After making our soap base (either Honey base, olive oil base, or goat milk base,) we let it hang out and cure for 30-60 days. At that time, we shave it down, melt it, and add essential oils and or fragrance as well as color. This process of letting the soap sit and cure, then shaving it and melting it down to add the good smelly stuff, is called "milling" the soap. This creates a better bar of soap and allows it to last longer, smell better, and look prettier.
Instead of pouring our soap into a loaf and cutting it, we use groovy old-fashioned jello/cake tins to mould the majority of our signature soap. For our Honey soap bars, we tend to use cool moulds with plant and seed images, and even better, we have a really fun round bar that we call a "Jelly Roll," that takes quite a bit of work, but makes your soap use fun!

When a fragrance allows, we use essential oils, natural oils, and when essential oils are too unstable to hold up in our quality products, we use the highest quality naturally derived fragrance to give you the smell you desire time and time again.
Our colors are often from plants, however, to achieve some of our brighter colors, we use non-comedogenic "Lake" colors that are safely designed to be in cosmetics and body care products.
