Soap, Soap, Soap!






Soaps

I have been really busy making batch after batch of soap these past few weeks.

I am listing here each kind that I make, a brief description, and whether they are in stock or not. There will also be links to the shop so you can buy them there if you so desire. I will constantly edit this post to keep the list current to available soaps.

All Byrd Bath Soaps are made completely from scratch in small batches to ensure the highest quality and attention to detail.

All Bars average a generous 4.5 oz.

Our products contain no detergents, fillers, or lather boosters, no formaldehyde, and no parabens - just naturally-good, skin-loving ingredients.


My soaps may be purchased through my Etsy Shop, My Byrd Nest
I have tried to keep my prices as low as possible. Hand made soaps are not cheap. Due to the quality ingredients and the personal time involved in all the steps along they way, making soap is expenseive. However, I didn't want to make a product I couldn't afford to buy myself. So my prices are slightly below market value. You as my cyber friends get to take advantage of that fact and take part in the savings. The costs for the raw materials does keep going up. I will try my best to keep my prices down.

Here is my current price list:

Single Bars = $3.50 each
10 Bars = $32.50 (that's $3.25 each)
20 Bars = $60.00 (that's $3.00 each)
30 Bars = $82.50 (that's $2.75 each)

When you order a bulk bar listing, you just tell me which of the soaps listed below you would like while quantities last. You can even conact me and get a bulk of one kind if you like. I can also make special listing in the shop for you if you want more than 1 and less than 10.

Soap List:

Almond Scrub
Almond Biscotti Scrub

This soap has a deliciously strong almond scent. It also contains corn meal which is a great exfoliante for hands and feet.

Ingredients: food grade saponified oils of coconut, olive, canola, and soy, naturally occurring glycerin, corn meal, and almond fragrance oil.



Apple
Apple
This smells so wonderful. It reminds one of being in an apple orchard on a crisp fall day picking apples and enjoying the good life. I have searched high and low for just a scent and here it is. I think you will enjoy it too.

Ingredients: food grade saponified oils of coconut, olive, canola, and soy, naturally occurring glycerin, greed oxide for colorant, and apple fragrance oil.


Bella (a Twilight soap)
Bella

Yes this soap is in honor of Miss Bella Swan of the Twilight books. Bella is described as very floral smell, like lavender . . . or freesia. And Edward has noted "It's mouthwatering." This is a fragrance blend created by one of my favorite soap supply companies and I love it. Bella fragrance has notes of rose, iris, violet, and soft musk. Sexy, but also fresh and innocent. If you haven't tried the Twilight series yet, it is a great escape, a very good read.

Ingredients: food grade saponified oils of coconut, olive, canola, and soy, naturally occurring glycerin, ultramarine colorant, and Bella fragrance oil.

Black Cherry
Black Cherry
This is a fun, light, candy scent. If you are into that sort of thing, you will love this soap.

Ingredients: food grade saponified oils of coconut, olive, canola, and soy, naturally occurring glycerin, pink and black pigments, and Black Cherry fragrance oil.


Cantaloupe
Cantalope
Fresh, delicious cantaloupe. This scent is dead on. I love it!

Ingredients: food grade saponified oils of coconut, olive, canola, and soy, naturally occurring glycerin, paprika for color, and Cantaloupe fragrance oil.

Ingredients: food grade saponified oils of coconut, olive, canola, and soy, naturally occurring glycerin, greed oxide for colorant, and coconut and lime fragrance oils.

Coffee/Kitchen Soap
Coffee
If I could eat a soap it would be this one. It smells so good I want to just take a nibble. It smells like coffee caramel goodness. This soap has grounds in it which are abrasive so this is a hand, and not really a body soap. The coffee grounds also have an Oder eliminating ability. This makes it a great kitchen soap to get rid of cooking smells from your hands from onions, garlic and much more.

Ingredients: food grade saponified oils of coconut, olive, canola, and soy, naturally occurring glycerin, freshly ground coffee beans, and Cappuccino Brule fragrance oil.

Country Heather
Country Heather

This soap's scent is a lovely green floral, not to heavy like some Heathers can be. I love it and think you will too!

Ingredients: food grade saponified oils of coconut, olive, canola, and soy, naturally occurring glycerin, oxide and ultramarine colorants, and Country Heather fragrance oil.


Cucumber
Cucumber
This is NOT a Melon blend Cucumber scent. It smells like fresh sliced cucumbers with just a hint of sweetness. NO MELON.

Ingredients: food grade saponified oils of coconut, olive, canola, and soy, naturally occurring glycerin, paprika for color, and Cucumber fragrance oil.

Desert Sage
Desert Sage

This soap is very nostalgic for me. It reminds me of my childhood and playing in the sagebrush in the Utah Desert. It is a blend of sage and cedar. I should call it Green Jacket Soap but only my siblings would get the reference. :o)

Ingredients: food grade saponified oils of coconut, olive, canola, and soy, naturally occurring glycerin, ultramarine and herbs for color, Cedar essential oil and Desert Sage fragrance oil.

Edward
Edward
Yes I couldn't leave dear Edward out. Edward is described in the book as smelling like honey, lilacs and sunshine. The Edward inspired fragrance I chose is fresh, clean, and sexy. They added a bit of vanilla, heliotrope, dry wood, and grapefruit. This is a young and sporty type scent, very masculine. It is a definitely a guy scent BUT one that you wouldn't mind enjoying in the shower ladies.

Ingredients: food grade saponified oils of coconut, olive, canola, and soy, naturally occurring glycerin, body glitter, and Edward fragrance oil.

English Ivy
English Ivy
This soap has a lovely "green" plant smell. Very nice and very refreshing.

Ingredients: food grade saponified oils of coconut, olive, canola, and soy, naturally occurring glycerin, green oxide for color, and English Ivy fragrance oil.


Facial Blend
Facial Blend

This IS my favorite soap. It is the bar I reach for the most. It has been called "Energy" here before. We are listing as a facial bar though because it is very good for your skin. It contains green French clay, lavender, peppermint, tea tree, and patchouli essential oils. These are all anti bacterial and great for your skin. There is also French clay in this soap which is great for oily skin making it a great facial bar.

Ingredients: food grade saponified oils of coconut, olive, canola, and soy, naturally occurring glycerin, green oxide for color, green French clay, lavender, tea tree, peppermint, and patchouli essential oils.

Fudge Berry Brownie
Fudge Berry Brownies
This smells good enough to bite. My kids think it smells like a tootsie pop. This is my own blend of chocolate and berry fragrance oils. Pretty much everyone loves this scent.

Ingredients: food grade saponified oils of coconut, olive, canola, and soy, naturally occurring glycerin, cocoa powder for color, and Chocolate and Blackberry fragrance oil.

Gardener's Soap
Gardeners Blend
This has a bug repelling yet gardener delighting blend of essential oils, including lemon grass, citronella, tea tree, lavender and several more. It also contains corn meal for a mild scrubbing effect.

Ingredients: food grade saponified oils of coconut, olive, canola, and soy, naturally occurring glycerin, cornmeal, a special blend of essential oils.


Georgia Peach
Georgia Peach
This is a very different peach scent. It doesn't smell like candy or soda pop. It has a real green plant kind of smell. I will not be replacing our Peach Nectar scent but just might make it to the permanent line-up

Ingredients: food grade saponified oils of coconut, olive, canola, and soy, naturally occurring glycerin, pink and yellow pigment for color, and Georgia Peach fragrance oil.

Harvest Festival
Harvest Party
Whether it is fall or not this is wonderful homey soap scent. Every time you sniff this soap you will smell something different; apple, citrus, spice and pumpkin notes meld into this fabulous fall blend!

Ingredients: food grade saponified oils of coconut, olive, canola, and soy, naturally occurring glycerin, grated white soap, red and yellow pigment for color, and All Hallows Eve fragrance oil.

Honeysuckle
Honeysuckle
Honeysuckle is another one of my favorite floral fragrances. This one is dead on in my book (or close enough). We have honeysuckle vines in our backyard and my little girl took one whiff of this soap and said "hey that smells like those pretty honeysuckle flowers in the back yard." That was good enough for me.
Why purple?? Long story..... just say I grabbed the wrong bottle of scent so the color is perfect for Huckleberry soap but the scent is perfect for Honeysuckle. Either way it smells divine.

Ingredients: food grade saponified oils of coconut, olive, canola, and soy, naturally occurring glycerin, grated white soap, pink and black pigment for color, and Honeysuckle fragrance oil.

Huckleberry

Huckleberry

At long last, I have found a berry scent that not only smells great BUT also works in cold process soap. Berry scents are just really hard to make soap with but this one works and it smells wonderful. If you are berry fan you will love this soap.

Ingredients: food grade saponified oils of coconut, olive, canola, and soy, naturally occurring glycerin, pink and black pigment for color, and Huckleberry fragrance oil.

Jacob Black



Jake the Snake and Zeek the Freak
Cowboy
Ok unless you grew up anywhere near my dad you won't know these two old cowpokes. When I was a little girl my dad would come home from work, lay down on the living room floor and put an arm out for me and my little brother to rest our heads on. Then he would tell us the most marvelous stories about these two crusty old cowboys. There were so many things he could have done with his time but he chose to spend it telling stories to two little kids. We loved those stories and still do.Why did I name this soap after them?? Because, to me it smells like the Southern desert, tumble weeds, willows at the waterhole, and soft yet rugged scent cowboy cologne.

Ingredients: food grade saponified oils of coconut, olive, canola, and soy, naturally occurring glycerin, dill weed for color, and Pinion Pine and Sage Brush fragrance oil.

Lavender
Lavender

Lemon Zest


Licorice/Anise/Fisherman Soap
Anise 001

Why three names? Because people call this soap by those three names. It is just pure soap with poppy seeds and Anise Essential Oil. Why Fisherman's soap? Because this scent masks human scent and is attractive to fish so fishermen swear by it. As for me it smells like the best, most mouth watering black licorice ever. If licorice is your thing, you will LOVE this soap!

Ingredients: food grade saponified oils of coconut, olive, canola, and soy, naturally occurring glycerin, poppy seeds, and Anise essential oil.

Lilac
Lilac
This soap is very nostalgic for me. It reminds me of my childhood and playing in the lilac bushes in my mother's front yard. The bushes were so large you could play under them with your dolls. This scent is dead on in my opinion. I think you will like it if you are a lilac fan. I have search high and low to find one that was a good match.

Ingredients: food grade saponified oils of coconut, olive, canola, and soy, naturally occurring glycerin, lavender pigment for color, and Lilac fragrance oil.


Lily of the Valley
Lily of the Valley
This scent is almost dead on for Lily of the Valley which happens to be my favorite flower. It is a delicate flower with powerful scent which is amazing. If you are a fan of this flower you will love this soap!

Sweet, tart and refreshing. Isn't that was you expect from a good lemonade? This soap scent delivers just that. I can't get enough of this one. I know I would love it and I do and I know you will too. Spoil yourself silly with a bar just for you.

Ingredients: food grade saponified oils of coconut, olive, canola, and soy, naturally occurring glycerin, dill weed, yellow oxide for color, and Jordan's Mint Lemonade fragrance oil.

Mint Magic

Morning Bliss
Morning Bliss
This is a special batch of soap made with a special bunch of girls at my church. They picked the scent name and the add-ins. The scent is a lovely blend of lemon, cintronella, lavender and cedar. It has such a bright citrus scent with the earthiness of the cedar and the mellowness of the lavender. I think they gave the soap a wonderful smell.

Pan Dulce
Pan de Los Muertos
This soap was inspired by my favorite Mexican pan dulce, Pan de los Muertos or Bread of the dead. This bread has a heavely blend of orange rind and anise seeds and is sometimes topped with a vanilla glaze. The soap version has a wonderfully swirling blend of Anise and orange essential oils and a hint of vanilla fragrance oil. It is a real treat and smells good enough to bite.

Rosemary Mint
Rosemary Mint Soap
This is a unique batch of soap. In making the batch it decided it didn't want to fallow the normal path of soapmaking SO.... I rebatched it (melted it back down and re-poured it.)

Spearmint & Eucalyptus
Apple

This is a fragrance oil NOT and essential oil blend. It has a bright clean smell. Rather masculine. Great for guys.

I have to share a story with you about this scent. My mother is now 80 years old. She grew up in Berkley California during WWII. As a little girl she had a huge Eucalyptus bush in her front yard near the sidewalk. When I made this soap and let her smell it. She said it smelled just like the bush in her front yard. Then she told me delightful stories about her life there in that lovely house in 1940's Berkley. Isn't it interesting what memories scents can bring. I hope some of these soap scents can bring back happy memories for you too. For me it is the Lily of the Valley soap. That was my grandmother's favorite flower and we grew them in our yard and I would pick them with my mother to put on my Grandmonther's grave each spring.
