Availability: Usually ships the next business day
Our Fir Needle Liquid soap contains fir needle powder and essential oils. It is made with naturally saponified vegetable oils and a high level of glycerine added with no sulfates, surfactants or detergents. It is mild to the skin with great natural cleaning power.

Research tells us that the oils in fir needles have anti-microbial (kills bacteria, fungi), anti-septic (reduces possibility of infection), and anti-catarrhal (reduces inflammation of mucous membranes) properties. 

Ingredients: Purified Water, Potassium Hydroxide, Glycerine, Cocos nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Olea europaea L (Olive Oil), Abies Balsamea (Fir) Oil, Abies Balsamea (Fir) Powder, Naturally Derived Fragrance, Oleic Acid, Chromium Oxide (Mineral Pigment Green)

There are two types of lye used by soapmakers - sodium hydroxide and potassium hydroxide. Sodium hydroxide is used to make solid soap; potassium hydroxide is used to make liquid soaps.

Yes, lye is necessary in all handcrafted soaps made from scratch. If there isn't any lye, there isn't any soap. It is the reaction between the lye and the oils that produces soap.

Once that reaction (called saponification) is complete, all of the lye is converted into soap; there is no lye remaining in the finished soap.

We have read that in the olden days the needles were used in sweat baths, which can be considered equivalent to a sauna, handfuls of fir needles placed on live coals would be used as a scent. The people taking the sweat baths would inhale the vapors to help in clearing up the congestion in the chest due to colds and persistent coughs.

Emotionally it is said to be grounding and calming.

If you just handled raw chicken or sliced up some onions, wash your hands with this fir needle liquid soap. No lingering odors when you tip that wine glass to your lips.
