It all started from a customer request.

Fir & Cedar Soap came about as a result of a customer request.  One of my customers had requested a soap that smelled like a Christmas tree.  I thought a soap that smelled like a Christmas tree sounded like a good addition to my line, so I went to work on it.

First, of course, was the scent blend.  After some experimenting, I settled on a blend of Siberian fir and Texas cedarwood essential oils.  I even sent a little sample to our customer, and she agreed it smelled great.

Started strong, but things went downhill.

After thinking about the look and feel of the soap I decided I wanted a green swirl in it and opted to use chlorophyll.   I then made a small batch of our new Fir & Cedar soap.  It looked beautiful and smelled great!

After several weeks I used a bar and really liked it.  But as several more weeks passed it seemed that the scent was not holding as well as I expect for my soaps.  After a little longer, it appeared that the shelf life of the soap overall wasn’t as good as I would like.  So, back to the drawing board, I went.

All good in the end!

After analyzing what had been done, I decided to make several changes:

  • The chlorophyll was replaced with powdered rosemary
  • The percentage of essential oils was increased to help make the scent stronger and last longer
  • White cornmeal was added to also aid in creating a longer-lasting scent

I made a test batch of the new and improved Fir & Cedar soap and after letting it sit for several weeks could see a dramatic improvement from the earlier formulation.  I then proceeded with a regular batch of this new soap and am now happy to have it in my line of soaps.  Voila! 

Fir & Cedar – the natural soap that smells like a Christmas tree.

      I apologize but we are out of the Fir & Cedar right now and probably will not be bringing it back until next fall. Please look for it then.
