About Meadow's Pond Soaps

My soap varieties change with the availability of ingredients.  I make soap in our “green”, off the grid home in the woods, using the wood stove in the winter.  When a neighbor calls and offers her calendula and chamomile flowers, it's time to make calendula-chamomile soap. When another says,  “Come and get some rose hips before the birds eat all of them”, it's time to pick their rose hips and infuse them in oil for future rose hip soap. And, when a pig farmer lets me know they are getting ready to process their pigs, I say, “Yes, save me the fat.”  Many people in Canterbury have products to offer for use in my soaps and I'm always happy to add more varieties to my list.  Unfortunately, there are some varieties that are limited editions or I am out of because of  farmers' choices.  For example, I was able to make some beautiful sheep tallow soap but the farmer decided to discontinue raising sheep.  Therefore, no more Ewe Eucalyptus soap.  Unfortunately, another local farmer decided to end their farming ventures altogether.
So, enjoy the soaps while they are available.  And give me your ideas, too.
