Homemade in small batches, this cold process soap smells good enough to eat! (WARNING: DO NOT ATTEMPT TO EAT!) Scented with a blend of smooth Almond and Honey fragrances, with Texas Cedarwood essential oil added to for more depth and grown up appeal. With this particular scent, oatmeal was a natural addition. Montana grown toasted oat flour, and Scottish stone milled oats add a little bit of grit, while rolled oats decorate the top as a gentle reminder to the oats contained inside. This soap features sweet almond oil and locally sourced beeswax to go with the theme. This soap is my boy’s new favorite. Go figure, it’s also their favorite hearty breakfast in soap form!
All oats, in all forms contained within this recipe are certified a gluten free.
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.

List of ingredients since it's nice to know what you're getting into...(The shower with!)
Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Water*, Olive Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Sodium Hydroxide**, Beeswax***, Fragrance, Texas Cedarwood Essential Oil, Stone Milled Oats, Toasted Oat Flour****, Rolled Oats.
*Water will, or at least mostly evaporate out by the end of the curing process
**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!
***Beeswax is from a local beekeeper. I was able to process the wax and separate the honey from the comb, but I would still call it an unrefined beeswax because there may be pollin or propolis still present in small amounts
**** This Toasted Oat Flour is Montana Grown, and certified Gluten Free.
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.
