A unique, striking blend of herbal lavender and earthy patchouli essential oils, with a touch of the unmistakable licorice-scent of anise oil - this is one of my favorites, and a frequent comment upon smelling this is “Oooh, I never liked patchouli before, but this!  I love this!”  This scent is great for men or women, it’s a little spicy, a little dark, and a little sweet. 

This recipe is made with my own hand-milked goat milk, local lard from a friend's sustainable small farm that I render myself, and a little coconut oil and of course lye - that's it! (Check out my FAQ section at the bottom of the page for why there is lye in soap).  I love this soap, in fact I used to make this as a regular, non-goat milk soap, but then made a batch with goat milk for a custom order and loved it so much I decided to convert my lard soaps to goat milk-lard soaps.  It is nicely moisturizing, cleans really well with no residue, and has a great lather! 

This bar is available in either a molded square bar etched with a beautiful Tree of Life, or 3 different sleek cat poses, all approximately 3-4 oz, or a plain square bar between 4 & 5 oz.  The molded bars come in a brown windowed paperboard box, and the plain square bar comes hand-wrapped in brown paper. 

I also make this in a 2 oz square bar with a dragonfly on it, a great size for trying out the fragrance, travel, or gifting, and I offer optional hand-painted color on the dragonfly. This is a colored mica powder that I paint on the surface so it will wash off immediately, but it adds a gorgeous pop of color that is a little extra something for that special gift.  I personally think of this scent as a dark purple color, so I will use a deep grape shade, although I have several colors so just message me if you'd like a different shade. This bar is packaged in a hand-folded brown paper origami box with a matching lid.

I handmake all my soap in small batches, 6 to 36 bars at a time.  If you have used a good handmade soap before, you know that it is a completely different creature than commercial soap, which can be so drying!  When soap is made by hand, the chemical reaction of oils with a lye solution forms the substances soap and glycerin.  A typical bar of handmade soap is roughly 1/3 glycerin!  This is a humectant, meaning it pulls water from the air - when on your skin, it literally moisturizes your skin by attracting water to it.  In commercial soaps, the glycerin is distilled and removed, and later sold back to you in a lotion, but in the "real thing", it is all one package.  I used to use lotions and moisturizers a lot, especially in the winter, but I virtually never use them anymore, other than some of my tallow body balm on my hands occasionally, and my lip balm or lip blush all year-round!
