About Natural Soaps...
Natural Vegetable soap is a quality product which leaves in the natural glycerin created during saponification. 

Many commercial soaps actually use animal fats and detergents (petroleum by product), creating a harsher soap with the glycerin removed to manufacture lotions and other cosmetics. 

Our soaps are an out growth of our love of herbs and their many beneficial properties. We have kept the soaps simple and tasteful. They are poured into boxes, cut and trimmed by hand. We feel the hand cut imperfections lend to their beauty. Each bar averages 4.0 oz. or more. 

We took time to think about each of our soaps, how they could best help each skin type and how they may be a useful, healthy bar. We are proud of the aromatherapy essential oils in each bar. Take time when you use them to breathe in the natural essence of the plants. You can not do that with the artificially fragranced/perfume bars you buy in bath shops at malls or grocery outlets. Take time to educate your sense of smell to the differences in man made fragrances and essential oils. Fragrances bite, sting or burn a bit as you inhale. Essential oils will soothe your nasal passages. 

If you don't purchase our soaps, please try another natural vegetable soap maker, to feel the difference from commercial soaps. (This does not include the transparent soaps, alcohol included in these may be drying to skin. Also find out if the soap is real handmade and not a melt and poured product) 

We hope you will enjoy our herbal soaps as much as we enjoyed making them...

Our Natural Soap Base...
We blend in herbs, and pure essential oils into saponified Olive Oil (largest bulk of our soaps), Coconut, and Palm Oil (we may add a small amount of Soy Bean vegetable shortening in some soaps - not Crisco, ours is 100% Soy Bean, no Cotton Seed!!). We use caustic soda with 5% excess of oils, so it's all used up in the saponification process.  Essential oils, Avocado oil, Jojoba Oil,Shea Butter, Hemp Oil or Cocoa Butterare used to keep skin soft and protected. Vitamin E is added as natural preservative, and has skin healing properties of it's own. 

We hope enjoy them as much as we enjoy making them!
