Fat Ash Sweet Basil-Lime Bar Soap
Our sweet basil-lime bar soap is scented with 100% essential oils. Two aromatic, therapeutic oils combine to create an intoxicating scent.
Our soap is NOT perfect. Every batch is hand-poured. Every bar is hand-cut. You will find tiny specks in your bar. We filter our fats with cheesecloth just like they did in the old days. Our wood molds are covered with wool blankets after they are poured to ensure a slow cooling process. This soap is made from time-tested methods and old-fashioned ingredients. We have several years of experience producing soap with our own homemade filtered hardwood ash lye. We wanted to know exactly how soap was crafted for hundreds of years. We chose to use modern food grade lye which is far superior and available in great quantities for our finished product. The recipe includes lard for intense conditioning, beef tallow for a firm, long-lasting bar and coconut oil for rich lather. Instead of purchasing commercial lard and tallow from big producers, we chose to render our own from small, local farms. Why do we go to this extent? Because small farms value their livestock and treat them humanely. We are soap-maker’s with a conscience. The supply is limited and there may be times when we are unable to meet demand. A great product is worth waiting for and we promise not to stray from our core values.
+ Our bars are country-sized, easy to handle as is or can be cut into 2-3 smaller bars.
+ You will not find any dyes or other unnecessary ingredients in our soaps.
+ Every batch of bar soap is handmade, hand-cut and packaged individually.
+ We like to keep things simple and pure.
