We Have Soap!

We’ve been busy the past few days, adding 57 bars to our inventory. We’re making the soaps we’re out of, such as Manly, Rose, and Green Goat. And we’ll keep going, making Pine Tar, Fir Needle, Charcoal Thieves, and others.

I’ve also spent a lot of time on this website, updating photos and descriptions, and ensuring measurements and weights are correct. It’s amazing how much time it takes to keep a website current. In fact, it takes more time than it takes to make soap, especially when I go so long between times that I have to relearn as I go.

One of the soaps we made yesterday, Rose, is an idea she came up with: Making a purely white traditionally shaped bar, with a small rose-shaped bar of soap attached to the face. Something like this, only with a red rose.

Mixing White For Rose Soap

It’s difficult to get a truly white bar of soap when olive oil is the dominant ingredient because olive oil is so dark green. So the bars tend more toward the creamy side than pure white, but the effect is the same.

It feels good to be making soap again!
