Bulk soap is a batch of soap consisting of 8 bars. The batch is made after you place your order and then left to cure for about 4 weeks. When ready, they are packed in a bag and labelled. They are not individually wrapped as the individual bars are sold. A gift box is a nice alternative if you would like to give this as a gift. You will be contacted when your soap is ready.
Though there are some variations, my soap usually contains local, ethically and organically raised tallow, local sunflower oil, coconut oil, olive oil, castor oil, and local beeswax. The liquid I usually use is water, though sometimes I use goat milk, beer, or tea. I often add vegetable matter and clay to the soap. These differences will be indicated.
