Bath & Body Products
Our soaps and body products are all made in our farm kitchen, using high quality oils, herbs and fragrances. No "melt & Pour" or base stock is used in our products.  Everything is made from scratch, just like grandma used to do.  The only difference is that we use a stick blender to shorten the stirring time.
We make products to suit a variety of customers.  Most of our products are all natural using herbs to color and essential oils for fragrance.  However some items do have high end fragrance oils and FDA approved colorants.  We do make products without fragrance or color for those with sensitive skin.
About Lye!
I have heard some vendors tout that their soaps do not contain lye.  All true soaps are made by combining a lye and water mixture with oils.  When thoroughly mixed, called trace, the lye and oils literally combust....heating up to a gel phase.  This is known as saponification.  During this process the lye burns away and the residue left behind is soap.  What is on the market today may not be soap, but a chemical mixture that can potentially harm the skin.  
Our soap products are superfatted by 5% to ensure that all lye is burned away.  This means that we add 5% more oils than lye so that the remaining soap has a higher concentration of conditioning oils.
There are two processes we use for soap making.  Cold process soaps are stirred to trace (thickened) and then poured into molds, insulated and allowed to go through the gel phase.  This needs to cure 6 weeks before we put this in the inventory.  Hot process soap is cooked at 200 degrees until saponification occurs.  After cooling fragrance is added prior to putting the soap in the mold.  This soap can be used immediately since the lye has been cooked away.  Both methods produce an excellent bar of soap. We allow hot process soaps to cure for 2 weeks to harden the bar.
Lotions and creams are also made with high quality oils.  Both are concentrated and last a long time.  Our products can be used "face to feet" .
