Soap and Candle Sale Today!

The sale has now ended.  The next one will be early December - hope to see you all then.  I sincerely thank everyone for their purchases and for supporting Emma! 

If you missed the special reason I'm doing this, click here.

There are 15 different soaps to choose from this time - goat milk so
Linkap, all vegetable oil soap, and my newest - shea butter soap!

If you're new to my soap, allow me to tell you a little about them (if not feel free to scroll down and see the soap).

First of all, they are
100% natural. That is why you will find most of the scents to be citrusy, herbal, spicy, or earthy, as I exclusively use all natural essential oils to fragrance the soap. If the soap has a color or a texture, you can be assured that I used only what God has made to accomplish that. :-)

In all the soaps, I use a combination of quality pure base oils (olive, coconut, and palm) to promote moisture and good lathering. The three types I make are:

All-vegetable oil soap This soap contains olive oil, coconut oil, and palm oil, and has distilled water as its liquid. This is the hardest bar, making it long lasting.
Good for all skin types.


Goat milk soap All-vegetable oil soap recipe, substituting goat milk for the distilled water. Goat milk adds alpha-hydroxy acids, vitamins, and minerals to the soap, as well as increasing the moisture (goat milk soaps are a bit softer as a result).
Good for all skin types, particularly good for dry or sensitive ones.
 


Shea butter soap All-vegetable oil soap recipe, with the addition of 100% pure unrefined shea butter, which makes this soap ultra emollient and luxurious. This is a very premium soap, super-fatted 5% with the addition of the shea butter. Shea butter can also aid in the relief of acne, eczema and other skin problems as it moisturizes without clogging pores.
Good for all skin types, particularly good for dry or sensitive ones.


I make my soap by the cold process method in small batches, I cut it by hand, and I cure it for at l
east 4 weeks to ensure hardness. These are big bars - at least 4 1/2 ounces each (Ivory soap bars are about 3 ounces). You should know that homemade soap is softer than commercial soap, so be sure to let your bar drain and air dry after each use (don't let it sit in a sudsy puddle). You will find that my soap is gentle and you can definitely feel good about using it on your skin. When you get away from putting detergents and chemicals on your skin, and use an all natural approach, you will feel the difference!

DELIVERY: If you are close by, I can arrange to get the soap to you. If you are not , I can mail them to you. I can send up to 4 soaps anywhere in the U.S. for $5.35 using the small flat rate priority box; larger orders will most likely fit in the medium flat rate box for $11.35. I accept paypal (use harasick@ca.rr.com), cash, or personal checks (checks only if I know you personally, please).

I believe I have ordered soaps from each of your soap sales, I believe and I thought I was out months ago, until I found one in the linen closet in the bathroom. I could not have been more excited and really dread the idea of not using your soaps again. Do you have any plans to make more soaps in the future? Hope you're doing well!
