Old-Fashioned Soaps

“Lye soap” is a colloquial term for soap as the pioneers made it. Technically, it refers to the cold process method of using lye to turn fats into soap. At Herbaria, we use lye with vegetable oils such as olive oil for every bar we make. All our soaps are lye soaps. For greater detail about our soap making, see All-Natural Ingredients.

We feature four bars below with traditionally old-fashioned connotations. However, many of our other bars are equally timeless. Take a look around our web site. We offer a large selection of soaps that allow you to choose by scent, emollient and other desired features.
