Another perfect purchase. If you or anyone you know has eczema or multiple contact allergies the 1841 Lye soap is for you. This soap has truly been a blessing in our lives.

About

The story of the Cats in the Cradle

Cats in the Cradle was started in 1991 as a means to help support an ever growing number of stray and injured cats that found their way to our old New England farmhouse. We found homes for many of them over the years but inevitably others became our own house pets.
Today that number is much less, we now dote on our few kitties and do the best we can for the occasional transient stray.
In addition to handmade soaps and skin care products, I offer vintage and antique treasures gathered far and wide from years of collecting. I love hunting for wonderful old treasures to offer in my shop.
My handmade soaps and skin care products are made in small batches using the finest natural botanical ingredients and cold process. They are long lasting and beautifully packaged with vintage images, original artwork and antique papers. I hope you enjoy using them as much as I enjoy making them!

If size is an issue and measurements or size is given in the listing it is your responsibility to insure a proper fit and ask all questions before purchasing.
