Handcrafted Olive Oil Soaps
After 20 plus years of soap making, Brushy Creek Gifts is offering our exclusive line of handcrafted cold process soaps. If you would like to try a soap that contains nothing more than olive oil, distilled water, sodium hydroxide (lye), and some essential oils, well our soap is a great option. This is also a fantastic soap for folks who have skin sensitivity to other soaps.
This is a cold process soap. Cold process soapmaking is the act of mixing fixed oils such as olive oil with an alkali (such as lye). The result is a process called saponification where composition of the oils changes with the help of the lye to create a bar of soap. It all sounds complicated, but it is a fairly straight forward process. The point we are trying to make here is this is NOT a “melt and pour” soap. If that is what you want, please run over the craft store and buy it, take it home, melt it, scent it and pour it.
What Brushy Creek Gifts is offering is a line of soaps that are not offered anywhere. Some of the scents are standards that we love, and others are unique blends I have mixed up by trial and error (there have been lots of errors—not offered here!), as well as a few with fragrance oils that smell too good not to use! We have tried to relay the strength of the scents in our descriptions as best we can. You may purchase here on our website, or if you find yourself in Sioux Falls, stop in the store where we are offering a full line of unique items.
