100% natural olive oils soaps
I make each batch of soap by hand, stirring together all of the ingredients in a big stainless steel pot until the soap mixture gets nice and thick. The warm fresh soap is then poured into a large wooden mold to set up overnight. The next day, I unmold the block of soap and use a special wire cutting box to cut the entire batch into individual bars.
Freshly made soap is still quite soft, and needs to cure for several weeks to create a hard, long-lasting bar. After a batch of soap is cut, I line up the bars on wooden trays and set them aside on my curing shelves for about 4 weeks. After its fully cured, each beautiful bar of soap is wrapped (by hand!) in oatmeal-colored tissue paper and a simple kraft paper label.

Hand-cut bars in 2 sizes
Full-Size Soaps: chunky, full-size soap cubes weigh 4 oz or more. They measure about 2 1/2" long, 2" wide, and almost 1 1/2" thick. Perfect hand-held size for everyday use.
Soap Favors: thin guest-sized soap favors weigh about 1.2 oz each. They measure about 2 1/2" long, 2" wide, and a good 3/8" thick. Perfect for traveling, guest soaps, or giving as favors at weddings, showers, and parties.
All bars of soap are fairly uniform in size, but because it's still a very hands-on process, the weight of individual bars may vary ever so slightly. That's part of the charm of an authentically handcrafted bar of soap!
