This large bar measures approximately 3.25-3.5 inches tall by 2.25-2.5 inches wide by .75-1 inch thick and weighs between 4-5 oz. Since soaps are made in small batches and every bar is hand cut, the size, shape, and color of each soap bar may vary slightly. Soaps are labeled with the name of the soap as well as a list of ingredients.
ingredients: olive oil, organic coconut oil, organic and sustainable palm oil, organic soybean oil, castor oil, water, sodium hydroxide*, our own organic dried sage, dried and ground lemon peels, lemon essential oil, sage essential oil, lemongrass essential oil.
*Sodium hydroxide or lye, is the chemical substance that causes saponification. Saponification is the natural reaction that causes oils and fats to transform into soap. Pure sodium hydroxide will never be in a finished bar of soap; it has reacted with the oils and has been chemically changed to form soap and glycerin. True handmade soap can not be made without lye.
I make all of our soap the old fashioned way in small batches here at the Kirk Estate, the 19th century haunted farmhouse and surrounding property where I live that has been preserved for five generations. Using the cold process method and a combination of natural and organic vegetable oils as well as organic herbs from our small scale farm, all of our soap is free of animal byproducts and artificial ingredients and has a light natural scent.
Handmade soap lasts longer if it is kept away from direct streams of water and is stored in a draining soap dish.
