Coffee Oatmeal Stout Soap

15 December, 2014 0 comments Leave a comment

     Last minute shoppers are going to love our Limited Edition ‘Coffee Oatmeal Stout Soap’, available Thursday December 18th at Dwell Local and Autonomy Tattoo and body piercing. We added Minnesota brewed, Brau Brothers Moo Joos – oatmeal milk stout, to olive oil, coconut oil and organic palm oil to create an intoxicating lather.  We put a little coffee in the bottom layer and oatmeal in the top to gently exfoliate your skin. We scented our Limited edition stout soap with tobacco and bay leaf fragrance oil; we hope you love this special, rich, woody scent as much as we do.  Available December 18 on our website, Dwell local and Autonomy while supplies last! Enjoy this fine Minnesota brewed and re-brewed stout without losing your faculties! It’s good clean fun just in time for Christmas! Cheers!  


Thanks for your support!

Yesterday Jon, Zoe and I celebrated our nephews, Ben and Blaine’s High School graduations with family at my sister’s place in Oronoco. We have seen a great deal of rain in southern Minnesota recently, the past 60 days or so… so it was so fabulous to see sunshine for the festivities. The sun also shone on Adorn {Furniture Rehab} shop owner Melissa Wood’s wedding day! Congratulations Melissa and Tony we are so happy the sun made an appearance on your very special day! We got home from the party to find a package all the way from Connecticut! The Great Soap Company Founder, Sandra Pike McShane made a beautiful stepping stone featuring our logo. Sandra is one crafty bitch and these fabulous stepping stones are her latest creative venture!

Sandra sent a nice letter confessing her addiction to Morning Dew and shared excellent soap reviews from her friends who got gift baskets (including Great soap) for Christmas! We adore your thoughtful gift and are happy you love our soap as much as we do!

While I was getting soap ready to ship to Connecticut I put together a gift box for a benefit auction next weekend. I choose an image of a vintage Indian motorcycle on a lovely wooden cigar box and loaded it with an awesome selection of Great Soap. My little brother Greg and his girlfriend Jennifer are collecting items for the ride away SMA silent auction next Saturday. Thanks Greg and Jennifer for raising awareness and money for this cause and honoring the memory of a precious little girl taken much too soon. Check out to find out how you can help.

The Great Soap Company is excited for warmer weather and a little sunshine would be awesome. We're having fun working on new products for you. We used local fresh goats milk in our soap and scented it with cut grass fragrance oil, the interesting combination is currently curing. find out how it turns out right here on our blog.  Have a fun, safe summer!

Have Fun, play hard and get dirty, we’ll clean you up naturally.
