Charcoal Lard Soap and Shampoo Bar

I make my soap and shampoo Bar with as many local ingredients as I can and only use other oils or ingredients if they add value to the finished soap and therefore create a benefit for our skin.

My lard is from Snug Valley Farm, which is located in East Hardwick, Vermont USA. Snug Valley is just a few miles down the road from my homestead. They pasture raise their pigs and I render the lard. Most of the herbs, flowers, or fruits are grown and put up by me throughout the summer to be used year round.

Ingredients: Snug Valley Farm Pasture Raised Lard, Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Organic Coconut Oil, Castor Oil, Lye**, and Charcoal

All Bars weigh 3.5 - 4 oz

*Homestead Grown or Foraged, **Non remains in finished soap

I homestead at the edge of a swamp in rural Vermont. I am passionate about growing a lot of my own food and about rendering bear fat. Bears are hunted up here and most folks do not want or use the fat. I rescue it from being throw away and carefully render it into lovely and useful bear grease.

I also infuse the bear grease with flowers and herbs that I grow and preserve. I use those infused jars of bear grease to make salves. I also make pasture raised herbal soaps, flower jellies, and herbal tea blends. My gardens are no till and any ingredients I am unable to grow I forage, buy from local farms, and/or source organically.

I am a potter and sell pots when I have time to get into the studio.

I generally ship out on Wednesdays and sometimes on Saturday. Please message me if you have any questions!
