|"When Grandma brought her soap pot from Scotland in 1905, she had no idea she was founding a family business. Although she was only twelve, she managed to help support herself and six brothers by making soap and baskets.|
|"Wherever we go to demonstrate our craft, we are privileged to hear many family stories about making soap. The past has a legacy for all of us, and we hope to continue making Grandma's soap in her pot for at least five more generations..."|
|Using a 200 year old Burnett family recipe and a fifth generation iron soap pot, Deborraha Burnett makes Scottish Lye Soap at the No Sweat Soap Factory in Mountain View, Arkansas. The Factory may be found at Living History events, old-time music festivals, and craft fairs.|
We suggest you unwrap the soap when you receive it so each bar can continue to dry and cure. Our Soap Tips page has more information about taking care of and using your soap.
Gentle Enough for a Baby... Many people have an immediate negative reaction to the thought of using Lye Soap. What we find on the market today labeled as "soap" is in most cases a detergent that has been created from petroleum based products.
What most people do not realize is that soap is the result of a chemical process called "saponification." When the tallow used in Scottish Lye Soap is mixed with sodium hydroxide (lye), it splits into fatty acids and glycerin. The fatty acid combines with the sodium, and the result is a gentle cleansing substance -- true soap, as it was made generations ago.
