I absolutely LOVE the scented oatmeal soap. I have been dealing with extremely dry skin due to radiation treatments and nothing I had been using helped until I used this soap. It is like a natural exfoliator, too. I have the rosemary mint, too, but have not used it yet.

Great lotion and love the concept, a tiny bit small compared to the tin but would still recommend

new favorite soap!! I have been using it since the day I purchased and it is still in tact. I will likely purchase another bar soon when this one runs out. the natural exfoliating "beads" (seeds) are the best part!!

About

Obsession turned Profession!

The Muddy Moose Bath Boutique, a small cottage industry , started out just like you might imagine: as a hobby. I wanted to learn how to make REAL SOAP....you know, using lye and everything. This desire set me on a quest, to learn how to do it the right way. I became, well, obsessed with everything soap making. I would like to dispute the fact that I was obsessed, but my husband would have to say otherwise. So I read and reread soap making books, researched online, talked to other soap makers and joined many online soap forums. Once I had compiled all the proper equipment and had the ingredients, it was time to make my first batch.
So on Christmas vacation one year, my sister-in-law, Cathy, and I set out to do just that. We stirred and stirred and stirred some more and finally that magical moment arrived: trace. This is the exciting stage during the soap making process that you get to add all fun stuff into your soap: herbs, scents, oatmeal and just about anything else your heart desires. Now, I can't necessarily attest to the qualities of that first batch, but we had achieved what we had set out to do: make soap. And I can't really say whether addictive personalities run in our family or if it is just my inner chemist coming out, but I must admit from that point on, I was hooked!

So, I started doing more research. I began to learn which oils contribute special properties to the soap. And each time I learned something new, I would break out the soap pot and begin to create! Now, for those of you unfamiliar with how to make soap, you simply cannot make a single bar of soap...it is make in small batches. So what ended up happening was with one fell swoop of the soap stick, I would have 13 bars of soap....and that can add up FAST! Just ask my husband....I slowly began encroaching into his "man cave". So I started to give it away. I gave it to family.....to friends.....to friends of friends....heck, I even gave it to complete strangers! (OK,OK...maybe that last part is a bit of an exaggeration...but you get the point) Then something strange started happening....just when I thought people would start to run when they saw me coming.....THEY started to come to ME...ASKING for more soap! That is when I had what you call my "AH-HA moment" and the rest, is well, history!
