What is MY Favorite Crescent Mountain Soap Product?

Glad you asked! I was asked what is my favorite Crescent Mountain Soap product. Well, I should say "ALL of them!" LOL! But to be honest, I do have a favorite. I first learned to make soap because I wanted to control what was in my soap. The next step was to make a shampoo that would be chemical free. I had tried several brands of dandruff shampoos and all they did was dry my head out even more! So I searched for a recipe for shampoo and came across a shampoo bar. I followed the directions and made the shampoo bar, adding lemongrass and tea tree essential oils. My hair is longer than my shoulders so I needed a conditioner and found that I could use apple cider vinegar. I have to admit that it took me a few washes to get used to the different texture of my hair but I love the way my hair feels clean. I have been using Crescent Mountain Soap shampoo bars for over 2 years now and have several customers who also use it. I also make the shampoo bar with peppermint and tea tree essential oils.

So, now you know... my favorite Crescent Mountain Soap product is a shampoo bar!

Folk School at Camp Mikell

Have you ever agreed to do something and then think… Why? Why did I say I would do that?!? Well that’s exactly how I felt when I agreed to teach a soapmaking class at Camp Mikell’s Folk School! I have been making hot processed soap for about 3 years, but I’ve been making basically the same recipe. I decided that I should study up on a few things before I taught the class. The more I studied, a little panic set in! I realized that there is so much I need and want to learn! But I pressed on!
