School House Soaps began in 2005 out of a desire to create clean, real soap for my family. Extensive research of ingredients and recipes took place, followed by an abundance of test batches. I personally make all the soaps in the kitchen of a circa 1864 former schoolhouse in southeast, Michigan.
The soaps are olive oil-based; they gently clean while moisturizing and soothing skin. They are handcrafted using the cold process method. Dried herbs or flowers are infused in extra virgin olive oil for at least six weeks for the oil to take in the essence of the plant. Ingredients are precisely measured, methodically combined, stirred, poured into a lined wooden mold, rested overnight, hand-cut into bars, and cured for at least six weeks. Each batch makes 36 bars with each bar weighing 5 plus ounces.
Comfrey Calendula Salve is also made at the school, a soothing healing salve for dry and chapped skin, eczema, callused heels, insect bites, baby bottoms, minor burns, scrapes and cuts. It is available in 2 ounce, white milk glass and blue glass jars.
