Grower: Solace Farm
Price: $4.00 ( 4 oz bar)
%> Available (Estimated): 4

A spicy, warm fragrance of vanilla, cloves and other spices, this is a great soap for men (my husband's favorite of all my soaps) or anyone really! This recipe is made with my own hand-milked goat milk, local lard from Pig Mountain farm that I render myself, and a little coconut oil and of course lye - that's it!. I love this soap, in fact I used to make this as a regular, non-goat milk soap, but then made a batch for a custom order and loved it so much I decided to convert my lard soaps to goat milk-lard soaps. It is nicely moisturizing, cleans really well with no residue, and has a great lather! This soap is available in a molded bar of your choice of an owl, buffalo, bear, or moose, or a simple square bar. The fragrance contains vanilla, which tints the soap a light brown/tan, which I think compliments the animals well. The animals are also available in either plain versions, or with natural mica color accents (see photos). All come in brown windowed paperboard boxes with complete labels. The plain square bar comes hand-wrapped in brown paper with labels as well. PLEASE MESSAGE ME WITH YOUR CHOICE OF ANIMAL AND COLOR/NO COLOR, OR I WILL CHOOSE BASED ON AVAILABILITY. I handmake all my soap in small batches, 6 to 36 bars at a time. If you have used a good handmade soap before, you know that it is a completely different creature than commercial soap, which can be so drying! When soap is made by hand, the chemical reaction of oils with a lye solution forms the substances soap and glycerin. A typical bar of handmade soap is roughly 1/3 glycerin! This is a humectant, meaning it pulls water from the air - when on your skin, it literally moisturizes your skin by attracting water to it. In commercial soaps, the glycerin is distilled and removed, and later sold back to you in a lotion, but in the "real thing", it is all one package.
