%> Available (Estimated): 2

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 simple square bar (this listing) or a molded bar of your choice of an owl, buffalo, bear, or moose (separate listing). The fragrance contains vanilla, which tints the soap a light brown/tan, which I think compliments the animals well. The plain square bar comes hand-wrapped in brown paper with labels as well. 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.
