100% pure organic Tallow soap - Kawakawa spearmint EO (Butterfly)

organic tallow kawakawa Soap

Stock Status: Sold Out

Scented with spearmint and peppermint essential oil.

100% tallow (The fat came from an organic farm here in the Marlborough Sounds and was rendered by us - we do render all our tallow ourselves).
I infused the tallow with kawakawa powder (from our garden, dehydrated and milled into a fine powder and then infused with the tallow).
I put a lot of care into the recipe - because normally 100% tallow soaps don't lather very well, I added some sugar and citric acid, which helps to get more lather and also decided to use the dual lye method. I used mainly the usual sodium hydroxide (NaOh - lye), but added a part of potassium hydroxide (KOH - lye) as well. This is usually used for liquid soaps, but has the advantage here of producing a bit more lather than a 100% NaOh soap usually would.

This soap is fragranced with Spearmint and peppermint EO, which I thought fits well with the colour of the soap.

Please be aware that natural colours do fade after a while, so might not look as bright and crisp as on the photo.
