This large bar measures approximately 3.25-3.5 inches tall by 2.25-2.5 inches wide by .75-1 inches thick and weighs between 4-5 oz. Since soaps are made in small batches using only natural ingredients which vary from season to season, and every bar is hand cut -the size, shape, color, and scent of each soap bar may vary slightly and from batch to batch. Soaps are labeled with the name of the soap as well as a list of ingredients.
ingredients: olive oil, organic coconut oil, organic palm kernel oil, organic soybean oil, wheatgerm oil, water, sodium hydroxide*, our own dried organic lavender, organic lavender 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.

Our small scale farm is worked the old fashioned way; no chemicals, no petroleum intensive machines -only sustainable farming practices that help to improve the land, the environment, the wildlife, and the people.
