lavender handmade soap, handmade from scratch soap, cold process, relax, calm, peace, kindness, barsoap, donation, essential oil soap by LittleBearBigBear
I made many batches of soaps in my life and each batch always gives me a thrill. However, this batch is very, very special to me!
The English lavender was given to me from a very special person across the pond – Kathleen, and I steeped them in pure olive oil for about 3 months. The scent of this lavender is intoxicating!
Then, the English lavender with pure olive oil was combined with cocoa butter that my dearest friend Bethany brought home from Belize during her study trip there.
To top it off, I put some dried lavender that I picked from my garden this summer. So much love and kindness went into these bars, please grab them while they are in stock.
All profits of these bars will be donated to our local animal shelter.

WHY COLD PROCESSED: Most of today's soaps have natural glycerin removed. This glycerin is then used to make lotions and marketed as a necessity after skin is stripped of its natural oils. Cold process soaps maintain their glycerin content because the saponification process produces glycerin and provides other natural oils for the skin. You cleanse, while nurturing.
HOW IT'S MADE: Cold Processed soaps are made using an old fashioned method that produces natural and gentle soap. Oils, butters, and lye are combined to create something new: soap! We make all of our soaps with at least 8% superfat content. This means that 8% or more of the luxurious oils and butters that we add are left in the soap to nourish your skin and 0% of lye. The end result is a creamy lather, beautiful bubbles, and a pure soap that will clean your skin without stripping away your skin natural oil.
