Goat Milk Soap with Pastured Lard, Eucalyptus Mint Essential Oils, Dragonfly Soap

Only 10 left in stock


The herbal scent of Eucalyptus essential oil paired with the spicy fragrance of Peppermint essential oil is a classic, and one of my most popular soap scents.  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 for a custom order and loved it so much I decided to convert my lard soaps to goat milk-lard soaps.  It is really moisturizing, cleans well with no residue, and has a great lather! I also add a little of my homegrown mint to this soap for a bit of exfoliation.  

This soap is available in a variety of options - a plain square bar or 3 different molded designs of a dragonfly.  The dragonfly is available in either the plain white version or with mica-based color accents of green dragonfly.  The oval bar is approximately 5 oz, the rectangle is approximately 4 oz, and the round bar is approximately 3-3.5 oz.

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 will default to a green 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! 

Choose either a plain square bar hand-wrapped in repurposed brown paper, or a rectangular 4 oz bar embossed with a dragonfly, in a windowed kraft brown box.
