Activated Charcoal Soap


Patchouli Spearmint Goat Milk Soap

Activated Charcoal is messy by itself.  The fine powder tends to float up in the air and coat things it lands on (if one is not careful).  It’s tough, I’ll give it that.  It makes a BEAUTIFUL soap, however, and for that I can forgive it.  Our Patchouli Spearmint soap not only smells good, it contains this activated charcoal that has been obtained from renewable sources and it swirls and eddies in the soap.  Magically, the charcoal in the soap does not stain and the lather is white.  Why?  I have no idea.  Have you ever tried a soap containing activated charcoal?  It’s feels quite wonderful on the skin and additionally, you may feel as if the world is going to change, or not.  IF I can brave the charcoal, I may add it to another soap soon.

Orchid Soap

Years ago, I bought some orchid extract to use in a soap recipe.  I never used it.  I tend to do that (unfortunately) but lately, I’m trying not to buy anything I do not need since it’s so wasteful.  I actually have an orchid that I decided I could keep in a semi sunny spot in my living room.  The sun is very filtered there and it stays cool.  I really don’t know anything about orchids, other than my own, and other plants I tend to over love until they just die.  This one has stayed around and I feel somewhat proud of that!  It’s about to bloom as you can see in the picture.  So, of course I started to think about orchid soap and this led to orchid extract.  I forgot what it was supposed to do, so I looked it up.  It makes sense – it’s an exotic flower and it can beautify the skin.  Makes perfect sense.  I plan on making some orchid soap as soon as I can!  Yeah, orchid soap!

Such an interesting word, Lagniappe.  Derived from several cultures but originating in its current form from the Louisiana French, this word means “a little extra something”.  Applying that, we are offering our bestselling Oatmeal, Milk and Honey goat milk soap in a larger size so it can be loved even more.  Better than that, the price is only a bit more for the extra amount.  vintagelady

Olive Oil, Shea Butter, and Goat Milk!

Quick, what could be better than a soap made with Olive Oil, Shea Butter, and Goat Milk (fresh, raw, Nubian)? Nothing!  Just up today, the original Oakmoss soap for men with the same fragrance oil you remember, but in a soap formulation that is over the top in performance.  The fragrance oil is costly and so the soap is a bit more, but oh so worth it!
