Cats in the Cradle Farmhouse Soaps

Handcrafted Artisan Soaps, Herbal Skin Care, Beeswax Castings

Welcome to March offerings at Cats in the Cradle Farmhouse Soaps!  We are so happy to join the talented artists on this unique site and hope you will enjoy our fine handcrafted soaps.  Located in the beautiful Lakes Region of New Hampshire, I have been making herbal soaps and skin care products from our old 1830's farmhouse since 1991.   The business was started as a means to support the many homeless and injured cats that found their way to our old barn.  Though we found homes for some, many became our own pets and at one time we had 28 housecats and several barn cats too.   Today we dote on a few very spoiled kitties.  I will be offering new soaps each month and I think you will find them to be the nicest soaps you've ever tried. I also make beeswax castings from antique and reproduction molds.  Beautiful vintage packaging is my specialty and samples are included with each order.  Thanks so much for stopping by!   Learn more about Cats in the Cradle Farmhouse Soaps at: www.catsinthecradlesoap.com   We are also on Etsy at www.etsy.com/shop/catsinthecradlesoap

Pure unscented beef tallow soap made with tallow from GRASS FED cattle, much like the old fashioned soaps made in open kettles by our grandmothers and great grandmothers on the open plains. Very creamy lather and wonderful for the skin, my soap is made in small batches with the utmost care from fresh unadulterated beef tallow and cured for a long time to ensure a gentle soap that will last a long time. Beef tallow has been found to be a marvelous, nourishing skin enhancer and is one of the safest fats to use on your skin.

Here is a beautiful beeswax casting of a spinner ,made from an antique German or Swiss reproduction mold from pure, fragrant, solid beeswax. The beeswax comes from a local beekeeper and is getting very hard to come by and quite expensive, thus I do not make these castings very often any more. I have a large collection of antique and reproduction molds collected over many years and I am happy to be able to offer this beautiful casting which measures 9 1/4" tall by 5 1/2" wide and is about 1/4" thick. This beeswax is a combination of darker beeswax made from bees that fed on buckwheat mixed with a lighter honey colored wax to give a lovely color and patina all around. The casting retains all the beautiful intricate details (including flaws) of the original wooden mold.. A wonderful gift for anyone who spins. Will add both fragrance and beauty to your home. Comes with a care tag. Carefully packaged, shipping will be $8
