Homemade in small batches, this cold process soap is purely scented with Bulgarian lavender essential oil. The ingredients, however are anything but plain. With a recipe borrowed from my ever popular "Farmhouse Soap Collection" this soap includes argan oil, shea butter and local fresh goat's milk from a farm in Lakeside, MT. This is a classic scent, with a luxurious twist that screams sophistication. Call me a lavender snob, but because this soap is scented with lavender essential oil, and NOT a fragrance oil, it doesn't have that baby powder scent that many so-called lavender products have. Perfect for the lavender aficionados of the world. Given the nature of essential oils, this soap makes for an unbeatable spa like shower experience, yet wears very light on the skin. This way, it does not overpower your signature perfume or lotion scent.
Many of my listed soaps contain different ingredients from one to the next, but that is what gives them their farmhouse charm by using whatever is on hand! If you are looking for a soap with a specific ingredient, let me know! I may have just what you're looking for in the works or on the curing rack! Keep in mind, it can take several weeks to cure (even more for some soaps!) I can ship about 6 soaps in my smallest shipping box option.
Details about this listing
Weight: approx. 3 oz bar of cold process soap
Dimensions: approx 3"x 3" X 1"
I have found this to be the a perfect and manageable handheld size!
Ingredients: (So you know what you’re getting into the shower with!)
Goat milk*, Coconut oil, Olive oil, Palm oil, Sodium Hydroxide**, Safflower oil, Argan oil, Unrefined Shea butter, Lavender essential oil.
* Goat milk is locally sourced from a little farm in Lakeside, MT
**Keep in mind NO sodium hydroxide (lye) is present in the final product, but is necessary in the production of homemade soaps made from oils or animal fat. Because the labeling of clean, old fashioned soap is largely unregulated by the the U.S. FDA (as long as you're not making any claims as to it's healing or cosmetic properties etc) you may find others label their ingredients differently, using phrases such as "saponified oils of..." or the name for the end-product of the saponification process. For example:
Sodium Olivate (saponified form of olive oil)
All mean the same thing! A chemical reaction between lye and oils/fat has occurred! I prefer to label all the initial ingredients going in the soap batter. If you have any questions, let me know!
Since it's my motherly duty, I would also like to add, please don't get soap in your eyes. It will burn no matter what!
Also, please know I care about my customers, and do my best to label but cannot make guarantees for those with known sensitivities or allergies to any of the ingredients in any of my soap collection since all are made on the same equipment in the same facilities (cleaned between uses) and share close quarters on a curing rack.
