(¸.•´ (¸.•` 💜 My handmade LAVENDER soap has a real "old time" lavender smell. Lavender has been known for its' reputed calming & soothing effects. This soap has a soft & flowery notes to it. Usually a feminine scent.
♥ My vegan bars are made 1 batch at a time in my log cabin in the beautiful foothills of Maryland. My vegan bars are approximately 5 ~ 6 oz in weight. I have been making soap for 10 years using the "hot process" to make my soaps. With the "cold process" method; you often have to wait up to a month to use your soap. The "hot process" speeds up this wait period; allowing you to use your soap sooner ~ which means your soap is fresher! There's nothing better than fresh soap!
♥ Being a vegetarian; I use no tallow, or harsh chemicals, only natural products I often grow myself, in my soap making. The only chemical in my soap is sodium hydroxide (lye) which you need to make bar soap.
~~~~~~~~ ♥ WHY CHOOSE HOMEMADE SOAP? ♥ ~~~~~~~~
Homemade soap should be included in every organic skin care regimen. When you use my soap, there is almost no need for a moisturizer afterwards due to the natural products, natural oils, Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, & Glycerin, etc.
Have you ever read the ingredient label of a soap bar made commercially? It consists of a lot of chemicals & maybe a few natural ingredients.
Handmade soaps play an important part in nourishing, moisturizing, exfoliating, & toning the skin. Herbs & essential oils infuse the skin with enriching nutrients. I "Super~Fat" my soaps after saponification with glycerin so you get that clean slick feel afterwards. Glycerin helps the skin retain moisture. The added Castor oil makes my soap really bubbly too. I even use my soap to shave with! My bars are super scented with quality Essential & Fragrance oils. I like my soap to stay scented all the way to the end of the bar! Handmade soaps are an inexpensive, luxurious, healthy, treat you can give yourself. Enjoy!
