    Default Handmade soap

    I shared over in Nomads. My wife and I have a soap company. It was her company when we married a few years ago, and I've been helping since. She makes the soap using all-natural materials with no animal products. When possible, she uses essential oils for fragrance. Other fragrances are all natural. She uses olive oil, palm oil, and coconut oil, along with beeswax and lye. The bars last as long as a brand name in the shower and don't get squishy like some. She supplies soap to Teton, NP, and many resorts in the West. If you live in the Phoenix area and use Community Pharmacy, each prescription order comes with a bar of soap. She makes a nice hypoallergenic olive oil soap, a tea tree and eucalyptus bar for skin issues, and many more. My personal favorite is peppermint scrub which is refreshing after a hot day.

    I'll check with Josh about throwing a few bucks to the salon.

    Bill, I'm appreciating your description. I was wrong about glycerine, this is so much more.

    I've been giving the Eucalyptus bar a run for the money. LOVE IT!!!

    Thanks, you both are good people.

    Thanks Josh. Another option for folks with businesses is custom labeling. If someone wants to include soap or put it on their website, she can do the label artwork. All the labels you see on the website are her artwork.

    My wife was back in AZ last week to make another 1,000 bars for new orders from B&Bs, resorts, and National Parks out west. People are getting out and seeing places after a few years of staying home. I appreciate the orders and repeat orders from Salonistas.

    Thank your bride for me. My trailer smells like a Eucalyptus forest. I'm pleasantly surprised how cleanly that soap rinses leaving little to no scent.

    Go man go.
