About a month ago, I was sent a small package from Tierra Verde Soaps in Lubbock, Texas. Inside was a bar of handmade natural soap, which I have been using ever since I opened the package. This soap, which is still in my shower, was labeled Barley and Hops (Pale Ale & Honey) and contained barley flakes, honey, and Santa Fe pale ale. Sweet – a soap made from one of my favorite microbrews! It smells great and works really well, both of which are important aspects of a soap in my book. The basic formula for all their soaps is olive oil, organic, sustainably-farmed palm oil, lye, filtered water, coconut oil and additives such as goat’s milk, butters, clay, orange peel, oatmeal, barley, vegetable juice, fruit juice, various milks, and even beer. Take a look at how nice their stuff looks:

The colors of the soaps are the result of the essential oils themselves, clays, oxides, charcoal, herbs, vegetable or fruit purees etc., and only quality essential oils are used – no synthetic scents. The packing is minimal and/or recycled. And the best part? The soaps are handmade by a mom who considers her soaps her “functional art”, so you are supporting a small artisan business by purchasing from her. I am all for the small independent business owner over faceless corporations, so I love what Michele stands for. If you are interested in seeing what other soaps she makes, head over to Tierra Verde Soaps and check out her beautiful work. There is also free shipping for readers from Wednesday February 17 – Saturday February 20 in case you feel like picking up a bar or two. In the meantime, however, she has given me 2 bars of her soap to give away to some lucky readers of The Good Human!

  1. wow.. the soaps look like little pretty cakes! the names rock.. but i love peace,love,patchouli.. i will be shopping there today. plus all the goodies they are made of are fantastic

  2. OMG! These bars of soap look like homemade fudge! Are you sure this is really soap and not fudge? The Peace, Love & Patchouli and the Orange U Happy sound wonderful.

    Thank you!

  3. I would have to go with the No Nonscents bar. I’m always afraid that I’ll pick the wrong scent. These are probably great as stocking stuffers and small gifts. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I’ll definitely be going back!

  4. They look good enough to eat! Orange U Happy is such a wonderful color and must smell great too. I’m also curious about the one that is coming soon. What are the elements of that one?

  5. I’d go with the Barley Hops, mostly because I could convince my boyfriend to use anything “natural” if it was made with beer!

  6. They do look like food, so Orange U Happy would be my pick if I were one of the lucky winners. Thanks, Michele, and thanks to you, Good Human!

  7. WOW! All of there selections are so beautiful! I love a good bar of soap! If I could choose any one from there shop, I would try, Fleur de lis!!! It is a beautiful name, a lovely symbol, beautiful colors and I’m sure it smells wonderful!

  8. Thank you for letting us know about this shop! The long bars look like fudge! First, I thought Orange U Happy was my favorite, then after reading the blog, I’d also like to try Chill or Herbacious.

  9. All these soaps look wonderful, but if I am chosen, I would prefer to have “Orange U Happy”. Citrus is my favorite! Thanks for the soapy giveaway.

  10. I’ve just bookmarked that site — the photographs are luscious. I’d have to go with Fleur de Lis if I won, because mmm, cloves, but both of the barley soaps are very tempting, too.

  11. If the kids at my old high school found out that this soap has ale in it, they’d probably eat it. Those people had only one thing on their minds: getting drunk.

  12. “Orange you happy?” Why yes, I would be very happy to receive this citrusy soap, especially since orange is a favorite color! (Looks like sherbet, too — another fave.)
