Handcrafted lard and lye soap with organically grown purple shiso (also known as purple perilla or akajiso, shiso, shi
so, zi su), lemongrass and palmarosa essential oils and tussah silk .
These are lard and lye traditional style soaps made with
purple shiso grown here in Maiden NC. Perilla is renowned in several
cultures ( especially in Japan) for its medicinal benefits, and is used
in anti aging and
wrinkle reducing products. This soap is lightly fragranced with
100% pure essential oils of lemongrass and palmarosa, both known for
their natural skin benefiting properties.This soap has replaced my plain purple shiso soap, which is now no longer availableWe use only distilled
water, food grade lard, lye, purple shiso essential oils and tussah silk to make these soaps. No
other ingredients were used in the manufacture of this soap. This soap
was made in a wooden mold and not silicone or latex molds.
We do not use any alcohols, colorants, chemical fragrances, whiteners ( such as
titanium dioxide) or hardeners in any of our products. All soaps are
hand made from scratch using the cold process soap making method and are not made from "melt and pour" soap bases.Due
to the natural curing process, and lighting while the pictures were
taken, the colors of the soaps shown may differ slightly from the
photographs shown.The combined bar weight is shown in the image
above. Each bar weighs at least 4.0 ounces. Most bars are between 4.0
and 6.0 ounces. Some may weigh over 6 ounces. Bar weight varies as these
are hand made and hand cut.
