This past holiday season I had the opportunity to exhibit at, “Cut the Craft,” in Manayunk. It was there that I met C. and her husband who asked me if I would be interested in making a custom soap for them. They had been purchasing quantities of soap they called, “minted lime,” from another soap maker. That person stopped making soap for whatever reason and they were missing their favorite soap. I took on the challenge and am so pleased with the results that, “mint + lime,” is now going to be a part of the regular hand + body line-up.
Next up, “Fisherman,” the latest addition to the Identity soaps. Made with anise and lime essential oils, and cornmeal. Fisherman’s soap is an old classic in the soapmaking world – fishermen would wash with anise to hide their human scent from fish for a better catch. Some fisherman soaps were also used to get rid of the fish smell after the fact. Either way, we love how refreshing this soap smells and it’s now a part of the team.
All-natural soap always takes about a month to cure so these soaps won’t be available till mid March.
