Libby & Lavender Hot Process Pumpkin Soap - made with real pumpkin puree!
The classic combination of pumpkin & lavender, with a swirl of blackstrap molasses
Sweet & simple, this was a spur-of-the-moment project one afternoon as I contemplated the lovely but bittersweet transition from summer to autumn... Lightly scented with lavender essential oil, Libby & Lavender is a gentle bar fortified with organic pumpkin puree & a generous swirl of molasses. The result is lovely, creamy lather & a quiet, toasty, sweet, herby scent. I think you'll agree that for something so simple, it's pretty special...
This listing is for one (1) enormous 5-ounce bar of hot process soap, made from scratch by me in my own workshop. If you find glycerin soaps a bit too drying, this is the bar for you. I've spent several months developing a coconut- & shea-free, vegan formula that lathers beautifully & is packed with nourishing vegetable oils & butters. I make my hot process soap in small batches, & allow each batch to cure for 3 weeks to ensure a firm, mild bar. Each hand-cut bar measures 3x3x1 inches, & weighs approximately 5 ounces.
As always, your soap will arrive hand-wrapped, with all ingredients clearly labeled for your peace of mind:
Water, Olive Oil, Organic & Sustainable Palm Oil, Sodium Hydroxide (saponifying agent), Mango Seed Butter, Castor Oil, Organic Palm Kernel Oil, Cucurbita Pepo (Pumpkin) Fruit, Avocado Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Saccharum Officinarum (Molasses), Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender)
Since I work in small batches, you may notice slight variations in color from bar to bar. Hot process soap has a marbled, natural appearance. Streaks, swirls & blobs are all part of the charm, & in no way affect the quality of your soap :)
