Black Hills Legend!

Sylvan Lake in the Black Hills, SD

Sylvan Lake in the Black Hills, SD

My old stomping grounds is the Black Hills of South Dakota, and yes, I miss it desperately.  One of my very most favorite soaps is one I made to remind me of home.  It’s got pine and lavender essential oils and if you close your eyes and hold it to your nose, you might just end up at Slyvan Lake.

Introducing…some new goodies!

A few new products we’d like to announce!

all natural shampoo bars

All natural Shampoo Bars

Shampoo Bars (Rosemary-Mint)

We love these shampoo bars because of their creamy lather and natural ingredients.  They are easy to use and nourish your skin and scalp with olive oil, coconut oil, avacado oil, shae and cocoa butters and beeswax.  They double as body and shaving soap too, which makes them ideal for travel, camping, roadtrips and trips to the gym.
I use a apple-cider vinegar rinse with this shampoo bar.  Three parts water to 1 part apple cider vinegar.
This batch are smaller bars are priced at $5.25.


Rosemary Mint NannyGoat Soap

Made with goat’s milk, this soothing skin-loving soap is extra moisturizing.  Crisp and clean smelling with rosemary, mint and tea tree essential oils.


Old Fashioned Pine Tar Soap

Old Fashioned Pine Tar Soap

Way back in the 1800’s pine tar was used in soaps for it’s soothing and medicinal properties.  Our pine tar soap is made with this same old-fashioned ingredient.

In this batch of soap, the bars are smaller than our regular bars and are priced at $5.25.

Local Love!

We’re a tiny South Dakota business. Next month will mark year 3 for Irish Twins Soap Company.  It has been such a great experience.  One of the things that I am most grateful for, besides being able to work from my home studio and work with my beloved sister….is all of the people that I have met and befriended.

So many young entrepreneurs, farmers, food activists, restraunt owners, winery owners, magazine publishers, bloggers, designers, shop owners, grocery store managers, writers, teachers,  artists, moms and dads, and lots of wee ones. 🙂

I am grateful for the encouragement, the lessons, the sharing, the helping hands, the support and confidence that I have been shown.  I am blesssed beyond measure – and I am extremely grateful.  A heartfelt thank you you all.

If you haven’t seen my facebook post today, I awoke to a suprise in my inbox – a national blogger, K Young, from CarsFoodTravel.com had mentioned our company in their post.  CarsTravelFood.com is a travel blog which celebrates travel within the US to support our economy and support US businesses and Made in U.S. products. They are spotlighting South Dakota now.  The article features several South Dakota businesses.  Congratulations to them.  I’m proud to be in such fine company.
