If you have not tried our oatmeal soap, get a sample. Our oatmeal soap is popular with our customers because it is fresh, full of moisture, smells good but not scented, generous in oatmeal and honey. We use raw rolled oats and raw honey.
For generations Honey and Oatmeal have been used to exfoliate and retain skin moisture. Oatmeal soothes and calms the skin. Both honey and oatmeal contain emollients that keeps in moisture and replenishes dry skin. Oatmeal has also been known to soothe itchy skin. Oatmeal is naturally rich in vitamins C and E. Smells just heavenly.
Honey is rich in minerals and has traces of protein. Honey is 100% pure honey, as made by the honey bees from the flower nectar they gather, transform, and store in honey combs. No ingredients are added by man. Our Honey Soap has a touch of Shea Butter to nourish your skin even further.
Vegetable Glycerin is colorless, odorless, sweet-tasting & syrupy. Vegetable Glycerin has a rich texture and is water soluble. Because it is derived entirely from vegetable oil, it is hypoallergenic and safe for cosmetic purposes. Glycerin absorbs water from the air so it is a valuable moistener in soaps and other skin care products. Example: if you left a bottle of pure glycerin exposed to air in your kitchen, it would take moisture from the air and eventually, it would become 80 percent glycerin and 20 percent water. For this reason soaps rich in glycerin will dissolve quicker in water than other soaps. Glycerin occurs naturally during soap making. Some commercial soaps remove the glycerin and use it in creams, lotions and other cosmetics. Our oatmeal soap is moist and fresh with each batch.

Honey is 80% natural sugars and 20% water.
Honey has been used as a topical dressing for wounds since microbes cannot live in it. It also produces hydrogen peroxide.
Honey has been used to embalm bodies such as that of Alexander the Great.
Fermented honey, known as Mead, is the most ancient fermented beverage.
The term “honey moon” originated with the Norse practice of consuming large quantities of Mead during the first month of a marriage.
Honeybees are the only insects that produce food for humans.
Some uses for glycerin include: conserving preserved fruit, as a base for lotions, to prevent freezing in hydraulic jacks, to lubricate molds, in some printing inks, in cake and candy making, and (because it has an antiseptic quality) sometimes to preserve scientific specimens in jars in your high school biology lab. Glycerin is a humectant, meaning it attracts moisture to your skin. Glycerin is a natural by-product of the soap making process and while commercial manufacturers remove the glycerin for use in their more profitable lotions and creams, handcrafted soap retains glycerin in each and every bar.
Oats are highly nutritious and filled with cholesterol-fighting soluble fiber. They also have a pleasant, nutty flavor. Most of us are familiar with rolled oats, which are used as a hot breakfast cereal and cookie ingredient.
Types of Oatmeal
Rolled oats: These are oat groats that are steamed, rolled, and flaked so that they cook quickly. They’re often cooked as a breakfast cereal, added raw to granola or muesli mixes, or used to make oatmeal cookies. Regular rolled oats take about five minutes to cook. If you’re in a hurry, try quick oats or instant oats. These have thinner flakes, so they cook faster.
Instant oatmeal: These are very thin, precooked oats that need only be mixed with a hot liquid. They usually have flavorings and salt added. They’re convenient, but not as chewy and flavorful as slower-cooking oats.
Oat groats Oat groats are minimally processed–only the outer hull is removed. They’re very nutritious, but they’re chewy and need to be soaked and cooked a long time.
Quick oats These are thin flakes of oatmeal that cook up in about three or four minutes. They’re a good choice for oatmeal cookies.
Steel-cut oats: These are groats that have been chopped into small pieces. They’re chewier than rolled oats. Often preferred for hot oatmeal cereals and muesli.
