Such a beautiful bar with a wonderful scent! Our own Honeysuckle & Calendula has so many wonderful ingredients. From the fragrance to the oil and butter base, this bar is special! Since we introduced this bar almost two years ago it has quickly became a customer favorite. So, lets look at why this bar continues to be a favorite.
The most important factor for soap has to be it's oil base, this bar combines both oils and butters to make the creamy lather. The oils included in the ingredients are olive oil, sunflower oil ( infused with calendula petals, hence the name), palm oil, coconut oil and castor oil. Then we add in Shea butter and mango butter for a more moisture promoting bar. Later we started adding silk protein to the ingredients which makes the lather that much more silky. Next we add a wonderful fragrance oil, which has been created by blending natural oils. This floral scent is just lovely, sweet and intoxicating much like the flower itself. Then we swirl the top with a golden mica and add another dusting with a sparkling white mica, what a stunning bar of soap this is. This is a perfect gift for anyone that loves the floral scent of honeysuckle or that special treat for yourself, either way your going to love this bar!
This next bar is the perfect all around soap for the entire family. Mild and gentle without a scent, this bar has been formulated for everyone! We use fresh goats milk along with olive, sunflower, coconut and castor oil and finely ground organic gluten-free oatmeal as a gentle exfoliant. To add to the gentle nature of this bar we combine two wonderful essential oils and add this to the mix. First is Copaiba essential oil. This oil is derived from tree resin collected from the copaiba tree. The tree is primarily grown in South America mainly Brazil. The oil has properties known to ease symptoms associated with pain and inflammation. It also has been known as an anti-microbial and they are even studying it for using against cancer. This is one oil I always have at hand. The next oil is Benzion essential oil. Another resin oil that has been used for centuries in the perfume industry as a light vanilla like scent and as a fixative for other scents. It has been known to tighten skin and address issues like psoriasis and eczema. Together they give this bar a wonderful very light vanilla like aroma. This is one of our top sellers, we just love this bar and it will always be on our list!
This wonderful bar is one of our goat's milk bars and one of the original blends we put together when starting our business. We blend goat's milk with olive oil, coconut oil and castor oil for a creamy lathering base. Then comes this awesome blend of scents created by the Bulgarian lavender, orange and patchouli essential oils, yes this is an essential only bar! Coloring for this bar is created with mica and orange wax, lightly colored lavender swirled with a bright orange. Simple and beautiful!
Both lavender and patchouli oils are known for a soothing and calming effect to help ease tension and relax. Orange essential oil is uplifting, what a perfect blend to help wind you down. This bar will be available April 30th 2021 for purchase on our website and available at Inspire Farms May 12th!
Just look at these new bars! We are so excited to offer new batches of our customer favorites and also two new blends, Pumice & Clay and our new floral Japanese Cherry Blossom. Both of these bars are made with two different oil bases, Pumice & Clay is made with our olive, coconut, palm and castor base and the Japanese Cherry Blossom has our coconut milk base. These two very different bars are sure to be liked by two very different personalities. The Pumice & Clay is sure to be a hit with mechanics, gardeners and those wanting a bar to rid their hands of grease and grime. The bars also have added Himalayan Pink Salt and Pascalite Clay to help with the cleansing properties. Scenting this bar are the essential oils of peppermint & rosemary with a splash of Midnight Waters fragrance oil.
Next is our Japanese Cherry Blossom, this bar has a beautiful light floral & fruity scent, much like a certain bath and body store's famous product. We paired this scent with our coconut milk base that has silk protein added for a luxurious creamy lather. We colored this bar with blue, pink and amber mica along with a bit of rose kaolin clay. We couldn't be happier with how this bar turned out. A perfect gift for a special someone in your life.
We also have included a picture of these gift bundles we are offering to promote our Japanese Cherry Blossom bars. We will have only three available. They will contain one each of the following items: one fabric basket, one hand towel, one washcloth, one scrubby, one bar of the Japanese Cherry Blossom, one jar of Japanese Cherry Blossom body butter and a wood soap pallet. There will be one blue basket with fuchsia scrubby, one tan basket with light green scrubby and one tan basket with light pink scrubby. These bundles will be $45.00 each and are the perfect all in one gift especially for Mothers Day. They will be available for purchase on the website starting tomorrow and can be shipped as well.
Also starting tomorrow we will be doing a single bar showcase of each of these bars. Keep a look out!

We finally have our Honeysuckle & Calendula curing and getting ready to add to our stock! Pictured below is a photo from last years batch from January, but wait until you see our new batch, it turned out absolutely gorgeous! Pictures will be added for this bar next weekend. This customer favorite is a beautifully scented shea and mango butter bar that has added silk protein for a silky lather. Such a treat in the shower or bath. The fragrance oil is a natural blend of floral oils, this has been the only naturally created fragrance oil I have been happy with, it has a nice fragrance and it also has a long lasting scent. We will only have 24 bars available, let us know if you would like to pre-order.
Next is our number one selling bar our Fresh & Clean. This charcoal and French green clay bar always sells out! The popular blend of essential oils (peppermint, spearmint, lemon, thyme, rosemary, wintergreen, litsea cubeba and menthol crystals) is what makes this bar a favorite. Also added are coconut activated charcoal, pascalite clay and French green clay. This is a great morning pick me up bar, it really packs a punch. Also there are only 24 bars available for this batch and we are taking pre-orders on these as well.
Hope your weekend was relaxing and may your week be fantastic!
Yes we are slowly, very slowly, getting our different blends made and restocked. These last few months have been trying and it has affected our soap making. We will be getting all of them made and restocked in the coming weeks. But on a more positive note these two favorite bars will be available April 30th 2021! Lets take a look at both of these uniquely blended goat's milk bars.
First we have the Sweet Lavender bar, lavender, orange and patchouli. These bars are an essential oil only bar. We combine Bulgarian lavender, orange, patchouli and litsea cubeba for a very calming and soothing bar of soap. The colors are created by micas, the essential oils themselves and orange wax for the orange color. This time we added a bit of white kaolin clay to make the colors more pastel. The oil blend gives this bar a gentle cleaning action, no wonder this is such a popular bar!
Secondly, is our Goat's Milk & Oatmeal bar. Another of our popular goat's milk blends this bar has a very light vanilla-like scent created by the benzion essential oil. This thick resin has some wonderful properties you must check out. Also added to this bar is the essential oil copaiba, this is one of my favorite essential oils! I encourage all to research on this wonderful oil. We also add gluten-free oatmeal ground super fine for a gentle exfoliant and our oil base is a gentle blend of olive, sunflower, coconut and castor oils which makes for the perfect all around family soap. There are no strong odors in this bar although it is not unscented. Just pleasant and mild.
Hopefully all of you are supremely healthy and happy! We will keep adding updates as we make, cure and cut our future bars, so keep calm and carry on friends!!!!

This new bar, Inspired By Tiffiny, was created exclusively for Inspire Farms. It really was inspired by Tiffiny Lilley and of course she will tell you that the color teal is her favorite! This beautiful bar mixes creamy white with teal swirls, we mixed French green clay with our own blend of micas to achieve this color. To scent this bar we added the essential oils of spearmint, lemon, thyme and litsea cubeba. Also added is a bit of lemon creme fragrance oil to boost the lemon scent. This is the perfect kitchen or bath bar. Lemon and thyme are both known for their anti-microbial boosting properties and spearmint is both soothing and cooling while also smelling slightly sweet. We think this blend is uniquely uplifting and bright, just like Tiffiny! They are available now at Inspire Farms along with some of our other popular soap bars. Just to let you know though, they are going fast! So, head on over to Inspire Farms at 206 E Main Street in Mesa Arizona to pick up a bar or two and while your there say "Hi" to Tiffiny and browse this amazing store!
After researching and deciding on our changes to our old Milk & Honey bar, we are happy to announce that our Buttermilk Baby is finally here. Our new changes included not only a name change but an ingredient change as well. We no longer are making this bar with goat's milk. We made a switch to powdered buttermilk and are very happy with the results. This bar has one of the best oil and butter blends in its base, olive, sunflower, avocado and shea butter. This all makes for a beautiful lather with gentle cleansing. To top it all off we add just enough honey to give this bar a creamy lather that has a slight honey scent. This bar is perfect for every member of the household, including your youngest family members.
Next we have our Lavender and Spearmint goat's milk bars. These two essential oils pair so nicely together. This popular bar is beautiful and the scent is calming and up-lifting at the same time. One of our customer favorites, these bars sell out fast, get yours while they are in stock!
Lastly, we have a new bar made exclusively for Inspire Farms. We named this new bar Inspired by Tiffiny! Tiffiny is the owner of Inspire Farms and if you have never visited, well you just need to stop by. Her store is very unique to say the least. You can get organic feed for you chickens and other livestock and pets, she has products for your garden, eggs and raw milk are available, some yummy treats, soy candles and the list goes on. Oh! And don't forget, Desert Blossom Soap of course! This beautiful bar is not available on our website, it is only at Inspire Farms located at 206 E Main Street Mesa Arizona. So come down say "Hi" and browse the store!
Welcome to 2021! So our January 2021 is almost gone and we can't be more excited about February. January is always our catch up month after the Fall and Winter holiday rush. This year has been extraordinarily different. Some might even say it has been the most difficult year they have ever experienced. Our hope is that this new year ahead of us is much better than our past year 2020.
So the holiday devoted to the ones we love most is just around the corner and we have the beautifully scented bars Lavender & Rose, Country Rose Garden and our newest arrival the Bulgarian Lavender Castile bar on the website for purchase. Talk about the best gift ever, the wonderful oils of lavender and rose have been coveted as Valentines Day gifts forever. And these bars will not disappoint! We are experimenting with an offering of body butters to pair with these lovely scented soap bars. We have two different scents available, Lavender and Rose/Sandalwood/Bergamot. These will be at Inspire Farms located in Mesa Arizona on Wednesday along with these floral beauties for your special someone!
Also available now is our dog shampoo bar Luv Your Pup. We have changed this bar a little. The first big change is color. You will notice it no longer has the blue indigo coloring. We removed the indigo and replaced it with the Pascalite clay we added to our Fresh & Clean bar (there is a new batch available by the way :) This clay is an amazing detox clay. It is worth the time to research the benefits of Pascalite if you would like to know more. We also added glycerin to the mix. Glycerin helps attract moisture keeping their coat nice and soft. All the other ingredients are the same, yep plenty of essential oils meant to keep those pesky insects at bay.
And yes as mentioned above we have a new batch of Fresh & Clean available! This bar always sells out, get them while they are here!
And another product we are formulating is a Calendula Salve. This is a product specifically for very dry skin. Its ingredients include sunflower oil infused with Calendula flowers, lanolin, beeswax, arrowroot powder with lavender and copaiba essential oils. We add grapefruit seed extract as a natural preservative also.
All of these products will be available online and locally at Inspire Farms located at 206 E Main St., Mesa Arizona 85201. You have to check out this unique store. Stop by and say hello to Tiffiny and the crew, you just might find something special to take home with you!
