Byrds Nest Soap – Locally Made, Natural Body Care



Truly small scale, locally made, natural soap and pure body care goods. We make a small variety of all natural soaps. We never use any synthetic ingredients or additives. There are never any synthetic colorants or perfume fragrances added. Any scents in the soaps are naturally derived, herbal or essential plant oils. We never use any coloring agents of any kind; so the soap will vary in its appearance. All soaps are made with natural ingredients, plant oils, essential oils, herbs, and lye, that’s it. All soaps are vegan, handmade, hot process and cured. Soaps are not sold by dimensions, they are approximately 5 ounces and exact cuts may vary. All of our lotions, and body butters are 100% skin conditioning, moisturizing ingredients. We never use and water or other fillers!

IMG_5512Why only natural scents and ingredients?

It’s my general thought that locally procured items and ingredients are the best way to achieve quality products, for the home and family. But it’s a fact that products used on the body, around the home, eaten, and even inhaled greatly affect our health and well being. Chemicals like acetone, benzaldehyde, benzyl acetate, benzyl alcohol, ethanol, ethyl acetate, limonene, linalool, and methylene chloride are some of the most common used in synthetic fragrance for soaps and other body products. When inhaled these chemicals are notorious for triggering migraines and can cause dizziness, nausea, irritation to the mouth, throat, eyes, skin, and headache, among other things. Little is done to regulate the cosmetics industry, and “fragrance” is considered a trade secret and thus ingredient disclosure is not required. Even so, according to the FDA fragrances are responsible for 30 percent of all allergic reactions.

Thankfully you won’t find herbs, grasses, flowers and essential plant oils on any EPA or FDA no, no lists. Not only are natural scent ingredients more in harmony with the body, but they are, well, natural. It is always our goal to purchase as many of our ingredients as possible from local industry, rather than multinational chain stores, as often as possible organic ingredients are used. These products originated for use by my own family and children, and they are made in a way that I would find suitable.
