Grower: Solace Farm
Price: $13.50 ( 32 oz )
%> Available (Exact): 4

Handmade liquid soap, from scratch! I make this soap very concentrated, and have added an all-natural thickening agent (simply sea salt!) to make it the consistency of "store-bought" liquid soap. This is designed for the standard squirt-pump bottles, it is nice and thick so that it doesn't dribble, splatter, squirt on the wall, run off your hand, etc. like thinner liquid soap does. This is sold as a 28 oz refill for your existing squirt-pump bottle, it is packaged in a re-purposed plastic bottle that I received sodium hydroxide (lye) in for soap-making. The bottle has been thoroughly washed, and holds 28 oz of soap. Once you're finished with the bottle, 'd love to have it back to continue it's useful life - just return it the the farmer's market - or I hope you either recycle it, or re-purpose it again - I use dozens of these in my kitchen for storing grains, beans, flour, nut-meal, seeds etc, they're such a great size and fit well in a kitchen cabinet!  Fragrance options are: Honeysuckle Oatmeal Milk & Honey Goat Milk & Honey (smells like caramel!) Lavender Vanilla Sandalwood Vanilla Spiced Tobacco Spiced Red Tea White Tea & Ginger Apple Sage Espresso Tangerine Vanilla Peony Jasmine Citrus Splash Vanilla Hazelnut Peach Lavender Anise & Patchouli EO Cedar Bergamot EO Eucalyptus Mint EO Ginger Lime & Lavender EO Cedarwood & Sage EO Grapefruit Sage EO Yling Ylang Lavender EO Lavender EO Eucalyptus Lime EO Any of the EO (essential oils) scents are mixed by me, so if you'd like a custom fragrance (any EO alone, or  2-3 in a blend that I don't already have available) just include that in a "note to the grower", I'm happy to do that. This is a concentrated liquid lard soap, made here on the farm from hand-rendered lard courtesy of Cove Creek Farm.  This handmade soap is 80% local lard and 20% coconut oil, which adds extra cleaning power and lather.  My bar lard soap has gotten great reviews, so I've simply converted the same recipe to liquid form for those of you that prefer the convenience of liquid over bar soap. I love that I can make a great soap mostly from local ingredients sourced right here in Tennessee – most of my other soap ingredients come from halfway around the world, so I'm excited that I can reduce my (and therefore your) carbon footprint and source most of this soap locally!  Lard soap is surprisingly moisturizing and gentle on skin. While lard soap often has a reputation for being harsh or rough on skin, that is largely because many years ago, lye was not consistently refined, and people didn't use precision measurements.  Today, with 100% pure lye and a digital scale, lard makes a beautiful soap, very hard and long-lasting, with good cleaning power, while being surprisingly gentle and great for skin. I have gotten great reviews about how wonderful this soap is on skin - gentle, moisturizing, cleansing, and no residue.
