Does anyone have a good recipe for pine tar soap? Could you make it with goat's milk? Why do people use pine tar soap? People keep asking me for it and I have no clue. 

 

Thanks

Lisa

We used to use Wrights coal tar soap when I was a kiddie it was considered to be a natural antiseptic from what I can remember. It had a strong smell quite pungent so you could always tell what kids used it . I quite like the smell although it isn't a pretty lady scent. I will have to look in the Chemist shop now to see if they still sell it, if they do I will get a bar for old times sake !!!!  I was wondering if pine tar soap is similar.

Years ago when I had a salon, I had a client that had seborreah, we tried everything to help her and then I asked her to bring in a pine tar shampoo, which worked better than anything we had tried, it didnt cure the problem, but it did help control it. The pine tar does have an odor, but by the time she came out from under the dryer, it really wasnt really noticable.

Hello morningstar, if you cant find pine tar soap in your area, there are many places that it can be ordered on the web.

I haven't made it yet, but I did get the pine tar last fall to try (found it at the farm store in the horse section for hooves). You can use it any of your favorite recipes, but plug it into your soap calc to get the correct lye numbers.  It traces fast…everything I've read says not to use the stick blender, it'll trace in a few minutes just by stirring.

Here is some info I have bookmarked for hints/tips when working with pine tar
