How we created our Mechanic’s Soap

A few years ago when visiting our mechanic, I noticed his hands were grimy and black from working with greasy engine parts. I had made a “farmers” soap with pine essential oil and added pulverized pine needles for my husband for grime ridden jobs on the farm. I asked our mechanic friend to try a bar and let me know the results. A few days later he called, raving about the soap and asking if he could buy more. Other soaps had left his hands so dried out, that cracking and splitting were a problem. However, after 2 weeks of using our “farmer” bar, his hands were soft, comfortable and truly clean. In honor of our friend, we named the bar “Mechanic’s Balsam Pine”. The name indeed spoke to the hard-working man and customers now ask for it by name.
