Sassafras Farm Signature Soap

Jul
27


I think this should be my signature soap! This soap is made from sassafras tea, from sassafras roots harvested on my farm. I also added pine resin (from my farm) and honey (someday, I’ll have my own honey, but the honey used in this soap is from a local farm–Adam’s farm). The color is all natural–sassafras tea is red, but the soap turned out a lovely purplish color.


I made four pounds yesterday and will be making more! This soap is for sale. If you’re interested, contact me at CITRcontact@yahoo.com. The soap is $5/bar, and shipping is $3 for 1 or 2 bars, and $5 for three or four bars.

If you want to make the soap for yourself, I’ll be posting more about how I made this soap next week.

    Wow that is neat soap. Looks like your soap-making skill will be well honed for tommorrow. Can’t wait… except for that getting up really early to milk all the goats before we leave part :-)

    Your soap looks awesome. Will you have it (and any other soaps) for sale at the retreat?

    The soap looks pretty. I’m curious what the purpose is of the different ingredients- fragrance?

    That soap is beautiful! And root beer is the best scent…like summertime! As soon as I can I am going to order some from you…will you be making it regularly? I hope, cause once this gets around here, I’ll have to get more I am sure!

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
