Soap - Boondocks
Made with ground oats, local honey and fresh raw milk from Honey, Carly's beautiful jersey cow. Scented with vanilla and lavender essential oils, this is one very smooth bar of soap!
This soap is not vegan, but the milk collected from the cow is done in an ethical manner with her interests in mind.
A little bit about Honey, Carly's friend and milk provider:
"Honey was born July 25, 2013 and I adopted her at a few days old. I spent the next few months bottle feeding and loving her to bits. She has the loveliest sweet nature, as her name implies! When her calves are born, they get to stay with her until she decides it is time to wean. I have a single, petrol powered milk pump and usually take a few litres from her every 3-4 days so there is still plenty for her calf to grow big and strong. She comes running when I call, and stands happily without restraints to be milked, fed and brushed down."
Each soap is approximately 170g, large enough to be cut into 2 perfect hand-size pieces. They are all handmade in small batches, and hand cut, so each bar will vary slightly in size, shape and appearance to the photo, but all are full of the same skin loving ingredients!
Ingredients: Rain water, sodium hydroxide, olive oil, coconut oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, avocado oil, ricebran oil, castor oil, milk, honey, ground oats, cinnamon, vanilla and lavender essential oil.
TAKING CARE OF YOUR HANDMADE SOAP: handmade soap needs a little more care than its chemical-laden counterparts. As it is full of all the natural oils, it needs to be well drained when using. The less of the soap touching a flat, wet surface – the better, so choose a good soap dish.
When you are storing your soap (before using), put somewhere dry. Don’t store in a damp bathroom. Many of my customers enjoy storing their soap in their clothes draws, using them to infuse their lovely scents into their clothes. Or cut a slice off and hang in a muslin bag in your car, the scent will last for ages and you will always have an emergency bar of soap if needed on the road!
