$4.00

This handmade soap has a rich and exotic, feminine and floral scent with my own blend of Yling Ylang flower, Bulgarian Lavender (a more floral variety) and Balsam de Peru (vanilla-like fragrance) essential oils.  Choose from either a molded bar of a woman curled up asleep, in a windowed kraft brown box, or a simple square bar wrapped in hand-cut brown paper, both labelled with complete ingredients (just lard, coconut oil, lye, water, and essential oils!) (Please check out my About Handmade Soap page if you're hesitant when you see the word “lye”, and read about Our Handcrafting Process to see what makes our soap special.

Lard makes a beautiful white soap, very hard and long-lasting, with good cleaning power, while being very gentle and soothing on skin. I have gotten great reviews, both in person and through my Etsy shop, about how wonderful this soap is for skin - gentle, moisturizing, cleansing, and no residue! Customers say:

  • "Forget buying' Lush' soaps and shampoo bars. These products are better! I always wanted to try lard soap. I loved the shop's story and who wouldn't love the price? I put my money on THIS lard soap and found out that it is THE BEST soap I have ever tried! It has left my skin soft and silky. I bought unscented and it smells so ...clean! Really! The lather is wonderful. Who knew?"
  • "Ok listen. I have been on a mad search for the best tallow soap for like, months. I wanted tallow because I find veg oil soaps to leave that sticky film I can’t stand. I found one other lard soap that doesn’t leave a film, but I was still missing something. Then I found this. It’s PERFECT. No weird residue. No sticky. Soap has a great feel. And the best part? It LATHERS. It’s SO GREAT. Seriously, it’s been a long time coming and I’m so happy. "

If you're interested in using handmade lard soap, but are more familiar with liquid soaps, check out my new liquid Classic Lard soap: Classic Lard Liquid Soap for Squirt-Pump Dispenser or Classic Lard Liquid Soap for Foaming Dispenser

And if you know you love this soap, you can stock up or try more scents with the Classic Lard 6-pack: 6 Scented Square Bars6 Scented "Fancy" Molded Bars, or 6 Unscented Bars.

Or, if you know that even though real soap is super-moisturizing, you still like to have a little hand balm or body butter for when you need it, consider getting some Grass-fed Tallow Balm - it's made with tallow from our own Scottish Highland cattle, and is available in 25 different fragrances, custom fragrance blending, or unscented. 

Other soap companies are just that – SOAP companies – but we are a small, family homestead that produces handmade soap as one facet of our diverse, small-scale farm so that we can both raise our 3 home-schooled boys and teach them how to love and care for the world around them through animals, gardens, and the joy, satisfaction, and confidence that comes from knowledge and capability. If you're interested in finding out more about our homestead, stop by our blog and photo galleries here, or take a peek at our Instagram page, or pop over to our Facebook page. Thanks for checking out our products, and supporting small farms and handcrafter artisans!
