Castile soap is probably as close to the type your Grandma made without using animal fat. It is a great very firm bar. Good for bathing or homemade laundry detergent (you have to grate it for the laundry), It can also be grated and dissolve in distilled water to use as shampoo. Vegetable wash, Dish detergent (grate into dish water or dissolve it in distilled water). Pretty much an all around soap. It has even worked well for pretreating stains on clothing. Just do a test area before using on a large area on fabric.
This batch is not the most perfectly shaped bar I've ever made and does have a little discoloration in spots but still has a wonderful lather and cleans just the same. These bars are approx 3 ounces in weight and are $3.00 each. This listing is for single bar of soap (two are pictured). I have 8 bars of this soap in stock. Do not let soap remain in direct stream of water and let soap dry thoroughly - avoids the ick factor and the bar of soap will last longer.
-Organic Olive Oil - contains vitamins E and A
-Organic Palm Oil - will add hardness to your bar and promote a stable/creamy lather
-Organic Coconut oil - contains Vitamin-E and Vitamin K and minerals such as Iron.
-Distilled Water - as close to organic as we can get :-)
-Sodium Hydroxide is an all-natural product made from wood ash and contains no manmade chemicals. Combined with salt it will create a natural chemical reaction with the oils to form a hard surface hence you get soap. With time the distilled water will evaporate (or curing as it is called in the soap makers world) and the lye and oils will evolve into a wonderful, dense and gentle bar of soap. This is why it takes at least 4 weeks for cold process soap to cure but definitely worth the wait.
All of our soaps are handcrafted from scratch and follow the tried and true old-fashioned cold process method. Why a cold process soap? Cold process helps better preserve the benefits of the oils used in our soap as the oils are only heated up to a low temperature. They are cured for a minimum of 4 weeks. A heat-processed soap may be faster but the temperature used to process the soap will start breaking down the benefits of the oils and create a more porous bar of soap that will dissolve faster. Why spend good money on soap that dissolves faster and does not have the full benefits of the oils that it could have?

To get the best burn time on any candle burn no longer than 3-4 hours.
Light the wick with a spagetti stick (yes it's ok to light the stick with a lighter or match). This avoids that black ring from the petro in the lighter or sout from the wooden match. Plus you can reach deep into those tall candle jars.
Do not leave burning candles unattended. Do not leave burning candles or the glass containers within a childs or pets reach.
Do not use the lid to estinguish the flame.
As with all things in life some people may find a allergic reaction to an ingreadient in the candles, lotions, soaps and lip balm. I do take care in chosing the ingredients that I use and post them in product information. The only exception is the votives that have botanicals added at the manufacturers to give a firmness of the product. If you have any allergies to botanicals please use this product with care. So far no one has had a reaction but if you do you do have an allergic reaction to any products (mine or someone elses) stop using the product and seek medical attention. I, nor this business, are responsible for any costs accrued by you.
