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 several 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...
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!
