Lemon + Grapefruit. This bar of soap has a creamy lather and a clean and crisp scent. As with all my other soaps, I use a blend of oils that combine cleansing and moisturizing properties to make a bar of soap that will leave your skin clean but not dry.
Because I use essential oils instead of synthetic fragrances, the scent is not as strong as industrially made soaps. A perfect soap for all.
100% Saponified Winding Brook Farm Lard (Strafford, VT) , Organic Olive Oil infused with homegrown Calendula, Coconut Oil, Organic Shea Butter, Organic Castor Oil, Essential Oil Blend (Litsea Cubeba, Lemon, Grapefruit essential oils), Pink Australian Clay, White Clay
All my soaps, unless marked Vegan, contain local animal fat I render on my woodstove. In this soap, I used local animal fat (pig/lard) fromWinding Brook Farm in Strafford VT, 2 miles from my house.

Cold Process Soap
I make my soap using the cold process method, which is the traditional way of making soap. The process includes first, letting the soap harden in a mold for several days, then a curing period of 4-6 weeks depending on what oils are used.
This is why soaps in my shop are not always available after a scent has sold out.
All my soaps are superfatted at 5%, which means that some fat in the soap are not saponified, which is one of the reasons my handcrafted soap is gentle on your skin (that and the fact I am not using any synthetic fragrance or colorant).
How to use
Lather and Rinse. Test on small area of skin first, stop use if irritation occurs.
How to care for your soap
With proper care, your natural handcrafted soap will last longer than industrially made soaps. Make sure your soap is on a small dish that allows for airflow between usage to extend its lifespan.
If you don't have a soap dish yet, I sell soap dishes made close by by a friend.
Net Weight approx. 4 oz. My soaps are handcrafted and hand cut, actual weight and appearance may vary slightly.
