I just wanted to say that I really appreciated all the time you took with me explaining all the different essential oils and what they are good for. I feel much more knowledgeable about essential oils and your handmade soap! I will tell my friends and family about, not only your soaps, but about your whole business philosophy. Keep doing what you're doing, the world will lay blessings upon you.
This handcrafted bar soap is made by me, Brittany, owner and artisan of Nefertem Naturals, the leaders in grass fed tallow skincare.
This soap in particular has a earthy, citrus, floral scent with a woody undertone. It is energetically sensual, attracting and exciting...thus the name.
Ingredients: Grass-fed tallow (hand-rendered by me and progressively filtered to minimize scent); organic extra virgin olive oil; organic coconut oil; purified water; sodium hydroxide; organic castor oil; patchouli essential oil; organic unrefined shea butter; grapefruit essential oil; lavender essential oil; madder root powder (natural herbal colorant), activated charcoal (from coconut); kaolin clay (natural mineral colorant) and positive intention (100% pure).
Great for face, body, hair AND shaving!
The clay makes a smooth glide for shaving and helps draw impurities from the skin. Clay is also said to replace missing minerals in the skin.
Even in hard water this soap lathers extremely well and will last for weeks if left to dry in between uses.
It is very rich and creamy and helps skin maintain hydration naturally. Because this soap does not dry out your skin, it makes an excellent all natural face wash, even for those with ultra-sensitive skin, acne, eczema or other skin ailment.
This soap is definitely considered an aromatherapy tool as the aroma is very powerful and uplifting. I use twice the industry standard of essential oils per pound which truly provides an aromatic experience like no other!
I work with a small family ranch that raises cattle the old-fashioned way: without human interruption, on green grass, with NO hormones or steroids and with respect. When the animal is processed for its beef, I receive the fat in raw form, render (simmer on low heat) the oil from it and purify it with progressively finer filters to minimize any odors. Then I freeze it to ensure it’s fresh as I make products throughout the year in small batches.
Nefertem Naturals mission is to bring the power of nature into daily routine and our products do just that!

Why Use Tallow in Your Skin Care Routine?
Because there's NOTHING like it. Tallow (only grass fed tallow is as follows, conventionally farmed cows do not contain the following benefits, in fact, their fat is loaded with pesticides, hormones and GMO grain) is rich in vitamins A, D, E (a powerful antioxidant) and K, CLA (antitumor properties) and anti-microbial palmitoleic acid.
Our skin is biologically compatible with tallow in that they both contain 50-55% saturated fats (yes, these are the good fats) which help maintain skin cell integrity and tone. Tallow and sebum (the oily secretion of our skin's sebaceous glands) consist primarily of triglycerides which allow for easy absorption of nutrients even while bathing. The connection between our skin and tallow is so close, in fact, that the Latin word sebum actually means tallow!
Tallow has been used for thousands of years by the most advanced civilizations in the world. It was only around the 1950's that tallow was vilified by the vegetable oil producers and then quickly left our diets and skin care routines. Fortunately for us, modern scientific research is proving how beneficial grass fed tallow is for our diets and skincare regiment. We are now seeing the shift back to tallow.

Thank you for making such marvelous, handmade, natural products! This soap is my absolute favorite.
This soap smells so good and like all the others, leaves your skin feeling so soft.
This soap is my favorite because it bubbles up very well and it smells great.
This soap smells so amazing that even hours after I have showered, people ask me what I am wearing. I'm not really a fan of patchouli essential oil, but in this soap, it smells very different. The citrus and lavender tone it down a lot. And I'm not the only one. The rest of my family is in love with it too.
I love the scent of this soap. It smells AMAZING
