Giveaway… Ellie’s Handmade Soap.

September 22, 2011
Today I am sharing a love of mine… Ellies Handmade Soap.  I am such a fan of Ellie’s soaps and in particular, her scents.  I keep them on my kitchen sink, in a vintage porcelain dish.  The sample set has a scent for every season, which I LOVE.  You may not know ellie (or maybe you do). She was a participant in my Parade of Homes in May.  Here is her home.




F R E S H   F R O M   N A T U R E
100% natural, made-from-scratch olive oils soaps

Ellie makes each batch of soap by hand, stirring together all of the ingredients in a big stainless steel pot.The fresh soap mixture is poured into one large wooden mold to set up overnight. The next day, she use a clever handmade wire cutter to cut the entire batch of soap at once into thick, chunky bars with clean cut edges that are fairly uniform in size. Each bar weighs approximately 4 oz each, but because it’s still a very hands-on process the weight of individual bars may vary slightly. That’s part of the charm of an authentically handcrafted bar of soap! (Sample soaps are smaller).

The science of Saponification
From raw, natural ingredients to a perfectly crafted bar of soap, take a peek behind the scenes at my soapmaking kitchen to learn about the art and science behind soapmaking right here.
