Beautiful handmade soaps

If you pass through the bustling market town of Macroom on a

Tuesday, perhaps on your way to Cork or Killarney, you will see us

at our market stall! We make our natural soap by hand in our kitchen just up the road, and sell it locally at markets and craft fairs.

 

We always wanted to try our hand at making real, natural soap,

and in 2006 we proudly produced our first bars made from coconut,

olive and sunflower oil, and scented only with pure essential oils which are

distilled from flowers, herbs and trees.

 

And (as if we needed an excuse to create a beautiful garden) we harvest petals

from the sea of gold and orange calendula flowers, and rosemary leaves from

our own fragrant bushes, and nutritious nettles from our wildlife patch . . . . .

all used in our various soaps. Lovely!

Handmade Soap - From an Irish Country Kitchen

Our handmade soap is made at our home in Macroom Co. Cork. We don't sell our soap through shops and prefer the small scale, "small is beautiful" approach to life! We've being making a living selling our handmade soap through local farmers' markets and craft fairs for the last eight years.

 

Our Kitchen is a hive of industry on soap making days . . . coconut, olive and sunflower oils are carefully weighed out, the lye solution mixed, the essential oils blended, and the moulds prepared. Soap making is a real labour of love and something of an art form too!.

 

Whilst stirring our natural soap in a huge pan we can look out of the window across the garden at the flowers and herbs that we use in our handmade soap, as well as the comings and goings of country life . . . cows, horses, cats and crows.

 

When it's time to pour our handmade soap we gently stir in the essential oils, flowers and herbs and then into the mould it goes. After a few days the soap is wrapped in paper and left to cure like a cheese. A number of weeks later it is finally ready to cut into bars. From there it travels with us to the farmers markets and craft fairs of beautiful County Cork . . . and beyond!!
