly she has turned that art into a business.

“I’m interested in herbs and oils and natural ways to do things,” she said. “Ever since I was a little girl I wanted to open a shop.”

Lancon began handcrafting her soaps at home and selling them at Farmer’s Markets throughout the area. The business grew even more when her husband, Louis Lancon, took on growing herbs and other plants as part of the Sugar City Growers Co-op. Those herbs have been incorporated into many of the natural products that Patty Lancon now sells.

The new business offers pillow case dresses, home made jewelry, wooden bowls and cutting boards, unusual gift items, kitchen items, paintings, embroidered towels, and many more gift items along with a large selection of bath soaps, lotions, bath salts and candles.

Lancon even makes specialized gift baskets with favorite fragrances that are chosen by the buyer.

Bayou Bath Company is open Tuesday-Friday from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
