I love all of Buffalo Gal's soaps, but oh my goodness -- this soap just smells like heaven. My husband loves it, too. It lasts a long time and has the perfect amount of lather. My new favorite!
Scented Tallow Soap (~ 5 oz)
Love natural handcrafted soap as much as we do? There's nothing quite like stepping into the shower and savoring the way a luscious, chunky bar of soap can awaken your senses.
We make our soaps the old fashioned way -- free of harsh surfactants, dyes, detergents or anything synthetic. Your great grandmother would approve!
Read each option's description and ingredient lists below, as they vary.
Myrrh & Frankincense
Our unique and luxurious Buffalo Milk Soap is a fan favorite! If you like goat's milk soap, you will love buffalo milk soap. Buffalo milk is higher in butter fat and is considered too valuable in other parts of the world for soap making. We thought it would make a deeply nourishing, creamy bar with a light, conditioning lather . . . . and it does! Rich in tallow and other decadent saturated fats, this bar is perfect for both face and body.
But we didn't stop there . . . we include other precious ingredients for promoting radiant, healthy skin that also smell amazing -- frankincense resin and myrrh gum. Boswellic acid found in frankincense resin is known as an ancient super skin healer. Myrrh gum relieves itchy skin, promotes even tone and fights premature skin aging.
This soap is scented with an exquisite essence blend by our friend at Rising Phoenix Perfumery. He has access to the best and rarest natural materials in the world. We spared no expense here. The essential scent alone costs around $8 per bar! This little slice of heaven will have you looking forward to your shower.
Ingredients: Saponified oils: grassfed tallow, shea butter, cocoa butter, and tucuma butter; water buffalo milk, frankincense resin, myrrh gum, raw honey, rhassoul clay, and essential oils of myrrh and frankincense.
If you love lavender, this Lavender Aloe Soap is the one you've been dreaming about! Lavender-infused tallow, fresh aloe vera leaf gel (from our farm), and the natural color of Brazilian purple clay make for an attractive, FRESH smelling, super soothing soap. Excellent for both face and body.
Ingredients: Saponified grassfed tallow, shea butter*, virgin castor oil*, aloe vera*, argan oil* Brazilian purple clay, lavender buds*, and lavender essential oil blend. *organic
Milk & Honey (Full Sized) - Rose Geranium
If you wish we offered a larger size of our Milk & Honey Facial Bar, you're in luck! It's perfect for gentle daily exfoliation from ingredients that are safe, effective, and practical. Our Milk & Honey Soap features the enchanting scent of Rose Geranium. We "superfat" this bar at a higher percentage so the creamy lather will leave your skin both well-cleansed and extra soft.

About Soap Making
Curious about the chemistry behind soap making? "Saponification" refers to the chemical reaction between fat and lye that results in the formation of glycerin and soap. Saponification occurs when, first, three molecules of sodium hydroxide (NaOH) are dissolved in water (H2O) and are split apart, which results in three sodium ions (Na) and three hydroxyl groups (OH). Second, a triglyceride (fat) molecule (C3H5(COOR)3) is split apart through hydrolysis, which results in a free glycerol (C3H5) and three fatty acid tails (COOR). Third, the hydroxyl groups all bond to the free glycerol to form a molecule of glycerin. Fourth, the three fatty acids each bond with one of the three sodium ions to form three molecules of soap (3NaCOOR). When the ingredients have completed the saponification process, one molecule of glycerin will be present for each three molecules of soap; no molecules of lye (sodium hydroxide) remain in the soap—they have all been split apart and used to form the soap molecules and glycerin.
Every time I try a new BGG product. I am never disappointed! This soap is no exception. I first learned of Shalley's soaps through a sample kit. I'm still using one of the unscented baby samples as face soap 3 months and counting! So far I have tried the lavender and myrrh scents well...all fabulous! The Dirty Rose soap is delicately fragranced and effectively cleansing. It is a nice size and will likely last a long time. We are so happy to keep trying Shalley's products. This is another hit that I highly recommend!
I wish Buffalo Gal made this soap year round. It smells amazing and I love the little rose petals that fall out when I open the box. A sweet, romantic surprise!
This soap has a silkiness to it that I love. It smells incredible, too! The big fat bar fits nicely in my hand and lasts a long time. I am so glad to have found this company. I have been using and loving her tallow balms for years and I don't know why I waited so long to try her soaps.
This soap is such a treat! It has a creamy texture with a light lather, plus, it is moisturizing to my dry skin. It smells like a sweet dessert with a hint of geranium. I highly recommend it to anyone!
This little slice of heaven fills my steamy shower with a rich, milky aroma. I cannot recommend this stuff enough. And the lather is so creamy. It’s so gentle on my face as well. I’ve been getting a lot of Sun recently but I just get tan and don’t deal with burns anymore.
This bar smells amazing!!!! I cannot praise it enough! I even use on my hair occasionally because it just smells so good! My skin feels soft and nourished after my shower. I do hope you consider keeping this fragrance in your soap.
The soaps I've bought here are SO good. This one smells amazing and leaves my skin really soft and hydrated. I don't even really feel the need to use lotion afterward.
Calming and cleansing. Lasts a long time and also works great for shaving my legs. Definitely something I will continue to reorder.
Love this soap. scent is not overwhelming, perfect hint of lavender. Leaves skin soft and silky.
