This fir needle soap is handcrafted at Bedrock Tree Farm in Wakefield, Rhode Island using fir needles harvested from their own trees. Each Man Bar is made with a base of coconut oil, shea butter, and aloe which is then mixed with Bedrock’s own fir needles (fresh and powdered) with added essential and fragrance oils. Additional ingredients are palm oil, safflower oil, glycerin, purified water, sodium hydroxide (saponifying agent), sorbitol (moisturizer), sorbitan oleate (emulsifier) and soybean protein (conditioner).
Each bar of soap is made with two layers. The lighter side of the soap is the first pour before fir needles are added, giving your soap a smooth side. The darker side is the second pour, and is packed with fir needle powder for fragrance, fir needle property benefits, and to provide exfoliation.
Research tells us that the oils in fir needles have anti-microbial (kills bacteria, fungi), anti-septic (reduces possiblity of infection), and anti-catarrhal (reduces inflammation of mucous membranes) properties.
Bedrock Tree Farm is one of our farm partners. It is so rocky that it’s difficult to tell if there are more rocks or trees on their farm!
If you like the smell of an evergreen forest, fresh pine garland, or Christmas tree, then you will love this Fir Needle Soap.
