Lard & Lye Soap


Arrrr! This be made from the fat of animals and the stuff of drain cleaner! 
Be ye brave enough ye Scallywags!

Available in Lavender, Sandalwood and Unscented
Well actually, the soap our great-grandmothers made (and they were plenty brave), came by mixing tallow and a tea made from the ashes of their wood stove. It was magic back then, but a matter of simple chemistry today. Mix the right quantities of a fatty acid with a base, like sodium hydroxide, and tada; soap!

Somewhere, this simple craft became lost, and we’ve become used to our pressed and extruded concoctions of industry. While these products are consistent and reliable, it cannot compare to the luxurious feel of a good hand crafted soap.

I think you’ll enjoy my soap quite a bit. It won’t last as long as commercial soaps, because it’s not pressed, and it may be a little “rustic” looking, but it will provide you with a wonderfully smooth and silky lather that is good for both shower and shave, then rinse clean.


$5.00 / Bar

Castile Soap


Avast ye matey! Those Spaniards make a fine soap, 
 if yer into that sort of thing!


Available in Sandalwood and Unscented


By the 16th or so century, seems the English had a little soap-envy. The soaps sailors brought from around the Mediterranean were made from plant oils, instead of tallows. These hard white bars were a hit compared with the local stuff that may have had stray bits of last months dinner mixed in.

While it is said that Castile soap originated from Spain, actually it was the English that first coined the name. Real Castilian soaps were a mix of olive and laurel oils. Laurel was hard to come by in England, so the English soap makers used just olive oil and named it after the Castile region in Spain (good marketing I suspect).

This Castile soap is made from 100% pure olive oil. You’ll find that it doesn’t lather or suds like other soaps, and produces more of a cream. It cleans well, and those with sensitive skin will appreciate how well it moisturizes.
